Hemed starts against Birmingham City as the Addicks make two changes

Tomer Hemed will make his first start for the Addicks since arriving from Brighton & Hove Albion last month in today's game against Birmingham City at The Valley.

Hemed replaces Lyle Taylor who misses out after picking up a knock on international duty.

Charlton manager Lee Bowyer has made two changes from the team that beat Reading at the end of August. The other change sees Erhum Oztumer, who made an impressive debut against Nottingham Forest last month, replace Jonny Williams. The Welsh international, who excelled for his country in mid-week, is on the bench for today's game.

Charlton will look to mark 100 years of The Valley with a win against the Blues and continue to extend their unbeaten start to the Sky Bet Championship.

Fans not able to make The Valley can follow the game live on Valley Pass. International fans can watch the game live from as little as £5, while domestic fans can listen to the game from £4. For more information click here.

The Addicks are expected to line-up in a 4-diamond-2 formation with Dillon Phillps in goal behind a back line of Chris Solly, Tom Lockyer, skipper Jason Pearce and Ben Purrington.

Sam Field will likely hold at the base of the diamond with Josh Cullen and Conor Gallagher ahead of him and Oztumer just behind the front two of Hemed and Jonathan Leko.
