TEAM NEWS | Solly, Lockyer and Sarr return for Huddersfield Town clash

Chris Solly, Tom Lockyer and Naby Sarr have returned to the Charlton lineup for this evening’s game against Huddersfield Town.

Fans not able to get to The Valley this evening can watch the action live on Valley Pass and the Valley Pass app. Our production will offer a multi-camera broadcast of the game with action replays of the key moments, as well as Charlton commentary from Terry Smith and Greg Stubley. 

The trio replace Adam Matthews, Deji Oshilaja and Joe Ledley who move to the bench. There is also a place on the bench for long-term absentee Lyle Taylor who returned from injury on Saturday as a second half substitute.

It means the Addicks may well line up in a 5-4-1 formation with Dillon Phillips in goal behind a defence of Solly, Lockyer, Jason Pearce, Sarr and Ben Purrington. Jon Leko, Darren Pratley, Conor Gallagher and Alfie Doughty could operate as a midfield four behind Macauley Bonne.

However, Lee Bowyer may opt for a 3-5-2 formation, which he has used more often. In this formation Leko would likely partner Bonne up front with Doughty playing in a midfield trio alongside Pratley and Gallagher.

Academy graduates Ashley Maynard-Brewer, Albie Morgan and James Vennings are also on the bench.

Charlton: Phillips; Solly, Lockyer, Pearce (C), Sarr, Purrington; Pratley, Gallagher, Doughty; Bonne, Leko

Substitutes: Maynard-Brewer, Matthews, Oshilaja, Ledley, Morgan, Vennings, Taylor
