Lyle Taylor returns to the Charlton starting line-up for the first time since August.

The striker missed 13 weeks with an injury sustained on international and returns today after making appearances from the substitutes bench in each of the Addicks last three games. 

Taylor is one of two changes made by Lee Bowyer with Alfie Doughty also coming into the starting line-up with Jason Pearce and Albie Morgan moving to the bench.

It means Naby Sarr will make his 100th appearance for the Addicks as he starts at centre half alongside Tom Lockyer.

It looks like the Addicks will play a 4-4-2 or a 4-diamond-2. Either way, Adam Matthews and Ben Purrington will join Lockyer and Sarr in the backline in front of Dillon Phillips.

If it is a traditional 4-4-2 Jonathan Leko and Alfie Doughty will operate from the wing with Conor Gallagher and Darren Pratley in central midfield. If Bowyer opts for a diamond, Pratley will hold with Gallagher and Doughty ahead of him and Leko behind the front two of Taylor and Macauley Bonne. 

The Addicks bench is looking more experienced in recent weeks with Ashley Maynard-Brewer, Deji Oshilaja, Joe Ledley, Chris Solly and Ben Dempsey joining Pearce and Morgan on the bench.

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

Subs (not used): Maynard-Brewer, Solly, Pearce, Oshilaja, Ledley, Dempsey, Morgan
