MATCH PREVIEW | Derby County v Charlton

Charlton will no doubt be looking to make it back-to-back wins when they make the trip up to Derby County on Monday night (7.45).

Having finally broken their torrid winless run with a 3-2 win over Bristol City on Boxing Day, the Addicks will travel to Pride Park with the Rams out of form themselves having not won in seven games.

Having come off the field prematurely in the game against QPR, it was confirmed that Jonathan Leko's loan spell would be cut short having been ruled out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury, while Lee Bowyer will check on Conor Gallagher's fitness after the midfielder suffered a blow to his hip on Boxing Day

On the flip-side, Bowyer did provide some positive news in the form of Chuks Aneke, Tomer Hemed and Jonny Williams all doing outside work and edging closer to fitness, though the trio will still be unavailable for the match against the Rams.

Also out of contention are Josh Cullen, Jake Forster-Caskey, Sam Field, Beram Kayal, George Lapslie, Lewis Page and Ben Amos.

For Derby, George Evans has been ruled out having picked up a calf injury in training while fellow midfielders Matt Clark, Tom Huddlestone and Graeme Shinnie.

Mason Bennett is also unavailable with an ankle injury and Ikechi Anya is still to be assessed but will be unlikely to play a part in the game against the Addicks. Tom Lawrence will also miss out having picked up his 10th booking of the season in Derby's 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic on Boxing Day.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer: "This is an important part of the season for me. There's a lot of points to be won... In the first part of the season we did well and we're above where we expected to be. Now we start again."

Derby County's Martyn Waghorn: "We have games coming up at home now that we need to use and get three points against Charlton on Monday night. If you go on a little run in this league, nine points in the space of a week and you can get yourself up there.

“At the moment, that’s important for us to get away from the area we are in, because it is not good enough."

Charlton's 3-0 win earlier this season means the Addicks now have beaten the Rams on 30 occasions, lost 36 times and played out 20 draws.

The last time Charlton tasted victory at Pride Park was back in February 1999 when goals from Andy Hunt and Martin Pringle saw the Addicks help themselves to all three points in the Premier League.

The referee on Monday night will be Jeremy Simpson who has overseen 11 Championship games this season, handing out 41 yellow cards and four reds. He last took charge of a Charlton game back in September 2018 when Charlton cruised to a 2-0 victory at Bradford City.

His assistants will be Graham Kane and Michael George while Graham Salisbury will be the Fourth Official.
