TEAM NEWS | Stockley set for full debut with Shinnie returning to starting lineup

Jayden Stockley will make his full Charlton debut in this evening’s game against Milton Keynes Dons at Stadium MK.

The striker joined on loan from Preston North End on Friday and impressed from the bench in Saturday’s draw with Swindon Town.

Andrew Shinnie returns to the starting lineup after scoring a late equaliser from the bench at the weekend and Ben Purrington also starts replacing Ian Maatsen who limped off on Saturday. 

Conor Washington, who scored in his last start at Peterborough United, is also in the first XI with Lee Bowyer making four changes from Saturday.

The Addicks may lineup in the 4-4-2 that they started Saturday’s game in or the 4-diamond-2 used for much of the second half.

Adam Matthews, Chris Gunter, Deji Oshilaja and Purrington are expected to start as a back four in front of Ben Amos. Darren Pratley, Jake Forster-Caskey, Shinnie and Liam Millar will likely make up a midfield four behind the front two of Stockley and Washington.

The Addicks could easily move to a 4-3-3 formation with Washington and Millar either side of Stockley.

Ashley Maynard-Brewer returns to the bench after missing two games through concussion protocol. He is joined by Jason Pearce, the returning Ben Watson, Albie Morgan, Jonny Williams, Chuks Aneke and Ronnie Schwartz.

Charlton: Amos; Matthews, Gunter, Oshilaja, Purrington; Shinnie, Pratley (C), Forster-Caskey, Millar; Stockley, Washington

Substitutes: Maynard-Brewer, Pearce, Watson, Morgan, Williams, Aneke, Schwartz
