MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Crewe Alexandra

Nigel Adkins' will be looking for his side to bounce straight back from a first defeat in 11 as the Addicks continue their quest for the play-offs with a clash against Crewe Alexandra at The Valley on Tuesday evening.

Charlton's fate remains in their hands with four games to go and games in hand over most of their rivals as they sit in eighth position, two points off of both fifth and sixth place.

Crewe, meanwhile, sit comfortably in 15th position in their first season back in the third tier with only pride to play for with one victory picked up in their last five.

Ryan Inniss is likely to be available despite being withdrawn late on against Peterborough United on Saturday, while Ian Maatsen is set for a return to the squad.

Diallang Jaiyesimi will be sidelined, however, having picked up a hamstring injury at the weekend.

For Crewe, long-term absentees Oli Finney and Josh Lundstram have returned to training, but won't be available on Tuesday evening.

Charlton boss Nigel Adkins: “Because of where Crewe are in the league table and where we are, and also because we’re at home, we have to avoid the expectation that all we have to do is just turn up and that we should win the game. We know it’s going to be challenging. The preparation will be right because we know we have got to give the opposition all the respect they deserve. But likewise we want to impose ourselves on them and do what we want to do.”

Crewe boss David Artell: “I don’t need to provide the motivation for the players. That is why the word ‘professional’ comes before footballer. It doesn’t matter if it is 3 games gone, 15 games, 30 or we have three games left, the players have to the motivation to do their jobs and represent the club.

“Pulling the shirt on and representing this football club should be enough for any player.

Charlton and Crewe have met on only five previous occasions, with the Addicks winning all five.

The Londoners ran out 2-0 winners in the reverse fixture on the opening day of the season with Alfie Doughty and Conor Washington finding the net.

The last meeting in SE7 came in January 2000, with Graham Stuart bagging the only goal in a 1-0 win.

Trevor Kettle will take charge of proceedings on Tuesday. He has refereed 32 games this term, producing 89 yellow cards and five reds.

He last refereed the Addicks for the 4-4 draw with Rochdale at The Valley in January in which he sent off Jason Pearce late on.
