TEAM NEWS | Nine changes for FA Cup tie as Henderson starts

Stephen Henderson will make his first start of the season in this afternoon’s Emirates FA Cup tie against Havant & Waterlooville at The Valley (3pm) as Johnnie Jackson makes nine changes.

Akin Famewo and Jayden Stockley are the only survivors from the midweek draw against high-flying Rotherham United in SE7, while academy graduates Charles Clayden and Mason Burstow feature on the bench.

Goalkeeper Henderson starts in between the sticks, enjoying his first Charlton start since February 2016, with Sean Clare, Deji Elerewe, Famewo and Souaré likely to form the backline ahead of the Irishman.

Harry Arter and Albie Morgan are expected to man the midfield, while Corey Blackett-Taylor and Charlie Kirk will operate wide, looking to provide service to Josh Davison and skipper Stockley.

Clayden and Burstow are joined on the bench by Craig MacGillivray, Jason Pearce, George Dobson, Ben Watson, Elliot Lee, Diallang Jaiyesimi and Conor Washington.
