TEAM NEWS | Aneke starts Cheltenham clash

Chuks Aneke starts this afternoon’s Sky Bet League One encounter against Cheltenham Town at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium as Johnnie Jackson makes five changes.

The forward will lead the Addicks’ line alongside 18-year-old Mason Burstow, who earns his first league start for the club, while Ryan Inniss returns to captain Jackson’s side.

Elsewhere, Adam Matthews and Albie Morgan also start as Jason Pearce, Ben Purrington, Alex Gilbey and Jonathan Leko are named among the substitutes bench.

Henderson continues in goal, with Inniss operating alongside Sean Clare and Akin Famewo in the Addicks’ back-three. Matthews and Diallang Jaiyesimi are expected to occupy wing-back roles with Morgan, George Dobson and Elliot Lee patrolling in midfield, behind a front two of Aneke and Burstow.

Pearce, Purrington, Gilbey and Leko are joined on the bench by Nathan Harness, Ben Watson and Corey Blackett-Taylor.

The nature of the three-day turnaround means today's fixture falls too soon for Conor Washington, who misses out with a minor niggle.

Commenting on the absence of Craig MacGillivray, Jackson told CharltonTV: “Henderson stays in goal; Macca is still away spending time with his family after the birth of his daughter."

Charlton: Henderson; Clare, Inniss (c), Famewo; Matthews, Morgan, Dobson, Lee, Jaiyesimi; Burstow, Aneke

Subs: Harness, Pearce, Purrington, Watson, Gilbey, Blackett-Taylor, Leko
