TEAM NEWS | MacGillivray and Blackett-Taylor start Fleetwood fixture

Craig MacGillivray and Corey Blackett-Taylor both start this afternoon’s Sky Bet League One clash against Fleetwood Town at The Valley as Johnnie Jackson makes two changes.

MacGillivray is restored in goal following the birth of his daughter and Blackett-Taylor earns his first league start since late November, while Conor Washington is named among the Addicks’ substitutes bench having shaken off a hamstring niggle.

Meanwhile, today’s game falls too soon for new signing Juan Castillo, who trained with the Addicks for the first time on Friday following a period of isolation having recently returned a positive COVID-19 test.

Sean Clare and Akin Famewo will operate either side of skipper Ryan Inniss in Jackson’s back three, with Diallang Jaiyesimi and Blackett-Taylor expected to occupy wing-back roles.

Albie Morgan, George Dobson and Elliot Lee will man an unchanged midfield, behind a front two of Mason Burstow and Chuks Aneke, who makes his first start in SE7 since rejoining the Addicks from Birmingham City.

Washington is joined on the bench by Stephen Henderson, Jason Pearce, Ben Purrington, Ben Watson, Alex Gilbey and Jonathan Leko.

Charlton: MacGillivray; Clare, Inniss (c), Famewo; Jaiyesimi, Morgan, Dobson, Lee, Blackett-Taylor; Burstow, Aneke

Subs: Henderson, Pearce, Purrington, Watson, Gilbey, Leko, Washington
