TEAM NEWS | Clare and Leko start at Accrington

Sean Clare and Jonathan Leko both start this afternoon's Sky Bet League One encounter against Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium (3pm) as Johnnie Jackson makes two changes.

The duo come in for Diallang Jaiyesimi and Mason Burstow, who are named among the Addicks' substitutes bench alongside Conor Washington as the Northern Ireland returns to Charlton's matchday 18 for the first time in over a month following a hamstring injury.

The returning Clare and Ben Purrington are expected to occupy wing-back roles with Scott Fraser, George Dobson and Elliot Lee once again lining up in midfield, as Leko joins Jayden Stockley up front.

Jaiyesimi, Burstow and Washington are joined on the bench by Nathan Harvey, Adam Matthews, Albie Morgan and Alex Gilbey.
