TEAM NEWS | Field and Bonne to make Charlton debuts against Forest Green Rovers

Lee Bowyer has handed Charlton debuts to summer signings Sam Field and Macauley Bonne for tonight’s home game against Forest Green Rovers in the Carabao Cup.

Deji Oshiliaja and Chuks Aneke will make their first starts for the club while Ben Amos is in the line-up for the first time since re-joining Charlton this summer.

Bowyer has opted for 11 changes from the line-up that beat Stoke City 3-1 in the Championship on Saturday.

The new boys will be joined in the starting XI by academy graduates Albie Morgan, George Lapslie, Brendan Wiredu and Alfie Doughty and veterans Jake Forster-Caskey and Naby Sarr.

The Addicks have a variety of formation options they may use but the 4-4-2 diamond, that Bowyer employed with great success in the second half of Saturday’s win, looks most likely.

If that is the case Wiredu, Oshilaja, Sarr and Doughty could make up the back four in front of Amos. The midfield diamond is likely to include Forster-Caskey, Morgan, Lapslie and Field behind a front two of Aneke and Bonne.

Dillon Phillips, Ben Dempsey, Wilberforce Ocran, Junior Quitirna and Toby Stevenson make up the substitutes bench.
