Ben Watson will make his full Charlton debut tonight in the EFL Trophy against Brighton U21s.
The midfielder will captain the Addicks and will be joined in the starting lineup by debutants Jay Mingi and Luca Vega.
The lineup is predominantly made up of academy graduates with Jonny Williams, Jake Forster-Caskey and Watson the only three not to have come through the club’s esteemed academy.
Ashley Maynard-Brewer will start in goal and a Charlton back four could be made up of George Lapslie, Charlie Barker, Mingi and Vega.
If Lee Bowyer uses that back four Albie Morgan, Watson, James Vennings and Forster-Caskey could make up the midfield with Williams behind Josh Davison. If he opts for a 4-3-3, Williams and Morgan may operate either side of Davison.
The Charlton bench includes Nathan Harness, Junior Quitirna, Hady Ghandour, Lucas Ness and Aaron Henry.
Charlton: Maynard-Brewer; Lapslie, Barker, Mingi, Vega; Morgan, Watson (C), Vennings, Forster-Caskey; Williams; Davison
