Alex Gilbey will start his first game for the Addicks since September as one of two changes Lee Bowyer has made for tonight’s game against Burton Albion.

Paul Smyth also starts for Charlton with Albie Morgan and Conor Washington moving to the bench. They are joined on the substitutes bench by the returning Deji Oshilaja and Jonny Williams.

It means the Addicks may well start the game in a 4-diamond-2 formation, although they could operate in the 4-3-3 used at times on Saturday.

If the aforementioned, Adam Matthews, Chris Gunter, skipper Darren Pratley and Ian Maatsen would start in defence in front of Ben Amos in goal.

In that formation Ben Watson would hold in midfield with Gilbey and Andrew Shinnie either side of the diamond. Marcus Maddison would start behind a front two of Smyth and Omar Bogle, or in a 4-3-3 Maddison and Smyth would be either side of Bogle.

Oshilaja, Williams, Morgan and Washington are joined on the bench by Ashley Maynard-Brewer, Jason Pearce and Chuks Aneke. 

Charlton: Amos; Matthews, Gunter, Pratley (C), Maatsen; Watson, Gilbey, Shinnie, Maddison; Smyth, Bogle
