Charlton V Blackburn - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.

Kermorgant blow for Addicks Charlton will be without striker Yann Kermorgant for the visit of Blackburn. Kermorgant was this week ruled out for three months after scans revealed he suffered a fractured ankle in training last Thursday. Ricardo Fuller started his first game for the Addicks in Kermorgant's place as Chris Powell's side won at Ipswich last weekend. Danny Haynes provides Powell with another option in attack having recovered from a hamstring injury. Winger Scott Wagstaff is also fit following his recent lay-off but defenders Matt Taylor and Rhoys Wiggins are still sidelined with foot injuries. Powell is unlikely to make too many changes after last weekend's win ended a run of three straight defeats. Blackburn boss Steve Kean may opt to shuffle his pack. Rovers suffered their first league defeat of the season last Friday 2-1 at home to Middlesbrough. And Kean will be eager to return to winning ways as speculation about his future at the club continues to grow. Midfield duo Mauro Formica and Morten Gamst Pedersen were both left out against Boro but could be recalled to the starting line-up. Defender Grant Hanley scored a late consolation from the bench last time out and could be handed a starting role after an impressive cameo. Markus Olsson is remains Kean's only injury concern. The defender is still sidelined with a hamstring injury meaning brother Martin is expected to continue at left-back.
