Charlton still missing key players for Bradford clash

Charlton manager Karl Robinson continues to be without a number of key players for the Sky Bet League One visit of Bradford.

Defenders Chris Solly and Jordan Botaka both have calf injuries, with the latter facing a race against time to be fit.

Jason Pearce came through an hour for the Under-23s on Sunday but Tuesday's game comes too soon for the former Wigan and Portsmouth man.

Josh Magennis missed Saturday's draw against Walsall with a hamstring injury and remains doubtful, while Jake Forster-Caskey is still sidelined with an ankle problem.

Bradford striker Alex Jones is rated "50/50" after being forced out of Saturday's win at Coventry due to a dead leg.

Jones had been a first-half substitute for winger Alex Gilliead, who will play no part at The Valley as he is waiting to learn the full extent of his hamstring injury.

Midfielder Nicky Law remains sidelined due to the knee problem which has ruled him out of the last two matches.

Defender Stephen Darby is hoping to feature after returning to the squad as an unused substitute at the weekend having recovered from an arm injury.
