Trio doubtful for Addicks

Charlton will check on Astrit Ajdarevic, Reza Ghoochanneijhad and Callum Harriott ahead of the home clash with Burnley.

Midfielder Ajdarevic and striker Ghoochanneijhad were left out of the 1-0 midweek win over Bournemouth to rest minor knocks while winger Harriott came off during the first half with a slight ankle problem.

Tottenham loanee Jonathan Obika replaced Harriott for his first appearance since rejoining the Addicks and his lively display could earn him a start up front.

Leon Cort is closing in on a return after a long-term knee injury but is unlikely to be risked just yet while fellow defender Chris Solly remains sidelined with his knee problem.

Burnley will be without Danny Ings and possibly Kieran Trippier too for the trip.

England Under-21 international Ings, the Clarets' top scorer with 25 goals, faces a few weeks on the sidelines after sustaining an ankle ligament injury in the recent 3-3 draw with Birmingham.

Full-back Trippier, meanwhile, is struggling with a hamstring strain and will be given as late as possible. His right-back berth could be filled by Chris Baird who agreed a short-term deal with Sean Dyche's side on Thursday.

David Edgar will also come into consideration should Trippier miss out but youngster Luke O'Neill can not fill the void after recently returning from a loan spell with Southend having suffered a thigh strain.
