Aribo pushing for starting berth when Charlton take on Gillingham

Joe Aribo is pushing to start for Charlton against Gillingham after marking his return from a groin injury with a substitute's appearance in Friday's draw at Coventry.

Boss Karl Robinson must decide whether to risk the midfielder, with Jake Forster-Caskey another option following two games in which he started on the bench.

Defender Lewis Page is out for the season after undergoing an operation on his hamstring.

The 20-year-old joins Harry Lennon and Roger Johnson on the sidelines.

Gillingham have midfielder Bradley Dack available again following his two-match suspension.

Centre-half Zesh Rehman will be assessed after missing Good Friday's win over Bristol Rovers with a hamstring problem.

Chris Herd made his return to the squad following a knee injury, so could be in line for a first appearance since mid-March.

Scott Wagstaff continues his recovery from an Achilles problem along with defender Bradley Garmston (hamstring), while Aaron Morris (knee) is a long-term absentee.
