Kermorgant poser for Addicks

Charlton boss Chris Powell will make a late decision on Yann Kermorgant ahead of the visit of Leeds.

Striker Kermorgant missed last week's 1-0 win at Birmingham with a recurrence of the ankle injury which had previously sidelined him for a month.

Powell must decide whether to risk the Frenchman or give him until after the international break to ensure he has fully recovered.

Richard Wood (dead leg) will also be assessed while fellow defenders Leon Cort and Chris Solly (both knee) remain on the sidelines, with the latter hoping to return in December.

Leeds will be without first-choice full-backs Sam Byram and Stephen Warnock so Marius Zaliukas is expected to make his full debut.

Right-back Byram has not trained this week due to a thigh problem that ruled him out of last week's win against Yeovil, while left-back Warnock was forced out of the game with an ankle injury.

Former Hearts skipper Zaliukas made his debut off the bench last Saturday and could start, although Danny Pugh and Adam Drury provide manager Brian McDermott with further options. Another alternative, Aidy White, is currently on loan at Sheffield United.

McDermott must decide whether to hand on-loan striker Dexter Blackstock his first start or retain Matt Smith alongside Ross McCormack.
