Charlton striker Akpo Sodje will miss the festive fixtures through injury.
Sodje suffered a shoulder injury during the 1-0 defeat by Walsall last Sunday, and following a scan he has been ruled out for three weeks.
However, manager Phil Parkinson is confident he has the strength in depth to get through the hectic schedule. especially after resting some key players in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.
"We've got players coming back into the equation this weekend who we gave a break on Tuesday," he said.
