Burton decides to play on for Addicks
The striker has been struggling with a hernia problem which will eventually require surgery, but playing does not make the condition any worse. Midfielder Jose Semedo is fit after the pelvic injury which has kept him out for five games and should be involved, while defender Sam Sodje is back from international duty with Nigeria. Winger Lloyd Sam (groin) and full-back Frazer Richardson (hamstring) shrugged off knocks to play against Oldham last weekend and came through unscathed so midfielder Dean Sinclair (knee) is the only definite absentee. Former Coventry forward Leon McKenzie impressed on his debut from the bench last week following a groin injury, but he will be among the subs again.
