Wiggins out for Addicks

Rhoys Wiggins is Charlton's only injury absentee for the visit of Blackburn.


The defender suffered a fractured metatarsal against Barnsley last week which brought a premature end to his season so youngster Morgan Fox continues at left-back.


Right-back Chris Solly was recalled for Monday's dramatic 3-2 win at Sheffield Wednesday but he could be rested again having only just returned from a long-term knee injury, with Lawrie Wilson standing by.


Marvin Sordell should keep his place in attack after his first career hat-trick helped Charlton come from 2-0 down to secure three vital points at Hillsborough.


Blackburn could be given a triple boost on the injury front as they look to keep alive their play-off hopes.


On-loan defender Michael Keane (knee) and midfield duo Lee Williamson (neck) and Tom Cairney (groin) were all back in training on Thursday to give boss Gary Bowyer hope prior to their trip to The Valley.


However, David Dunn (calf) and fellow midfielder Dickson Etuhu (hamstring) are still not ready to return while full-back Adam Henley (ankle) will not be back until next season.


Winger Ben Marshall (ankle) and full-back Tommy Spurr (groin) are both doubtful for the fixture while midfielder Jason Lowe (ankle) had to play through the pain barrier in the 4-2 win over Birmingham on Monday.
