Addicks unchanged for Leeds test

Charlton boss Chris Powell will choose from an unchanged squad for the visit of Leeds.

Defender Leon Cort is set to miss out again with a knee injury and midfielder Danny Hollands has a fractured metatarsal.

Striker Ricardo Fuller popped his shoulder out against Bolton on Easter Saturday but he was fit enough to be on the bench at Brighton on Tuesday night.

Powell must choose to freshen up his side or stick with the team which battled to a goalless draw against the play-off chasing Seagulls.

Matt Taylor returned as a late substitute at the Amex following illness and is challenging Dorian Dervite for his place at centre-half, while Fuller and Danny Haynes are Powell's other options in attack.

Leeds have no new selection problems for the trip as caretaker boss Neil Redfearn takes charge for the first time.

Redfearn was asked to fill in until the club's board find a successor for Neil Warnock, who left the club after the 2-1 defeat to Derby.

The academy coach has said he will not give young players a chance until Championship survival is assured, with United currently five points above the bottom three with six games left.

One player he will be without is Tom Lees, who serves the second of a three-game ban after being sent off against Ipswich.

Redfearn could recall Ross McCormack to the starting XI after he came off the bench to score the last goal of the Warnock reign on Easter Monday.

Teenage striker Dominic Poleon is available for selection after Redfearn recalled him early from a loan spell at Sheffield United.
