Charlton pair face checks
Charlton have injury worries at both ends of the pitch ahead of the home game against Walsall.
Goalkeeper Rob Elliot picked up a hip injury during Thursday night's FA Cup replay win over Luton, and striker Paul Benson had to be replaced in the second half with a knee knock.
Elliot could probably be patched up to face the Saddlers but Benson has been for a scan to determine the extent of his problem and is a doubt.
Loanees Lee Martin and Marcel Seip were ineligible in midweek and will be in the squad, the latter having yet to make his debut since joining from Plymouth some three weeks ago.
Skipper Christian Dailly serves the final match of his four-game ban.
Walsall will assess the fitness of forwards Jon Macken and Reuben Reid.
The pair picked up respective calf and hamstring injuries during the 3-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday last month and it remains to be seen whether they will have recovered in time for the trip to The Valley.
But with the bottom-of-the-table Saddlers having won just two of their last 15 league games, under-pressure boss Chris Hutchings will be hoping to have the key pair available.
Even more so following the returns of attacking duo Martin Devaney and Liam Dickinson to parent club Barnsley following the completion of their loan stints at the Banks`s Stadium.
Striker and captain Darren Byfield remains sidelined with his long-term knee injury, with a return set for early in the new year.
Saddlers stun Addicks
Walsall stunned promotion-chasing Charlton with a shock 1-0 victory at The Valley.
It was Walsall who had the better of the first half and the struggling visitors defied their lowly position at the bottom of the table by creating what few opportunities arose in the opening 45 minutes.
Alex Nicholls saw an effort go over the bar, Julian Gray broke into the box before shooting off target and Richard Taundry shot into the side-netting.
Walsall should have taken the lead in the 58th minute when Will Grigg headed over from six yards after connecting with Gray's cross.
But they finally made the breakthrough 11 minutes later with a stunning low drive from 20 yards from Matt Richards, which flew past Rob Elliot and into the net.
Nicholls almost added a second for the visitors with a 25-yard volley that went just wide of the post five minutes later and he should have wrapped it up in the 89th minute after breaking clean through, only to be denied by Elliot.
