The Addicks have shown reputation counts for nothing this season and their stunning 4-2 thrashing of Chelsea on Boxing Day sent them into fifth place.
Their current buoyancy is in stark contrast to the plight of Spurs, who are still suffering from delusions of grandeur despite failing to make any sort of impact in the past decade.
Alan Curbishley's men have never lost at White Hart Lane in The Premiership and have only been beaten in two of their last 12 fixtures.
Curbishley is unlikely to ring the changes for the trip to North London as he has no fresh injury worries to contend with.
Paul Konchesky, who has just returned to the club after a loan spell at Spurs, is likely to stay on the bench along with Chris Powell and Mark Fish.
Shaun Bartlett, Luke Young, Richard Rufus, Gary Rowett and Kevin Lisbie all remain absentees for The Addicks.
Spurs entertain Charlton on the back of three straight defeats and they have won just twice in their last nine Premiership outings.
Bobby Zamora returned from an Achilles injury as a substitute against Portsmouth but is unlikely to be thrust back into the starting line-up.
Midfielders Jamie Redknapp and Simon Davies are still sidelined although youngster Johnnie Jackson may retain his place after a steady debut against Portsmouth.
