The Addicks, who dented Ipswich Town`s Champions League hopes with a 2-1 win on Monday, have Shaun Bartlett away on international duty, while Jonatan Johansson has been hit by a throat infection.
MacDonald is likely to be on the bench for the weekend clash with Sunderland, and Cheltenham boss Steve Cotterill (pictured) fells he will have benefited from his time at Whaddon Road.
Cotterill said: "I thought he did okay in his time here. I spoke to Alan Curbishley (Charlton boss) and thanked him for loaning him to us.
"Now he's returned, he's got to get on with his career at Charlton.
"I said to Alan that I thought he'd benefited from his time here, and he [MacDonald] also felt so."
