Charlton v Coventry preview
Last Updated: 05/10/18 11:29am
Charlton have midfielder Krystian Bielik and forward Jamie Ward available for Saturday's League One visit of Coventry.
The pair had been struggling with respective groin and hamstring injuries, with boss Lee Bowyer saying Bielik is expected to start on the bench.
Forward Billy Clarke has also returned to training after a long-term absence with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, but he is not yet ready for selection. Full-back Lewis Page will also miss out, having picked up an unspecified injury in Tuesday's 5-3 defeat at Scunthorpe.
Coventry defender Junior Brown is expected to miss out again due to concussion. The 29-year-old missed the home fixture against Portsmouth, but could return to contention after this weekend.
Conor Chaplin was also absent against his parent club and is back to face Charlton. Fellow striker Max Biamou will not play again the season, having suffered a long-term knee injury.
Charlton have lost just one of their last eight league matches against Coventry (W2 D5), a 1-2 defeat in December 2008 at the Valley.
Coventry have won just one of their last nine trips to the Valley in all competitions (D6 L2), losing their most recent visit 3-0 back in October 2016.
In their last match, Charlton conceded five goals (3-5 v Scunthorpe) in a third tier league match for the first time since losing 5-0 to Grimsby Town in April 1974.
None of Coventry's eight league goals this season have been scored before the 43rd minute.
Charlton have scored more than once in each of their last seven matches in all competitions - prior to this run, they'd scored more than once in just two of their previous 15 games.
