Charlton V Gillingham at The Valley : Match Preview

31 December 2017
Charlton short on numbers for Gillingham clash

Charlton still have significant injury problems ahead of Monday's League One clash with Gillingham.

Manager Karl Robinson will hope that Jake Forster-Caskey, Patrick Bauer and Leon Best could all return to the squad.

Ricky Holmes could push for a place in the starting line-up after making a substitute appearance in the goalless draw with Wigan but Harry Lennon is a doubt and Chris Solly, Jason Pearce, Tariqe Fosu and Billy Clarke all remain sidelined.

A point against the table toppers was a positive result but extended Charlton's winless run in the league to seven games.

Gillingham will check on captain Lee Martin, who missed Saturday's 2-2 draw against AFC Wimbledon through illness.

Striker Tom Eaves could come back into the side after 20-year-old Greg Cundle was handed a first league start.

Forward Liam Nash was among the substitutes following his recall from a loan spell at Leatherhead.

Midfielder Scott Wagstaff could be back in contention after his recent hamstring injury, but Billy Bingham remains sidelined as the midfielder continues his rehabilitation from a broken ankle.
