Charlton Athletic boss reveals some of the players who will start against Forest Green in League Cup


Sam Field, Jakes Forster-Caskey, Macauley Bonne and Chuks Aneke are all set to feature for Charlton in Tuesday night’s League Cup home tie against Forest Green Rovers.

Addicks boss Lee Bowyer has revealed he will make wholesale changes for the fixture.

Aneke came off the bench to score the second goal in Charlton’s 3-1 Championship win over Stoke City,

Field, signed on loan from West Bromwich Albion on transfer deadline day, did not make the matchday 18.

Brighton loanee Beram Kayal has a slight injury niggle which will keep him unavailable.

Bowyer said: “Sam Field – he will play. And Jake – two lads who need to get minutes into them.

“I spoke to the fitness fella at West Brom and he said Sam hadn’t really played many minutes in pre-season. So he is a little bit behind. I don’t want to chuck him in the deep end because you are always getting judged.

“I want to try and get him some minutes. He’s a quiet lad so I want to break him in, really, with the group. He’ll play, Macauley Bonne and Chuks will play.

“There’s going to be a lot of changes.”
