Charlton Athletic boss Lee Bowyer has made 11 changes for tonight’s League Cup tie against Forest Green Rovers.

The Addicks manager had said at the weekend that he would be resting players after an impressive start to their Championship campaign – banking maximum points.

It means there is a debut for Deji Oshilaja, signed after he was released by AFC Wimbledon, and Sam Field, snapped up on loan from West Bromwich Albion.

There are also first competitive starts in an Addicks shirt for Macauley Bonne and academy products Alfie Doughty. Brendan Wiredu’s only other start came in the EFL Trophy last season.

Charlton have only named five substitutes.

Charlton: Amos, Wiredu, Oshilaja, Sarr, Doughty, Lapslie, Forster-Caskey, Morgan, Field, Aneke, Bonne. Subs: Phillips, Dempsey, Ocran, Quitirna, Stevenson.

Forest Green Rovers: Wollacott, Bernard, Stevens, Allen, Adams, Morton, McGinley, Kitching, Godwin-Malife, Mills, Mondal. Subs: Smith, Winchester, Grubb, Collins, Dawson, McCoulsky, Covil.
