Charlton Athletic are missing 14 players for today’s Championship home game against Sheffield Wednesday – with Ben Purrington a late withdrawal.
Former Bolton Wanderers and Walsall playmaker Erhun Oztumer had been a doubt with a bruised foot but is fit to start.
Oztumer is about the only bit of good news in terms of team selection as a raft of first-teamers remain unavailable to Addicks manager Lee Bowyer.
Lyle Taylor, Jonny Williams, Jake Forster-Caskey, Chuks Aneke, Lewis Page, Ben Amos, Beram Kayal, Josh Cullen, Tomer Hemed, Sam Field, George Lapslie and Ashley Maynard-Brewer are all injured.
Conor Gallagher – who has scored six goals since arriving on loan from Chelsea – is suspended after collecting five bookings.
Adam Matthews starts at right-back with Chris Solly dropping to the bench. Oztumer and Deji Oshilaja come in for Gallagher and Jason Pearce.
Charlton: Phillips, Matthews, Sarr, Lockyer, Doughty, Oshilaja, Pratley, Morgan, Oztumer, Bonne, Leko. Subs: Harvey, Pearce, Davison, Vennings, Solly.
Sheffield Wednesday: Dawson, Fox, Harris, Fletcher, Bannan, Lees, Nuhiu, Odubajo, Hutchinson, Iorfa, Forestieri. Subs: Jones, Lee, Pelupessy, Winnall, Murphy, Reach, Luongo.
