Charlton Athletic v Shrewsbury Town team news: One change for Addicks who still can’t name full bench

Naby Sarr is set for his first Charlton start under Lee Bowyer as the defender comes in to face Shrewsbury Town this afternoon – with the Addicks still unable to name a full complement of substitutes.

The 24-year-old centre-half replaces the absent Jason Pearce, who suffered a knee injury late on during last week’s defeat at Sunderland. The Addicks captain is expected to be side-lined for two to three weeks.

Bowyer is still unable to name a full bench having only named five substitutes last weekend. That number has risen to six today, with Anfernee Dijksteel returning from illness and Albie Morgan making his first appearance in a competitive first-team squad.

Goalkeeper Jed Steer, signed on a season-long loan from Aston Villa yesterday, does not feature.

Darren Pratley, Lyle Taylor and George Lapslie all make their full home league debuts.

Charlton: Phillips, Bauer, Sarr, Solly, Page , Marshall, Pratley, Lapslie, Aribo, Taylor, Grant. Subs: Maynard-Brewer, Morgan, Maloney, Ajose, Hackett-Fairchild, Dijksteel.
