Preston North End manager Alex Neil will hope to have central half Ben Davies back in the squad, the No.6 having missed the weekend’s win over Blackburn Rovers last weekend.
The Barrow-born defender received an ankle knock in the game against Leeds United the previous week and despite a late fitness test on Saturday, he was not quite fit enough to play in the derby day victory.
Midfielder Josh Harrop, who damaged his hamstring in the clash with Reading in the middle of the month is still a couple of weeks away from a return to full training and he again misses out.
Skipper Tom Clarke is continuing to build up his fitness, a knee injury having ruled him out for a number of weeks and he remains on the sidelines along with Louis Moult, who is out for the season after his ACL reconstruction.
For Lee Bowyer, Sam Field and Jake Forster-Caskey were both added to the Addicks' injury list in the midweek fixtures before last weekend and missed the dramatic late draw with leaders West Brom.
Jonny Williams and Lyle Taylor remain sidelined, with Williams having just had an operation, whereas Taylor is now out of his brace and progressing with his recovery.
Adam Matthews, George Lapslie and Tomer Hemed all missed out as well, but Jonathan Leko will definitely be available again, after he couldn’t play against his parent club, the Baggies, last Saturday.
