All the first team news from Charlton Athletic ahead of Saturday’s Lincoln clash
Charlton Athletic have won three on the rebound without conceding and will be aiming for a first half final when they host Lincoln City in The Valley on Saturday.
The Addicks were just seven points clear of the relegation zone at one point, but nine points from their last nine will see them heading into the Imps test full of confidence.
2020/21 League One play-off runners-up Lincoln have had a disappointing season but have shown their class in patches and if they activate it Charlton could have their work cut out for them.
The Imps are 18th, nine points clear of the bottom four with seven games remaining and were victorious, 2-1, in the reverse game thanks to a late goal from Regan Poole.
Here we’ve taken a look at all the early news from the Addicks squad…
Akin Famewo returned from illness as a late substitute in Addicks’ 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers last time out.
Johnnie Jackson has named an unchanged side three times in a row and will likely do so again if possible this weekend, with Ben Purrington filling Famewo’s usual left center back role.
Corey Blackett-Taylor has had his ups and downs with injuries in his career but is vital to the way Charlton has played in recent weeks, it will be interesting to see how the 24-year-old recovers and handles the physical demands of regular departures. by the end of the season.
Jake Forster-Caskey played 90 minutes in the U23’s 3-0 win over Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday and is expected to play before the end of the season.
The same has been said regarding Chuks Aneke, but the former Arsenal man has yet to see any U23 action.
Ryan Inniss is apparently out of action for the rest of the season and Nile John could enter the fold at some point, having not received a single senior minute since his loan spell at Charlton from Tottenham Hotspur in January.
