Charlton Athletic squad news and predict XI will face Ipswich Town

Charlton Athletic hosts Ipswich Town in The Valley this Tuesday night in League One.

Charlton is currently ranked 15th in Ligue 1 and interim manager Johnnie Jackson is hoping his side can find the consistency they so badly need before their hopes of completing the play-offs dwindle.

Team news

Jake Forster-Caskey remains out with a cruciate ligament injury until January, but club captain Jason Pearce is expected to be available for selection.

Chris Gunter, Pape Souare and Jayden Stockley are all one warning of a suspension.

The opposition

Ipswich Town today confirmed the appointment of John McGreal as interim boss for this game. Paul Cook’s sacking came as a shock to most fans and a selection of Ipswich players who took to social media after the sacking.

Ipswich are seven points from the play-offs and, most importantly, they could close that gap tomorrow and be close at hand. Those fine margins could be what will entice a new manager to come in and take charge.

Ipswich suffered a disappointing draw against Barrow this weekend in the FA Cup, which ended up being the last nail in the coffin of ex-Wigan Cook’s manager. They’ll have to be a lot better to get anything from Charlton.


Both groups of supporters will be supporting each other in this one and it could really tip both ways.

However, after a poor performance this weekend and the uncertainty of the arrival of a new manager, we could potentially see this one go in favor of the host.

Score prediction: Charlton Athletic 2-1 Ipswich Town
