Charlton and Brentford meet at The Valley for the first time in January 2012 when Charlton were 2-0 winners.
Johnnie Jackson should start again for Guy Luzon's men after a calf injury along with Callum Harriott and Rhoys Wiggins but The Addicks will still be without Franck Moussa and goalkeeper Stephen Henderson despite the former West Ham man returning to training. Roger Johnson may make his debut for Charlton along with Tony Watt who joined The Addicks in the January transfer window.
Brentford will be without Jake Bidwell who will be starting his 3 match suspension after his straight red against Watford on Tuesday. Brentford may be without James Tarkowski and Alex Pritchard but manager Mark Warburton will be hoping for the duo to be fit. Alan McCormack is fully fit after returning from his injury but Alan Judge and Lewis Macleod are still out for The Bees. Scott Hogan has returned to training this week but is still a long term doubt.
Overall, this will be a match Brentford will be expecting to win but due to the current situation with Mark Warburton; The Bees may find this a tough fixture. Guy Luzon will be looking for his first win as Charlton manager in this match and The Addicks will be hoping to end a terrible run of 15 matches without a win; (The last Charlton win coming against Reading under Bob Peeters at the beginning of November).
Charlton- Dmitrovic, Solly, Ben Haim, Bikey, Wiggins, Gudmundsson, Buyens, Jackson, Cousins, Watt, Vetokele
