Captain Jonathan Douglas will continue to miss out as Swindon come up against Charlton for the first time since beating them in last season's play-off semi-finals.

Douglas has missed Town's last two games due to the toe injury he sustained in the 5-4 defeat at Peterborough and will again play no part at the County Ground on Tuesday.

Vincent Pericard (groin) made his return as a 64th-minute substitute in Saturday's dramatic 3-3 draw at Yeovil and is again in contention to face the Addicks.

But midfielder Simon Ferry was withdrawn with an ankle injury at Huish Park and looks set to miss out, with Jon-Paul McGovern favourite to step in.

Full-back Alan Sheehan serves the second game of his three-match suspension and will miss out as Swindon look to repeat the 2-1 success recorded in the first leg of May's play-off semi.

Town eventually progressed to the Wembley final on penalties after a 2-1 defeat at The Valley in the return fixture.

Lee Martin is out of Charlton's trip to Swindon through suspension.

The on-loan Ipswich midfielder serves a one-match ban after collecting a fifth booking of the season having come on as a substitute against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Fit-again full-back Chris Solly (ankle) could be added to the bench in Martin's absence with boss Phil Parkinson likely to name an unchanged starting line-up following their 1-0 weekend win.

Winger Kyel Reid remains on the sidelines with an ankle injury and left-back Kelly Youga is a long-term absentee with a knee problem.

The Addicks have moved up to sixth in the table on the back of two successive victories.

Mail Box

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

Erm... Balotelli To QPR..?

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
