Charlton manager Chris Powell could make changes to his starting line-up for the home clash with Tranmere.

The Addicks have suffered four straight league defeats, and Powell may decide to shake things up in a bid to get back to winning ways.

Experienced defender Gary Doherty limped out of the 3-1 midweek defeat against Carlisle with a hamstring problem and is a major doubt, so Jonathan Fortune or Miguel Llera will fill the void at centre-half.

On-loan West Ham left-back Matt Fry is hoping to recover from a knee injury in time to replace Carl Jenkinson, while Johnnie Jackson is hoping to recover from an Achilles problem to take his place in midfield.

Scott Wagstaff and on-loan striker Nathan Eccleston are also pushing for starting berths, while Paul Benson is pushing for a recall alongside Bradley Wright-Phillips in attack.

Striker Joe Anyinsah looks set to miss his second game in a week with an ankle problem.

Tranmere boss Les Parry is boosted by the return of midfielder Joss Labadie for the trip to south-east London.

Labadie is available again after a two-match suspension and highly-rated youngster Dale Jennings may also come back into contention.

The rookie striker has been sidelined with a groin injury but stepped up his training this week and will hope to play some part against the Addicks.

However, Alan Mahon, Ryan Fraughan and Marlon Broomes could all remain sidelined through injury.

Parry, meanwhile, has said he will weigh up whether to recall Labadie to his starting line-up after Rovers performed impressively during Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Exeter.

"The lads did so well on Tuesday and it's a nice problem to have," said Parry.
