Dailly: Suspension blow for Addicks

Dailly: Suspension blow for Addicks

Charlton will be without captain Christian Dailly.

The veteran defender was shown a third red card of the season against Oldham last weekend, ruling him out of the final five matches through suspension.

Jonathan Fortune impressed as a substitute as the 10 men held out for a goalless draw at Boundary Park and could be handed a start.

First-choice goalkeeper Rob Elliot (knee) and back-up Ross Worner (broken finger) are still out so Millwall loanee John Sullivan keeps his place.

Midfielder Dean Parrett could return after a tight hamstring ruled him out last weekend but striker Joe Anyinsah is struggling to shake off an ankle knock, while winger Johnnie Jackson is still out with an Achilles injury.

Huddersfield manager Lee Clark expects Joey Gudjonsson to shake off a hamstring strain in time.

The Iceland international was forced out of last Saturday's home draw with Peterborough after stepping off the bench as a half-time replacement for on-loan Bolton striker Danny Ward.

Defender Liam Ridehalgh missed out against Posh with the foot injury he sustained in the previous win at Tranmere, but Gary Naysmith completed a successful return to action to boost Clark's back four last weekend following a knee injury.

Goalkeeper Alex Smithies remains sidelined with a knee injury, so veteran Ian Bennett will continue.

Winger Anthony Pilkington (ankle/leg) and midfielder Damien Johnson (knee ligaments) remain long-term absentees.

The Terriers are level on points with second-placed Southampton, who have a game in hand, with five matches remaining.
