Forster: Former Addicks player

Forster: Former Addicks player

Veteran striker Nicky Forster hopes to line up against one of his old clubs when Brentford host Charlton.

Forster, who spent the second half of last season on loan at The Valley, needs a groin operation but has been asked to delay going under the knife with the Bees struggling at the foot of the table.

Charlie MacDonald, another former Addicks frontman, is sidelined with an ankle injury so Forster is in line to start alongside either Gary Alexander or Carl Cort.

Manager Andy Scott could also be without midfielder Toumani Diagouraga, who is struggling with flu.

Huddersfield loanee Robbie Simpson misses out again with a hamstring injury and midfielder David Hunt remains on the sidelines with damaged ankle ligaments.

Christian Dailly and Rob Elliot are back for Charlton's trip to Brentford.

Skipper Dailly resumed training on Monday after missing five matches with a fractured eye socket and could go straight in at centre-half.

Goalkeeper Elliot is also fit again after injuring his elbow in training a fortnight ago and will hope to oust his replacement Ross Worner.

Striker Joe Anyinsah is doubtful after suffering a recurrence of a back injury during the warm-up ahead of Tuesday night's win over MK Dons.

Paul Benson, who opened his Charlton goalscoring account against the Dons, continues in attack.

Midfielder Alan McCormack will be out for another 10 days with a calf problem and full-backs Chris Solly (ankle) and Kelly Youga (knee) are still missing.
