Hartlepool will once again be without injured trio Nolberto Solano, Antony Sweeney and Colin Larkin.

Winger Solano has missed the last three games due to a hamstring strain, midfielder Sweeney has been forced to sit out the last two matches with a groin problem and striker Larkin has been restricted to only three appearances this season due to a knee injury.

Manager Mick Wadsworth has no new injury or suspension problems but hinted at changes following a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Tranmere in midweek.

Strikers James Brown and Adam Boyd will both be hoping to feature more prominently after stepping off the bench for the last half an hour against Tranmere and fellow forward, Colin Nish, could be recalled to the starting line-up.

Wadsworth's side have lost their last three league games at Victoria Park.

Charlton boss Chris Powell could name an unchanged side when he takes the leaders to Victoria Park.

Powell has named the same starting XI for the last two matches, a 4-0 win over Carlisle followed by Tuesday night's 2-1 victory at Wycombe.

Midfielder Dale Stephens could be added to the squad having missed both wins after his partner gave birth last weekend, but Andy Hughes looks set to keep his place in the centre.

Bradley Wright-Phillips and Yann Kermorgant, who have scored 14 goals between them this term, will continue in attack with Paul Hayes and Jason Euell on the bench.

Midfielder Bradley Pritchard remains the Addicks' only injury absentee as he continues to recover from a broken metatarsal.
