Johnnie Jackson and Chris Solly should return to the Charlton starting line-up.

Skipper Jackson has missed the last two matches with a calf problem but has resumed training and is expected to take his place on the left wing.

Solly returns at right-back after an illness caused his late withdrawal from the side which drew 1-1 with Rochdale on Tuesday night.

Rhoys Wiggins, who filled in at right-back, will revert to his usual spot at left-back with Cedric Evina set to drop out.

Striker Danny Haynes is expected to miss out again with a hamstring problem.

The Addicks are now seven points clear of Sheffield United at the top of League One after back-to-back draws.

Stevenage boss Gary Smith may opt for changes for the trip.

Jeff Hughes' last minute goal condemned Smith to a first defeat in charge of the Hertfordshire side as they went down 1-0 at Notts County and the Boro boss will be looking for his side to bounce back at The Valley.

Chuks Aneke, who has yet to feature under Smith and has not played since his red card against Leyton Orient at the start of January, is pushing for a recall, as are defender Phil Edwards, midfielder Stacy Long and striker Don Cowan.

Darius Charles was replaced early in the second half at Meadow Lane and will be hoping to continue up front alongside top scorer Chris Beardsley.
