Leaders Charlton have no new injury worries.

But manager of the month Chris Powell must decide whether fatigue played a part after his side slipped to their first home defeat of the season against Colchester on Tuesday night.

Goalkeeper Ben Hamer shook off an ankle knock to play in midweek and should keep his place despite his mistake gifting Colchester their second goal.

The back four should also be unchanged but Powell will consider changes further up the pitch.

Fit-again Danny Haynes (hamstring) came off the bench against Colchester and could inject some fresh legs into the attack while the likes of Bradley Pritchard, Darel Russell, Scott Wagstaff and Leon Clarke will also push to be involved.

Defender Alan Sheehan and midfielder Alan Judge could return to the Notts County squad.

Sheehan and Judge were rested against Tranmere at Prenton Park on Tuesday night.

Manager Keith Curle has hinted at the possibility of a new signing ahead of the trip to the capital.

Veteran striker Lee Hughes will serve the final game of his three-match suspension.

County face the top three teams in the division in their next three matches, with the two Sheffield sides next on the agenda after Charlton, and Curle said: "The players have an opportunity to play in big games, in front of big crowds with big atmospheres. Fantastic.

"There is going to be a lot of attention on those games and I know that as a professional footballer they are the ones you want to play in."
