Dale Stephens and Leon Cort will be missing for Charlton.

Midfielder Stephens has undergone surgery to clear up a persistent ankle injury and faces a few weeks on the sidelines, while defender Cort is on international duty with Guyana.

Bradley Pritchard is back in training after a foot injury but the midfielder is not ready to return to the first team.

Defender Matt Taylor returns to The Shay having had a short spell with the original Halifax Town in 2005.

Paul Hayes, Scott Wagstaff, Paul Benson, Mikel Alonso and Gary Doherty could figure if boss Chris Powell opts to make changes from the side currently setting the pace in League One.
