Darel Russell is the only absentee for Charlton ahead of the visit of Bury.

On-loan Preston midfielder Russell is in the middle of a three-game ban for his sending-off shortly after coming on as a substitute against Sheffield United last weekend.

Boss Chris Powell has named the same starting XI for the last three games and been rewarded with three 1-0 victories to move the Addicks nine points clear at the top.

Powell could have a selection dilemma in midfield, though, with Dale Stephens returning as a substitute at Exeter on Saturday after recovering from ankle surgery.

Striker Danny Haynes is still waiting for his full debut after joining from Barnsley earlier this month but Bradley Wright-Phillips and Yann Kermorgant are set to continue in attack.

Meanwhile, Bury boss Richie Barker is expected to make changes ahead of the trip to Charlton.

Barker has a full squad to choose from without injury or suspension worries, but the Shakers chief was left fuming after Saturday's 3-0 derby reverse against struggling Rochdale at Spotland.

"With all due respect to Rochdale, before the game kicked off the league table said they were bottom of the table," he told Bury's official website.

"We have to play Charlton on Tuesday night and, with all due respect, we were not at Charlton on Saturday."

On-loan Southampton forward Ryan Doble is pressing for a return to the starting line-up after David Amoo was preferred against Dale.

Mark Carrington could find his way back into the midfield having been overlooked in favour of Giles Coke in recent weeks, while Mark Hughes may be called upon to provide defensive reinforcement.
