Charlton v Hull preview

The Addicks have doubts over the fitness of Chris Solly and Tony Watt ahead of their home clash with the Tigers.
Right-back Solly was caught by late challenge on his ankle in the closing stages of Tuesday night’s goalless draw at Nottingham Forest, while striker Watt is carrying a calf injury.
Reza Ghoochannejhad faces a month on the sidelines after suffering a knee injury and fellow forward Igor Vetokele is not yet ready to return following a muscle problem.
Goalkeeper Stephen Henderson will miss out again with a shoulder injury but he should be back after the international break.
Hull boss Steve Bruce must decide whether to recall Nikica Jelavic to his starting line-up amid speculation the striker is a transfer target for Norwich.
Abel Hernandez is hoping to retain his place after being recalled up front alongside Chuba Akpom for the 2-1 midweek win against Fulham following suspension. Jelavic replaced Akpom midway through the second half.
Winger Sone Aluko marked his first league start of the season with the winning goal on Tuesday night and should continue.
Bruce has no major new injury or suspension worries, while on-loan Arsenal defender Isaac Hayden and fellow summer signing Sam Clucas are both pushing for recalls.
