From likely line-ups to key men and the referee, all you need to know can be found below.

Key battle

No Championship player has had more goal involvements in 2020 than Adam Armstrong. Jason Pearce scored when the sides last met at The Valley and will skipper the Addicks from central defence.

Last meeting

Lyle Taylor came up with a late winner as Charlton began life back in the Championship with a 2-1 win at Ewood Park. Ben Purrington had the visitors ahead at the break, before an own goal drew Rovers level. Rovers lost 1-0 on their last visit in April 2018.


Andy Davies: Has shown 85 yellow cards and three red in 24 games this season. His last Rovers game was the 5-2 defeat at Brentford in February 2019.

Likely line-ups

Charlton: Dillon Phillips, Tom Lockyer, Jason Pearce, Naby Sarr, Adam Matthews, Ben Purrington, Josh Cullen, David Davis, Alfie Doughty, Lyle Taylor, Tomer Hemed

Rovers: Christian Walton, Ryan Nyambe, Darragh Lenihan, Tosin Adarabioyo, Amari’i Bell, Elliott Bennett, Lewis Travis, Bradley Johnson, Stewart Downing, Ben Brereton, Adam Armstrong


Charlton are 19/10 to give their hopes of avoiding the drop a shot in the arm and complete a league double over Rovers who are priced at 7/5. The draw is 21/10, with Darragh Lenihan 11/1 to score anytime.
