Frazer Richardson and Kelly Youga are set to miss out again when Charlton entertain south London neighbours Millwall.
Right-back Richardson is still struggling with the hamstring injury which has sidelined him recently and left-back Youga has a knee problem.
Elliot Omozusi and Grant Basey are therefore set to occupy the full-back spots as the Addicks look for a fifth straight league win.
Boss Phil Parkinson could name an unchanged starting XI, although striker Izale McLeod, who had a short spell on loan with the Lions last season, may return to the bench after a knee injury.
Youngster Scott Wagstaff will keep his place on the left wing after a string of fine displays since breaking into the first team, not least when scoring the winner at Stockport last weekend.
Millwall duo Paul Robinson and Marc Laird are expected to be fit for the trip.
Centre-half Robinson and midfielder Laird suffered facial injuries during last weekend's win over Walsall but they should be available at The Valley.
Defender Tony Craig could also return to the squad having resumed training this week after almost a month out with a fractured cheekbone.
Wingers James Henry (hamstring) and Chris Hackett (knee) will be handed late fitness checks after missing out against Walsall.
Long-term absentees Zak Whitbread (hip) and Scott Barron (ankle) are back in training but will probably need some reserve games under their belts.
Strikers Neil Harris (back) and Gary Alexander (heel) are still missing.
