Carl Fletcher will be fit to skipper Plymouth when they host Charlton.

The midfielder received a kick during the second half of Argyle's Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory over Cheltenham on Tuesday and had to be replaced by Chris Clark.

But Fletcher has been passed fit and will lead his side against the Addicks.

Defender Jim Paterson is still struggling with a hamstring injury and is likely to miss out again, while Onismor Bhasera, Rory Fallon and Rory Patterson are away on international duty with Zimbabwe, New Zealand and Northern Ireland respectively.

Striker Steve MacLean started in the victory against Cheltenham and after getting himself on the scoresheet for the first time this season, he could be in contention for another start as Plymouth chase their second home league win of the campaign.M

Charlton will check on Lee Martin ahead of the trip.

The on-loan Ipswich midfielder suffered a dead leg against MK Dons on Tuesday night and needs a late fitness test.

Defender Gary Doherty was substituted in midweek due to a bout of flu but should be fine while Joe Anyinsah, Alan McCormack and Matt Fry could also be involved.

Striker Anyinsah has been struggling with a back injury, midfielder McCormack has been sidelined for three weeks with a calf problem and defender Fry missed out on Tuesday due to a groin niggle.

Forward Akpo Sodje may sit out again with a knee injury while full-backs Chris Solly (ankle) and Kelly Youga (knee) are still unavailable.
