Sodje`s law as Dickson misses Valley return

Sam Sodje is out of Charlton's home clash with Bristol Rovers.

The defender serves a one-match ban after his red card during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Yeovil, so Miguel Llera will step in at centre-half.

Right-back Frazer Richardson is still missing with a hamstring injury so Kelly Youga will swap flanks again with Grant Basey filling in on the left.

Wolves loanee Carl Ikeme continues in goal as Rob Elliot remains sidelined with a groin injury.

Striker Izale McLeod returns from a three-match ban but could find his way back into the side blocked by Akpo Sodje - Sam's younger brother - who is in line for his first start after scoring Charlton's equaliser as a substitute at the weekend.

Rovers will be without on-loan striker Chris Dickson who is ineligible to feature against his parent club.

Manager Paul Trollope is therefore likely to plump for either Daryl Duffy or midfielder Andy Williams as his replacement as Rovers chase their third successive victory.

The Pirates will be able to welcome back Carl Regan who missed the 2-1 win against Gillingham at the weekend through suspension.

However, Aaron Lescott is still unavailable as he is still suffering with a groin injury. The defender will not be out for much longer but will definitely miss the clash with the high-flying Addicks.
