Jordan Cousins (hamstring), Chris Solly (ankle) and Patrick Bauer (groin) could all return for embattled Charlton.

Reza Ghoochannejhad has been ruled out after tweaking a hamstring on international duty with Iran.

Birmingham give a late test to new loan signing Kyle Lafferty, who suffered a groin injury while on international duty with Northern Ireland.

Clayton Donaldson and Jacques Maghoma also face tests after international duty but Diego Fabbrini (toe) is fit.
