Charlton v Bolton preview

Charlton will be without Rhoys Wiggins and Marvin Sordell for Friday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Bolton Wanderers at The Valley.

Defender Wiggins suffered a fractured metatarsal during the closing stages of Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat by Barnsley and will be ruled out for the rest of the season, while striker Sordell is ineligible as he is on loan from Wanderers.

Youngster Morgan Fox could step in at left-back for Wiggins while Reza Ghoochanneijhad is set to replace Sordell in attack.

Michael Morrison, Astrit Ajdarevic and Lawrie Wilson - who will be wearing a protective mask after fracturing an eye socket - are also pushing for recalls.

Mark Davies will be held back by Bolton boss Dougie Freedman again.

The central midfielder has a groin problem and has missed Wanderers' last four games. After only returning to the squad in December following a long-term knee problem, Freedman feels fatigue is beginning to catch up with the 26-year-old.

Joe Mason is also unavailable after returning to Cardiff at the culmination of his loan spell. He was an unused substitute in the 1-0 victory over Barnsley, though, with Jermaine Beckford likely to lead the line again after scoring the winner.

Neither Joe Riley (knee) or fellow full-back Marc Tierney (broken leg) will return before the season ends while midfielder Stuart Holden (knee) may not play again in this calendar year.
