Charlton v Hudds'field preview

Charlton could have a new-look team as they begin a new era at home to Huddersfield under Jose Riga.

The Addicks sacked manager Chris Powell on Tuesday morning and appointed former Standard Liege coach Riga as his replacement.

Powell did not name any of the club's January signings - goalkeeper Yohann Thuram-Ulien, defender Loic Nego, midfielders Astrit Ajdarevic and Anil Koc and strikers Reza Ghoochanneijhad and Piotr Parzyszek - in his final starting line-up, Sunday's FA Cup defeat at Sheffield United.

But that could all change under the new regime, although the incoming boss will be unable to call on defenders Leon Cort and Chris Solly due to knee injuries.

Huddersfield striker James Vaughan has targeted a return to action next weekend but misses out at The Valley.

Leading goalscorer Vaughan, who has missed the last four matches due to a calf injury, will not be ready for Wednesday's clash although he hopes to be back in the squad to face Blackburn on Saturday.

Town will be boosted by the return of midfielder Jonathan Hogg, who sat out last weekend's defeat at Doncaster due to a calf strain, but defender Joel Lynch is recovering from groin surgery.

Defender Peter Clarke, plus strikers Martin Paterson and Joe Lolley are among those pushing for recalls.
