Charlton Athletic host Sheffield Wednesday in League One this afternoon.

Charlton Athletic come into this weekend’s clash with Sheffield Wednesday looking to bounce back from their loss to Derby County last time out. The Addicks have made big strides forward with Dean Holden, moving up to 11th, but have alternated losing and winning in their last five games.

Visiting Sheffield Wednesday won’t make it easy for them either, as they look to find some consistency. The Owls are top of the League One table and unbeaten in 19 games, putting them in a strong position in the race to return to the Championship.

Charlton could move up to tenth with a win, while on Wednesday they could be three points clear of Plymouth on top.

As reported on the official Addicks website, Miles Leaburn is again a possible returnee. He has been sidelined with a hip injury, but Holden has said the young striker could return from injury against the Owls.

Elsewhere, however, there are questions about ‘one or two’ players, though they remained unnamed.

As for the players still sidelined, Mandela Egbo and Todd Kane are still out with muscle injuries and their rehabilitation programs continue.

Predicting Charlton Athletic’s squad for this weekend is not easy given the unidentified doubts, but there is room for Holden’s rotation.

Matt Penney will be hoping to return to the starting XI after replacing Steven Sessegnon against Derby County, while one of Gavin Kilkenny or Jack Payne could start in place of Albie Morgan for rotation’s sake.

In attack, Macauley Bonne’s wait for a goal since his return has been prolonged, so Chuks Aneke could hope to return to the starting eleven in his place. However, it remains to be seen who is available for the game, with a tough test awaiting.
