Pirates At The Valley

ALL SHIP SHAPE AND BRISTOL FASHION
23-Nov 08:51, by Ketts
The Pirates visit The Valley this evening but will they plunder the points? Charlton will have a new defender in their squad but have decided not to appeal against Christian Dailly's red card.
Marcel Seip has been brought in on loan from Plymouth to bolster the back line ahead of Thursday's closure of the 'emergency loan' window.

Dutch born Seip is 28-years-old and is a right-back who can also play in central defence. He has made 11 appearances for the Pilgrims this season - including the match with Charlton at Home Park - and enjoyed loan spells at Blackpool and Sheffield United last season.
The club were considering an appeal to try and get Christian Dailly's red card rescinded but felt that the footage available was unlikely to make the bid successful. Dailly will next be available for the Brentford JPT semi-final.

The Addicks will be confident of continuing their current fine run against a Bristol Rovers side that has failed to win in their last five outings. The Pirates drew at Brighton on Saturday however, so Parkinson will not under estimate them.

With table-topping Brighton facing a tough game at Southampton, the Addicks will be looking to close the gap at the top.


Vital Quotes:

Phil Parkinson explained the reasons behind the move for Marcel Seip:

'With Christian suspended and the loan window closing on Thursday, it was important we moved quickly to bring Marcel in.

'He's a defender who can play right-back and centre-back and we just felt we needed another player like him in the squad.

'He wants to get some games here, and we look forward to working with him. He goes straight into the squad for the Bristol Rovers game.'

Charlton Athletic Team News:

Joe Anyinsah could return after his groin strain to resume his burgeoning partnership with Paul Benson. If so, Lee Martin could switch to the right though Scott Wagstaff has now recovered from illness. Dailly's enforced absence is likely to open the door for Jon Fortune.

Player to watch: Johnnie Jackson

His football brain has seen him reap a rich harvest of goals from midfield.

Bristol Rovers Team News:

Byron Anthony is suspended after picking up a fifth yellow card at Brighton and Will Hoskins may still not be fit enough to return.

Player to watch: Jo Kuffour
