Hatter's Plan To Halt Addicks

Charlton Athletic
vs.
Luton Town

The Valley

27 November

3.00pm


Charlton's busy November schedule draws to a close tomorrow with the FA Cup Second Round tie against Luton Town.
But for the intervention of Sky, the Addicks would have played their ninth match of the month on Tuesday. The JPT area semi-final at Brentford has been put back until Tuesday 14 December to fit in with the satellite broadcaster's schedule. The seven matches so far this month have produced five wins and two draws in three competitions.

Victory tomorrow would bring a potential financial windfall as the big clubs enter at the next stage of the competition.

Parkinson's squad is now stretched with Semedo and Doherty nursing injuries, Dailly and Fry suspended and Martin unavailable. Several of the fringe players such as Tuna, Stavrinou, Jenkinson, Davisson and Perkins are out on loan so the bench will have several youngsters on it.

Elliot is likely to continue in goal with Francis, Fortune, Llera and Jackson in front of him. Wagstaff is the only real option on the right of midfield with Reid replacing Jackson on the left. Alan McCormack, impressive when he came on against Bristol Rovers, will partner Racon in the centre.

Paul Benson is unlikely to be rested and will be partnered by one of Abbott, Anyinsah or Sodje. The manager may wish to get Benson and Anyinsah back in tandem as soon as possible.

Yado Mambo could be joined on the bench by academy players, Callum Harriott, Freddie Warren and Jordan Cousins.

The harsh 30 point penalty inposed by the Football League still rankles with Luton but has galvanised their supporters. They will be backed by a large and vocal following and the Addicks will have to be on their mettle to ensure there are no slip-ups. The Hatters currently sit in third place in the Blue Square Premier, just behind AFC Wimbledon and Crawley Town.

It will not be an easy match but Parkinson will fancy his team to win in their current form.
