The Addicks stay at the Valley, where they are still unbeaten, on Saturday with another tough match against Leicester, but much like the game in midweek this is a match that we should be looking to win again.
Svetoslav Todorov is fit again, but Luke Varney made an impressive full debut in midweek so will probably keep his place alongside Chris Iwelumo despite Izale McLeod's dazzling ten minute burst at the end.
Yassin Moutaouakil, Ben Thatcher and Matt Holland are closing in on returns with Yassin Moutaouakil making the bench in midweek, and Matt Holland playing an hour of a reserve match in the week, so these two could make the bench, but Ben Thatcher is struggling for fitness.
The Addicks striker made a highly impressive full debut on Tuesday against the Canaries so will be hoping to retain his place against a Foxes side, who he supported as a kid.
James Wesolowski picked up an injury in the week and Elvis Hammond and Clive Clarke remain unavailable.
Former Addick stars Radostin Kishishev and Shaun Newton will also hoping to return to the Valley with the Foxes, James Wesolowski injury could open the door for Radostin Kishishev.
The former Spurs man has been in great form for the Foxes this season, appearing to be their star performer, so if he can be kept quiet it will help.
The Addicks were 2-1 injury time losers, in FA Cup fifth round in February 2005, the last time the sides met.
In all competitions, the head-to-head stats stack up like this: Charlton won 20, Leicester 17, draws 8.
Referee: S Tanner
Assistants: J Flynn and S Rubery
Fourth Official: G Horwood
As usual, at the Valley the Addicks have to be winning, so again I have to say an Addicks win.
