Charlton Athletic will be looking to get back on track in the battle for League One promotion this afternoon, when they travel to Portman Road to face Ipswich Town.
Tuesday night’s 4-2 defeat to struggling Burton Albion saw the Addicks’ eigth-game unbeaten run in the league come to an end in dramatic fashion, and that is something they will no doubt be desperate to bounce back from today.
But given how they performed in midweek, manager Lee Bowyer may now feel that he is going to have to make some considerable chances to his side’s starting lineup, if they are to get back to winning ways in East Anglie.
Here, we take a look at two changes the Charlton boss could make to his side this afternoon in an attempt to do that.
Maddison out, Morgan in
Things haven’t really clicked for Marcus Maddison since his arrival at Charlton in the summer, and that was certainly evident on Tuesday night.
The attacking midfielder struggled to make an impact on the game throughout, and he was replaced by Morgan just before the hour mark. With the introduction of Morgan at least handing Charlton more of a spark at The Pirelli, Bowyer may be tempted to switch those two around on the teamsheet today.
Bogle out, Aneke in
Bowyer did not hide his frustrations with Omar Bogle after withdrawing the striker – who as yet to score since his summer move to the Addicks – before half time at Burton on Tuesday.
Coming on his place at the Pirelli was Aneke, and with 27-year-old going on to score for the fourth time in eight league games this season, you have to feel he is the more reliable source of goals that Bowyer ought to be turning to from the start as they go in search of three points this afternoon.
