Charlton will be looking for a much-needed win when they travel to take on Gillingham this evening.
🔢 Here's how your Addicks line up this evening…

After a busy summer, that saw boss Nigel Adkins heavily backed in the market, there was the expectation that the Addicks would be pushing for promotion.
However, they have lost five of their seven league games, meaning they go into the game tonight sitting 23rd in the table. That has increased the pressure on Adkins, and he has decided to make several changes from the side that lost to Wycombe last time out.
The likes of George Dobson, Harry Arter and Jayden Stockley have dropped out, with Corey Blackett-Taylor, Albie Morgan and Elliott Lee among those to be in from the off tonight.
Have Charlton Athletic won or lost more against each of these 25 English teams?
It’s fair to say that the number of changes has baffled the support, although some understand why Adkins has made such drastic decisions.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the team news from Twitter…
Good joke, now release the real team pls

Fans wanting players to be dropped for their performances and then crying when players get dropped 😭 no reason this lineup can’t do the job. Been the same each week in fairness. But lineup is fine. Tactics and performance is what matters

No Leko or Kirk, this man has lost the plot

This can’t be our best XI? Surely? I really hope to be proved wrong, but the only way this team wins, is if its still level by the time we bring on Leko and Stockley. #cafc

What the hell is that! I’d rather have our keeper and the bench V there team than have that starting 11! Bye Adkins

So NA is looking for a pay off? Looks like a cup team looking to get some minutes under their belt!
