Charlton predicted XI to face Luton

Charlton Athletic were left disappointed against Blackburn Rovers, coming out of the game having suffered a 2-0 loss against the play-off chasers.

However, it is likely that will all be forgotten if Lee Bowyer’s men are able to put things right with a win on Saturday.

That is because this is a real six-pointer, as they face Luton Town, who are currently sitting 23rd in the Championship table.

The result of this game will have a massive immediate impact on the league’s lower echelons, as an Addicks win could see them go eight points clear of the relegation zone, while a loss could leave them in a very dangerous position.

With that in mind, it is vital that Charlton get the win, and FFC has predicted the team Bowyer could use to make that happen, including two changes from the Blackburn defeat.

Having a consistent backline can be seen as a positive for teams as they look to become a unit, so Dillon Phillips could be protected by Tom Lockyer, Jason Pearce and Naby Sarr, while Alfie Doughty and Adam Matthews fulfil the wing-back roles. It will be hoped they can be more resolute than was the case against Blackburn though.

The midfield stays largely the same as well, with Josh Cullen staying in the team, having been a rare bright spark last time out, while David Davis remains.

There is surely little chance of Aiden McGeady being in the starting XI after he was invisible against Blackburn. Thus, with Jonny Williams among those injured, as reported by the club’s official channels, Erhun Oztumer may be the man to come into the midfield three.

Who is that?!?! Can you name all of these obscure Charlton players?

Considering the magnitude of this game, Bowyer will want to use his best players, which could mean he puts Macauley Bonne into the team from the beginning. The 24-year-old played 21 minutes against Blackburn after missing the previous seven games following a hamstring injury. However, having scored eight goals and assisted one, there will be a definite temptation to include him.

This will see him line up alongside the talismanic striker Lyle Taylor, who will be one of the first names on the team sheet after scoring nine goals and assisting one.

Meanwhile, Charlton’s deadline day decision has already been justified.
