Stevenage – Charlton preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Stevenage vs Charlton lineups.

Stevenage

Newly promoted Stevenage have been playing very well up to now. Last weekend the Stags conceded a stoppage-time equaliser when hosting Carlisle, the final score was 2-2. Still, the point was enough to see Stevenage move top of the table after 7 rounds. 

Stevenage are using modern high press and this seems to be working very well in this division so far. The Stags lead the league for interceptions made inside their opponent’s half of the pitch.  

Striker Pressley remains a doubt but the more serious issues are in defence. The main wing-backs Wildin-James and Smith continue rehabilitation. Also, the starting centre-back Vancooten is sidelined at least until October. 

In better news, influential midfielder Forster-Caskey is an option again after serving his three-game ban. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Hammond (GK), Sweeney, N. Thompson, Piergianni, Freeman, L. Thompson, Burns, Forster-Caskey, Roberts, McNail & Reid 

Charlton

Charlton changed managers during the international after a run of 4 defeats in a row in August led to the sacking of Dean Holden. As of this week, the experienced Michael Appleton is officially in charge. 

The new gaffer is not expected to shake things too much from his first game in charge but some changes to the personnel and the approach are possible. For starters, the useful striker Miles Leaburn could be trusted with his first start of the season under the new boss. 

The Addicks remain crippled in midfield though. All of McCrandles, Camara and Fraser are in rehabilitation right now. Normally, if fit, at least two of those would have been starting. Also, the main left-back Chin remains unavailable. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Isted (GK), Asiimwe, Hector, Jones, Edun, Campbell, Dobson, Anderson, Blackett-Taylor, May & Leaburn

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

Player to Watch: Jamie Reid

Stevenage’s striker Jamie Reid has been impressive so far. He scored 4 goals in 6 appearances and also has hit the woodwork twice. Reid tends to benefit from the high press his team uses and he’s often found in space when the ball gets intercepted. 

With Stevenage particularly aggressive in their pressing when on home turf we can see Reid playing a pivotal role once again.
