Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer has named an unchanged side for today’s League One semi-final first leg at Doncaster Rovers.
The Addicks are missing Igor Vetokele (thigh) and Chris Solly, who completes his four-match suspension.
And Bowyer has opted for the same starting 11 which thumped Rochdale 4-0 on the final day of the regulation campaign.
Doncaster have only lost one of their last 15 league matches at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Jonny Williams, who had been absent with an ankle injury, is back in the matchday 18.
Doncaster manager Grant McCann also names an unchanged team.
Doncaster Rovers: Marosi, Blair, Butler, Downing, Andrew, Kane, Whiteman, Coppinger, Sadlier, Marquis, Wilks. Subs: Jones, Rowe, Crawford, Anderson, Smith, May, Lewis.
Charlton: Phillips, Dijksteel, Sarr, Bauer, Purrington, Bielik, Cullen, Aribo, Morgan, Parker, Taylor. Subs: Maxwell, Page, Pearce, Pratley, Lapslie, Forster-Caskey, Williams.
