Doncaster Rovers v Charlton Athletic team news: Igor Vetokele and Krystian Bielik start

Lee Bowyer makes two changes as Charlton travel to Doncaster Rovers this afternoon.

Krystian Bielik and Igor Vetokele both return to the starting line-up for the top six clash at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Lee Bowyer, who serves the first of a three-game touchline ban this afternoon following his dismissal at AFC Wimbledon last week, rewards Vetokele with a starting berth after his match-winning goal at the Cherry Red Records Stadium. Mark Marshall will therefore start amongst the substitutes.

Vetokele will partner Lyle Taylor up top, with Bowyer expected to revert to the 4-4-2 diamond formation. Taylor now has three games left to see out without receiving a booking that would take his tally up to 10 for the campaign and mean a two-game ban.

Arsenal loanee Bielik has himself returned from a suspension for hitting the 10-caution mark and slots into the base of the midfield, with George Lapslie dropping to the bench.

Charlton: Phillips, Solly, Bauer, Sarr, Purrington, Bielik, Cullen, Aribo, Williams, Taylor, Vetokele. Subs: Maxwell, Dijksteel, Marshall, Lapslie, Fosu, Reeves, Pratley.
