League leaders Charlton could again be without their captain Johnnie Jackson. The midfielder, who scored both of the Addicks’ goals when they defeated MK Dons 2-1 in his last league outing, missed the trip to Tranmere on Saturday with a calf problem and remains a doubt. Danny Haynes made his full debut in the 1-1 draw with Rovers but lasted 60 minutes before coming off with a hamstring problem and that injury is likely to keep him out.
Meanwhile, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro is an injury doubt for Rochdale. Akpa Akpro was replaced with 15 minutes remaining in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Bournemouth and the striker will have a hamstring problem assessed ahead of kick-off. If Akpa Akpro fails to make it, on-loan forward Michael Symes could make his first Rochdale start having been unavailable against his parent club at the weekend. Midfielder Simon Hackney has resumed light training following his abdominal injury, but is thought to be at least a month away from action.
