The game sees both sides needing the points for differing reasons, Rovers to maintain their top-six push, the Addicks to ensure they remain in the Championship.
"They've got points to get on the board to help them stay in the division," said the manager. "From experience last year you use that as a motivation.
"They seemed to have had a good couple of wins recently and none more-so than going to a difficult place like Hillsborough last week and winning there.
"So we know we'll be in for a game but we are up for the fight and be ready to match that."
