Tony Mowbray has made six changes to his side for the trip to Charlton Athletic in our final away trip of the season.

Due to injuries and fatigue, and following on from promotion which was sealed at Doncaster, David Raya, Elliott Bennett, Derrick Williams, Craig Conway, Bradley Dack and Danny Graham all drop out of the XI.

Coming into the side are Jayson Leutwiler, Paul Caddis, Amari'i Bell, Paul Downing, Jack Payne and Dominic Samuel, who are all handed the opportunity to impress.

Leutwiler makes his league debut for the club, with Raya out with a groin problem. Dack (hamstring), Conway (foot), Bennett (knee) and Williams (abductor) all miss out on the squad through injury.

Four of our Under-23s Premier League 2 Division 2 title winners make the bench and will each be hoping for some first team action this afternoon in south London.

Charlton include highly rated defender Ezri Konsa in their XI, who appeared alongside our loan forward Adam Armstrong in England Under-20s' World Cup success in the summer of 2017.

Charlton Athletic: Amos, Page, Reeves, Forster-Caskey, Konsa, Magennis, Pearce (c), Marshall, Bauer, Kashi.

Substitutes: Phillips, Jackson, Dasilva, Mavididi, Lennon, Aribo, Zyro.

Rovers: Leutwiler, Caddis, Lenihan, Downing, Mulgrew (c), Bell, Smallwood, Evans, Payne, Armstrong, Samuel.

Substitutes: Fisher, Graham, Whittingham, Antonsson, Tomlinson, Travis, Nuttall.
