Charlton Athletic picked up their first win of the League One in a 1-0 triumph over Derby County at The Valley on Saturday.

The Addicks did rely on some poor finishing from the Rams in the first half in particular, with Jason Knight missing a golden opportunity to level proceedings in the second half, but the hosts came on strong in the second half on the whole and Corey Blackett-Taylor finished off a very well-worked move to clinch the three points.

Queens Park Rangers are tough opposition in the Carabao Cup first round and were boosted by an impressive 3-2 win over Middlesbrough at the weekend.

Both sides will likely rotate with the league a priority, as they prepare for this London derby.

Here, we are predicting seven changes from the line-up that faced the Rams to walk out under the lights…

The six players that may take priority to be rested ahead of the weekend’s trip to Sheffield Wednesday are: Steven Sessegnon, Ryan Inniss, Albie Morgan, Scott Fraser, Jayden Stockley and Blackett-Taylor.

Conor McGrandles suffered a concussion against Derby and is likely to be unavailable, while Chuks Aneke and Mandela Egbo remain sidelined from injuries they picked up in pre-season.

Lucas Ness, Aaron Henry and Daniel Kanu could push for some involvement from the club’s U23 squad to give Ben Garner some more options.
