Charlton vs Nottm Forest: Elliott Ward expected to be fit
Elliott Ward is expected to be fit for Nottingham Forest.
Ward was forced off with a dead leg just before the hour mark in Tuesday night's 6-1 hammering of Huddersfield.
Reds boss Billy Davies said: "Hopefully with a few days of rest he will be okay."
If Ward does not make it, Danny Collins will come in at centre-half.

Fellow centre-back Daniel Ayala, on loan from Norwich, is "around six days away" from returning from the hamstring injury that has kept him out for almost two months.
Davies has also revealed that Chelsea full-back Sam Hutchinson has returned to training and should be back to resume his loan spell with the Reds within the next fortnight.
Davies reported no new absentees following the Huddersfield game ahead of his first away match since returning as manager.
Charlton will check on Dorian Dervite ahead of the game.
The midfielder went off with a tight hamstring during Tuesday night's 2-1 win at Leicester but manager Chris Powell expects him to be available.
Striker Danny Haynes came on for Dervite having recovered from his recent hamstring injury and grabbed a spectacular winner to put himself in the frame for a place in the starting line-up.
Midfielder Danny Hollands is still missing with a foot problem but Powell has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from.
Powell this week allowed striker Bradley Wright-Phillips to join Brentford on loan for the rest of the season and admits that could free up room to bring in a new face for the run-in.
