Four changes in line up

Following the midweek Carabao Cup fixture against West Ham United, Lee Bowyer has brought Connor Washington, Alex Gilbey, Jake Forster-Caskey and Albie Morgan back into the starting XI, whilst Charlie Barker makes his second league start for the club.

Ben Amos continues in goal whilst Barker, Deji Oshilaja, Darren Pratley and Ben Purrington make up the defence. Forster-Caskey will once again feature in the centre of midfield alongside Morgan and Gibley with Alfie Doughty operating on the right-hand side. Debut goal scorer Connor Washington will once again take position on the left, with Macauley Bonne looking to open his account for the season through the middle.

Josh Davison returns to the bench for the first time this season alongside fellow academy graduates Ashley Maynard-Brewer, George Lapslie and James Vennings. Erhun Oztumer, Jonny Williams and loanee Dylan Levitt make up the bench, after all three featured at the London Stadium in midweek.

Jason Pearce remains out and will be in the Valley Pass commentary box for today's game, while Chuks Aneke misses the game through illness.  (Unfortunately, Covid-19).
