Charlton vs Norwich City Team News:
Charlton is confident that top striker Jayden Stockley can recover from a hip injury in time to lead the line against their parent club on Sunday, but on-loan defender Akin Famewo will be unavailable to face his former team. As well as Sam Lavelle and Jake Forster-Caskey being ruled out of the squad, there will be other changes from the team that began the EFL Trophy match against MK Dons on Tuesday.
It is expected that Jackson will use a 3-5-2 system against their Premier League opponents. Conor Washington will play in the final third of the field for the hosts.
With Milot Rashica, Grant Hanley, Tim Krul, Teemu Pukki, Max Aarons, and Todd Cantwell all returning to the Norwich City squad, Smith said at his pre-match press conference that the club’s condition is “a lot healthier.” Lukas Rupp, Andrew Omobamidele, Mathias Normann, and Christoph Zimmermann, on the other hand, will still be unable to participate in the selection process.
However, since Norwich City faces West Ham in the Premier League three days after this match, Smith will be able to use some of his squad members, and Adam Idah may keep his place as centre-forward despite the return of Pukki.

The One-Liner Explainer:
Everything points to a competitive tie in South Wales, regardless of whatever squads their respective managers have picked. We predict that, even though the Bluebirds will be anxious to bounce back to winning ways, North End will outlast their opponents and may even win the game in overtime.
