WEMBLEY CALLING

09-Jan 04:38, by Ketts

The Under-23s were heavily defeated on Monday, and there is a Checkatrade Trophy game on Tuesday.

‎Jason Euell's Under-23 side were hammered 5-1 by Queens Park Rangers at Harlington on Monday afternoon.

Euell deployed three central defenders, and played with wing-backs. The system did not suit several of his players.

Rangers led 5-0, and could have been further in front, before Jo Cummings netted a late consolation for the visitors.

Charlton: Harvey; Barnes, Cummings, Blumberg, Bowry, Edwards; Carter, Morgan, Macoll; Doughty, Anderson.‎

Subs: Osaghe, Yao, Yamfam, Umerah.

Goal: Cummings 85.‎

Queens Park Rangers:‎ Dieng; Furlong, Perch, Lynch, Williams; Shodipo, Manning, Owens (Akinola 76), Eze; Oteh (Tilt 62), Osayi-Samuel.‎
Subs (not used): Akinola, Bowman, Tilt, Kakay.‎

Goals:‎ Osayi-Samuel 33, 49, Oteh 37, 56, Tilt 64.‎


‎Attn: 45.‎

‎Charlton host Oxford in a Checkatrade Trophy match on Tuesday evening. Karl Robinson may opt to field a stronger than usual team for the game.‎

Some of the‎ youngsters who have featured in the competition started against QPR in the Under-23 match on Monday, which may indicate Robinson intends using more of his senior squad than usual.

‎This is the last round that will be regionalised, and the winners will progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Trying to predict the team is very difficult, but the Addicks could look something like this: ‎

Phillips; Dijksteel, Konsa. Bauer, Dasilva; Aribo, Jackson; Lapslie, Reeves, Ahearne-Grant; Hackett-Fairchild.‎

Subs: Maynard-Brewer,  Yamfam, Maloney, Holmes, Mavididi, Umerah.‎

‎The referee will be Andy Haines from Tyne & Wear.

The winners will be two games away from a Wembley appearance‎, which may be an incentive for the clubs to take the game more seriously than usual.
