Pratley set for late fitness test ahead of FA Cup clash

Darren Pratley is still working hard to shake off a knee injury, and could be assessed late on ahead of Charlton’s FA Cup second round clash with Doncaster.

Billy Clarke is still working his way back to full fitness after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last December, so remains doubtful to feature.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer has insisted he will let his players continue to decide who takes any penalties.

Karlan Grant buried the winner from the spot in Tuesday’s 2-1 victory at Burton, but not before animated discussions with Lyle Taylor and Tarique Fosu – but an unfazed Bowyer will leave his players to continue organising the penalty takers.

Tommy Rowe is pushing for a start for Doncaster after featuring as a replacement in Tuesday’s 2-0 home win over Blackpool.

Mallik Wilks is also in contention to start after a substitute cameo in midweek, as he chases full match sharpness after hamstring trouble.

Joe Wright is still a doubt after a knock, but Liverpool loan midfielder Herbie Kane will be itching to continue his goal-scoring form after hitting the net on Tuesday.

John Marquis should lead Doncaster’s forward line again after also netting against Blackpool.
