Football - Jackson boost for Addicks

Charlton skipper Johnnie Jackson is in line to return to the squad for the Capital One Cup trip to Huddersfield.

PA Sport Report

The midfielder has missed the last two matches with a calf problem with boss Chris Powell opting not to risk him in Saturday's league meeting with Doncaster, which was abandoned at half-time due to a waterlogged pitch.

But Powell has pencilled Jackson in to get some playing time against the Terriers, although he could start on the bench.

Powell could also give the likes of Leon Cort, Cedric Evina, Danny Hollands and Marvin Sordell run-outs but midfielder Dale Stephens is struggling with a groin injury.
