Team news | Charlton Athletic v Swansea City

First team
Yan Dhanda

Yan Dhanda returns to the Swansea City starting line-up as head coach Steve Cooper makes the one change for tonight’s game at Charlton.

The attacking midfielder comes into the side in place of George Byers, who drops out of the matchday squad with a slight hamstring injury.

The Swans are otherwise unchanged from how they lined up against Reading at the weekend.

That means Freddie Woodman starts in goal, with a back four of Connor Roberts, Mike van der Hoorn, Joe Rodon and Kyle Naughton ahead of them.

Matt Grimes and Jay Fulton continue their record of having started every Championship fixture alongside each other in midfield, with Andre Ayew and Bersant Celina out wide.

Dhanda plays in the middle of a trio operating behind central striker Borja Baston.

The hosts name former Swan Darren Pratley on their bench.

Charlton Athletic: Dillon Phillips, Jason Pearce (captain), Macauley Bonne, Sam Field, Ben Purrington, Conor Gallagher, Adam Matthews, Jonathan Leko, Tom Lockyer, Josh Cullen, Erhun Otzumer.

Subs: Ben Amos, Deji Oshilaja, Jonny Williams, Jake Forster-Caskey, Chuks Aneke, Darren Pratley, Naby Sarr.

Swansea City: Freddie Woodman; Connor Roberts, Mike van der Hoorn, Joe Rodon, Kyle Naughton; Jay Fulton, Matt Grimes (captain); Andre Ayew, Yan Dhanda, Bersant Celina; Borja Baston.

Subs: Erwin Mulder, Declan John, Ben Wilmot, Tom Carroll, Wayne Routledge, Jordon Garrick, Sam Surridge.
