Curbs considers more changes

Charlton manager Alan Curbishley must again decide whether to make more changes as he looks to return to winning ways against Blackburn in the Carling Cup tomorrow night.

Charlton manager Alan Curbishley must again decide whether to make more changes as he looks to return to winning ways against Blackburn in the Carling Cup tomorrow night.

Danny Murphy was dropped to the bench and winger Dennis Rommedahl missed out completely against Aston Villa on Saturday, when the Addicks lost a fourth successive Barclays Premiership match.

Both could return to midfield tonight, while veteran goalkeeper Dean Kiely may come back in for Stephan Andersen.

Kevin Lisbie, Gonzalo Sorondo, Shaun Bartlett and Jason Euell are all set for a run-out with the reserves tonight, and so will not feature against Blackburn.

Provisional squad: Kiely, Young, Hreidarsson, El Karkouri, Spector, Ambrose, Kishishev, Smertin, Murphy, Thomas, Bent, Andersen, Powell, Holland, Hughes, Perry, Rommedahl, Bothroyd, Johansson, Myhre.
