Alexei Smertin looks to have played his last game for Charlton as he finalises a move back to Russia with Dinamo Moscow.

The midfielder, who is on loan from Chelsea, has not been included in the squad to take on Middlesbrough at the Valley on Sunday in the Barclays Premiership.

Forward Marcus Bent is a doubt with hamstring problems brought on by a back injury, while winger Dennis Rommedahl (rib) and defender Gonzalo Sorondo (foot) look set to remain on the sidelines after a postponed reserve match in midweek delayed their comebacks.

Provisional squad: Myhre, Young, Hreidarsson, Perry, Powell, Ambrose, Holland, Kishishev, Thomas, Hughes, M Bent, D Bent, Euell, El Karkouri, Spector, Andersen, Randolph, Bothroyd, Bartlett, Fortune, Rommedahl, Sorondo.
