Charlton welcomed back striker Marcus Bent into the starting line-up for their visit to Fulham.
The former Everton frontman was ineligible for the midweek FA Cup quarter-final replay defeat at Middlesbrough but partnered namesake Darren at Craven Cottage.
Fulham were without defender Carlos Bocanegra and midfielder Michael Brown. Bocanegra was ruled out with a thigh injury while Brown began a three-match suspension following his sending off at Portsmouth.
Chris Coleman kept faith with his attacking pair of Brian McBride and Heidar Helguson as they looked for a win which would effectively end any relegation fears.
