Charlton midfielder Ben Reeves is in line for a return to action in Saturday’s second round FA Cup tie against Doncaster Rovers.

The 27-year-old has not featured since picking up an injury in the league fixture against the weekend’s opponents.

Having won their previous four league games, including a 2-1 win at Burton on Tuesday, manager Lee Bowyer says the upcoming fixture will give him a chance to rest certain players and give those in need of minutes game time.

“Ben Reeves will play on Saturday,” said Bowyer

“Who plays on Saturday is more about how tired they are today [Thursday], there's a lot of tight groins and stiffness.

“It was a heavy pitch the other day [at Burton], so it's more a case of trying to wrap them up and look after them than people coming back because it's only Ben Reeves coming back.”

Changes are expected from the side that beat Burton mid-week as Bowyer conceded once again that promotion from League One is top priority this season.

“We'll still be going out there to try and give 100 per cent and to win the game. That's the way they are and that's the way I am.

“Every game we want to win but we are in a good place in the league and I said from day one that the most important thing is promotion.”

Charlton reached the second round after beating Mansfield Town 5-0 in a replay at The Valley.
