TEAM NEWS: New boy Jordan Graham on the bench at Charlton

Charlton v Ipswich: Aaron Cresswell for Tyrone Mings is the only change that Mick McCarthy has made to his Ipswich Town starting XI for today’s game at Charlton Athletic.

Cresswell – who leads the way in terms of Championship assists (7) and has been dubbed ‘the best left-back in the league’ by his boss – returns after a two-game suspension.

New loan signing Jordan Graham, the 18-year-old pacey winger who arrived from Aston Villa on Thursday, is on the bench and has been handed the No.17 squad number.

Both Paul Taylor (shoulder) and Luke Hyam (back) failed fitness tests and haven’t travelled.

Charlton are unchanged following their 2-0 home win over Doncaster on Tuesday night.
