Speaking to the media ahead of the game, Appleton confirmed that midfielder Panutche Camara will remain sidelined as he continues to work his way back to full fitness.
Goalkeeper Harry Isted and Terry Taylor are long-term absentees but thankfully, the returning international players are all available. That includes Terell Thomas, James Abankwah, Michael Hector and Karoy Anderson.
With no new injury blows emerging, it could be a largely similar team for Charlton Athletic. The back five will likely stay the same with new signing Sam Walker on the bench to provide cover for goalkeeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer.
In midfield, Scott Fraser will be keen to come into the side. He could play in a more advanced central role with George Dobson sitting deep or he could come in on the right-hand side, seeing Slobodan Tedic, Tyreece Campbell and/or Chem Campbell named on the bench.
Up top, Charlton Athletic academy graduate Miles Leaburn could start alongside Alfie May. But, Chuks Aneke will also be hopeful of starting.
The tie kicks off at 15:00 tomorrow afternoon.
