Wednesday make the trip to The Valley looking to stretch their unbeaten league run on their travels to five matches.
The Owls have been in impressive form on the road over the last month, with the latest league outing seeing Dave Jones's men return from high-flying Hull City with a convincing 3-1 win.
Wednesday met Charlton Athletic just over a month ago at Hillsborough and ran out 2-0 winners. A similar scoreline in London will do just nicely as the Owls look to pull further away from the Championship relegation zone.
Owls boss Dave Jones told the official SWFC site:
"They change a little bit depending on whether they play at home or away.
"At home they press you high, they get players forward and they have got good footballers.
"They`re on a good run at the moment, just as good as what we`re on and they`ll want to continue to do that."
Addicks boss Chris Powell told the official Charlton website:
"We are in a decent place and we need to keep that going and really keep our levels up and see how many points we can get this year.
"We know it`s very tight. We are two or three points form seventh place and the top six are seven points away. Sixth place is a long way away but also we are a number of points from the bottom three, which is important.'
Charlton will be hoping both striker Danny Haynes and defender Leon Cort are passed fit to feature after suffering hamstring problems. The duo will be handed late fitness tests ahead of the match.
Andy Hughes has returned to training following a long-term achilles problem but the midfielder is not yet ready for a return to first-team action.
Former Owl Michael Morrison is expected to start in the Charlton defence.
The former Leicester City forward is Charlton's joint top-scorer so far this season with six goals and he will be looking to add to that tally against the Owls.
Wednesday will have new loan signings Leroy Lita Danny Pugh available for selection after their moves from Swansea City and Leeds United respectively on Friday.
Their arrivals may come too soon for a place straight in the Owls' starting line-up but the duo are both expected to be named in Dave Jones's squad.
Jeremy Helan and Mamady Sidibe have returned to their parent clubs after enjoying loan spells of their own at S6, but midfielder Rhys McCabe could return following illness.
Owls fans will have a keen eye on new loan signings Lita and Pugh, especially Lita, who will be charged with bagging to goals to help lead Wednesday away from the drop zone.
Charlton wins: 17
Wednesday wins: 19
Last Time Out:
Wednesday 2-0 Charlton
The sides met only a month ago and goals from Rhys McCabe and Jeremy Helan were enough to give the Owls an early Christmas present with all three points.
