CHARLTON face Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday without defender Jon Fortune.

The centre-back is out for between four to fix weeks after damaged a medial ligament in the match at Nottingham Forest.

Linvoy Primus is still not fit enough for the side, so Pardew will pick between Martin Cranie, Kelly Youga and Jose Semedo as Fortune's replacement.

Yassin Moutaoukil could be set for a return. Pardew is also waiting on the fitness of Zheng Zhi to find out if he will be available.

The Addicks are set to return to a 4-4-2 formation after two games on the road with 4-5-1.

Svetoslav Todorov is improving his fitness and could feature in the squad.

Pardew said of Saturday's match: "We need to be on the front foot against them and take the match to them. I expect them to play 4-51 and try to keep it tight. It will be down to us to try to break through."
