Charlton Athletic were victorious in their game in-hand on Tuesday against play-off rivals Lincoln City. The match ended 3-1 to Charlton with Jayden StockleyRyan Inniss and Chuks Aneke on the scoresheet.

It's only one point between sixth placed Portsmouth and eighth placed Charlton, with Oxford United sitting in seventh as they have a better goal-difference of four goals over Charlton. 

Portsmouth face Accrington Stanley at home, whilst Oxford are also at home against Burton Albion in the final game of the season.

Hull City are five points clear at the top going into the final game, after they earned their return to the Championship with a 3-1 win over Wigan Athletic in their last game.

A factor of Hull having nothing to play for could be huge for Charlton when they face them on Sunday.

Team news

Despair for Jake Forster-Caskey as he's ruled out for Charlton after the midfielder suffered an ACL injury during Tuesday's victory over Lincoln.

Diallang Jaiyesimi is also set to miss out again with a hamstring injury.

Hull could name the same line-up as they did against Wigan, unless they look to start the likes of loanees Regan Slater and Daniel Crowley in their final game.

Thomas Mayer, Max Clark and Brandon Fleming remain on the sidelines.

Predicted lineups

Charlton Athletic XI: Amos, Famewo, Pearce, Inniss, Maatsen, Watson, Pratley, Gilbey, Gunter, Stockley, Washington.

Hull City XI: Ingram, Elder, Jones, Greaves, Coyle, Smallwood, Docherty, Honeyman, Wilks, Lewis-Potter, Magennis.

Ones to watch

Chuks Aneke has been the man off the bench in the last two games, stealing a last-minute equaliser against Accrington, and bagging the final goal against Lincoln in the week. 

The former Arsenal man has spent most of the season coming off the bench, but he's bagged 15 league goals in the process. This is why he's the one to watch, the Addicks could be desperate for a goal late on, and he could be the man to step up.

22-year-old Mallik Wilks has had a phenomenal first full season at Hull this year, when they signed him from Barnsley in the summer after a loan spell at the club.

Wilks has 19 goals and eight assists in the league this year, and he will be desperate to hit the 20 mark tomorrow. The forward will bring his pace to the game and look to counter the Charlton attacks, who need to go all out for the win.

Previous meetings 

Charlton have had the better out of the two sides since their first meeting back in October 1929, where Charlton came away 2-0 winners over Hull. 

There's been 19 wins for Charlton, 11 draws and 12 wins for Hull since that date. 

In the reverse fixture this season, Hull won comfortably by two goals to nil. Hakeeb Adelakun scored early on, and a goal from Greg Docherty earned the Tigers all three points.
