Charlton Athletic’s unbeaten start to the new season will be put to a massive test when they face Queens Park Rangers in the first round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday. The League One side drew one and won the other from their two opening games in the league this season. Both teams will be heading into this match on the back of a victory at the weekend, hence confidence will be flowing high for them both. Compared to their opponents, QPR are playing at a division higher in the Championship, making them the slight favourites in this clash. However, Charlton can take a lot of comfort from their positive start to the season.

In the Championship this season, Queens Park Rangers started with a 1-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers. However, they responded well to that setback, beating Middlesbrough 3-2 on Saturday. On the same day, Charlton overcame Derby County 1-0. In their League One opener, they recorded a 2-2 draw at Accrington Stanley. Last season both sides did not have the best of finishes in their respective leagues. While Charlton finished 13th in League One, Queens Park Rangers could only manage an 11th-place finish, something they both will look to improve upon this campaign.
Queens Park Rangers do not have any fresh injury concerns, which could allow their manager to name a strong team. Nonetheless, they are expected to rotate the squad massively for this encounter, which could allow many of the young players to get an opportunity to play. Meanwhile, Conor McGrandles could very well miss this match for Charlton after being substituted in the first half against Derby. Other than that, they also have a strong squad to choose the players from for the Tuesday clash.
The EFL Cup match between Charlton Athletic and Queens Park Rangers will take place at The Valley on Wednesday at 12:15 am IST.
