Charlton, who famously lifted the the FA Cup in 1947, have been impressive in this season’s tournament thus far, comfortably dispatching Havant & Waterlooville and Gateshead, scoring six times and conceding zero, and they will now be looking to navigate their way into round four at the expense of Norwich.
The Addicks will enter this weekend’s match off the back of a 1-0 victory over MK Dons in the EFL Trophy, but they lost their last league fixture at home to Wycombe Wanderers on New Year’s Day.
Johnnie Jackson‘s side are currently 13th in the League One table, boasting 29 points from 24 matches, which has left them 14 points off the playoffs, so it will be very difficult for them to challenge for a return to the Championship for the 2022-23 campaign.
Not since 2006-07 have Charlton played Premier League football, and they are now a long way from the top level but will be keen to prove that they can still compete with top-tier sides on a one-off basis when Norwich visit the Valley this weekend.
The Addicks last locked horns with the Canaries in August 2017, suffering a 4-1 loss at Carrow Road, while they have not beaten Norwich at home in any competition since May 2009.
Charlton are hopeful that leading goalscorer Jayden Stockley will overcome a hip problem to lead the line on Sunday, but on-loan defender Akin Famewo will be unable to face his parent club.
Sam Lavelle and Jake Forster-Caskey are also unavailable for selection, but there will be a number of changes from the side that started against MK Dons in the EFL Trophy.
Conor Washington will feature in the final third of the field for the hosts, while it is likely that Jackson will again opt for a 3-5-2 formation against their Premier League opponents.
As for Norwich, Smith revealed during his pre-match press conference that the club’s situation is “a lot healthier”, with Milot Rashica, Grant Hanley, Tim Krul, Teemu Pukki, Max Aarons and Todd Cantwell all back.
Lukas Rupp, Andrew Omobamidele, Mathias Normann and Christoph Zimmermann, though, will still be unavailable for selection.
Smith will want to send a competitive team onto the field, but the fact that the Canaries play West Ham in the league three days later means that there will be opportunities for some squad players, so Adam Idah could retain his spot at centre-forward despite Pukki’s return.
