MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Cambridge United


The Addicks will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to 2022/23 in SE7 when Cambridge United make the trip to The Valley on Saturday.

Tuesday night’s 5-1 win against Plymouth Argyle moved Charlton into sixth place in the Sky Bet League One table and manager Ben Garner will be hoping for more of the same against the U’s this weekend.

Ben Garner expects Diallang Jaiyesimi to be available for selection after picking up a knock in training, but the fixture will remain too soon for Mandela Egbo (knee) and Chuks Aneke (calf).

Meanwhile, the visitors will assess the fitness of George Williams, with there being a chance he could be available.


Cambridge travel to The Valley looking to bounce back from their 4-1 defeat to Portsmouth at Fratton Park in midweek.

The result leaves Mark Bonner’s side 13th in the table, with two wins and two defeats from their opening four matches.


Charlton have faced off with Cambridge on 21 previous occasions with the Addicks winning seven, the U’s eight and the other six encounters resulting in a draw.

The last meeting between the two sides came at the Abbey Stadium in April 2022, when Corey Blackett-Taylor and Conor Washington’s goals gave the visitors the win.


Carl Brook will be the man in the middle for Saturday. The official last refereed a Charlton game back in November 2021 – a 4-0 victory over Havant & Waterlooville in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup in SE7.

Brook will be assisted by Marc Wilson and Declan O'Shea, while Daniel Bonneywell is the fourth official.
