MATCH PREVIEW | Oxford United v Charlton


The Addicks are back on the road on Thursday, travelling to Oxford United in Sky Bet League One (7.45pm KO GMT).

Dean Holden began his reign as Charlton Manager with a 1-1 draw against Peterborough United at The Valley on Boxing Day and the boss will be looking to go one better at the Kassam Stadium.

Terell Thomas and Albie Morgan could both return following a bout of illness, though Diallang Jaiyesimi (hip) and Chuks Aneke (hamstring) are both injury doubts.

Joe Wollacott (finger), Mandela Egbo (quad), Eoghan O’Connell (knee) and Conor McGrandles (ankle) remain unavailable.

The hosts will check on the fitness of Simon Eastwood (calf), Lewis Bate (illness) and Marcus Browne (hamstring), but Alex Gorrin (knee) and Kyle Joseph (ankle) are set to miss out.


Oxford United currently sit 15th in Sky Bet League One, two places and a point above the Addicks having played the same number of games.

Karl Robinson's side come into the contest on the back of a 3-0 defeat at Ipswich Town on Boxing Day. That result was preceded by a goalless stalemate against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.


Charlton and Oxford have squared off on 49 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 18, the U's 12 and the remaining 19 games resulting in draws.

The last meeting between the two teams came in the reverse fixture at The Valley in October, when Jayden Stockley's second-half strike cancelled out Marcus Browne's early opener.


Ben Toner will be the man in the middle on Thursday. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in February 2022 – a 2-1 defeat at Bolton Wanderers.

Toner will be assisted by Paul Yates and Christopher Wade, while Sunny Gill is the Fourth Official.


The Addicks will be sporting their white away kit in Oxfordshire.


Tickets are no longer on sale from The Valley's Ticket Office.

Remaining tickets will be available to purchase on the gate at the Kassam Stadium on Thursday evening.
