MATCH PREVIEW | Oxford United v Charlton

Charlton will be hoping to continue their good form on the road and make it back-to-back wins as they head to the Kassam Stadium to take on Oxford United on Saturday (3pm).

The Addicks' last six trips away from home have seen them pick up four wins and one draw, suffering just one defeat, in stark contrast to their recent form at The Valley.

Currently sitting in ninth position, five points from the play-off positions, but with more games played than those around them, Lee Bowyer's men will have to hit top form in their final 14 games if they are going to achieve their goal of a top-six finish.

Oxford, meanwhile, have enjoyed a rich vein of form since December, going on a run of 10 wins and one defeat in an 11-game period, but they have levelled out in recent weeks and are without a win in their last four, picking up three draws and suffering one defeat.

Karl Robinson's side currently occupy 10th position, one place and one point behind Charlton having played two games less.

Ryan Inniss remains absent but will make his long-awaited return to full training next week.

Alex Gilbey will also return to training with the group in the coming days and will sat out this weekend, but Chuks Aneke is expected to be fit after limping out of Tuesday's victory at Wigan Athletic.

Darren Pratley will serve the second game of his two-match ban following his second dismissal of the campaign against Blackpool last weekend.

For Oxford, they will be without Elliot Lee, son of former Addick Robert Lee, who was injured during their midweek draw with Peterborough United.

Sam Winnall and Sam Long will also be missing through injury, as will long-term absentees Marcus McGuane and James Henry.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer: "Since Karl [Robinson] left here, he’s built a good squad. It takes time to build a side and he’s put a good side together. They have players that move the ball well and that can hurt you.

"But if we do the basics right, we are a good side. We showed that on Tuesday and on a lot of occasions this season. I’m expecting a good game, it will be a good match. I don’t think there will be much in it.”

Oxford boss Karl Robinson: “The physio room is full but I said at the start of the season that nothing is going to get me angry.

"If we were sat here with 25 or 30 points we’d be worrying but we always knew the nature of the season. We had a maximum of three weeks break before we had to start again so it has been an ongoing process. I’d never want to change it because I have learned so much about myself, my staff and my players this year and we know that in future years it will stand us in good stead."

Charlton and Oxford have met on 45 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 18, Oxford 10 and the remaining 17 playing out as draws.

The reverse fixture saw Charlton run out 2-0 winners at The Valley in October thanks goals from Conor Washington and Andrew Shinnie, while Ryan Inniss was sent off in the 66th minute.

The Addicks' only victory at the Kassam Stadium came in an FA Cup replay in January 2014 with Danny Green adding to Yann Kermorgant's brace.

Our last league victory away at Oxford came at their former Manour Ground home in January 1998 with Clive Mendonca and John Robinson scoring late on to secure a 2-1 win.

Tom Nield will be the man in the middle at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday. He has taken charge of 23 games this season, producing 84 yellow cards and two reds.

He last officiated an Addicks fixture back in November 2018 - a 2-0 victory at Walsall.

The match will be played behind closed doors and Charlton supporters are reminded to maintain social distancing guidelines and to stay away from the stadium when the match is taking place.
