MATCH PREVIEW | Cambridge United v Charlton

The Addicks will be looking to bounce back from their Good Friday defeat as they head to Cambridge United for the penultimate away game of the 2021/22 season.

With a top-half finish now the aim for Charlton, victory at the Abbey Stadium would bring them to within a point of their opponents who currently occupy 12th place.


The Addicks will continue to be without the injured Sam Lavelle (shoulder) and Ryan Inniss who will be serving the final match of his three-game ban, while Elliot Lee and Scott Fraser are doubts having missed the last two outings with knocks.

Cambridge could remain without creative midfielder Wes Hoolahan, who missed out on the recent trip to Wigan through injury.


Cambridge have enjoyed a solid season on their first return to the third tier in 20 years, holding a mid-table position with 15 wins, 12 draws and 16 defeats from their 43 games so far.

A good run of form has seen Mark Bonner's men earn four wins from their last five games, beating table-toppers Wigan Athletic 2-1 away from home on Friday to thrust themselves into the top half of League One.


The Addicks have faced the U's on 19 previous occasions with Charlton winning six, Cambridge seven and the remaining six games ending in draws.

The last time the sides met each other at the Abbey Stadium was back in August 1992, with Alan Pardew netting a late winner in a 1-0 win for the Addicks.

The reverse fixture earlier this season saw Conor Washington bag a brace to secure a 2-0 win at The Valley in December.


Paul Howard will oversee proceedings at the Abbey Stadium on Tuesday. He has refereed 27 games this term, producing 87 yellow cards and five red cards.

He last took charge of the Addicks for the 1-0 Valley defeat to Wycombe Wanderers in January.

Howard will be assisted by Leigh Crowhurst and Joseph Stokes with Declan Ford as the Fourth Official.


The Addicks will be sporting their home strip at the Abbey Stadium.


Around 900 travelling Addicks have snapped up tickets for Tuesday's game, while tickets will also be available on the night with a £2 increase on the original ticket price: Adult: £24, Over 65 and U24: £19, U18: £12, U12: £7, U5: Free of charge when accompanied by an adult
