PREVIEW Oxford United v Charlton Athletic

A full guide to tonight's game at the Kassam Stadium

29 December 2022

Sponsored by

Oxford United welcome Charlton Athletic to the Kassam Stadium this evening in Sky Bet League 1 (7.45pm)

United are without Marcus Browne who has a scan today on a hamstring injury picked up at Ipswich on Boxing Day. Lewis Bate missed that game through illness and boss Karl Robinson will wait to see if the on-loan Leeds man is well enough to return to the squad.

Simon Eastwood also missed the game at Portman Road with a calf strain, Ed McGinty coming into the side for a league debut. Eastwood is hopeful of a return but youngster Kie Plumley is added to the squad as goalkeeping cover.

Kyle Joseph and Sam Baldock remain unavailable through injury.

New Charlton Boss Dean Holden saw his side draw 1-1 against Peterborough United on Boxing Day in his first game at the helm.

“We take the point from Peterborough and we’re now really looking forward to this Oxford game,” he said “We’re going to try and implement our style on them to try and come back to Charlton with three points. That’s the aim.

“Obviously Karl has been in there a while now and they have got a style of play. All of the players are embedded into that philosophy and they have got some real threats in the forward areas.

“Obviously we know where their threats are and, like any game, it’s important that we actually go out and make sure we exploit their weaknesses. I’m really confident that there’s players in this team that can do that.”

REPORT Oxford United 3 Charlton Athletic 1

U's end 2022 with a win. Full time report

29 December 2022

Oxford United ended 2022 on the up with an important 3-1 win over Charlton Athletic at the Kassam Stadium this evening.

Having opened up a 2-0 lead at half time through goals from Billy Bodin and Matty Taylor, United were caused a few anxious moments when Miles Leaburn pulled a goal back just after the hour mark before Gatlin O'Donkor poked home a third goal to seal all three points for the home side.

There was almost an early lead when a trademark Cameron Brannagan free kick came back off the bar after 12 minutes, but with Josh Murphy beating men at will on either wing, United dominated the first half and a goal was always on the cards.

The first came after 20 minutes and the outstanding Murphy was the inevitable provider, finding enough space on the right to whip a superb ball across the face of goal and pick out the unmarked Bodin to slam the ball into the roof of the net.


Four minutes later and Taylor doubled the lead, or at least made a conversation with Bodin necessary! Bodin was very much the provider, smashing a drive goalwards that hit Taylor en route and flew past the wrong-footed Ashley Maynard-Brewer to make it 2-0. Taylor's goal even if Bodin's drive was on target.


Some of the football was very easy on the eye and Charlton’s New Manager Bounce had gone decidedly flat as the U’s dominated all areas of the pitch. Man-of-the-Match Lewis Bate, back in the side after illness, blasted two shots well over the bar either side of half time and all was looking set fair.

However, a triple substitution at the break gave the visitors fresh legs and it needed some stout defending from central defenders Elliott Moore and Sam Long to keep the Addicks at arms length until the 66th minute, when Daniel Kanu powered down the left and crossed and sub Leaburn twisted to head past McGinty to make it 2-1.

The same player should have levelled soon after, but McGinty got a vital touch to his shot from close range to preserve the lead. But having ridden their luck at times, United killed the game off with eight minutes left when sub Yanic Widschut fired at goal and the ball squirmed slowly under the keeper for O'Donkor to finish the job with his first touch after coming off the bench.


Three goals, three points and the perfect end to the year. Let's see if we can kick off 2023 in the same fashion when we welcome Exeter City to the Kassam Stadium on New Year's Day.
