A Full guide as Oxford United welcome Charlton Athletic in the 3rd round of the FA Cup with Budweiser

United welcome Charlton to the Kassam Stadium tonight (7.45pm) for an FA Cup with Budweiser 3rd round replay. Here we present a full guide to the game.

Team News
United will be without Dave Kitson and Nicky Wroe for the game. Kitson has an ankle injury which kept him out of the win at Wycombe on Saturday while on-loan Wroe is ineligible. Josh Ruffels and Scott Davies compete for Wroe's place in midfield

See Andy Melville previewing the game in Yellow Player right now where we also have a great Preview Show.

The Opposition 
Just one win in their last nine league games has left Charlton fighting to stay clear of trouble in the Championship but their quality was clear in the second half of the 2-2 draw at the Valley last week. “We know our FA Cup record isn’t the best in recent years but I’m desperate for us to go on a run as I think that could galvanise everyone," said manager Chris Powell. “Winning games is a habit, a good habit, and it would give us a lift.”

Tickets are still available at advance prices until 2pm today via or from the ticket office on 01865 337533. Normal league prices apply for this game
