PREVIEW Oxford United v Charlton Athletic

A full guide to Good Friday's game at the Kassam Stadium

18 April 2019

Oxford United welcome Charlton Athletic to the Kassam Stadium on Good Friday (1pm)

TEAM NEWS
United welcome back former Charlton midfielder Ahmed Kashi after suspension but are still without Marcus Browne who misses the second of his three game ban on Saturday.

Kashi challenges John Mousinho for the holding midfield role while United will wait on the fitness of Gavin Whyte who has a slight hamstring problem. Jordan Graham stands by if required.

The Opposition

Manager Lee Bowyer has seen his side close the gap on the  automatic promotion places and will have a sold out away end behind his team on Friday

"I think all games now between now and the end of the season are banana skins, there are no easy games" he said. "That’s not just for us that’s for everyone.

"I think Luton will go up so there are four teams chasing second spot. All we can do is just be there and if they don’t capitalise on the opportunity that they have we’ll be there.”

Match Day
The RES gate behind the North Stand will be in operation for this game meaning fans cannot move from one end of the ground to the other behind that stand after the game. See the Match Pack block above for the best ways to make the most out of your day, including travel details and an away fans guide.

Tickets
This game is not all ticket and you can book your place online from oufctickets.co.uk or by calling 01865 337533 - the ticket office opens at 10am on Friday for personal callers
