Oxford United welcome Charlton Athletic to the Kassam Stadium in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday (3pm)

TEAM NEWS
The U's will be without Sam Winnall, Sam Long, James Henry, Marcus McGuane,Elliot  Lee and John Mousinho through injury although Boss Karl Robinson is refusing to allow the lengthy injury list to affect his mood.

"It's not ideal but we always knew what might happen" he told iFollow. "We have had a long, hard season and injuries are part and parcel of it. Lots of clubs will be the same so we just roll our sleeves up and get on with things. We have good players to come in and they are going to play a big part now because there are some massive games coming up."

THE OPPOSITION
The Addicks are a strong side away from home with four wins and just one defeat from their last six games on the road, leaving them ninth in the table.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer knows what to expect against the U's though.

"Since Karl 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.”
