Oxford – Charlton Preview: Latest Form, News, and Potential Lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Oxford vs Charlton lineups.

Oxford

Oxford played arguably their best game of the season so far last weekend when dominating one of the main favourites for promotion Barnsley away from home on the way to a 3-1 success. The U’s have won 3 in a row now and from a team barely escaping the drop last term they now look like serious promotion contenders. 

New striker Harris has hit the ground running and the ex-Cardiff man scored 3 goals in the last 3 rounds. 

Defender Thorniley and striker Murphy are still in rehabilitation. Neither had been missed much. Another striker James Henry only just resumed light training after injury and for him, the coming contest is expected to come too early. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Beadle (GK), Long, Moore, Negru, Brown, McGuane, Brannagan, Bodin, Rodrigues, O’Donkor & Harris 

Charlton

Charlton started the new season with a 1-0 win but they have suffered 4 defeats in a row since then. Last weekend another very shaky defensive display at The Valley led to a 2-3 loss vs Port Vale. 

The Addicks have now conceded 9 goals in the last 4 rounds and they continue to commit lots of basic errors at the back. 

Star striker Miles Leaburn is yet to play this season due to an ankle injury. He remains unavailable. Campbell is also out so the options in attack are restricted. 

Camara missed the last game due to a minor muscle issue. If he feels better now he might start as Dobson wasn’t hugely impressive in the last game. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Maynard-Brewer (GK), Asiimwe, Jones, Hector, Edun, Dobson, Anderson, Taylor, Kanu, May & Blackett-Taylor 

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: Mark Harris 

Oxford’s new striker Mark Harris has settled at the Kassam Stadium very quickly. Harris scored 3 goals in the last 3 rounds and he looks to have developed great understanding with his teammates already. 

Considering how shaky Charlton’s defenders had been lately we can see Harris increasing his goal tally in the coming match.
