MATCH THREAD : Charlton Athletic Vs Oxford Utd : Monday 1st January 2024 : KO 15:00

First of all...HAPPY NEW YEAR one and we are all recovered from any over indulgences from the last few days...and last night...🍺🥂😵

Today we kick off the new year and with 50% of the season done, we start the downward slope towards the seasons end with what should be a good game against Oxford Utd at The Valley of Dreams, now agreed our record is far from anything to crow about, and we will have to be at our game..(please 🙏) to get something out of this encounter, it would be nice to start the new year with three points, sure we would all agree...
Must say my enthusiasm has taken a few knocks lately and today will be a case of glass half full..just!, but more out of hope rather than expectation, I refuse to let myself get too negative, until all hope is lost....1-0 will do nicely please...

We've met on 51 previous occasions winning 18, the U's have 14 victories, with the remaining 19 games ending all square, Oxford won the reverse fixture 2-1 at the Kassam Stadium back in August thanks to Tyler Goodrham's brace.

Let's see, eyes down for a full house...if only!

Tyreece Campbell comes in for Alfie May, who misses out with the minor back injury that saw him substituted against Bristol Rovers on Friday night.

Boban Tedić, who scored at the Memorial Stadium, misses out with concussion, while Scott Fraser returns to the squad following a calf issue. Academy prospect Henry Rylah is also named as a substitute.

Tennai Watson, Michael Hector, Lloyd Jones and Tayo Edun continue in an unchanged backline ahead of stopper Ashley Maynard-Brewer.

Captain George Dobson is joined by Karoy Anderson and Chem Campbell in the same three-man midfield, with the returning Tyreece Campbell and Corey Blackett-Taylor operating either side of Daniel Kanu.

Fraser and Rylah are joined on the bench by Sam Walker, Nathan Asiimwe, Terell Thomas, Louie Watson and Patrick Casey.

Charlton: Maynard-Brewer; T.Watson, Hector, Jones, Edun; Dobson, Anderson, C.Campbell; T.Campbell, Kanu, Blackett-Taylor

Subs: Walker, Asiimwe, Thomas, L.Watson, Fraser, Rylah, Casey
