Tough, tough game as we look to keep our recent fantastic form going and keep ourselves in the playoffs, and also overtake our opponents with a win

I'd very happily take a point right now though, although we are definitely capable of pulling off the win

We've got a nice settled side at the moment although Joe Rothwell is suspended so Saturday's match winner Alex Mowatt will likely come in for his first start

Charlton are one of those teams who can beat anybody and lose to anybody.

We've lost three league games so far this season and two of those were to teams currently in the bottom three (Plymouth Argyle and Gillingham).

A draw might be a fair punt on this one Dan as both teams may play a cautious game and shut each other out. Don't you just hate it when that happens..?

Your boys have got to watch Tarique Fosu-Henry though. He's on a pretty hot streak right now with five goals in the last three games including a pretty impressive hat trick against Fleetwood a couple of weeks ago.

Game on.

I haven't seen Oxford play a cautious game this season. Would be happy with a draw.

Another good game against a good team, we started poorly and deservedly fell behind, before an equaliser out of the blue, think we shaded it after that but both teams had chances, Fosu ripped Ribeiro to shreds before we adapted and doubled up on him, anonymous after that

Charlton should have won that game easily before we scored missing some absolute sitters. Ironically, their goal whilst calmly taken was gifted through comedy defending/goalkeeping. 2nd half was even overall.

Cracking finish from Ribiero for our goal with our 1st shot on target.

If Charlton could shoot they'd have a really good attack for L1 but they need to learn how to hit the barn door rather than constantly missing it.

Pretty much sums up what I've heard from other people.

A good game between two decent sides with a draw being the fair result.

I'm happy with a point at a difficult place to go and with Bradford coming up at the weekend but this is a familiar theme for us, come out the traps quickly, score early and dominate, miss various chances and then concede. Happens far too often, we need to start putting games to bed early when we have the chances and not allow decent teams to get back into it.
