RETURN TO ACTION

02-Feb 05:32, by Ketts

After last week's game was called off, the Addicks return to action at The Valley on Saturday.

Now the transfer window has closed, the focus will be firmly on gathering enough points to make the play-offs.

Tha Addicks get an early chance to avenge their Checkatrade Trophy penalty shoot-out defeat at the hands of Oxford on Saturday.‎

Charlton will be seeking their fourth successive league win, and Karl Robinson's team should be fresh after having last week's fixture at Blackpool called off.

Robinson is beginning to get his injured players back, and will have a few decisions to make before naming his team.

The game will come too soon for Jason Pearce, but he should be available soon.

Ben Reeves missed the trip to Blackpool with injury but could be available again.‎

Nicky Ajose has returned to the club, but has a slight groin‎ problem at the moment.

Oxford are in mid table, but their confidence took a blow when they lost 7-0 at home to league leaders Wigan.

‎Robinson's team could look something like this:

Amos; Solly, Konsa, Bauer, Dasilva; Kashi, Aribo, Fosu, Mavididi, Marshall; Magennis.

Subs: Phillips, Lennon, Jackson, Forster-Caskey, Kaikai, Reeves, Zyro.‎

‎The referee will be Keith Stroud from Hampshire.

Robinson now has a squad packed with exciting, pacy players and will have a juggling act to fit them all in.

The manager will have plenty of options on the bench if he needs to change things during the game, and he will be disappointed if his team does not continue their winning run.
