Oxford United's FA Cup tie given green light + Video

OXFORD United's FA Cup tie at Charlton Athletic should go ahead tomorrow night after The Valley passed a pitch inspection.

The playing surface at the Championship club was assessed by a local official on Monday lunchtime and deemed to be playable.

A waterlogged pitch had forced the third round clash to be postponed twice already and also forced Charlton's league game against Barnsley on Saturday to be called off.

Further rain is forecast overnight, but the club will cover the playing surface as a precaution.

A further inspection will be made tomorrow by the match official.

Huddersfield Town will host the winners in the fourth round on Saturday, January 25.
