Oxford United's FA Cup tie at Charlton 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.

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.
