OXFORD United's FA Cup clash at Charlton Athletic has been postponed for the second time.

The third round tie, which was switched from last Saturday to this Wednesday due to a waterlogged pitch at The Valley, has been rearranged for Tuesday, January 14.

The news is not unexpected, as the Sky Bet Championship club warned before the weekend to anticipate a new date.

They have set up a dome this week to protect the playing surface and dry it out, after revealing one end of their drainage system had collapsed.

It means United, who have not played since losing 2-0 to Scunthorpe United on December 29, will next be in action this Saturday, when Portsmouth visit the Kassam Stadium
