Charlton Athletic 4-0 Oxford United

Oxford fall at the first hurdle in the League Cup to Championship side Charlton 4-0


  1. Oxford travelled to the Valley looking to recapture the spirit of 2002, when Ian Atkins' side knocked Charlton out of the League Cup on penalties. That, however, is about as good as things have ever got against Charlton for the yellows...
  2. Other than that, it's a step into the unknown for both clubs, with the last meeting between Oxford and Charlton coming in a 2002 League Cup fixture. On that occasion a drab 0-0 draw (a staple of the Ian Atkins era) was brought to life by a dramatic penalty shootout which ended with Jefferson Louis blasting Oxford into a third-round tie against Aston Villa. That victory was all the sweeter for being our first against Charlton since 1987 – 13 matches had passed in that time and we had lost the last seven of them consecutively. In fact, that win was our first ever at the Valley after 16 previous attempts
