Charlton Athletic are waiting to see when their FA Cup tie at AFC Wimbledon will be played.

The match is scheduled for the weekend of December 2 and 3 and would normally be on the Saturday.

But the likelihood is it will be chosen as one of the 10 Sunday games for the BBC on December 3.

Addicks’ boss Karl Robinson doesn’t mind when the match is played and, regardless of the impact he has on the fixture, he is ready for anything.

“Whatever comes my way will come my way,” he said. “It’s a great draw for the club and it’s a local derby, in the best domestic competition in the world.

“It will be a great challenge as a team, regardless of whether they [AFC Wimbledon] like me or not.

“It’s about the two teams going toe to toe on the Saturday at 3pm, or whenever the game is penned in to be.

“I’m sure it will be great for you [the press]. With column inches and everything else.

“I’m sure I’ll say something stupid in the build-up to the game and get myself in more trouble with them [AFC Wimbledon]. It’s probably a banker really isn’t it.

“If I can wind somebody up you know it’s something I will definitely do. But I’ll get it back.”
