Charlton Athletic

Last updated: Sat 18 May 2019 06:31
In Brief

Hold a 2:1 lead from the first leg. Chris Solly returns after completing a four-match ban. Virtually at full strength.

Looking Back

Charlton go into the return leg of their play-off semifinal clash with Doncaster with a 2:1 lead, which would have been larger had they not conceded a late goal.

The Addics have been in superb form for two months now and will be backed by a sold-out Valley as they try to secure a Wembley place.

Looking Ahead

Chris Solly is finally available, as the first leg was the last of his four-match ban.

Lee Bowyer has confirmed that no new injuries were suffered in the first leg. Igor Vetokele remains the sole absentee.

Points of Interest

The firsts leg win over Doncaster was the Addics' fourth consecutive win and their eighth win in their last nine outings.

Doncaster Rovers

Last updated: Sat 18 May 2019 06:31
In Brief

Trailing 2:1 from the first leg. Their overall recent form has been disappointing. Will once again be at full strength.

Looking Back

Doncaster were second-best for large parts of the first leg of their play-off semifinal clash with Charlton, but scored late on to give themselves hope going into the second leg.

Their overall recent form has been disappointing. They managed to just get over the line and make the play-offs and need to play well above their recent standards to turn things around against an in-form Charlton side.

Looking Ahead

Veteran James Coppinger will be available for selection despite not emerging for the second half of the first leg.

Grant McCann will once again have a full squad available to pick from.

Points of Interest

Doncaster have already visited Charlton twice this season. They suffered a 2:0 defeat in the league in November but claimed a 2:0 FA Cup win in December.
