Charlton Athletic vs Doncaster Rovers

, KO: 19:45 May 17, 2019, The Valley
Doncaster Rovers

CHARLTON'S charge towards the English Championship continues on Friday night when they welcome Doncaster Rovers to The Valley for the second leg of this League One playoff semi-final.

It's advantage Addicks following their a 2-1 victory at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday and as such they are favoured at 17/20 (Bet 365) to complete a playoff double over Doncaster.

The draw at 11/4 (Bet 365) would be enough to send Charlton to Wembley, however Doncaster must be victorious at The Valley in normal time, and they are an unfancied 7/2 (Bet 365) to do so.

Be that as it may, Rovers did revive their chances of turning this tie around after an 87th minute Matty Blair goal on Sunday gave Donny a semi-final lifeline.

However, it will be a tall order for Rovers to rescue this tie given the fact that they have only won once in their last 10 games away from home.

Therefore, Grant McCann's men can ill afford a similar start to the first leg when they were blown away by Lee Bowyer's side in the first half.

A similar start to this semi-final is feasible seeing as the Addicks are unbeaten in 17 on their own patch, haven't lost at home in League One since October and have superbly won six on the spin at the Valley.

Ending the season with such momentum made Charlton the bookies favourites to be promoted via the League One playoffs.

A large part of the London sides hot streak can be attributed to top scorer Lyle Taylor's terrific form. The former Falkirk and Partick Thistle forward is enjoying a fine season and netted his 24th goal of the campaign at the Keepmoat.

Taylor could inflict further damage on Donny on Friday night and take his tally to 25 for the season at 11/8 (Betfred)

With Taylor leading the line, Charlton will be confident of coming through this tie with a ticket to Wembley.

The Valley has become a fortress this season and I fancy the Addicks to make it seven consecutive wins at home at a tempting 10/11 (Coral)

Furthermore, the foundation of Charlton's faultless home form has been built on the divisions best defensive record.

Lee Boyer's backline has only been breached 15 times in 23 league games at The Valley, so it will be difficult for Doncaster to get the goals they need to save their season.

With such a formidable defence, coupled with their impeccable home form, back Charlton To Win To Nil at 21/10 (Coral) and to set up a fascinating playoff final with Sunderland.
