Charlton vs Doncaster
English FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 1 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The Valley (London).
Charlton and Doncaster were ruthless towards their respective lower division rivals in first round replays. The Addicks destroyed the League Two outfit Mansfield Town 5.0 at home last Tuesday. The impressive win was inspired by a Lyle Taylor hat-trick. Lee Bowyer’s men backed up such a comprehensive victory with a 3-1 home success in the League One tie against Bristol Rovers last weekend. Ward, Aribo and Ahearne-Grant were on target for Charlton as the team broke into the top six in the league ladder.
The visitors will also enter this in the highest of spirits. They celebrated a commanding 7-0 victory over the non-league side Chorley in the replay of the opening round fixture. Alfie May stole the show bagging four goals on the evening. The Dons went on to avoid a defeat in a 1-1 draw against one of the main promotional challengers Barnsley seven days ago. Midfielder Herbie Kane pushed them in front at Oakwell seven minutes after the interval, but only for Cauley Woodrow to bring the Tykes back on level terms ten minutes later.
