Doncaster is really a misfit in midst of the sides that are taking part in this post-season proceedings. All the other squads posted a GD better than +30, while Doncaster could manage just +18.

Charlton gave all they could to get a direct-promotion spot, but they fell short three points. Still, they posted an awe-inspiring 88 points on the board and boasts of the second-best defensive record in the whole league.

Doncaster vs Charlton Prediction

Doncaster has been exceptional at home this season. They were unbeaten in 20 of their last 24 home ties and won four of their last five. Incredibly, the team scored two or more goals in 18 of these last 24 home fixtures. Going on, the squad realizes that they will be under massive pressure in the return leg, considering they will be on the road, against Charlton, who’s without a doubt the best team in the playoffs.

Count on the hosts to win this tie at any cost, without which there’s a negligible chance they would progress.

Charlton, as mentioned, is a team to be feared though. They are aware of the massive advantage due to the second leg being at their home, and even if they go on to lose or draw this match, an away goal would tip the scales even more to their side. Moreover, the team found the back of the net in six of their last seven matches on the road and did so twice or more in four of their last five overall ties. Expect either team to get on the scoresheet.
