Doncaster Rovers have struggled with their forward play of late. Their goals record stands at just 4 vs opponents over their previous six matches.

- are without an away win for the past 2 league games.
Head to head

Team News: Doncaster Rovers
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just one fitness concern for the Doncaster Rovers gaffer Andy Butler to contend with due to a largely intact group of players. Tyreece John-Jules (Torn Muscle) will miss out.
Team News: Charlton Athletic
Due to a completely healthy group to choose from, Charlton Athletic manager Nigel Adkins has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash. Darren Pratley is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We’re thinking that Charlton Athletic and Doncaster Rovers could both well score here although it’s hard to see a clear-cut winner.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. We’re therefore expecting a close game with a 1-1 draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
