On Tuesday, Charlton Athletic and Rovers played out a 1-1 draw at The Valley. Charlton Athletic were looking to get back to winning ways after losing 3-1 to Bolton Wanderers in their last match. Rovers, meanwhile, were able to continue their winning streak after a 2-1 win against Accrington Stanley in their last match. Charlton Athletic and Rovers currently occupy 14th and 20th spots in the table, with 10 points and 8 points respectively after 9 matches.

Charlton Athletic dominated the first half, when Corey Blackett-Taylor found the net, 9 minutes in. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Connor Wickham equalised for Rovers just before half-time and saw the first half out 1-1. With both teams struggling to produce anything meaningful in the second half though, the match ended 1-1.

Substitutions for Charlton Athletic included Albie Morgan, Charles Clayden, Jayden Stockley and Diallang Jaiyesimi for Conor McGrandles, Richard Chin, Miles Leaburn and Corey Blackett-Taylor, respectively. Rovers brought on Armani Little, to replace Connor Wickham.

The referee booked Conor McGrandles, Sean Clare and Ryan Inniss from Charlton Athletic and Ryan Inniss (2 yellow cards) went off with a red card, while Rovers’ David Davis, Dominic Bernard and Corey O’Keeffe also received a yellow.

Charlton Athletic will next play Fleetwood Town away, with Rovers facing Morecambe FC at home.
