Score draw at Donny

Charlton drew 1-1 at Doncaster Rovers today which one can see as two points taken off Donny. Peterborough have now joined them on 55 points after their 4-2 win over Wycombe.

The Addicks went ahead through an own goal and then the home side equalised almost immediately. There was a late scare when Donny scored but it was rightly ruled offside. Indeed, Louis Mendez named the offside flag as man of the match. Report from Mendez here: Deserved point on the road

Lyle Taylor was denied after racing clear as Charlton started the stronger and it took a spectacular save from Marko Marosi to keep out a fierce drive from Krystian Bielik. Doncaster defender Paul Downing's header was cleared off the line by Chris Solly and Taylor drilled a shot off the upright, while Joe Aribo was denied twice in quick succession.

Charlton were gifted the lead on 72 minutes as Marquis, who had had a first-half goal disallowed for offside, miscued an attempted headed clearance into his own goal. But Doncaster were level within five minutes as Wilks smashed home a low shot.

Doncaster piled on the pressure with Dillon Phillips producing excellent saves on his line from Marquis and Lewis.

Banned supremo Lee Bowyer was pleased with the display this afternoon but not the fact that only one chance was converted. Says that any lingering top two hopes are over after results here and elsewhere today.

Doncaster boss Grant McCann complained that five decisions went against his side, but that's what happens when you are playing a team on the verge of being taken over by the EFL.
