Through to the fourth round

Charlton have gone through to the fourth round of the league cup for the first time since 2006, making ir a treble in cups in the last week.  Goalkeeper Joe Wollacott was the hero as the visitors beat Stevenage 5-4 on penalties in the Carabao Cup after a 1-1 draw.

The Addicks advanced to the fourth round, with Scott Fraser converting the winning penalty after Jake Taylor saw his effort saved by the Ghanaian.

Boro's Luke Norris had scored from the spot in the first half and it looked to be decisive until super sub Chuks Aneke fired home in the 87th minute.

Stevenage were gifted the opener in the 22nd minute when Charlton defender Richard Chin inadvertently handled in the area and Norris coolly converted the resulting penalty.

Stevenage continued to press, with Taylor forcing Wollacott into a stop before clipping the bar minutes later.

Charlton were much improved after the interval and with three minutes to play, substitute Aneke clinically finished to send the game to a penalty shootout.   It was his 17th goal as a substitute, a club record,

After four flawless spot-kicks, Wollacott dived to his left to save Taylor's, before Fraser made no mistake to send the Addicks through.

Ben Garmer would like Crystal Palace in the next round: https://londonnewsonline.co.uk/id-love-charlton-crystal-palace-in-efl-cup-fourth-round-ben-garner-hoping-for-premier-league-club-in-thursdays-draw/
