There’s a clear underdog in the 2nd leg of the League One play-off semi-final between Charlton Athletic and Doncaster Rovers.

Doncaster are 5/1 to qualify, despite a late lifeline from the 1st leg result.

Doncaster will need to overturn a narrow 2-1 defeat when they travel to The Valley, home of Charlton.

Joe Aribo scored his 4th goal in as many games, after Lyle Taylor’s 22nd league goal of the season opened the scoring, but Matty Blair scored in the 84th minute to give Doncaster hope.

John Marquis scored as many goals as Charlton’s Taylor, during the normal league campaign (21), and BetVictor have the best price for a similar outcome of over 2.5 goals, valued 11/10.

Charlton haven’t been beaten at home since the 1st December.

They were beaten 2-0 in the FA Cup by their opponents here, Doncaster Rovers.

The Verdict

My bet prediction for this game won in the first leg of this fixture and also the second leg of the Leeds v Derby play-off, the latter also involved one team leading on aggregate before kick-off.

The game is on a knife edge and with the possibility of extra-time just one goal away, there is everything to lose for both sides and neither side will want to risk too much too early.

As like the first leg I wouldn’t like to choose a victor on the night but fancy the game to liven up in the second half when time starts running out for one team.
