What is Rovers and Charlton’s form?

Rovers’ final day victory over Coventry City was their first win in four games. Prior to that they won four on the bounce.

Charlton ended the regular season in blistering form which saw them leapfrog Portsmouth and Sunderland into third place. The Addicks won ten of their last 13 games and kept seven clean sheets in the process.

What happened when these sides met earlier this season?

This will be the fourth time Rovers and Charlton have faced each other this term.

The Addicks ran out comfortable 2-0 winners at The Valley in November.

A month later Rovers returned to south London and knocked a much-changed Charlton team out of the FA Cup.

The two sides drew 1-1 at the Keepmoat Stadium in March. Rovers had two goals controversially ruled out for offside – one deep into stoppage time.
