Doncaster Rovers 1-1 Charlton Athletic

Doncaster Rovers and Charlton Athletic battled out a thrilling draw which kept them one place apart in the League One play-off places.

A John Marquis own goal put Charlton ahead deep into the second half but it was quickly cancelled out by a fine finish from Mallik Wilks.

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 smashing home a low shot.

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

Marquis looked to have won it with the last kick of the game but was flagged offside again after Ben Whiteman hit the bar.
