Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Doncaster Rovers will be looking to put an end to their five-game winless run in the Championship round 39 when they take on Charlton Athletic at Keepmoat Stadium. The Donny had no more than one shot on target in the 1-0 loss to MK Dons, with the team dropping out of the playoffs zone, and, no doubt, they face a difficult task in Friday’s football match.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, have been producing fine displays on the travels of late, and they are surely capable of matching Doncaster at Keepmoat Stadium. Northern Ireland attacker Conor Washington, who suffered an injury in the 2-2 draw with AFC Wimbledon, is unlikely to feature for the visitors. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the horizon at Keepmoat Stadium, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Reece James):
Reece James is a talented Chelsea defender who plays for Wigan Athletic on loan. Born in Redbridge, England on December 8, 1999, James started his youth career at Chelsea football academy at the age of 6. The talented teenager played for England U18 and U19 teams and he currently represents the U20 team on the international stage.
Reece James scored 3 goals in 45 appearances for Wigan in the 2018/2019 Championship campaign, but that did not help the Latics avoid relegation to the League One. His numbers from the 2018/2019 season are impressive as he completed 91 successful tackles, 54 blocks, 44 successful dribbles and 93 clearances.
James, on the other hand, has yet to find the net for the England U20 national team. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as both centre-back and defensive midfielder as well. Reece James turned professional in March 2017.
Highlighted Team (Charlton):
Charlton Athletic are yet another capital club that will compete in the 2019/2020 Championship season. Founded back in 1905, the Red Robins welcome their opponents at the Valley, the stadium which can hold up to 28,111 spectators. Charlton Athletic wear red shirts and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas black is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Winning of the 1946/1947 FA Cup trophy is considered the club’s biggest success. The Red Robins defeated Burnley 1-0 in the title game, with Chris Duffy scoring the winner for Jimmy Seed’s charges in extra-time.
Fellow capital clubs Crystal Palace and Millwall are regarded as Charlton’s fiercest rivals, whilst Samuel Bartram, who made 579 appearances for the club is one of the most famous footballers who played for the Valley outfit. The club based in London will compete in the English second tier in the 2019/2020 season following a three-year absence.
