Joe Aribo and Karlan Grant’s two goals in 15 minutes helped Charlton ease past Doncaster Rovers as they edge closer towards a playoff spot.

A Tom Anderson header onto his own crossbar fell kindly to Aribo as he poked the ball home for his third league goal this season.

Leading scorer Lyle Taylor would help double the lead when his brilliant lofted through ball found Grant at the back post to head home.

Charlton, who have halted a two-game dip following defeat to Rochdale, are now up to eighth in League One and three points behind sixth-placed Accrington Stanley.

Taylor passed a late fitness test to start as Lee Bowyer reverted to the starting 11 which convincingly beat Barnsley two weeks ago.

The opening exchanges were free-flowing, with Niall Mason testing goalkeeper Jed Steer early as he tried his luck from range.

Anderson hit his own woodwork from Ben Reeves’ in-swinging corner but Aribo was there to finish in the 18th minute.

Despite Doncaster still looking dangerous, Charlton could’ve scored again when Grant’s effort marginally missed the post after being played in by goalscorer Aribo.

But the hosts when further behind when Grant, left frustrated earlier when Taylor failed to play him in, nodded his early cross past goalkeeper Marko Marosi in the 33rd minute.

Now Charlton had their tails up and, when Jamie Ward cracked the post before Reeves couldn’t guide in his follow-up, it demonstrated the Addicks’ control.

After Doncaster boss Grant McCann introduced two changes at the break, the visitors came out with intent and had a strong 15-minute spell.

The Addicks’ defence was left panicking when substitute Alfie May raced onto a loose ball but Steer would eventually gather.

Aribo had perhaps one of Charlton’s best chances when he pulled a close-range strike narrowly wide of goal after Ward forced Marosi into action.

For Doncaster, former Millwall striker John Marquis went close with a header from just yards out.

Bowyer brought off Taylor and Reeves on the hour for Igor Vetokele and Mark Marshall, with the two providing solid contributions in their half-hour cameos.
