Two goals within the space of ten minutes ended Charlton’s hopes of going through to the third round of the FA Cup after losing 2-0 to Doncaster Rovers.

It was two simple set pieces which unraveled the Charlton defense two headed goals from Danny Andrews and John Marquis was the difference between the two sides.

Here is now Newsshopper rated Charlton’s players:

Dillon Phillips – 6 - After becoming second choice keeper following the loan signing Jed Steer from Aston Villa, Phillips is now used as the ‘Cup’ keeper. He made two fantastic saves in the final minutes to prevent the scoreline from being respectable to embarrassing.

Toby Stevenson – 5 - The youngster had a nervy few moments in the opening minutes but he grew into the game and produced an satisfactory performance.

Anfernee Dijksteel – 4 – Not a performance you would expect from a defender who is struggling to make Bowyer’s first team. He looked slow and ragged and was beaten too easily by Marquis for Doncaster’s second.

Naby Sarr – 6 - The central defender hustled and bustled with ex-Lion John Marquis throughout and came out on top. There is a reason why Bowyer is so reluctant to drop him from the side and he proved it again against Doncaster.

Mark Marshall – 7 – The Addicks No.7 started as a fullback but that did not mean he was restricted from bombing forward. Doncaster’s opening goal seemed to hit him on the way in but there was nothing he could do about it.

Ben Reeves – 5 - The ex-MK Dons midfielder rusty at times but that is to be expected from a man who is working his way back from injury. He linked up well with Lapsie and Mahoney in the midfield.

Billy Clarke – 6 - He was Charlton’s best technical player by a mile and pulled all the strings. His free-kick in the second half was only whiskers away from breaking the deadlock.

George Lapslie - 7 – The 21-year-old was at the thick of everything the Addicks, if a statistic was churned out that he touched every blade of grass no eyebrows would be raised.

Taylor Mahoney – 5 - Sat deep to allow which gave the likes of Lapsie and Clarke to roam. Satisfactory performance but not much to get excited about.

Nicky Ajose – A very quiet day going by his usual standards. You would have forgotten he was on the pitch until a Mark Marshall cross whisked past his head in the second half.

Recco Hackett-Fairchild – 6 - An impressive performance from the young striker. He dropped in deep and made runs in behind at the right times however, it was not to be as his flick on goal in first half was the closest he got to scoring.


Albie Morgan – 5 – Brought on by Bowyer to bring some fresh legs to the midfield but he did not get on the ball enough to make an impact.

Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu – N/A
