Lee Bowyer is not getting carried away with Charlton’s play-off semi-final first leg win over Doncaster.

Two quick-fire first-half goals from Lyle Taylor and Joe Aribo gave the Addicks a healthy lead before Matty Blair pulled one back for the hosts late on.

With a 2-1 advantage heading into Friday’s second leg clash at the Valley, Bowyer’s side will be heavy favourites.

Charlton have not lost a league game on home soil since October, a 2-1 defeat to Coventry.

Bowyer said: “I’m a bit disappointed to concede so late on. A bit of fortunate went their way and it was undefendable for them on the far post.

“But we've got a one-goal lead going back to the Valley. We haven't been beaten there since the turn of the year [in all competitions].

“It’s going to be tough but we realise it's another 90 minutes. Anything can happen, we've witnessed that more than ever, how crazy football can be. It’s not over until it’s over. We’ll try to win the game.

“Out of possession we were solid, we limited them to chances and then knowing the players we've got we’re always going to create chances.

“We’ve got Lyle that scores goals, Joe Aribo with his trickery and he scores goals. I knew we’d create and it’s just whether we’d take the chances on the day. But they are still in it with a shout, but now I can’t wait until Friday.

“I’m over the moon because I know when we played here not so long ago, we left with a draw and you can say we were a bit fortunate that day.

“That’s why I changed the shape, you've got to respect who you're playing against. I realised what they were doing, hitting us on the break.

“Our shape was wrong when we were attacking, I had to put that right today and thought our shape worked perfectly.”

Bowyer changed from his favourable 4-4-2 diamond formation to a 3-5-2 shape, which saw Krystian Bielik drop back into defence with Patrick Bauer and Naby Sarr.

Explaining his tactical decision, he added: “When you play with a diamond, you have to rely on your full-backs to get forward.

“I felt when we played them here [in a 1-1 draw], what they did, when our full-backs went forward, our wingers didn't track [back].

“They kept hitting us on the break. That’s how they were hurting us. As soon as we gave it away, they hit us on the break five or six times.

“By playing the third centre-half, as you lose your wing-back, you’ve still got that cover. Sarr then stepped into left-back. That was the reason why I went with that.”
