    The Seagulls have targeted Potter, 43, having sacked Chris Hughton on Monday.

    After just two minutes the tie looked all but over but Doncaster played their way into the half and you wouldn’t bet against them winning the game tonight.

    Tommy Rowe’s low strike cancelled out Krystian Bielik’s early header for Charlton, leaving the Addicks 3-2 up on aggregate going into the second half.

    Does that strike a Doncaster arm in the box?

    Just to give you an idea of Doncaster’s ambition, left-back Danny Andrew is the furthest man forward to head wide from Malik Wilks’ deep cross.

    Rovers are playing a 4-3-3 but it’s very fluid, and probably just about getting the better of Charlton right now.

    Lyle Taylor and the Charlton faithful want a penalty as the striker goes down under a challenge from Doncaster’s Andy Butler.

    It’s a clever run from Taylor to get on the end of a deep free-kick but Butler does very little wrong and the ref rightly waves the protests away.

    Charlton goalscorer Krystian Bielik goes in the book after pulling back Doncaster’s Herbie Kane in the middle of the park.

    He can have no complaints there.

    Charlton 1-1 Doncaster (3-2 agg)

    Doncaster finished the regular League One season 12 points behind any of the other play-off sides and many – including myself – wondered if they could compete in these games.

    But Grant McCann now has them playing at a high intensity, after a very shaky start.

    Charlton are having moments but the combination play isn’t quite coming off for them.
