Joe Aribo and Karlan Grant scored twice in 15 minutes to help Charlton edge closer towards a playoff spot during their win over Doncaster Rovers.

Aribo poked home the opener after the visitors’ Tom Anderson rattled his own crossbar with a header following Ben Reeves’ corner.

Then, on the half hour mark, Lyle Taylor’s inch-perfect early cross into the box enabled Grant to head home past opposition goalkeeper Marko Marosi.

Charlton’s win, following defeat away to Rochdale, sees them move into eighth and three points behind sixth-placed Accrington Stanley.

Now they must negotiate a tough midweek clash away to Walsall in a bid to rise up the League One table.

Here are five things we learned…

That’s much better from Charlton, and the response they needed

Other than some jittery moments where Doncaster tried to force Charlton’s defence into mistakes, the hosts were comfortable.

The opening exchanges were free-flowing, and both sides showed their teeth, but the two goals really took the wind out of Doncaster’s sails.

Following defeat away to Rochdale, this will boost some confidence for sure.

The score perhaps flattered Doncaster a little

There were key moments where Charlton should’ve perhaps got another one or two – goalscorers Grant and Aribo both going close on occasion.

The former’s shot inside the box following a threaded pass skimmed the post, while the latter snatched at an effort yards from Doncaster’s goal.

Missed chances aside, the performance was superb, it’s just Doncaster could’ve conceded more on another day.

A complete performance from Aribo

He was excellent – disrupting the opposition’s attacking moves with key tackles and interceptions while remaining a constant threat in attack, on the ground or in the air.

Lee Bowyer and his team-mates have previously waxed lyrical about the midfielder, quietly stating how good he is and it's not hard to see why.

Bielik showed determination to recover from a tough Rochdale trip

The Arsenal loanee was brought off after just 45 minutes during the 1-0 defeat, something which must have stung him.

He partnered with Jason Pearce at the heart of Charlton’s defence in the Doncaster win, looking comfortable and assured.

It was a learning experience for the 20-year-old, for sure.

It was good to see Marshall back

It’s not a secret he’s frustrated with his playing time but the winger contributed well during his 22-minute cameo.

The appearance against Doncaster was his first since August – roughly three months ago – and similar performances may warrant a start sometime soon.
