21 November 2016

The Gas welcome the Addicks to the Memorial Stadium on Tuesday evening, the last time the sides met in 2011, Gavin Williams scored a late equaliser as Bristol Rovers came from two goals down to draw with nine-man Charlton.

Paul Benson nodded the visitors in front early on, before Kyel Reid fired in to double the lead.

The Addicks had Reid sent off for a poor challenge on James Tunnicliffe, before Jose Semedo was also dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Wayne Brown pulled one back for Rovers from close range, before Williams lashed home to clinch a point.

Top scorer Will Hoskins almost won it for Rovers but he fired his shot into the ground and it bounced over the bar.
