    Charlton reach League One play-off final

    So Charlton will go to Wembley for the first time in 21 years - and their first visit to the 'new' Wembley.

    Sunderland will stand in their way of a place in the Championship next season.

    For Doncaster, they can hold their heads high at pushing the hosts to their limit tonight after a great season.

    Charlton reach League One play-off final

    Quote Message: The atmosphere was frightening, it’s not been like that all season. I'm fortunate enough to have taken 11 penalties this season now and scored nine, so I've worked on my technique. from Lyle Taylor Charlton striker told Sky Sports

    Charlton reach League One play-off final

    Quote Message: I just went the right way and it was a poor penalty. I was lucky and that’s all there is to it. You need a bit of luck and we deserved it. One more step to go and let’s hope we can do it. from Dillon Phillips Charlton keeper told Sky Sports

    Charlton reach League One play-off final

    The 11 Charlton players are somewhere in amongst the sea of home supporters.

    Lyle Taylor is being hugged while posing for selfies - joyous scenes at The Valley.

    Just think how different it could've been had Tommy Rowe scored his penalty for Doncaster and forced sudden death...

  6. Post update

    Charlton reach League One play-off final

    There's a pitch invasion at The Valley - an explosion of happiness and relief from the Charlton fans.

    They've been put through the ringer but it's been worth it in the end.

    You've got to feel for Doncaster and John Marquis - they were the better team tonight and have been beaten in the cruelest of ways.

  7. BreakingCharlton reach the League One play-off final

    Pens: Charlton 4-3 Doncaster

    They certainly did it the hard way but Charlton have eventually seen off Doncaster to reach the League One play-off final.

    The Addicks will play Sunderland at Wembley for a place in next season's Championship.

    What a couple hours of football that was!


    Pens: Charlton 4-3 Doncaster


  9. Post update

    Pens: Charlton 4-3 Doncaster

    Tommy Rowe must score this penalty...


    Pens: Charlton 4-3 Doncaster

    Naby Sarr to win it for Charlton...

    His penalty is saved - the defender is denied by a great Marko Marosi save.

    The drama is massive!


    Pens: Charlton 4-3 Doncaster

    Advantage Charlton Athletic!

    John Marquis, Doncaster's top goalscorer, misses from 12 yards and the Addicks are one spot-kick away from Wembley...


    Pens: Charlton 4-3 Doncaster

    That's seven penalties out of seven in this shootout.

    Charlton's Joe Aribo is the latest to score, sending Marko Marosi the wrong way.


    Pens: Charlton 3-3 Doncaster

    Nobody looks like missing here, which definitely means someone's about to miss...

    Not Ali Crawford, though. He scores ruthlessly.


    Pens: Charlton 3-2 Doncaster

    Pressuer? What pressure?

    Charlton's top scorer Lyle Taylor walks up to the ball and nonchalantly fires it to the keeper's right.


    Pens: Charlton 2-2 Doncaster

    My word, how about the standard of these penalties?!

    Kieran Sadlier, who came off the bench during extra time, again goes high and into the corner.


    Pens: Charlton 2-1 Doncaster

    It's a pea-roller from Charlton's Josh Cullen but sends the Doncaster keeper the wrong way.


    Pens: Charlton 1-1 Doncaster

    You don't save those! Doncaster's player of the year Ben Whiteman finds the top corner.


    Pens: Charlton 1-0 Doncaster

    A calm, composed penalty from Chris Solly to the left of Doncaster keeper Marko Marosi.

    Good start for Charlton.

  19. Post update

    Charlton 2-3 Doncaster (4-4 agg)

    Charlton will take the first penalty - here we go then!

    Chris Solly steps up.

  20. Post update

    Charlton 2-3 Doncaster (4-4 agg)

    For what has been described as 'safety reasons', the penalties will be taken in front of the Charlton supporters.

    Two policeman were in on the discussions with the officials, which explains why that decision was made.
