Half-Time Report: Dale Stephens strike gives Charlton Athletic the lead

Dale Stephens strikes late on to give Charlton Athletic the half-time lead against Doncaster Rovers.

Dale Stephens's late goal has given Charlton Athletic the lead against Doncaster Rovers at the break this evening.

Simon Church had one of the best chances of the half after just two minutes, but the striker failed to convert when Jordan Cousins had played him with a ball over the top.

Yann Kermogrant sent a free kick sailing over the bar from around 30 yards after 20 minutes, but the Frenchman came a lot closer three minutes later when he hit the post in open play.

Donny keeper Ross Turnbull was forced into a good save from Johnnie Jackson after 25 minutes.

The visitors responded minutes later through Billy Paynter, but his header was off target as they struggled to get a foot hold on proceedings.

However, with the half petering out, Stephens struck a volley to put his side a goal up at the interval.
