Away Days: Charlton Athletic

1 April 2024

Stevenage travel to The Valley for just the second time in history as the battle for the League One play-offs resumes…

An Easter weekend of football continues for Stevenage as they are met with yet another ex-Premier League club in League One. This time, it is Charlton Athletic looking to spoil the fun as the season approaches its dramatic end.

On Good Friday, Bolton Wanderers arrived at The Lamex Stadium and were held to a 0-0 draw as Stevenage worked incredibly hard to pick up a result against promotion hopefuls.

Boro have had a fantastic campaign in League One, and they have a superb opportunity to end it on a high note with just six games remaining, as they sit a point outside the play-offs.

The Opposition 

Charlton Athletic’s campaign has been below expectation as they sit 16th in the table, having won just 10 of their 40 league games this season. In fact, they only sit seven points above the relegation zone with six games to play.

Despite their disappointing campaign, the Addicks have found some form as of late, and are now nine games unbeaten, with six of those nine being draws. Nathan Jones’ managerial appointment in early February has evidently been a stroke of genius, as he has turned their fortunes around and seemingly saved their season.

On Good Friday, Charlton travelled down to Devon and earned a point against Exeter City, thanks to a late own goal to make it 1-1. Their last victory came at home to Carlisle United three weeks ago as a brace from Alfie May, as well as Daniel Kanu’s goal, secured a 3-2 victory over the struggling Cumbrians.

Alfie May is certainly the player to watch this afternoon, as he currently sits at the top of the League One goalscoring charts. The forward signed for the Addicks in the summer and has since scored an impressive 25 goals in all competitions.

The Manager 

Nathan Jones is the current Charlton boss after being appointed in February, and has lost just one game in his tenure so far. The Welshman is a former Premier League Manager, having previously been in charge of Southampton in the top-flight. He has also managed Luton Town and Stoke City in the past.

The Stadium

Charlton Athletic have played at The Valley since it opened back in 1919. The ground has a current capacity of 27,111, but it once saw far bigger crowds, with a record attendance of 75,031 being set back in 1938. The Valley is just a five-minute walk from Charlton Railway station.


Scott Oldham has been appointed Match Referee for Monday’s clash, with Declan O’Shea and Anthony Da Costa as his Assistants, and Justin Amey as Fourth Official. Oldham has dished out 100 yellow cards and six reds in 33 games so far this season.

Match Reports

Report: Charlton Athletic 0-0 Stevenage

1 April 2024

A performance that had everything but a winner in the capital…

Steve Evans made just the one change from Good Friday’s goalless draw against Bolton Wanderers, with captain Carl Piergianni returning from suspension in place of Kane Smith.

Smith and Dan Sweeney both travelled but were not included in the eighteen, with the latter missing out due to ongoing family matters – but still attended the game to show support to his teammates.

Steve Evans was also absent, but only from the touchline as he served the final game of his suspension.

Luther James-Wildin returned to his favoured right-back position after his central defence outing on Friday, with Terence Vancooten, Carl Piergianni and Dan Butler completing the back four.

Alex MacDonald and Finley Burns continued their partnership at the base of the Stevenage midfield, backing a front four of Nesta Guinness-Walker, Ben Thompson, Jordan Roberts and Jamie Reid.

A following of over a thousand Boro’ fans behind the goal roared their team on in a game that could be integral to Stevenage’s play-off push with six games to go.

Chances were few and far between for both sides in the first half, with Tennai Watson’s threatening low cross the biggest chance of the first quarter of an hour, which fortunately for Boro’, evaded everyone inside the box.

Nesta Guinness-Walker’s deep free-kick on twenty minutes was aimed at the head of Carl Piergianni but put just too much power on his delivery.

Ben Thompson picked up the game’s first yellow card for a foul on Daniel Kanu on the halfway line, before Jamie Reid’s shot on target was deemed offside by the linesman on the far side.

Charlton’s Watson was next in the referee’s book for a foul on Dan Butler on the corner of the hosts’ penalty area, but Alex MacDonald couldn’t make the most of the resulting set piece opportunity.

The teams went in level at the break, after a first half which saw Stevenage with the sole shot on goal between the two sides.

With both Oxford United and Lincoln City winning in their games elsewhere, Steve Evans freshened things up during the interval. The manager switched to two strikers up front as Nick Freeman, Louis Thompson and Vadaine Oliver were introduced for Burns, Guinness-Walker and Ben Thompson.

The change almost paid off immediately as Nick Freeman carried the ball high up the pitch on the counterattack before sliding in Dan Butler, whose cross was headed just wide of the mark by Jordan Roberts.

Taye Ashby-Hammond was forced into his first save of the game after Freddie Ladapo should have done better from close range, heading straight at the Stevenage stopper. Boro’s number one was called into action again minutes later, saving well from an audacious Alfie May effort from distance.

Just before the hour mark, Jamie Reid had a golden opportunity to put the visitors ahead. Alex MacDonald’s cross from the right was knocked down by the head of substitute Vadaine Oliver at the back post, but Jamie Reid found himself just under the ball as he headed over from inside the six-yard box.

The chances continued to come for Stevenage as the half-time changes were seeming to make a difference. Luther James-Wildin found space 25 yards from goal and tried his luck, only to fire over. Nick Freeman then found himself inside the Charlton box with the ball at his feet who could only fire wide on the half volley.

Harvey White and Kane Hemmings were introduced for Jamie Reid and Jordan Roberts with fewer with twenty minutes to play, as Stevenage continued to look for a way past this Charlton defence.

With ten minutes to go, it took a last-ditch Terence Vancooten clearance in his own six yard box to keep Charlton at bay for the time being, before down the other end Harry Isted did well to save Vadaine Oliver’s back post header.

Harry Isted would tip another good Vadaine Oliver header past the post in the final few moments, before Carl Piergianni’s header would fall wide in added time.

A positive performance which had the chances for all three, but Stevenage would have to settle for the second of two goalless draws this Easter weekend.

Att: 14,251 inc. 1,043 away.
