‘Phenomenal’, ‘Looks a different player’ – Many Charlton fans excited by key performer in Doncaster win



Charlton Athletic beat Doncaster Rovers 1-0 last night to boost their promotion hopes and many fans have praised match-winner Ian Maatsen. 

The 19-year-old joined on loan from Chelsea in the summer and is a left-back by trade but was played in the front three against Doncaster.

Nigel Adkins’ tactical switch proved vital as it was Maatsen that scored the winning goal for the Addicks, slamming home a half-volley from close range.

Jayden Stockley had the ball in the net for a Charlton second after the half but it was ruled out for offside.

In the end, Maatsen’s goal was decisive but his general performance was impressive as well.

The teenager had 34 touches, managed two shots on target, won four of his five ground duels, and delivered two crosses (Sofascore).

His work out of possession was even more impressive, however, as he harried the Doncaster backline throughout the game – making four tackles, one interception, and one clearance.

<br /> If you don’t get at least 15/20 on this Charlton Athletic midfielder quiz, can you really call yourself a Addicks fan?

How old is Jake Forster-Caskey?

Whether the Chelsea loanee will continue to be used in the forward line or if it was just a one-off remains to be seen but he appears to have impressed fans of the south London club yesterday.
