Charlton Athletic face a significant challenge to reach the Sky Bet Championship after losing 1-0 at home to Shrewsbury Town in the semi-final first leg of their play-off tie.

Jon Nolan’s 20-yard thunderbolt in the second half ensured a smash and grab victory for the visitors at The Valley and Charlton Athletic will now need to be more prolific in front of goal themselves in the second leg in Shropshire on Sunday.

The Addicks had won three of their last four home games going into the match and fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment at their side’s first leg play-off defeat against The Shrews.
