There is a huge game taking place in the Midlands tonight (May 13), as Charlton Athletic travel to Shrewsbury Town in the second leg of the Sky Bet League One Semi Final.
The Shrews won the first leg 1-0 thanks to Jon Nolan’s excellent strike at the Valley, and they head into the second leg as firm favourites to progress to the final.
This would go with the table, as the Shrews finished third in the league, narrowly missing out on automatic promotion, whilst Charlton squeezed into the Play-Offs and sixth place on the final day.
However, all hope is not lost for Charlton. If the Addicks can replicate their victory at Shrewsbury from their league match this season, then they will take their place at Wembley in the Play-Off final.
It’s a massive game for both teams, and Charlton fans have taken to Twitter ahead of the match to share their feelings on it.
Here is a look at what some of them had to say:
Charlton Athletic fans are feeling a whole mix of emotions ahead of the game.

Not all Charlton fans are feeling optimistic…
Sticking by my pediction of a draw, going 1-1. Unfortunately won’t see us in the final. Lost the tie Thursday. #cafc

Penalties are a genuine possibility ahead of this evening’s game.
Have we been practising penalties?

Charlton know that they need to win…and some supporters just can’t see that happening.
Not confident at all today #cafc
