U18 PLAY-OFF FINAL PREVIEW | Barnsley v Charlton


Charlton's U18s take on Barnsley in the Professional Development League 2 play-off final on Saturday – and fans can watch all of the action from Oakwell live on CharltonTV (12pm KO BST).

Jason Pearce’s side booked their place in a third successive final with a resounding 5-1 victory over Sheffield United at The Valley last Friday and will now be targeting their first national title since 2018.

The young Addicks took their goal tally to a staggering 89 for the season against the Blades, while Barnsley have scored 82 goals this term.

The Tykes reached the final thanks to Emmaisa Nzondo last-minute winner over Millwall, meaning the PDL2-South and PDL2-North champions will go toe-to-toe for the right to be crowned national champions.
