Ahead of Tuesday’s Emirates FA Cup first-round replay against Mansfield Town at The Valley, we have dipped into the Valley Pass archive to get fans in the mood for the clash.
Charlton have recorded first-round SE7 victories in the last two seasons to progress into round two and they, along with two a bit more memorable encounters, feature in the below list.
Charlton 3-1 Truro City (2017)
The Addicks’ most recent home match in the first round of the FA Cup saw them come out victorious against Truro City last season. A brace from Ben Reeves was added to by a Mark Marshall goal to see Charlton progress into the second round.
Charlton 3-1 Scunthorpe United (2016)
Another first-round match saw Charlton face Scunthorpe United, with the Addicks coming out on top at The Valley once more. Addick hero and now Assistant Manager Johnnie Jackson added to a superb opener from Ademola Lookman to put the south-east Londoners in control before Lookman notched his second of the game after the break.
Coventry City 2-3 Charlton (2000)
An FA Cup classic was played out in January 2000, with Charlton coming back from two goals down to progress into the sixth round. Despite being two goals down just 21 minutes in, the Addicks were not fazed by their Premier League opponents. Goals from John Robinson and Shaun Newton ensured the scores were level at half-time and, after a spell of dominance, Andy Hunt made the hosts pay by scoring at the death to see Charlton fight on in the cup.
Charlton 1-0 Burnley (1947 newsreel)
It wouldn’t be right to preview and FA Cup match without looking back on the time Charlton lifted the trophy. After losing the final the previous year, a 1-0 victory over Burnley saw the Addicks lift the cup in front of a 99,000 crowd at Wembley Stadium. Chris Duffy’s first-time strike from inside the box in extra time was enough to bring the cup to SE7 for the first and only time in the club’s history.
