Saturday 24 April 2021 17:38, UK

Peterborough kept in the running for automatic promotion with a 1-0 win over Charlton at the Valley.

The visitors had the better of the opening exchanges, and took the lead on nine minutes, when Jonson Clarke-Harris fired low from just outside the area after a Sammie Szmodics lay-off.

Charlton were forced into a change after 24 minutes, when Albie Morgan replaced the limping Diallang Jaiyesimi.

The hosts had the perfect opportunity to equalise from the penalty spot just after the half-hour mark, when Frankie Kent fouled Alex Gilbey. However, keeper Josef Bursik pulled off an excellent save from Jayden Stockley.

Charlton started off a little brighter in the second half, although they were not able to hit back.
