Charlton Athletic are urging fans to arrive early for tomorrow night’s League One play-off semi-final second leg against Doncaster Rovers.
Just over 1,000 extra seats in the Jimmy Seed Stand – the away end – were made available on Wednesday for Addicks fans.
The sellout means the Addicks will be backed by the largest home support at The Valley since 2012.
It means there will be more than 24,000 Charlton supporters at the match.
The Addicks have a 2-1 lead from the first leg, Lyle Taylor and Joe Aribo both scored at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Charlton said in a statement: “Supporters who are attending Friday evening’s match are reminded to leave plenty of time to enter the ground due to the higher-than-usual attendance and are also urged to avoid bringing bags, if possible, to ease security checks upon entrance.”
