Charlton Athletic take on Sheffield United in U18 national final

Charlton Athletic will face Sheffield United in the U18 Professional Development League 2 play-off final on Saturday.

The tie, a midday kick-off, takes place at the Blades’ training ground.

The Addicks sealed their passage with a dramatic 3-2 win over Barnsley at The Valley last weekend.

Hamza Serrar’s side were trailing 2-0 until the closing stages before Daniel Kanu scored in the 76th minute.

Ryan Huke’s 89th-minute goal looked set to see the contest go to extra time but Nathan Asiimwe produced an injury-time headed winner.

Serrar’s side claimed the Southern section title with six matches to spare and they were 14 points clear of nearest rivals Colchester United.
