MATCH PREVIEW | Fleetwood Town v Charlton


The Addicks are back on the road on Saturday as they take on Fleetwood Town at Highbury Stadium (3pm KO BST).

Charlton travel north on the back of a 1-1 draw with Forest Green Rovers at The Valley in midweek.


The Addicks will be without the services of centre-back Ryan Inniss, who will serve a one-match ban having been shown two yellow cards in midweek.

Summer signing Mandela Egbo is nearing a return and, earlier this week, Ben Garner confirmed additional unnamed players have also returned to training.

Fleetwood boss Scott Brown reported no fresh injury concerns in his pre-game press conference, though defender Darnell Johnson (Achilles) remains sidelined.


Fleetwood come into this weekend's encounter on the back of an impressive 1-0 victory at Peterborough United on Tuesday, stretching their unbeaten run to seven games in the third tier.


That midweek win leaves Scott Brown's sat 12th in Sky Bet League One with 11 points from their eight games so far this term. The Cod Army's only league defeat of the season came on the opening day at newly-promoted Port Vale.


Charlton and Fleetwood have squared off on 10 previous occasions with the Addicks winning four, the Cod Army one and the remaining five clashes resulting in draws.

The last meeting between the two sides came at The Valley in January as second-half strikes from academy graduates Mason Burstow and Albie Morgan earned the Addicks a 2-0 win.


Charlton's last trip to Highbury Stadium, meanwhile, resulted in a 2-1 triumph. Danny Andrew levelled for Fleetwood early in the second period to cancel out Jonathan Leko's opener, but Jayden Stockley headed home 21 minutes from time to secure victory for the visitors.


Simon Mather will be the man in the middle on Saturday afternoon. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in March 2022 - a 2-1 reverse at Accrington Stanley.

Mather will be assisted by Conor Brown and Graeme Fyvie, while Martin Woods is the Fourth Official.


The Addicks will be sporting their blue third kit in Lancashire.
