MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Fleetwood Town

Charlton will be desperate to return to winning ways when they host Fleetwood Town at The Valley on Saturday afternoon (3pm). 

The Addicks have seen their play-off bid derailed in recent weeks, losing their last three games, but Karl Robinson's men still only sit five points outside of the top six and have at least one match in hand on the majority of their promotion rivals. 

Tuesday's reverse at Blackpool saw a dip in the team's performance and is something that those in red are intent on putting right. 

In Fleetwood, the Addicks' weekend test will see them come up against a side who have a new Manager at the helm. Experienced boss John Sheridan took the reins at Highbury Stadium at the end of February and has so far presided over a pair of draws in his two matches in charge. 

The second of those came against play-off chasing Plymouth Argyle on Saturday afternoon and a win could move the south-east Londoners to within two points of sixth place.

Charlton will be without Chris Solly and Lewis Page, who both picked up injuries at Blackpool on Tuesday night. They join a lengthy injury list that also includes Ahmed Kashi, Billy Clarke, Dillon Phillips, Stephy Mavididi and Jay Dasilva. 

Jason Pearce and Sullay Kaikiai are both doubts but the latter could return, having missed the midweek clash at Blackpool with a toe injury. 

Fleetwood's only injury concern in on-loan Preston defender Kevin O'Connor, who has an ankle complaint. 

Charlton and Fleetwood have only met three times in the past, and the Addicks have yet to taste defeat against the Cod Army.

The clubs' first two meetings came last season - and both ended in draws - and earlier this season Tariqe Fosu hit a hat-trick as Charlton earned a 3-1 win at Highbury Stadium.
