MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Fleetwood Town

Charlton will be determined to record three points on Saturday afternoon when they host Fleetwood Town at The Valley (3pm).

The Addicks were denied a point by a controversial refereeing decision against Peterborough United in midweek and when they run out in SE7 at the weekend they will want to put a victory on the board.

In Fleetwood, they will face a team in form. Joey Barton’s Cod Army thrashed Scunthorpe United 5-0 in midweek, having been four goals in front after just 29 minutes.

Fleetwood sit sixth in the early-season table but a victory for the Addicks could see them leapfrog them and, hopefully, kick-start a good run of form.

Lee Bowyer could welcome Igor Vetokele back into the squad for Saturday’s game, with the striker having recovered from a foot injury. The match is likely to come too soon for Jason Pearce, Ben Reeves and Tariqe Fosu and the trio are all set to re-join full training next week.

Billy Clarke is targeting an October return and Jake Forster-Caskey will miss all of 2018/19 with his ACL knee injury.

For Fleetwood, Cian Bolger and Kyle Dempsey are both doubts after missing the midweek victory over Scunthorpe United.

Charlton caretaker boss Lee Bowyer: “Each game we’re getting better and better in possession, so I’m not worried at all. Sooner or later something is going to have to drop for us in the opposing box. I know you make your own luck but there is going to come a stage where we end up thumping a team and then we’ll kick on.”

Fleetwood Manager Joey Barton: “Lee Bowyer is the manager and I’ve played against him a few times. If his side are anything like him, then we know we are in for a real tough encounter. We head there full of confidence, wanting to give a good account of ourselves.”

The Addicks and Fleetwood have met four times in the past and Charlton have yet to taste to defeat against the Cod Army.

Three of those matches have ended level, including both Valley encounters, while the other game ended in a 3-1 victory for the south-east Londoners.

For 2018/19's match previews, we will be dipping into the Valley Pass archive to look back on a previous encounter against Charlton's opponents. This time, we look back to last season and the Addicks’ trip to Fleetwood where Tariqe Fosu took centre stage...
