MATCH PREVIEW | Charlton v Fleetwood Town

Charlton will be looking to continue their fine form as they return to SE7 to take on Fleetwood Town at The Valley on Tuesday evening (7pm).

The Addicks are on a hot streak of five consecutive victories and have not conceded a goal in over nine hours of football following the impressive 2-0 victory over Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Saturday - a result which has left Lee Bowyer's men fifth in the table, just three points off top spot with a game in hand.

Fleetwood, meanwhile, have been in good form themselves, with three consecutive wins under their belts and just one defeat in their last six, leaving them ninth in League One.

The Addicks are set to be without Akin Famewo after the defender limped off of Saturday's win at Fratton Park with a hamstring injury. Marcus Maddison has an outside chance of being on the bench after missing out at the weekend with an ankle complaint.

Alfie Doughty remains sidelined with his hamstring injury, while Jason Pearce could return for Saturday's FA Cup clash with Plymouth Argyle. Deji Oshilaja and Alex Gilbey are also nearing a return, but this week will come too soon for the pair.

Ben Watson and Ryan Inniss will be available once again after they sat out their one-match bans on Saturday.

Fleetwood, meanwhile, will be monitoring the fitness of midfielders Jay Matete and Jordan Rossiter.

Charlton Boss Lee Bowyer: "Fleetwood are another good side. They’re strong and physical so we’ll have to be at it. Like any game in this division, you have to be at it, otherwise you get found out.

"We’ll have to patch up the players up and go again. We’ll have Ben Watson and Ryan Inniss coming in fresh, which helps. All of our players are putting in shifts so they need that rest after Tuesday."

Fleetwood boss Joey Barton: “It’s another tough fixture for us but the mood we’re in at the moment I believe that iron sharpens iron. That’s where the strongest steel is forged – in the hottest fires.

“We go to a fellow promotion team on Tuesday night. They are in good fettle, we’re in good fettle – so we’re really, really looking forward to the test."

Charlton have met Fleetwood on only six previous occasions with the sides sharing one win apiece and the other four games resulting in draws.

All three previous meetings at The Valley have ended in draws, with the last finishing goalless in August 2018.

Christopher Pollard will be the man in the middle on Tuesday evening. He has taken charge of seven games, so far, this term, dishing out 28 yellow cards and one red.

2020/21 is his second season as an EFL official and this fixture will be his first experience of refereeing the Addicks.

He will be assisted by Geoffrey Russell and Martyn Holmes and Fourth Official, Paul Howard.

The match will be played behind closed doors and supporters are reminded to maintain social distancing guidelines and to stay away from the stadium when the match is taking place.
