Coyle: We travel with confidence to Charlton

16 March 2018

Fleetwood defender Lewie Coyle spoke to the media at Poolfoot Farm ahead of the match against Charlton Athletic this weekend.

Coyle and his side travel to London on Saturday to face Karl Robinson’s Addicks, looking to build on the unbeaten run under new head coach John Sheridan.

The on-loan Leeds United defender knows the importance of the match, and feels going back to basics could be key in the last eleven games.

“Sometimes you can overcomplicate things,” said Coyle.

“At the end of the day, there are two teams out on the pitch and it’s an even playing field. We just have to go out there this weekend and do our stuff.

“We have known throughout this season what we have it in us as a squad, and it is a shame where we are in the league.

“I honestly don’t think it reflects on the team that we have here at Fleetwood.

“At the end of the day, we are where we are and we have to come through this and stay up.”

The 22-year-old also spoke about the club’s away performances this season and how they can go to The Valley and be confident about picking up three points.

He added: “Every game for us now is one that we are looking to win.

“Whether we are at home or away, we will approach games in the same way as we need the points. We won’t sit back; we will be going for the win.

“Against Charlton, both teams will be trying to score goals, but it’s up to us be tight at the back when they are attacking, but going forward we will be creating chances and much more.

“The manager has come in and given us the right balance. Football is a simple game and I know it’s a cliché, but we want to keep the ball out of our net, put the ball in the other end.

“He won’t overcomplicate things and since he arrived, he has given us freedom to go out and play.

“I am really looking forward to this weekend’s match against Charlton.”
