Sheridan: We have the players to attack Charlton

17 March 2018

Head coach John Sheridan says his side has enough creativity to cause Charlton Athletic problems at The Valley on Saturday.

Sheridan – who will take charge of his first away match in charge of the Cod Army at the weekend – spoke to the press on Thursday afternoon ahead of the team’s trip to the capital city.

With two back-to-back home draw with MK Dons and Plymouth, the Englishman is now looking to get all three points on his first away trip, and he knows his side can attack the play-off hopefuls.

“We are not going down there to try and get a point,” said Sheridan.

“The players and I know that we need to get results and that if those wins come quickly, it will make life much easier for us.

“Charlton are in a very good position to get into the play-offs, however they have had a couple of bad results recently.

“It’s important we go there with confidence, especially after the last two games as I feel we should have won both, but we do go there with belief.

“We know they have good players in the team and if we allow them time to dictate, they will punish us.”

With all the work on the training ground this week, the head coach wants to bring all the ingredients together to help stir Town up the league table.

“I am not scared to change things around depending on who we are playing.

“I haven’t been here long, but I have had time on the training pitch with the players, and they are understanding how I want to play.

“The players need to keep being brave, and as long as I see them trying to do the right things on the pitch, I will be happy.

“From what we have done, if we can mix everything together and do the right jobs, we will go out and get the all important three points.

“We have done alright in the last few weeks as a team. I know if we keep the level of performances up, the results will come.”
