FLEETWOOD TOWN

Town head into their first game in October on the back of a seven-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, with the last outing being a thrilling 3-3 draw against MK Dons on Tuesday.

It was an end-to-end first half with four goals in the first 40 minutes as Fleetwood’s Ged Garner and the Dons’ forward Scott Twine both grabbing braces and creating further chances. Twine then completed his hat-trick ion the second half, but the action wasn’t done yet as Dan Batty came off the bench to drill one home with one minute to go.

In the game before, Town came back from behind to finish their away trip to Cambridge United 2-2 at Abbey Stadium last week. Town broke the deadlock the scoring with the first chance of the game through a James Hill header, with substitute Paddy Lane adding a second late on the level the game out after goals from Adam May and Shilow Tracey.

CHARLTON ATHLETIC

The Addicks will be looking for a turn of form as they fell to a 4-1 defeat to Bolton Wanderers in their last league fixture at The Valley on Tuesday evening.

Nigel Adkins’ side opened the scoring in that game through Josh Davison 12 minutes into the game, but a goal from Oladapo Afolayan just before the break changed the tides in the game, with second half goals from Kieran Lee and former Cod Antoni Sarcevic secured the win.

Charlton picked up a good point in the game before that as they hosted Portsmouth at home and finished the game as a 2-2 draw. Sean Clare and Davison got the goals on the day, cancelling out strikes from Ronan Curtis and Marcus Harness in the close encounter.

PRE-MATCH QUOTES: SIMON GRAYSON

Head Coach Simon Grayson spoke to the local press ahead of Fleetwood Town’s Sky Bet League One tie against Charlton Athletic at Highbury this Saturday. Here is what the gaffer had to say in his interview:

“It’s going to be a difficult game, it’s a different game to ones we have had before and it’s going to be tough because they have a new squad with a mix of experience and talent but for some reason, it isn’t happening for them at the minute.

“We have respect for Charlton, and I have respect for their manager, but we have to focus on what we need to do to win the game we know what we can do as well.

“The attitude of the players and the way they conduct themselves and how much they learn from previous games because every game is different, they take in all the information we give them and conduct themselves really well with their quality on top of it, it can take you a long way.”
