Fleetwood Town midfielder Harvey Macadam spoke to press after Fleetwood Town’s 1-1 draw with Charlton Athletic on Saturday afternoon.

Town showed some great signs in the game and took the lead in the first half through Callum Morton – with Harvey getting the all-important assist.

Charlton managed to salvage a point with Miles Leaburn’s second half goal, but it’s another point on the board for Scott Brown’s men.

Here is what Macadam had to say:

On the game as a whole and his assist…

“I think it’s two points dropped; going up [a goal] early, it was disappointing not to get all three points. In the first half we were brilliant and then they changed their shape, and I don’t know what happened, maybe momentum has gone in their favour.

“I think in the first half we had numerous chances to kill them [Charlton] off and we should be taking those chances. That then allowed them to get back into it. We’ll learn and make sure we take all three points next time.

“With the goal, I’ve just put it in an area, and I’ve just thought put it in the six-yard box and hoping one of our men get on the end of it and that’s what happened with Callum [Morton] getting the goal.”

On playing in Scott Brown’s system…

“He [Scott Brown] has a wealth of experience so he’s trying to pass that onto me and work with me on my positioning. Today he’s put me on the wing and told me to use my pace and defensive positioning but overall, he’s been brilliant with me.

“Defensively we’re sound. When the gaffer came in he made a big point in making us more solid because last season we were leaking in two or three goals a game. The gaffer has come in and we look more solid at the back which gives us a good foundation.”

On turning performances into wins…

“The new manager has come in and he’s got his new ideas and we want to get more points on the board. I think performances wise we’ve been brilliant, so we just need to turn the performances we are putting in, into three points.”
