Fleetwood Town 1 Charlton Athletic 0
Compare and contrast how we all feel now to how we felt before the Peterborough game a week ago. Thanks for everything Roland.
It sounded poor today. I was very disappointed to see Bowyer start with just Hackett-Fairchild up top on his own. Especially with the 6ft 6 Harry Souttar making his debut on loan for them.
Our forward line issues speak for themselves, but Bow really needs to work out what to do in the middle. Lots of skillful players, some neat passers, but no cutting edge. A couple are also too similar and none of those starting today can be relied upon for goals. The team needs pace and width. Both Fosu and Marshall can still play a big part. Igor at least sounded lively when he came on. What would we give for him to come back and do the business?
Josh Parker came on for his debut, but Bauer getting sent off at the end was the final kick in the teeth after another odious week under Duchatelet.
We haven’t played well for 3 games though, plenty for Bowyer and Jacko to do this week, regroup both on the training field and in the motivational department.
Addicks at Highbury: Doctor Kish;
Bow: “We’re just going to have to forget and move on as quick as possible, and we will.”
Elsewhere: Luton are looking unstoppable after winning again, this time 3-0 at Shrewsbury. They are 6 points clear at the top. Sunderland beat Wimbledon 1-0, Barnsley beat Scunthorpe 2-0, Portsmouth and Doncaster drew 1-1 and Plymouth won at Peterborough.
