Juan Castillo starts: The predicted Charlton Athletic XI to face Fleetwood on Saturday

Published

Charlton Athletic have the chance to put a four game winless run behind them in League One when they welcome Fleetwood Town to The Valley on Saturday.

The Addicks have won four, drawn one and lost one in front of The Valley faithful since Nigel Adkins left the club in late October, and they will be leaning on that record to get pushing back in the right direction against the Cod Army.

Fleetwood Town have won four of their last six, including their last two accompanied by a clean sheet and can actually leapfrog the Addicks with a victory on Saturday.

Jayden Stockley, Sam Lavelle and Jake Forster-Caskey remain sidelined while Conor Washington is being closely monitored with a chance of being involved.

Here, we are predicting three changes from the XI that snatched a last gasp point at Cheltenham Town last weekend…

The three changes are as follows: Craig MacGillivray returns for Stephen Henderson, Alex Gilbey comes back in for Albie Morgan and Juan Castillo makes his debut in the place of Adam Matthews.

Henderson put in two very lacklustre performances in MacGillivray’s absence, his first league action for over three years, Gilbey seemed to be only rested at the Jonny Rocks Stadium and Castillo offers a greater attacking threat to that of Matthews.

Quiz: Can you name which club Charlton Athletic signed these 28 defenders from?

Matthews would probably be more suited to a spot on the right side of the back three, however the performances of Sean Clare since Jackson took to the helm have made him irreplaceable.

Ben Purrington may well come back in ahead of Castillo, but with the 22-year-old announced in time to be involved it would not be a surprise to see him start.
