Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Charlton will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Exeter when they take on Fleetwood in the League One round 31. The Red Robins quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Bolton, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure a top-six finish. A man to watch in the home team will be Jesuran Rak-Sakyi, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
Galvin Kilkenny should keep his place in the starting XI, while fellow January signing Michael Hector is likely to make his Charlton debut against Fleetwood. Meanwhile, the Cod Army extended their losing run to four games against Burton, and given their difficulties at the back, we predict that Charlton are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s showdown. To make things even worse for the away side, midfielder Josh Vela is banned for the match.
Highlighted Player (Jake Forster-Caskey ):
Born in Southend-on-Sea, England on April 25, 1994 Jake Forster-Caskey is a midfielder who plays for Charlton Athletic in the League One. Forster-Caskey started his both youth and senior careers at Brighton & Hove Albion and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 67 league appearances for the Seagulls first team.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons and Rotherham United, the English footballer signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Charlton Athletic in the winter of 2017. Jake quickly established himself as a first-team regular at the capital club, scoring 5 goals in 43 appearances in the 2017/2018 League One campaign.
However, he was out of contention for most of the 2018/2019 season with a serious knee injury. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and left midfielder as well.

In 1998 the club was renamed to Fleetwood Wanderers after the second reformation.
Legendary England footballer Joey Barton is considered one of the club’s most notable coaches. Barton, who was known for his incidents on the field, has been in charge since June 2, 2018. Neighbouring club Blackpool are regarded as one of Fleetwood’s main rivals. The Fishermen have built up rivalries with Morecambe and Preston North End as well.
