What goes down meets what comes up

Just nine years ago Fleetwood Town were in the Northern Premier League and Charlton were in the Premier League, but the two sides meet at the Highbury Stadium tomorrow.

Conor McLaughlin will come back into Fleetwood's team to face Charlton after international duty. The full-back impressed in the Czech Republic on Sunday as Northern Ireland drew 0-0 and he will be restored to a side that has kept three successive clean sheets.

Lee Novak could return to action for Charlton after the striker resumed training following a broken hand. Skipper Johnnie Jackson is a doubt but winger Ricky Holmes is back in contention after recovering from a bruised foot.

Lancashire referee Darren Handley will see that no quarter is offered to the southern softies. The PE teacher was added to the Football League list in 2014/15 after twenty years of hard graft in local leagues, starting with the Bolton Boys League.

Odds: Fleetwood Town 13/8, Draw 23/10, Charlton 13/8. Could go one of three ways then.
