Jayden Stockley might have left us for an undisclosed fee just over a week ago, but he's likely to be back at The Valley on Saturday afternoon when Fleetwood's Cod Army sail into town.

Charlton Athletic and Fleetwood Town went in opposite directions in the transfer market during the winter shopping window. While we cut costs, they spent big. Last weekend we won, while they lost but this Saturday should give us an indication of the state both clubs are in, now the dust of the transfer whirlwinds have settled.

For us, takeover rumours have trumped transfers in recent months, but for Fleetwood there has been a serious effort to fund their way out of the relegation places. The side managed by former Celtic and Aberdeen star Scott Brown brought in three late signings at the end of January; their new No 12 Jayden Stockley, another semi-prolific striker Jack Marriott from Peterborough United and Corrie Ndaba on loan from Ipswich Town.

Interestingly though, Brown himself has been the subject of speculation about taking over as manager at Hibernians. Once upon a time the prospect of the Scottish Premier League might have seemed more appetising than a third division relegation dogfight but maybe not any more. By signing strikers such as Marriott and Stockley, proven goal scorers at the upper levels of this division, they have made a real statement of intent.

But they're not yet out of that relegation scrap which for a while it seemed we might also get sucked into. Now that our form has picked up, combined with last Saturday's vital win against Exeter, we are probably going to avoid the so-called dogfight. Fleetwood though have everything to fight for and that makes them potentially dangerous.

Stockley got off the mark for his new club with a goal just before the hour in last week's 2-3 defeat to Burton for whom another ex-Addick Charlie Kirk popped up to score the winner.  That means he's not coming to The Valley with the pressure of opening his account but at the same time probably is coming back with a point to prove.

One more whimsical fact about our opponents is that they seem to be the Australia of League One. Back in the World Cup, the names of the Aussie players drew a lot of attention because of their distinctive first names that sometimes could as easily have been surnames - Mitchell Duke, Riley McGree, Jackson Irvine and Cameron Devlin amongst them.

Fleetwood more than match that with Harrison Holgate, Phoenix Patterson, a young Irish lad called Promise and then Luton Town loanee, Admiral Muskwe who sounds as if he might be as much at home in maritime Greenwich as Jayden Stockley!

Let's hope their new No 12 and his team mates are sailing back empty handed on Saturday afternoon though.
