O'Carroll calls on players to use Fleetwood victory as motivation going forward

22 November 2021

First-team coach Diarmuid O’Carroll says that it is no surprise that Charlton Athletic are climbing the table after their slow start to this season’s Sky Bet League One campaign.

The Addicks parted company with former manager Nigel Adkins on the back of a poor start, but recent wins have seen them move up the league standings and O’Carroll is aware of the quality that they have within their ranks. 

He said: “They have a lot of quality within their squad, the money they have behind them, the size of the club and the support that they have, they are a big club. 

“I think there was twenty-odd-thousand at their game the other day, we have gone away and watched their games, reviewed them and we know that they are a good side. 

“You look at them and they should be in the top-half of the table, we will go out there and compete, and on our day we are a very good side as well.” 

The Shrimps were victorious on their last outing against Fleetwood Town and O’Carroll has called on the players to use that result as a springboard to further success. 

He added: “They have had a real bounce since the new manager took over, I don’t think he’s been given the job yet - I don’t know what they are waiting on but it will be a tough game. 

“Every game is tough, it is such a cliche to say every game is tough but it is, we have showed that we can cut it against some of the best teams, home and away. 

“We are looking at this game as an opportunity to get some more points on the board, put a run of results together, build momentum and get ourselves up the league.”
