Ched Evans picked up the man of the match award after his goal sank Charlton at Highbury. But how did the rest of the pack get on?

Barely anything to do. Another quiet day at the office for the Town shot-stopper.
Back on the right side of defence, back with the captaincy and back to a clean sheet. Lead the team well. His decision to swap ends to protect Cairns from the sun and it paid dividends. Partnership with Souttar looked solid.

You would not have guessed it was his first ever EFL start. A solid and composed performance. A bit Cian Bolger-esque. His height gives Town an advantage in both boxes and he looks like he has been partnered with Eastham all term.
Playing out of position at right-back and impressed again. He limped off but appears to just be an ankle role. The returning Lewie Coyle now has a battle on his hands.
Bounced back from the Scunthorpe game with another good shift. Needs to play to those levels consistently now.
Like Holt work-rate was there but still want him to bring more to the table.
Again he puts the miles in but still lacking in end product.
Showing his Championship class at the moment. Some delightful balls into the mix and has found consistency in that midfield role.
Two big chances in the game but neither on target. He needs to believe in himself and the goals will flow. Good to see him getting in the positions just needs to finish the job.
A tad off the boil. He was not as sharp as he normally is in the box. But his telepathic understanding with Evans vital for the goal as his knock down teed-up the forward.
What a week for Ched. After deadline day drama he was in Fleetwood Town's starting XI and on the scoresheet... again. A man of the match performance and should have ended the day with a hat-trick. Proved he is committed to the cause.
Hunter on for Nadesan 61: Made an impact from the off. His pressing key to Evans' first chance and his ball to Madden for the goal was delightful. Showed his ingenuity.
Sowerby on for Holt 61: Like Hunter made an impact off the bench on his return from a loan spell at Carlisle. Like Hunter he is now pushing for a start.
Biggins on for Burns 83 6 He was bright and busy.
