Fleetwood Town will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-3 League One loss in their previous game against Burton Albion.
For Fleetwood Town, the scorers were Jayden Stockley (58') and Promise Omochere (90'). Deji Oshilaja (60'), Tom Hamer (80') and Charlie Kirk (90') scored for Burton Albion.
It has been seldom in recent times where Fleetwood Town have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that Fleetwood Town have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 10 goals on the way. While that may be of interest, it remains to be seen whether that trend will persist in this match or not.
Sheffield Wednesday come into this encounter following a 1-0 League One win in the defeat of Plymouth Argyle in their previous game.
The only player to score from Sheffield Wednesday was Callum Paterson (7').
In their last half-dozen clashes, Sheffield Wednesday have amassed the sum of 12 goals. Sheffield Wednesday have also not failed to score in every single one of those games. During that period, they’ve had 2 goals go into their own net.
Team News: Fleetwood Town
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Fleetwood Town gaffer Scott Brown to contend with due to a largely intact group. Darnell Johnson (Achilles tendon rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: Sheffield Wednesday
Owing to a completely healthy squad to pick from, the Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore has zero fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.
Our thinking is that Fleetwood Town will have to work hard as a team to hit the back of the net against this Sheffield Wednesday outfit who we reckon should end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even contest with a 0-1 advantage for Sheffield Wednesday at the end of the 90.
