Team News: Fleetwood Town
Joe Garner (Back trouble) and Brad Halliday (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be available for Fleetwood Town gaffer Simon Grayson.
Team News: Sunderland
Sunderland boss Lee Johnson has not got a full squad to pick from. Jordan Willis (Patella rupture) and Arbenit Xhemajli (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) will not be playing here.
We’re thinking that Fleetwood Town could well find it tough to be putting a goal past this Sunderland outfit who we think will likely be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore predicting a very even match with a 0-1 winning score for Sunderland when the full-time whistle blows.
There should be little in it.
