Match Preview | Wanderers v Fleetwood Town

Fleetwood Town match preview

It’s been a solid start to Wanderers’ campaign with three wins out of three in all competitions as they prepare to host Fleetwood Town at the Toughsheet Community Stadium on Tuesday night.

Buoyed by a convincing win on the road at Cheltenham on Saturday, Ian Evatt’s men will certainly not be letting complacency slip in as they aim for a second home league win.

Fleetwood stand in Wanderers’ way on Tuesday night as the Whites aim to score maximum points under the lights in Sky Bet League One action.

Manager quotes

Ian Evatt:

“We’re in good spirits. We don’t need or want any distractions or sideshows.

“All we need is laser focus on the next challenge and the next opportunity and that’s tonight. We know we’re going to have to probably step up again on our performances so far.

“Fleetwood are a dangerous team with a lot of power and athleticism. We know that they’re wounded from the weekend and the start of the season. They’ve not had the best results, but the performances have probably warranted more than that.”

Ian Evatt

Fleetwood Manager Scott Brown (speaking after Saturday’s defeat):

“For us, we all take it on the chin we’ll all take responsibility. When it’s a good performance we’ll all take credit for it, but when it’s a poor performance we’ve all got to accept responsibility.

We need to learn from that and take full responsibility from today. You have to have that desire, and you have to have that work rate to make sure that you outrun your opponent and sometimes it's as simple as that.”

Team News

Nothing new to report from the Wanderers’ camp with a clean bill of health from the Cheltenham game.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Eoin Toal have stepped up their recovery with action for the B Team on Tuesday afternoon.

Form guide

A difficult away fixture to newly promoted Carlisle United awaited the Cod Army at the beginning of the campaign where Scott Brown’s side earned a hard-fought point thanks to Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu’s well struck effort from distance.

Port Vale knocked Fleetwood out of the Carabao Cup after an entraining 3-2 cup tie before a Cambridge ran out 2-0 winners at Highbury Stadium  on Saturday. Scott Brown will be eager to get his side up and running in the win column of the league table.

As for Wanderers, Dion Charles’ brace against Cheltenham on Saturday, as well as an own goal, blew the home side away within the first half.

Ian Evatt’s men currently sit on six points out of six with two clean sheets so far to match.
