Competition: League One
Market: Fleetwood Town double chance
Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport
Looking to make it back-to-back victories against Sunderland on Friday night, Fleetwood will welcome the Black Cats to Highbury this week.
Starting with the hosts, while Fleetwood might have endured a worrying run of form when opening November, Joey Barton’s men have managed to bounce back in impressive fashion. With their sights firmly set on securing another play-off finish this season, the former Newcastle midfielder saw his side put on what was a thumping performance on home soil last weekend. Managing to pick up what turned into a stellar 5-1 romp against Plymouth, Fleetwood find themselves enjoying a three-match winning run and have certainly found quite the clinical edge in front of goal. Also, shocking many as they landed a 2-1 victory against Sunderland while on EFL Trophy duties earlier in the month, there is no doubt that Friday’s hosts will be extremely confident of leaving Highbury with something to show for themselves this week.
As for the visitors, while Fleetwood might be enjoying a real November purple patch of late, the same cannot be said for a struggling Sunderland. Sacrificing their spot in the play-off positions and continuing to slide down the League One table, the Black Cats have failed to win any of their last four matchups across all competitions and they have just a pair of victories to their name over the past six weeks. Also crashing out of the FA Cup in what was a shocking fashion thanks to a 1-0 defeat against Manfield on home soil, Phil Parkinson’s men also hold what was a woeful record away at Highbury. Including that 2-1 defeat on the road earlier in the month, Sunderland have never won a matchup away at Friday’s hosts.
Bet: Fleetwood Town double chance against Sunderland 4/6 for Friday’s League One showdown @ 888sport
