Fleetwood Town Match Preview

31 December 2018

Marcus Braddock previews the New Year Day game at home to Fleetwood To

Our first game of 2019 sees us welcome Fleetwood Town, managed by Joey Barton. Barton is in his first management post after a playing career that took him to Manchester City, Newcastle United and Rangers. His team have had a mixed collection results that have left them in 11th place with 33 points from nine wins, six draws and ten defeats. Their last five games in the league have seen them win twice and lose three times conceding nine goals and scoring seven. Their last away win in League One was a 4-0 thumping of Doncaster in early October but they have beaten Guiseley and Alfreton away in the F.A. Cup since then.

Top Scorer

Paddy Madden with 13 in all competitions.  The 28-year-old striker joined the Cod Army this time last year for a fee in the region of £150,000. Since signing, the Irish goalscorer has scored 16 League goals and three in cup competitions. Before joining Fleetwood he spent four years with Scunthorpe, scoring 160 times from 196 appearances in all competitions. Before that he had a rather prolific two spells with Yeovil scoring nine times in fifteen league games on loan from Carlisle and then thirteen from 29 games as a permanent signing.



Clean Sheets

Four at home and four on the road.


Ashley Hunter 9
Paddy Madden 5
Ched Evans 4

Away Stats (league)

Fleetwood have earned an average of 0.92 points per away game this season and have scored an average of 1.17 goals per game.

They concede a relatively miserly 1.08 goals per away game which is better then the League One average of 1.17.

Their best period of the game in away games has been the second fifteen minutes of the first half with five scored and 1 conceded. The first half of away games is the most productive for Fleetwood away from home with 71% of their goals. The second half sees them score less and concede more with 62% of their goals conceded.

Referee - Alan Young from Cambridgeshire. Games this season:  12. Yellow cards: 88. Red cards: 3.

Team News

Midfielder Dean Marney will miss out after his sending off at home to Portsmouth.

Shaun Whalley is out with a hamstring injury and Charlie Colkett has returned to Chelsea.


After a really positive result at Sunderland we dropped a little in the league and could do with three points to keep us out of immediate danger. Our home form and Fleetwood's away form suggest that the points may go to the home team. However, the Cod Army will want to put their 5-2 defeat at home to Portsmouth out of their minds and I expect a reaction to that in the way Fleetwood play. They have the players to do exactly that but if we keep the same level as we did at the Stadium of Light, we can get the result we all want.

The game came to an end with the score 0-0 at the final whistle. Neither team were able to take lead and secure all three points.

A good defensive display by the Town back four ensured the visitors were unable to break the Shrews down.


Team News:

Sam Ricketts made two changes to Town’s line up to face Fleetwood Town. Alex Gilliead and Lenell John-Lewis were both restored to the bench as Aaron Amadi-Holloway and Fejiri Okenabirhie both returned to the starting 11.

First Half:

Town came into this game looking to build on the solid start that sparked in Sunderland. The first 15 minutes had both teams fighting for the ball but Town were the side looking most comfortable.

Town were having half chances but nothing to cause the Cod Army back four too much stress. Aaron Amadi-Holloway looked sharp and constantly looked to pressurise the visitors back line. His link up play with Fejiri Okenabirhie also got off to a positive start.

James Bolton received a yellow card in the 30th minute for a challenge on Paddy Madden down the left wing.

Town had a great chance in the 33rd minute to break the deadlock in the game. A counter-attack sparked by great interception from Bolton saw Josh Laurent in a few yards of space on the edge of the Fleetwood box, but the midfielders effort was lashed wide of the post.

The half drew to a close with goalmouth action limited. Neither team were able to convincingly beat the defence to get an effort on goal. Town looked good in possession and never looked troubled with or without the ball.

Second Half:

Town started the second half with a more attacking impetus. Bolton came close to notching a goal just three minutes into the half. The defender found himself just inside the box to let off a shot, but his effort dragged just wide of post.

Town were putting the visitors under pressure as the half progressed towards the last 30 minutes. Second-half substitutions have Town that extra energy up top and made Fleetwood look uncomfortable – especially on the wings.

Alex Gilliead came agonisingly close to giving Town the lead in the 67th minute after a winding run. His long-range effort was driven just wide of the post.

Town were awarded a free-kick after the winger was tackled as he let off his shot but Ryan Haynes saw his effort hit the wall.

Luke Waterfall was given a yellow card in the 81st minute for a challenge in the middle of the park.

Steve Arnold had to make a critical save as the half was drawing to a close. Fleetwood saw the ball fall to them in the box, which put Wes Burns through on goal. Arnold cam storming from his line and averted any danger by grabbing a hold of the ball.

The game came to an end with the scores the same as they started. Neither team were able to take the lead and the points were shared.
