Steve Cotterill’s side return to the Meadow following two back-to-back away draws against Gillingham (0-0) and AFC Wimbledon (1-1). Salop are currently 17th in the league table and could potentially leapfrog Cheltenham Town in 16th with a win on Saturday.

Saturday’s visitors are currently two places below Salop in 19th and are currently on a run of three games without a win. Since interim manager Stephen Crainey was appointed permanent manager in the middle of December, Fleetwood have only lost twice with one of them losses coming at the hand of Salop on Boxing Day when Steve Cotterill’s side travelled to Lancashire coming away with all three points after an impressive 3-0 win thanks to goals from, Ryan Bowman, Josh Vela and Daniel Udoh.

One to Watch: Danny Andrew

Despite being a left-back, Danny Andrew has been arguably Fleetwood’s most creative and effective player this season. He is the club second top goal scorer (six) and has the second most assists (six) for the club in 30 appearances in all competitions. He is a deadly crosser of the ball and will be a real threat to Salop on Saturday if he isn’t closed down enough.
