FLEETWOOD TOWN​

The Cod Army come back to Highbury after their 0-0 draw away at Bristol Rovers on Saturday. It was a pleasing performance from Joey Barton’s team, but had a scare when the Pirates were awarded a penalty late on.​

Alex Cairns saved Jonson Clarke-Harris’ penalty from 12 yards, meaning the goalkeeper has now kept 50 clean sheets in the EFL for Town.

Barton’s side currently sit 11th in the league, and are only four points off the play-off places. With two back to back home games for Fleetwood, can they bounce back into the top six.​

Glenn Whelan could make his first appearance at Highbury after his debut against Bristol Rovers. There are no new injury concerns with a near enough full squad for Barton to choose from.​ Jordan Rossiter is still ruled out for the season.

COVENTRY CITY​

The visitors to Highbury on Tuesday night sit fourth in the league table, with their last outing being in the Emirates FA Cup. They hosted Birmingham City at their temporary ground, with a replay to take place in the upcoming weeks.​

In the Sky Blues’ last league fixture, they picked up all three points away at Doncaster Rovers thanks to a Jordan Shipley goal after 26 minutes. Coventry are unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions, looking to make it nine by picking up a result on Tuesday.​

ONE TO WATCH – MATT GODDEN​

One for Town fans to keep an eye out for on Tuesday night is forward, Matt Godden. The English striker has ten goals to his name in 24 appearances, with his last goals resulting in 4-1 win over Tranmere, where he scored a hat-trick.​ His second treble in as many games after scoring three against Wycombe Wanderers in the previous match.

The 28-year-old began his career at Scunthorpe United, with the forward being loaned out to Ebbsfleet, Dartmouth and Tamworth before making a permanent move to Ebbsfleet in July 2014.​

Stevenage came knocking on the forwards’ door two-years later, and he scored 35 goals in 80 appearances for The Boro – which resulted in League One side Peterborough United come calling.​

Match Reports

Report: Town held at home by in-form Covent

28 January 2020

Fleetwood Town and Coventry City played out a goalless draw on Tuesday night in blustery conditions at Highbury Stadium.

Paddy Madden and Ched Evans had good chances for the hosts, with the visitors going close through Fankaty Dabo – who made Town keeper Alex Cairns pull off a great save down to his left hand side.

The game did not take long to get going, and it was Coventry who had the games opening chance.

Liam Kelly sent a good ball through to Matt Gooden who hit the post with his shot, but the flag went up for offside.

Soon after, Town had their first shot at goal. Left back Danny Andrew made the most of a mistake by Dabo, but he could not keep his strike on target as he saw it go just wide of the mark.

Before the first quarter of an hour, Fleetwood had another chance to open the scoring. Madden’s eye lit up as the ball approached him, but the Irishman failed to keep his strike down on the Sky Blues goal.

For a short while following Town’s attack, the match evened itself out with most of the play being in the middle of the park and no clear chances to note.

But as the match approached half time, there were key chances for both sides. First it was the visitors, as Jordan Shipley found himself with space in front of him and took a strike from distance, but the shot was well held by Cairns.

Next came two opportunities fell for Town. Lewie Coyle crossed the ball into the penalty area where Evans was waiting, but the striker’s well placed header stung the hands of Marko Maroši, before the danger was cleared.

Soon after, Madden had an excellent chance to nod his side into the lead before the break. Coyle again was the provider, but his glancing header went wide.

The second half took a while to get going, and the crowd inside Highbury had to wait until the 54th minute until the next chance.

That chance did fall for Jack Sowerby, who received the ball from Madden on the edge of the box, but the midfielder couldn’t keep his shot on target.

Moments later, Coventry really should have been ahead but for a fantastic stop from Cairns. The keeper – who kept his 50th EFL clean sheet on Saturday at Bristol Rovers – denied Biamou as his opportunity surely should have given Mark Robins’ side the lead.

As Town get grinding out chances, one fell to the feet of Evans who after a delicious ball through by Madden, forced a good save out of Maroši, who was put under instant pressure from Madden on the follow up.

A goalmouth scramble inside the Coventry penalty caused carnage, and when the ball fell for Morris on the 18-yard line, he struck the ball well only for a blue shirt to get a block on his effort.

The drama continued into the latter stages, and the referee had a decision to make as a Coventry man went down inside the area. The man in the middle dismissed the penalty claims and the match finished goalless.

That is now two clean sheets on the bounce for Joey Barton’s side, and the Cod Army will now prepare for the visit of Doncaster Rovers to Highbury Stadium on Saturday 1 February.

Town XI: Cairns (GK), Coyle, Souttar, Connolly, Andrew, Whelan, Biggins (Morris 12’), Sowerby, Dempsey (Eastham 61’), Madden (McAleny 73’), Evans.
