FLEETWOOD TOWN

Fleetwood sit 4th in Sky Bet League One following an emphatic 4-1 win against Burton at the weekend. A victory against the Sky Blues would see Joey Barton’s men register four wins in their last five games.

Paddy Madden sits third in the League One goal-scoring charts on nine goals following his hat trick against the Brewers at the weekend. The striker also has a 75 minutes per goal ratio, the second best in the league.

There are no new injury concerns for Town’s head coach, but he will be without captain Paul Coutts after the midfielder picked up his 5th yellow card of the season on Saturday.

COVENTRY CITY

Coventry sit 6th in the table, and despite a promising start to the season, they are without a win in four. Their last match was a goalless draw away to MK Dons, and a win for the Cod Army would see Mark Robins’ side potentially drop out of the play-off zone.

The Sky Blues’ leading goal scorer Matt Godden could miss the game following a groin injury. The 28-year-old striker sat out of their last fixture and looks unlikely to feature in Wednesday’s game.

Starting centre-back Kyle McFadzean will be available for selection again following his red card against Rotherham United.

LAST TIME WE MET

The last time Fleetwood and Coventry City met, former Town striker Jordy Hiwula scored late in the first half for the Sky Blues in a 2-1 win towards the end of the 2018/19 season.

Ched Evans scored just past the half hour mark, but it wasn’t enough for the three points.

ONE TO WATCH: JORDY HIWULA

With joint top scorer Matt Godden looking unlikely to start through injury, striker Jordy Hiwula will be their biggest threat. The Sky Blues’ forward has registered four goals this season, whilst assisting two goal.

The 24-year-old started his career in Manchester City’s youth setup, and after a successful loan spell at Walsall, he signed permanently for Huddersfield Town in 2015.

Whilst with the West-Yorkshire side, the forward enjoyed various loan spells at Wigan, Walsall and Bradford before subsequently joining Fleetwood for the 2017/18 season.

After registering eight goals in 43 games for the Cod Army, he earned himself a permanent transfer to Mark Robins’ side, where he has managed 14 goals from 52 appearances.

WHAT JOEY BARTON HAD TO SAY:

"They're a really good team. They were good last year and Mark Robins has done a great job with how he has got them playing. Coventry are similar to us in many ways, bringing younger players through. 

"They have been a club that have produced some great players over a long period of time. They play in the right way and are tough opponents. I am not surprised where they sit this season and how they have started off this season."

Match Reports

Report: Coventry come from behind to claim the points after Madden opener

23 October 2019

Sponsored by

Paddy Madden’s early first-half goal was cancelled out by two second half goals as Fleetwood Town fell to a 2-1 defeat to Coventry City on Wednesday night.

Madden gave the Cod Army an early lead after tapping home his 10th league goal of the season, before two goals in under ten minutes condemned Joey Barton’s side to a 2-1 loss at St. Andrew’s.

Less than 10 minutes into the first half, Town got off to the perfect start when Josh Morris whipped in a cross which fell to the feet of Ched Evans, whose delicate effort hit the post and rolled to Madden, who was left with little to do in front of goal.

Moments later, Fleetwood were unlucky not to be two ahead when Evans fired in a free-kick from 25 yards, which the Sky Blues keeper could only parry to Madden. The forward squared it to Jack Sowerby in the centre of the box, but his scuffed effort was collected comfortably by the goalkeeper.

After a decent spell of possession for Coventry, the away side countered with Evans. who delivered a fantastic cross into Kyle Dempsey, whose powerful header on goal forced a superb diving save from Marko Marosi.

Soon after, Dempsey played a through-ball into Madden, but his chipped effort wasn’t enough to trouble the keeper.

Right on the stroke of half time, Morris continued to cause the home side problems when he found the feet of Madden at the back post. And with a delightful cross, the Town forward couldn’t quite get on the end of it.

Early in the second half, Morris set himself through down the right wing with a great touch after capitalising on Dominic Hyam slipping, but his cross failed to find the intended target.

Following the continued pressure from Town, Andrew found himself free down the left wing before laying off Evans on the edge of the box, but his effort again was blocked by the Coventry defender.

The second half lacked any clear chances for either side, but the Sky Blues started to pressure the Town back line with their changes they made at the interval.

And on the hour mark, the home side’s persistence paid off. Jimmy Dunne did well to get his body in the way to stop an effort destined for a goal, but Bakayoko was in the right place at the right time to power home to bring his side level.

And it wasn’t long before Coventry took the lead when a clumsy challenge from Dunne gave the referee no choice but to award a penalty. Alex Carins dived the right way, however Westbrooke’s penalty was too powerful for him to reach.

In the closing stages of the game, the momentum began to change for Joey Barton’s side as Town looked to find an equaliser.

In the last minute of regular time, Coyle picked out Evans with a great cross into the box, but the forward saw his effort fly over the crossbar.

Town will now look to bounce back on Saturday afternoon as they welcome MK Dons to Highbury Stadium.

Fleetwood XI: Cairns (GK), Coyle ©, Dunne, Souttar, Andrew, Rossiter, Morris (73’), Dempsey, Sowerby (73’), Evans, Madden (60’).

Unused Subs: Crellin, Biggins, Clarke, Southam

Coventry City XI: Marosi, Dabo, Rose, Hyam, McCallum, Westbrooke, Walsh (57’), Shipley (46’), O’Hare, Bakayoko, Hiwula (46’)
