Bet: Pressley's men 9/5 to beat the Sky Blues on Saturday

8 October 2015

Midfielder Bobby Grant 3/1 to score within 90 minutes

This weekend sees new Fleetwood Town manager Steven Pressley take charge for the first time with former employers Coventry City the visitors to Highbury Stadium.

Fleetwood go into the game off the back of a win in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, as they came from behind to beat Shrewsbury Town 2-1 with substitutes Ash Hunter and Bobby Grant getting on the scoresheet.

The Sky Blues travel to the Fylde Coast themselves having beaten Shrewsbury recently, winning 3-0 at the Ricoh Arena last weekend prior to going out of the JPT on penalties to Yeovil Town in midweek.

The last time the two sides met back in February, it was the visitors who took the points as they won 2-0 with both goals coming late on, and a repeat result this weekend is priced at 10/1.

In fact, it is Tony Mowbray’s side who go into the game as the bookies favourites priced at 7/5, while Town are not too far behind at 9/5 with the draw available at 12/5.

Town midfielder Grant, who scored a stoppage time winner against his former side Shrewsbury to make it three goals in four games, will be hoping to add to that and is priced at 3/1 to score within the 90 minutes.

As for Coventry, they will be without Newcastle United loanee Adam Armstrong who is away on international duty with the England Under-19s.

The youngster has scored eight of their 19 league goals this season, and in his place Marc-Antoine Fortune and Marcus Tudgay will look to get the Sky Blues’ goals, both priced at 2/1 to score anytime.

If goals are what you expect to see, you could back the “Full Time Result and Both Teams to Score” market, and Town are at 9/2 to win with both teams getting on the scoresheet while Coventry are 7/2.

The home side are priced 15/2 to score two or more goals in the opening 45 minutes on Saturday.
