FLEETWOOD TOWN

Fleetwood Town will be looking to build on their recent comeback against promotion-chasing Wycombe Wanderers in their last outing, with the game ending in a 3-3 draw at Highbury.

Second-half substitutes Joe Garner and Shayden Morris brought Fleetwood back on level terms with goals immediately after entering the action as goals from Brandon Hanlan, Adebayo Akinfenwa and Sam Vokes cancelled out Danny Andrew’s opener.

In the game before, they narrowly lost out to Ipswich Town after an injury-time goal meant they would lose the game 2-1 at Portman Road.

Callum Morton thought he had found a vital equaliser to cancel out Conor Chaplin’s opener, but Bersant Celina snatched the draw away from the visitors in the 93rd minute.

WIGAN ATHLETIC

Leam Richardson’s side are high-flying at this point in the season, currently sitting in 2nd place in the league after their 2-0 win over Burton Albion on Saturday afternoon.

They had the perfect start to the fixture, gaining the lead through a James McClean goal nine minutes in, with Jonny Smith getting sent off for the Brewers just six minutes later. Curtis Tilt added a second soon after the half-time break to see the side coat to a comfortable win.

In the game before, they hosted Lincoln City at the DW Stadium, which ended up being a tough game and a 2-1 loss for the Latics on the day.

In a game where chances were flooding in for both sides from start to end, it was the visitors who bagged the opening goal of the afternoon through a Dan N’Lundulu strike 14 minutes in. Wigan found themselves two down at the hour mark after a Timothy Eyoma goal and even though Gavin Massey pulled one back just before the end, it wasn’t enough to start a comeback.
