Fleetwood Town will be looking to get back to winning ways, after narrowly losing out to Burton Albion on Tuesday, as they are set to travel to Portman Road to face the Tractor Boys in another Sky Bet League One clash.

A superb first-half performance from skipper, Alex Cairns, was soiled by an undefendable goal from Burton, as the weather helped Thomas O’Connor’s corner. Fleetwood were very unfortunate to not get anything out of the game after their second-half performance caused quite a few problems for the away side.

In the game before that, Fleetwood Town played their first game since the international break and three second-half goals from Callum Johnson, Danny Andrew, and Ged Garner was enough for the home side to collect all three points against Crewe Alexandra.

Fleetwood had several great chances to take the lead in the first half but due to a couple of good saves from Will Jaaskelainen and the post, the scores remained level at half-time. Well-deserved goals from Johnson and another stunning free-kick from Andrew were the difference makers for Fleetwood in the second half, taking the game away from Crewe.

Paul Cook’s side head into the fixture at the weekend on the back of a dominant performance in their 4-0 away win over Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

Macauley Bonne carried on his goal-scoring form to break the deadlock on the day just before the half-time break, with second-half goals from Conor Chaplin, Sone Aluko, and former-Cod Wes Burns adding to the tally ahead of the final whistle to secure a comfortable win for the side.

Late drama shook the result up in the game before as Cambridge United came back from 2-0 down to draw against Ipswich at Abbey Stadium, levelling it up two minutes before the end.

Aluko netted a first-half brace in the away clash, with the game looking like it would be Ipswich’s to take but a goal from James Brophy in the 40th minute halved the deficit and a Joe Ironside strike in the final moments of the game meant the points would have to be shared on the day.

Head Coach Simon Grayson spoke to the press ahead of Fleetwood Town’s Sky Bet League One clash against Ipswich on Saturday. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“We will be respectful of the opposition, and I’m sure Paul Cook and his team will be respectful to us. They are a strong team, you only have to look at the squad they’ve got, even with the quality of some of the players who aren’t even in their 25 – it’s ridiculous the number of players they’ve got.

“They’ve had some good results recently, most notably their win over Portsmouth, which was a great result, but we will go there in good spirits knowing that we can play as good as anybody.

“We went to Rotherham and beat them 4-2, we went to MK Dons and drew 3-3, and drew 2-2 against Sunderland. They are all in the top six right now, with some even in the top two so we know we are capable of giving anybody a game."
