The Cod Army's most recent match saw them come from two goals behind to salvage a point on the road. Scott Brown's men made the trip to Lincoln City on Saturday 27 August for a League One clash, and left it late to score the equaliser at the LNER Stadium. Goals from Paddy Lane and Ged Garner earned Fleetwood a point, helping them extend their unbeaten run to four matches in the league.

In Cup competitions this season, Fleetwood beat Wigan Athletic in the first round of the Carabao Cup 1-0 and that set up a tie against Premier League side, Everton at Highbury Stadium. The match finished 1-0 to Frank Lampard's men, with the Cods taking them all the way in a fantastic performance on home soil.
