Match preview: Fleetwood v Wednesday

MATCH DETAILS

Fleetwood v Wednesday
Tuesday 26 April
7:45pm
Sky Bet League One
Highbury Stadium

The stakes are high this week at the top and bottom of League One.

Our game in hand over play-off rivals Plymouth and Wycombe takes place on Tuesday evening away at Fleetwood Town.

Following the Owls’ first defeat in nine on Saturday at Adams Park, Darren Moore’s side will be looking to bounce back at Highbury.

A positive result for Wednesday would see us climb back into the top six ahead of the season finale on Saturday against Portsmouth in S6.

The Pompey clash is set to be a sell-out at Hillsborough – CLICK HERE for the latest ticket details.

A win for the Owls would see us climb up to at least fifth spot but, depending on the outcome of Sunderland’s home game with Rotherham, fourth position is a possibility. A draw would put us into sixth.

Fleetwood, meanwhile, are fighting for their lives at the bottom end of the table.

Heading into the midweek clash, Stephen Crainey’s side are just outside the relegation zone on goal difference – but that could prove key in the final standings with Fleetwood at -17 and relegation rivals Gillingham on -32, both with 40 points.

Three points for the Cod Army would effectively guarantee their safety ahead of the final round of fixtures.

Wins, though, have been hard to come by for Fleetwood with only one victory in their last 19 outings.
