Another Sunday game this one, off the back of booking our place at Wembley last night.

Worried about this one, as I see it as a potential slip up. If Fleetwood come and play for a point, I think they may get what they wish for, as we struggle to break teams down.

Early goal for us key in this one.

Won't be easy, Fleetwood's away form hasn't been great over the season but they've picked up in their last few games.
Still think we will come out on top, 2-0 City

Uh...what....we're still playing in the league? Seems ages ago...........

Anyhoo...I expect 3 points here. No disrespect to Fleetwood but this is the type of game that we can't afford to drop points in.

Back to keeping clean sheets I think - 2-0

Decent side Fleetwood took 2 last minute goals in the home game to get a win and in the away game to get a draw. They are very difficult to break down as we found out, but I can't see City losing this maybe a draw;)

Think they'll struggle to play much worse than yesterday so should be a win.

All these February games are a concern though, we'll be playing Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday 5 weeks in a row so I hope the Sheff Utd game gets postponed.

In terms of team selection, no idea :dk: The third midfielder to partner Smith and Freeman is anyone's guess.

Saville looked good against West Ham, would chuck him in again.

As long as we don't lose, we stay in the automatic promotion spots... so I'd settle for that.

Although for safety, a close-as 1-0 victory at least gives us breathing space going into the MK Dons game next weekend....

We'll be playing against a side who'll probably put all 11 behind the ball for large parts of the game.

We can break them.

3-1 to us.

Early goal and we'll be fine. Longer the game goes on chasing a goal the more tiredness from the past week will come into play.

Was quite impressed with Fleetwood up there in September.

Comfortable home win.

What is the reason for the Sunday kick off - weren't NLBR away yesterday?

Freeman and JET rested by the looks of it. Bit of a risky move that

Not comfortable with Freeman being rested, he and Korey in CM really make us tick over well.

Does seem odd. Why rest him for a vital league game rather than the formality that was thursday night? Maybe he picked up a knock or something.

Someone I know works for Fleetwood, doesn't think they'll get anything from today with us just being too strong

A lot of people felt the same way at our ground which ended 3-3

Any streams for today ?

Looks like a side that lacks creativity without Freeman and JET, seems strange to rest them both for the same game.

0-0 incoming.

That was poor from us, hopefully different being at our place.

Can't find one so would assume no

Being honest I don't see us not scoring, reckon we'll get at least one, just a case of whether Fleetwood can score/if so how many
