Fleetwood vs Blackpool: Prediction
After consecutive defeats the team in 13th position are shattered mentally. Blackpool poses a big challenge for the side from Lancashire.
The travelling side are always better when they played against each other. The fact that Fleetwood has never won will give the visitors a mental edge over them.
Home form also is not convincing for Cod Army.
On the contrary the visitors had to face easy opponents in the last two games but the confidence it gives to the players is massive. In that view the visitors are possible winners this Saturday.
