Fleetwood vs Sunderland Prediction & Match Preview

Fleetwood vs Sunderland
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 30th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Highbury Stadium (Fleetwood).

Sunderland has a slight chance to grind out a direct-promotion spot, and several things need to go right for that. But still, with their playoff participation already secured, the team has nothing to lose, and will definitely go after this objective. Moreover, even if they fall short of their aim, the team still can find solace in the fact that they have built some momentum as they enter the post-season proceedings.

For Fleetwood, the remaining two games are just mere formalities. They are out of playoff contention, and they are safe from relegation. As far as the management is concerned, this is an opportunity to thank fans for their season-long support, and a chance for the bench-warmers to get some minutes.

Fleetwood vs Sunderland Prediction

Sunderland has two objectives to attain from this tie. They have a shot to get one of the direct-promotion spots, and as such, they need to deliver a win. The second – the team needs momentum if they are to take part in the playoffs, which they most probably will.

Sunderland was unbeaten in a mammoth 26 of their last 27 matches, and in 21 of their last 22 on the road. On the other hand, Fleetwood was winless in their last five fixtures, in eight of their last ten, and in nine of their last eleven home ties.

In addition, Sunderland found the back of the net in their last nine games, and in 21 of their last 23 away ties. With the team going after great objectives, and against an uninspired and tired team, count on them to carve out an easy win.
