Hereford vs Fleetwood Town: Preview and Predictions

Hereford vs Fleetwood Town
FA Cup
Date: 14th December 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Edgar Street Athletic Ground (Hereford).

A brave display at Highbury earned Hereford a rematch of their second-round tie in the FA Cup against Fleetwood Town.

The visitors still hold the favourite tag due to the obvious gulf in quality, but they’ll have anything but an easy job at crowded Edgar Street Athletic Ground where the locals will give anything to see their team extend the FA Cup fairytale.


The Bulls compete in the seventh tier of the English football where they currently hold the fifth place after a poor kick off to the campaign.

The team led by Peter Beadle comes into this high on confidence after winning four on the trot in Non-League Premier where they notched as many as 13 goals in last three matches.

Fleetwood Town

Cod Army will hardly join the promotional contest in this term of League One as they currently sit at the disappointing 14th place with 27 points in 21 matches.

The German manager Uwe Rosler announced high ambitions in the FA Cup and we believe he’ll send out the best lineup he has in order to pass the stern Hereford test this Thursday.

Hereford vs Fleetwood Town: Head to head

Fleetwood insisted on ball possession in their first ever tie with Hereford, but the attacking line showed lack of inspiration as the team only managed to net one past the seventh-tier outfit.

It was generally an open affair where Hereford could have easily scored the second goal as well, but they had the ball cleared off the line just before the break.

Hereford vs Fleetwood Town: Prediction

The hosts did not park the bus in the first leg at Highbury and we don’t expect them to do so in the rematch in front of the home crowd either.

Their amazing spell off form in the final third in the most recent fixtures guarantees a goal-packed contest, but we still have to see Rosler and his men as favourites to advance into the third round.

Hereford vs Fleetwood Town: Bet Tips

The main bet is Fleetwood Town to win & BTTS at the odds of 3.40.

Over 2.5 goals FT is a must-take pick at 1.80.
