Black Cats have struggled against Stoke City (beating them on penalties after a goalless draw) but still bagged their fourth win in five games, with just a 1-1 draw against Oxford United also on the records. We thus feel Jack Ross’ men will be very motivated and Cod Army could see another troubled trip away from home.

Fleetwood have indeed bounced back with a 2-1 home win over Bradford last week, but they’ve failed to find the net on any of their last two trips – only holding Charlton Athletic to a goalless draw and suffering a thrashing 4-0 loss at Leicester City. This will obviously prove worrying for the travelling fans but also promises an exciting contest for the points, as a derby clash of the weekend in League One.

Sunderland vs Fleetwood Town: Head-to-head

  • This will, interestingly, be the first head-to-head encounter for the sides ever.
  • Sunderland come off as favourites to bag the points but will be in for no easy task on the day.
  • Both sides have seen a couple of very narrow clashes now behind them, which promises another such occasion here.

Sunderland vs Fleetwood Town: Prediction

We will now stick our necks out for Sunderland to build on their rock-solid streak of recent and we’ll go for a Home win at 1.90. We’ve seen them very tough to beat at this ground earlier this term and building on such records will be a must if they want to compete for a promotion back to the Championship.

However, we don’t see it coming easy and Fleetwood Town serve as great challengers. We see the visitors making it on the scoresheet as well and with that in mind, we’ll now also go for Over 2.5 goals FT at 10/11 – hoping to see an early goal and both sides in good form up front once again.
