Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Match Time & Date:
All eyes will be on Highbury Stadium when Fleetwood Town and Sunderland take on each other in the League One derby. Fleetwood did not make a flying start to the season, but their recent form is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. The Fishermen impressed in back-to-back wins over Bristol Rovers (4-1) and Plymouth (5-1) and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play.
Fleetwood did well to eliminate Sunderland in the FA Cup earlier in November, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. The Black Cats were on the verge of beating Doncaster on the road in their last league match, but the hosts eventually scored the equalizer in the dying minutes of the game. Since the promotion-chasing visitors are eager to return to winning ways, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score.
