Fleetwood Town welcome Wycombe to the Highbury Stadium this Saturday after a busy week in League One. The two sides sit in different halves of the table with Wycombe needing a win to close in on the Play-offs and Fleetwood needing a win to get out of the relegation zone.
Fleetwood currently sit 21st in League one with two wins, two draws, six losses and eight points in ten games.
In their last five games in all competitions, Fleetwood have three wins, a draw and a loss. In the Group stage of the Football League Trophy Fleetwood took on Tranmere. After Dan Pike’s red card in the 72nd minute, Fleetwood converted a penalty through Jayden Stockley and then doubled their lead through Phoenix Patterson for a 2 - 0 win. However, Fleetwood were then on the losing side against Oxford. Stanley Mills, Billy Bodin and Kyle Edwards all scored in the 3 - 0 win for Oxford where Fleetwood couldn’t manage a single shot on goal.
The game against Burton saw all of the action in the span of two minutes as Joe Powell opened the scoring for Burton and Junior Quitirna quickly equalised as the game finished 1 - 1. Both Fleetwood and Leyton Orient had a man sent off in that game with Carl Johnston and Ethan Galbraith both sent off in the ninth minute of added time. However, Jack Marriott had scored early in the second half to give Fleetwood the 1 - 0 win.
Their last outing was against Cheltenham on Tuesday. Quitirna and Marriott were the two names on the scoresheet in the 2 - 0 win for Fleetwood as Cheltenham were down to ten men with Curtis Davies sent off.
Wycombe, on the other hand, sit ninth. In ten games, Wycombe have five wins, one draw and five losses, leaving them on 16 points.
In their last five games in all competitions, Wycombe have three wins and two losses. Sam Vokes and Brandon Hanlan both scored in the 2 - 0 win over Blackpool despite having only 36% of the possession. In the Group stage of the Football League Trophy Wycombe faced Crystal Palace’s U21 team. Luke Leahy converted his penalty in the 92nd minute to grab a late 1 - 0 win over Palace.
The loss came against Charlton. Miles Leaburn opened the scoring for Charlton and Freddie Potts equalised in the second half. However, Slobodan Tedic and Corey Blackett-Taylor both scored late on to grab the 3 - 1 win for Charlton. Jokull Andresson was sent off early on for Carlisle and Leahy converted another penalty along with another goal from Vokes for a 2 - 0 win for Wycombe.
The last time out for Wycombe was the midweek fixture against Portsmouth. Josh Scowen opened the scoring for Wycombe but goals from Colby Bishop and Conor Shaughnessy gave Portsmouth the 2 - 1 win.
Fleetwood and Wycombe have met just 15 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming as recently as 2011. Wycombe have the better record in this fixture with six wins in comparison to Fleetwood’s three wins and the three draws.
