Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Following a 2-2 draw with Wycombe, Fleetwood Town will look to start a new winning run in the League One when they take on Port Vale on Saturday afternoon. The Cod Army are eyeing their first league win since November 11, 2023 and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field in the round 31 clash. Defender Harry Boyes limped off with injury in the last league fixture, with Ryan Broom likely to step up. Ireland forward Promise Omochere serves a one-game ban.
The Valiants, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Portsmouth, but given their anything but good form in late January, we are tempted to put our money on the rock-bottom side. To make things even worse for the visitors, Uganda forward Uche Ikpeazu is likely to miss the game through injury.
Highlighted Team (Port Vale):
Nicknamed the Valiants, Port Vale are a professional club that compete in the League Two. Port Vale welcome their rivals at Vale Park, and they wear white and black kit when playing in front of home fans. Yellow, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Valiants’ home ground, which was built in 1950, can hold up to 49,768 people. Championship side Stoke City are seen as one of the club’s fiercest rivals, but their rivalry is pretty healthy. The two teams first met on December 2, 1882, with the Potters emerging triumphant (1-0).
The Valiants maintain a rivalry with fellow League 2 club Crewe Alexandra as well. Speaking of the club’s titles, it has to be noted that Port Vale have won Football League Trophy on two occasions (1993, 2001). A 9-1 win over Chesterfield from September 24, 1932 is the club’s biggest triumph.
