Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Highbury Stadium pits together Fleetwood and Stevenage, the two teams with entirely different ambitions for the 2023/2024 League One campaign. The Cod Army have a chance to escape the relegation zone and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the Boro. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be pacey winger Phoenix Patterson, who produced a brilliant performance in the crushing of Exeter.
Stevenage, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the English third tier, only three points behind automatic promotion berth. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Stevenage are more of a team than Fleetwood, who have been struggling in the first half of the season. The Boro head coach Steve Evans is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Lincoln at the weekend.
Highlighted Team (Fleetwood):
Known for their attacking style of play, Fleetwood Town are a professional football club based in Fletwood, Lancashire. The Fishermen play their home matches at Highbury Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 5,327 (2,672 seated), with the team wearing red and white shirts in home matches.
On the other hand, Fleetwood footballers are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels. The original club was founded back in 1908 under the name of Fleetwood FC and 69 years later they were re-established as Fleetwood Town F.C. In 1998 the club was renamed to Fleetwood Wanderers after the second reformation.
Legendary England footballer Joey Barton is considered one of the club’s most notable coaches. Barton, who was known for his incidents on the field, has been in charge since June 2, 2018. Neighbouring club Blackpool are regarded as one of Fleetwood’s main rivals. The Fishermen have built up rivalries with Morecambe and Preston North End as well.
