Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Highbury Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Fleetwood Town and Swindon Town. The Cod Army have been in a fine form of late, with the team recording four wins in the previous five league fixtures. Fleetwood did well to beat Ipswich Town on Tuesday evening, and given their fine home record in the League One, punters can surely find value in betting on the hosts.
The Robins, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table, with the team losing each of their previous four league fixtures. Swindon Town experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Gillingham, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Fleetwood’s party at Highbury Stadium. In the first half of the season Fleetwood defeated Swindon 1-0, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
