Sunderland appeared to had found their scoring boots when they managed a 3-0 victory over Wigan in the previous game, but the team were once again back to their struggles after a goalless draw with Charlton. Fleetwood are also very poor when it comes to forward. Stephen Crainey has seen his team, but less than a goal per game over the last few weeks.

Total goals under 2.5

This match features two teams who have been unable to make a huge impact on the offensive areas of the pitch. The lack of goals from both teams in recent weeks is a measure of the problems. Even though the reverse fixture ended up producing four goals in total, it is difficult to expect a repeat of the same especially with Fleetwood unable to hit the opposition with any creativity or threat going forward.

Both teams to score – no

Fleetwood have scored in five out of the last six games against Sunderland, but it is very likely that Alex Neil, who has significantly improved the fortunes of Sunderland since coming in February, will be out to get Sunderland a third consecutive clean sheet.
