Sunderland vs Fleetwood Town Betting Tips: Form Guide

Black Cats Looking Good

Sunderland’s Scottish manager Jack Ross has enjoyed a good spell in charge of the club since joining from St Mirren in the close season. The Black Cats have lost just one game this season, a defeat at home to Sheffield Wednesday in the first round of the League Cup. They have won four and drawn two of the six league games so far, and already look like being one of the contenders for promotion to the Championship in 2018/19. Ross, of course, took St Mirren to promotion to the Scottish Premiership last season, so he knows what it takes for a team to win promotion.

Ross also has had his options for team selection improved this week, with defenders Glenn Loovens and Adam Matthews returning to training after injury. Tom Flanagan, Jerome Sinclair and Charlie Wyke, who were all involved in Tuesday night’s Checkatrade Trophy tie against Stoke Under-21s, are also in contention for places in the line-up. Aiden McGeady and Duncan Watmore are not yet ready to return to first team action, though.

This will be the first time in their history that Sunderland have ever faced Fleetwood Town in a competitive game.

Wearside Visit Holds No Fear For Fleetwood

Fleetwood Town are now managed by the often controversial former Manchester City, Burnley and Rangers midfielder Joey Barton, which will certainly pique the interest of many Sunderland fans. Barton has settled in well so far, and his team sits in sixth place in the League One table. If they can sustain their early season form, they may have a decent chance of making the play-offs, something which would be a real achievement for Barton in his first management job.

The Cod Army are unbeaten away from home this season, something that will give Barton and his men confidence before they face one of this division’s biggest sides. Barton will also have a full squad to chose from for the game at Sunderland, with the only absentee being winger Wes Burns. Burns is suspended for three games after being given a red card in last week’s win over Bradford City.

If you’re looking for Sunderland vs Fleetwood Town betting tips for today, then it is worth noting that Barton’s team have kept clean sheets in their last three away games. That suggests that the Black Cats will need to be sharp to pierce the Lancashire outfit’s defence.

Sunderland vs Fleetwood Town Preview: Recent Meetings

It is impossible to look back on any previous encounters between these teams, as there have never been any. This the first meeting of Sunderland and Fleetwood in a competitive fixture of any kind, which makes it an historic occasion. Sunderland were relegated from the Championship last season, after an appalling run of bad campaigns that had seen them plunge down the league pyramid in rapid style. The Black Cats were relegated from the Premier League in 2016/17, finishing bottom of the table under the management of David Moyes. The following season, they were relegated from the Championship.

Fleetwood reached League One, the highest level of competition in their history as a club, in 2014. Despite some struggles, and a few managerial changes, they have managed to avoid relegation and stay in League One, a real achievement for a club of their size.

Sunderland vs Fleetwood Town Prediction: Exciting Score Draw

This game looks like being an intriguing encounter. Sunderland are a massive club to be playing down in League One, while Joey Barton, the Fleetwood manager, had an interesting career as a player, and is an often controversial figure. His Sunderland counterpart, Jack Ross, is looking to take his career up a level after the success he enjoyed in Scotland. The prediction is that this game will be an exciting score draw. Neither team is easy to beat, so we think that 1-1 looks a likely outcome.
