THREE TO WATCH - FLEETWOOD TOWN

1 November 2016

Take a look at some of the potential threats in the ranks of Tuesday's visitors to the Memorial Ground, Fleetwood Town.

DAVID BALL - Striker 

The striker is Fleetwood's top scorer this season with six goals to his name.

Starting his career at Manchester City, Ball was part of the youth side that won the 2008 final of the FA Youth Cup for City. Since leaving Manchester City, the striker has had spells at Swindon, Peterborough and Rochdale, before joining Fleetwood in July 2012.

In his 133 appearances for Fleetwood the striker has scored just over thirty goals, his last coming in their 2-1 victory over Gillingham on Saturday. 

ASHLEY HUNTER - Striker 

The attacking forward has bagged five goals in all competitions so far this season and has created a habit of scoring after making an appearance as a second-half substitute from the bench.

Hunter comes from humble beginnings, as after leaving Burton Albion in the summer of 2014, the forward dropped down the leagues and joined Northern Premier League side Ilkeston, where an impressive goal return in their youth side lead to a call-up to the first team.

Scoring five goals in eight appearances in Ilkeston's senior squad grabbed the attention of Fleetwood Town and the forward signed for the Club in January 2015.

Since joining Fleetwood Hunter has bagged five goals over the course of his eighteen months with the Trawlermen. 

ROBERT GRANT - Striker 

The striker has been in impressive form of late, netting all three of his goals this season in the month of September. 

Starting out as a trainee at Accrington Stanley, Grant made a move to Scunthorpe United in Jun 2014 and subsequently a spent loan spell at Rochdale before returning to Accrington on loan.

Since joining Fleetwood ahead of the start of the 2015/16 season the striker has scored thirteen goals in just under fifty appearances for the club.
