THREE TO WATCH: FLEETWOOD TOWN

13 January 2017

Take a look at some of the potential threats in the ranks of Fleetwood Town, as Rovers make the long trip to Highbury this weekend.

DAVID BALL - Striker 

The striker is Fleetwood's joint top-scorer this season, with nine 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 over thirty goals, with his last goal coming in Fleetwood's 1-1 draw against Swindon in mid-December.

ASHLEY HUNTER - Striker 

The attacking forward has bagged nine goals in all competitions so far this season, scoring a number of times after making an appearance 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.

This season the striker is Fleetwood's joint leading goalscorer, but hasn't found the net in his last five outings. 

ROBERT GRANT - Striker 

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.

The striker netted his last goal in December for Fleetwood against Walsall and has four goals to his name this term.
