Match Preview - Fleetwood Town v Bristol Rovers

5 February 2021

The Gas look to respond as they take to the road again, to take on Fleetwood Town.

Rovers make another trip north, looking for the appropriate response following Tuesday’s heavy defeat.

Manager’s Preview…

Paul Tisdale spoke to the press on Thursday via Zoom to offer his take on the upcoming trip the Highbury Stadium.

Opposition View

Saturday’s game will mark Simon Grayson’s first match in charge of Fleetwood. The former Leeds, Blackpool and Sunderland Manager was appointed last week, replacing Joey Barton, who left in early January. David Dunne, who supported Grayson during his time at Blackpool, joins the coaching setup at Fleetwood too following his sacking in December.

Speaking ahead of the game, Simon Grayson offered some words to his squad, saying to "I don't want anyone turning around at the end of the season and saying they wished they'd done this, or wish they'd done that because life's too short for regrets, go and give it your best shot and let's see where we go with it all"

Form Guide

Fleetwood’s last win came on December 12th, with the Cod Army picking up just one win in their last ten outings. In recent weeks, Fleetwood have looked to mitigate their dip in form through staunch defending, securing goalless draws against Wigan and Northampton before losing narrowly to Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium.

Their last win at home game in November.
