THE OPPOSITION
Fleetwood come into the game after a 1-0 win over Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday where Ched Evans was on target.

“If you don’t get that second goal teams can come back at you like Shrewsbury did” Head Coach Joey Barton said. “We had to defend properly, like we did at Gillingham on Saturday (when Town won 2-0), so overall I’m really pleased to come out of the week with six points and two clean sheets. When you’re only the one goal up it’s not great for your hair – mine is growing greyer by the second – but you have to give Shrewsbury some credit too.”
