Joey Barton’s side travel away to a Rochdale side whom have only managed to pick up one point in their opening three matches.
Trainiee sports scientist at Fleewood Town Nathan Morgan-Astle said: “This is a good time to start a push up the table after a poor opening three game.”
Winning only one of their first three fixtures, the latest defeat coming at home to AFC Wimbledon can be taken with a pinch of salt as arguably the Fisherman deserved to win he game but they just couldn’t make their pressure count.
Nathan also added: “Rochdale are struggling at the moment and don’t look like they could offer much threat against us.”
Fleetwood have looked average at best so far, one of their only shining lights has been Callum Camps who has four goals in all competitions from midfield and has looked a great threat so expect him to be amongst the action on Saturday.
Rochdale, sit in 23rd place and are really struggling to score goals, they have only managed scored one in the three matches that they have played so far.
scoring goals has been the overall problem with The Dale are their defensive woes. They can create chances but putting them in the back of the net is a different matter.
Fleetwood are still monitoring the fitness of Striker Paddy Madden as he could still be out after a knock he received in the game at Peterborough.
For Rochdale Ryan McLaughlin and Stephen Humphrys will be given fitness checks having not played since their goalless draw at Portsmouth.
The last time these teams met Fleetwood ran out 3-2 winners away at Rochdale, and the men in red will look to replicate that result this time out.
