Sunderland form and stats

Sunderland have collected 20 points from their League One home games so far after 5-5-4.

A good away victory last time out for Sunderland, who won 3-0 against Burton Albion (placed 24th). Preceding that game was the home draw versus Lincoln City (after extra-time, 5-3 on penalties) that ended 1-1.

The betting market estimate that the home team has about 55-60% chance of winning this match. There could be betting value if you think differently, so to help you here are the stats from Sunderland's earlier matches at home being 55%-60% favourite: Played twelve games, won five matches, drawn three and lost four.

There will be little rest for Sunderland after this match as they are travelling to Crewe Alexandra for a League One game in only four days.

Sunderland are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 18 goals in 14 games. Sunderland have conceded 16 in these home matches.

Fleetwood Town form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Fleetwood Town so far with only 12 points returning home. The records show 3-3-8 (win-draw-lose). Fleetwood has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

Fleetwood played 1-1 against Charlton Athletic in their previous match. A 0-1 defeat away at Plymouth Argyle before that.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Fleetwood playing away, we found one game. Results were zero away wins, zero draws and one home win.

After this away game Fleetwood return home for a League One game against Accrington Stanley. That game is only four sleeps after this.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Fleetwood as they have only managed to score 13 times from 14 away games in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 0 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. As opposed to that, Fleetwood Town have seen the ball go into their own net 16 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

Sunderland and Fleetwood Town have met before this season: Fleetwood Town - Sunderland 1-1. Sunderland-Fleetwood Town H2H statistics last six meetings regardless of arena: Sunderland zero wins, Fleetwood Town two wins, four draws. two of these six matches had three or more goals (over 2,5).
