Views from the Match Thread ahead of kick-off:
clanford: “Another very difficult game. Looking at Scotimps stats it should be a very attacking game with a draw unlikely. That said a point would be very welcome but to take 3 from the scouse git would be very satisfying. CUI.”
JT_LCFC: “Still very well-financed judging by Fleetwoods activity yesterday. You would expect them to be challenging the playoffs again.
Would take a point leading us into Tuesday night.”
Warrington Imp: “Difficult match I think Fleetwood will be top 6 so a good yardstick on how we are doing, take your hand off for a point but think we may lose 3-1.”
SIMJON: “Yep a real test today. Fleetwood blew Hull away last weekend, especially.in the second half. Home win is 7/5 which is very good odds in my opinion. If they pay out!”
