Sunderland and Fleetwood are 2 of the candidates competing for promotion tickets in the English 2nd League (League One) this season. Suderland is currently ranked 4th on the League One standings with 57 points after 32 matches, Fleetwood ranked 6th with 54 points after 31 matches. Top team Rotherham United got 60 points after 32 matches.

It can be seen that the chances of Sunderland and Fleetwood are equal now. If you win the next match, Fleetwood will equalize the score gap with the opponent. However, it is clear that the immediate advantage belongs to "Black Cats" when they are playing at home of Light.

Sunderland's recent form is also extremely stable. Last 4 rounds in League One, the Black Cat won without conceding any time. At home, Sunderland won 5, drew 1 in the last 6 matches, scored 14 goals and only once had to concede a goal. Meanwhile, Fleetwood still plays quite well on the away field.

In the previous 14 away games in League One, Fleetwood won only 4 matches, the rest were 3 draws and 7 defeats. The fact that +1/2 was accepted under Asian handicap in the coming trip also soon showed that Fleetwood was not trusted by investors. By 13 recent away matches, Fleetwood has only been accepted 3 times at +1/4.

Fleetwood's playstyle was more offensive, but in the upcoming match they lost their main striker Ched Evans due to suspension. Ched Evans has scored 8 goals and created 2 more after 25 games this season for Fleetwood. Before the effective defense of Sunderland, Fleetwood was really difficult to promise to make a story.
