FLEETWOOD TOWN - WE'VE MET BEFORE

26 November 2019

Sunday's Emirates FA Cup second round tie at The People's Pension Stadium will be only our fifth meeting with Fleetwood Town.

Two took place in our Conference-winning season in 2010-11 and the others in League One in 2014-15. 

Of the four games, Reds have won two, drawn one and suffered just one defeat. That came the last time we faced the Cod Army at Highbury early in 2015 when Dean Saunders' side slipped to a 1-0 defeat.

Earlier that season, when John Gregory was manager, a goal from Izale McLeod (being congratulated by his team-mates in the main picture) had given us a 1-0 win over Fleetwood.

Our first meeting in September 2010 ended in a 1-1 draw with Craig McAllister on target for Crawley.

The following March we secured a vital 2-1 win at Fleetwood against a side pushing, like ourselves, for promotion. Our goals that day came from Richard Brodie and Matt Tubbs.
