Tip Reasoning

  • Fleetwood games average a league-high 3.7 total goals per-match this season.
  • Sixteen of Fleetwood’s 20 league games this term produced over 2.5 total goals.
  • There were 16 goals scored across Gillingham’s last five away league games (3.2 on average).

Fleetwood to scramble out of the drop zone

Following a simply dreadful 11 game run without a win, Fleetwood romped to a 3-0 victory over Bolton during midweek. That victory was their first since mid-October and puts them in a position to escape the relegation zone with victory and favourable results elsewhere.

If Fleetwood Town were a car, the strike force would resemble a roaring Mustang as they are the joint-sixth highest scorers in League One. However, their defence would not be dissimilar to a joyridden Golf, after shipping the joint-second highest amount of goals in the league.

The combination of a lethal attack and a sloppy defence means that Fleetwood’s games saw more overall goals than any other side in the Division. Put that strike force against a Gillingham side who concede 1.5 goals per league match on average and we could be in for another entertaining affair.

Just one point separates these sides despite Gillingham scoring only half the amount of goals as Fleetwood. As such, I predict this will be another entertaining encounter that Fleetwood could win 3-1, with over 2.5 total goals being the main prediction.
