Sunderland look to home strength to get through a tough home game

The home form of Sunderland is W10 D6 L1 this season in League One. The Black Cats are currently moving along on a three-match winning streak on home soil and they have been absolutely watertight at the back.

Sunderland have not conceded in any of their last five League One home fixtures and they are unbeaten in their last eight there. Home and away combined, Sunderland have won nine of their last eleven league outings.

Each of their last six league wins have been with a clean sheet. They have only conceded in one of their last nine league games (home and away combined) in league action.

It has been an astonishing run of form by them and after so many struggles over the first half of the season, they are well in the promotion picture now.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 21:06 GMT, Sunday, 23rd February)

Sunderland have produced an average of 1.88 goals per home game this season and then you swing back to their defensive record. The Black Cats have conceded just 10 goals in their 17 home fixtures this season.

There has been a clean sheet from them in 47% of their home games.

Nine of Sunderland’s sixteen league wins this season have come by a one-goal margin. The big trend with their goal-scoring has been the first half of the goals.

21 of the 32 goals that the Mackems have scored at the Stadium of Light have been in the first half of games.


Can Fleetwood survive the tough test?

Fleetwood are in equally impressive form, which makes this such a good contest. It is a five-match winning streak that the Cod Army are on in the division.

Their most recent three wins in that positive streak of form happened against Wycombe, Peterborough and Portsmouth, all teams sitting inside the top seven with them.

Away from home Fleetwood are at W5 D3 L6 this season in league action and they have won their last two on the road.

Since a 1-0 loss at Blackpool back on December 7th, Fleetwood have lost one game (W6 D7 L1). But it has only been since the start of February that they have found their winning consistency.

Before this run of five straight leagues wins the Cod Army had won one of ten league games (home and away).

Each of their last five league wins have all been by a one-goal margin. Five of their seven league defeats for the campaign have been by a one-goal margin as well.

Fleetwood earned a point in a 1-1 home draw with Sunderland back on January 1st 2020. This will only be the fourth game between the two clubs.

The Cod Army will be defending an unbeaten record against Sunderland, having gone W1 D2 from their three previous meetings with them. Both teams have scored in each of the three previous meetings.


Sunderland vs Fleetwood Betting Advice

Here are two teams in superb form and it’s hard to find a crack in either of them. The draw in the match outright may just be the way to swing for this one as both are going to be so desperate not to lose this one in what is a big top-six fixture.

Fleetwood have handled themselves so well recently against teams up in the top seven. But their last two wins against such opposition happened on home soil. Their away form has improved, but still, it is nothing spectacular and they are facing a very mean Sunderland defence.


Key Facts – Sunderland vs Fleetwood Betting Tip

  • Sunderland have taken a clean sheet in 8 of their last 9 league games
  • Sunderland are on a four-match league winning streak
  • Fleetwood have won their last five matches in a row (all by a one-goal margin)


The Black Cats haven’t looked like cracking defensively and if they play to those strengths on the night, they should be able to keep the visitors at arm’s length.

Winning streaks are on the line here, but more importantly, avoiding defeat is going to be more prominent the longer this one drags on even. Draw.
