The Black Cats will be aiming to pick up their third straight league win on Tuesday night as they play host to Fleetwood.

Sunderland are just hanging on to a top-six place at the moment, but are under pressure in a tight race.

Fleetwood are down in the bottom half of the table, having struggled for consistency with one win in their last six.

Sunderland Preview – Black Cats to take advantage at home

Back to back league successes over Doncaster and Burton have gotten Sunderland’s promotion push in League One back on track.

That has been seven goals they have tallied in their last two league fixtures as well.

The Black Cats have hit the back of the net at least twice in four of their last five league fixtures.

At home, this season Sunderland have produced a W5 D5 L4 record and are unbeaten in three at the Stadium Of Light (W2 D1).

There is a quote of 4/5 odds-on on the home win in this fixture for football betting* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT February 21st, 2021).

A big positive for Sunderland is that they have scored in each of their last ten league fixtures (and in each of their last six at home).

From their seven games at home this season against teams in the bottom half of the table, Sunderland are only W2 D4 L1.

It’s not the greatest home season for them.

But perhaps that burst of recent scoring form and back to back wins will lift them.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds recorded 21:35 GMT February 21st, 2021)


The last two meetings between Sunderland and Fleetwood at the Stadium Of Light have ended in a 1-1 draw.

In the correct score market for football betting, the shortest-priced option is the Sunderland 1-0 at 9/2* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT February 21st, 2021).

Four of the five home wins for the Black Cats in this campaign have been by a 1 goal margin.

They have scored 61% of their home goals in the first period of matches.


Fleetwood Preview – Can Fleetwood find some form?

Fleetwood have won just one game since a victory over Swindon back on December 12th last year.

That’s a W1 D7 L4 record from them since then in League One action.

In the match outright for Tuesday night’s fixture there is a quote of 7/2 for a Fleetwood victory* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT February 21st, 2021).

But they have been struggling for goals in their recent form.

The Cod Army have failed to hit the back of the net five of their last seven league fixtures.

Sunderland to win to nil as a football betting option, therefore, jumps to mind at 13/8* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT February 21st, 2021).

The away form of Fleetwood needs to be examined in a little more details.

They have failed to win any of their last six away games, losing three of their last four.

Again we have to go back to the issue of them not finding the night.

Fleetwood have failed to score in their last three away games (D1 L2).

Fleetwood have averaged under a goal per game across the course of the season away from home.

They haven’t been all that bad in defence to be fair, with a clean sheet in almost a third of road games.

There are actually only three teams with a better current defensive record in this season’s League One than Fleetwood’s.

But they have the third-worst away record

Seven of the eight league defeats that Fleetwood have suffered have been by a margin of one goal.

They have been level at the break in eight of their fourteen road games.


Sunderland vs Fleetwood Betting Advice

We think that a narrow home win for the Black Cats is likely to be the order of the day in this League One fixture.

Fleetwood are not posing much of a threat in front of goal and only two teams have earned fewer away points than they have.

So the Sunderland to win to nil option does come into play at 13/8* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT February 21st, 2021).


Key Facts – Sunderland vs Fleetwood Betting Tip

  • Sunderland have won their last two league games
  • Fleetwood have won only once since mid-December
  • Fleetwood have the third-best defensive record in the league


For some longer odds in football betting the Sunderland 1-0 correct score is on the radar at 9/4* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT February 21st, 2021).

We can’t see anything bigger than that, as the visiting Cod Army had been good in defence.

And it is not as if Sunderland’s home form has been red hot to push for more.
