Even if we tried, we couldn’t find two teams with such different forms. Bristol is the league experts in losing closely – 9 defeats in their last 10 games, 8 of which came with a 1-goal difference. Their last game was a 2-3 defeat against Reading, in a game which they led 2-0 until the latter stages of the second half. A cup tie would be the perfect place for them to win a game and improve their morale. If they don’t return to their winning ways soon, they might encounter Fleetwood in the League One next season.
That is if Fleetwood doesn’t win promotion. They’re currently sitting 6th, in the last playoff spot in the League One, and are undefeated in their last 10 games. The team is in top form at the moment and are looking for a good result against Bristol, which could take them further in the FA Cup. They encountered Bristol Twice last season in the League one, losing the away game and drawing the home one, but this season brings an entirely different story.
Bristol vs Fleetwood Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we expect to see a few goals in this game, with both teams being more than able to find the net. “Both teams to score” is the best idea here, while over 1,5 goals is the virtual certainty. Even if Fleetwood loses, we don’t expect them to lose heavily, so going Fleetwood +1 could also bring you some nice winnings.
