Highbury Stadium will act as the venue on Saturday, January 7th, as Fleetwood Town prepare to kick the club’s FA Cup campaign back into gear.
After sending Ebbsfleet United packing in the competition’s last round, though, the Fishermen face an altogether more daunting test this time round.
This comes as they prepare to play host to Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers.
QPR, for obvious reason, will head into the matchup as heavy favourites to ultimately book a spot in the next round.
This comes with the capital outfit sitting a tier above their upcoming hosts in the English football pyramid.
Not only that, but, this past weekend, Neil Critchley’s men came within seconds of securing what would have proven a thoroughly impressive victory over Championship high-flyers Sheffield United.
Safe to say, then, that Saturday’s visitors to Highbury Stadium will be confident in their chances of ultimately booking a spot in the FA Cup’s 4th round for the 2nd season running.
Upcoming opponents Fleetwood, for their part, though, are too fresh off a morale-boosting result last time out.
This came upon the League One outfit recovering from a pair of successive defeats to put Shrewsbury to the sword by three goals to nil at New Meadow.
Scott Brown’s troops, as a result, have climbed to the comforts of mid-table in the League One standings.
In truth, though, it looks altogether unlikely that they will boast the required quality to get the better of a simply superior QPR outfit on Saturday evening.
