Heading into the final straight of the season in the battle for survival, Fleetwood Town found themselves in a dismal run of form, having failed to pick up a single win from a span of 13 games before a layoff due to the international break.
With that run culminating in five straight defeats and a disappointing stalemate with basement side Doncaster Rovers, the Highbury outfit sat in real danger of dropping down to League Two, with just 34 points from 38 outings, only just above the bottom four as a result.
However, Stephen Crainey‘s side were able to end their drought and post a much-needed win on Saturday, defeating Crewe Alexandra 3-1 away from home as Anthony Pilkington and Ellis Harrison got on the scoresheet after Harvey Macadam‘s opener was cancelled out.
While they are by no means clear of danger yet, Crainey’s side have strengthened their position in the fight for survival with that victory, and, with at least one game in hand on every side below them and a two-point lead over the drop zone, they will aim to post another crucial win on Tuesday to increase their cushion
Fleetwood will remain without Jordan Rossiter due to injury, although the midfielder is likely to be the only absentee.
Crainey has several decisions to make in attack, after Anthony Pikington and Ellis Harrison both scored off the bench on Saturday.
Further back, he is expected to stick with the defensive trio of Zak Jules, Aristote Nsiala and Tom Clarke.
Lincoln City are without Swansea City loanee Morgan Whittaker, after Saturday’s opening scorer was sent off in the second half of that game.
His absence should make room for either Tom Hopper or John Marquis, although Appleton may look to bring both in, having led the line for large portions of the campaign.
