Three To Watch: Fleetwood Town

22 September 2017

Currently 8th in the Sky Bet League One table, Fleetwood have had a decent start to the season, however they suffered a 4-1 defeat to Porstmouth last time out.

Here, we take a look at three potential threats coming out of their dressing room when Blues come up against Uwe Rosler's side.

Devante Cole (pictured above)

Devante Cole started his career with Manchester City and signed his first professional contract in 2013, before going on loan to Barnsley where he scored five goals in 19 appearances.

He signed for Bradford City in 2015 and once again scored five in 19.

Cole, the son of former England, Manchester United and Newcastle United striker, signed for Fleetwood in January 2016 and has gone on to make over 60 appearances for the Cod Army.

In his first full season, he scored eight in 46 appearances, a goal tally he has almost reached, by scoring five in just eight games this season. Cole has represented England at youth level from U16 to U19 level.

Ash Hunter

The 21-year-old has been at Fleetwood Town after he signed his first professional contract in 2015.

The then 19-year-old made 12 appearances in his half season with the club. The forwards first full season saw him improve his goal scoring form as he bagged seven in 28.

Last season he played 44 games and proved to be a real asset to Uwe Rosler’s side, scoring 11 goals.

So far this season the youngster has scored two goals in five with his most recent goal securing Fleetwood a 3-2 victory as he scored the winning goal.

Conor McAleny

Conor McAleny started his career with Everton in 2009 when he played for the U23 side, and earned himself two call ups into Everton’s first team, but has failed to push for a starting spot and has consequently been sent out on loan during his years at Everton.

He scored his first goal for Cardiff City in their 3-1 win over Rotherham in 2015.

Last season the 25-year-old spent the second half of the season at Oxford United with his second game for Oxford coming against Blues in the 2-0 away win on 14th February.

He joined Fleetwood on loan for the season this summer and has so far made five appearances and scored twice, as he aims to find a starting spot in the side.
