Fleetwood Town face Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday
Seeking to snap their five-game winless run and steer clear of the drop zone, Fleetwood Town play host to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.
The visitors, meanwhile, will be aiming to move into the playoff picture as they currently sit seventh in the table with 79 points from 44 games.
Fleetwood Town took another blow to their survival chances as they were held to a somewhat disappointing 1-1 draw by 23rd-placed AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
They have now failed to win any of their most recent five outings, picking up three draws and losing twice since a 3-1 victory at Crewe Alexandra on April 2.
With 40 points from 44 games, Fleetwood Town are currently 20th in the EFL League One table, level on points with 21st-placed Gillingham in the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday were kicked out of the playoff places last time out as they fell to a 1-0 loss at Wycombe Wanderers.
Prior to that, they were on an impressive eight-game unbeaten run, picking up five wins and three draws in that time.
With 79 points from 44 games, Sheffield Wednesday are currently seventh in the table, one point off sixth-placed Wycombe Wanderers in the final playoff spot.
