Fleetwood are in third place this season flying high. A defeat at the weekend by our A420 rivals will spur them on to get back on track.

However the U's will be extremely hurt after their Wembley defeat and will want to put in a performance to lift themselves and the fans.

Charlie Raglan, Toni Martinez & Conor McAleny all come back in for selection.
