Fleetwood have been involved in some high scoring games on their travels, and the National League is usually full of goals. But Chorley have produced a large number of their home wins by the way of wins with a clean sheet, and they’ll likely be forced to spend some time making sure they keep things tight and protect their goal first and foremost.

Chorley have shared the goal scoring responsibility this season, though Nick Haughton was the cup hero with a hat-trick to add to a goal in a previous round and four in league action. Fleetwood have a wealth of striking options and although Devante Cole has eight in 16, he could well make way for the likes of Burns to get a run out here.
