In-form Fleetwood chasing history when Bolton visit

Fleetwood will be chasing history at a sold-out Highbury as they look to extend their unbeaten run to 19 games against Bolton.

Should the second-placed Cod Army avoid defeat, they will better Brighton's 18-match unbeaten streak from earlier in the campaign which currently stands as the best across the top five divisions this term.

Boss Uwe Rosler has had the long-serving Nathan Pond (knee) back in training, though this game may come too soon for the defender given he has been out since January.

Wes Burns (leg), Martyn Woolford (knee) and Jimmy Ryan (foot) are still sidelined.

Bolton will once more be without Jay Spearing.

The midfielder has a chance to play again this term, with Wanderers boss Phil Parkinson saying he is "making good progress", but he still faces a spell on the sidelines.

However, fellow veteran Darren Pratley is ahead of schedule in his recovery and trained this week following a long lay-off with an ankle problem.

Parkinson has had little luck with his experienced midfielders this term given Mark Davies (knee) saw his season end in August. Chris Long serves the second game of his two-match ban.
