19/20 Games/Goals: 4/0
Highly rated as a youngster at Rangers, it’s been a difficult few years for the Glaswegian since he departed Ibrox two seasons ago.
The winger joined Fleetwood on loan from Swansea in the January transfer window and has been relishing his time at Highbury, however, with his team picking up four wins from the four games he has started.
With a keen eye for goal, McKay is best remembered for a 30-yard screamer he scored for the Gers during their’ first Old Firm win since their demotion - a goal he is still heralded for up in Scotland.
He’s got bags of piece and is a very tricky customer. If he’s not watched carefully, McKay could be the difference between the sides this evening.

One of the most prolific marksmen in the third tier for the past decade, Dublin-born Madden has over 100 goals to his name following spells at Carlisle United, Scunthorpe United, Yeovil Town and, of course, Fleetwood Town.
Barton will point to Madden’s prolific partnership with Ched Evans as a key factor in The Cod Army’s promotion push this season.
The striker has already equalled his tally from last term and will be looking to add to his impressive record against Sunderland, after notching home and away in our games last term.
A real fox-in-the-box, Madden will be looking to be the man that breaks Jon McLaughlin’s impressive clean sheet tally.
19/20 Games/Goals: 7/0
The 36-year-old former Stoke City midfielder really doesn’t need much of an introduction, having formed part of the successful Tony Pulis side of the early 00’s.
With 92 caps for Republic of Ireland, the Dubliner has had a nomadic few years since leaving the Potters, taking in spells at Aston Villa and Hearts before being brought to Fleetwood by Joey Barton in the early throws of the January transfer window.
His arrival has coincided with the Cod Army’s fantastic form, with Barton’s side winning five and drawing two of the games hes been involved in, so Max Power and George Dobson will have to continue their top form against a wily, experience pro this evening.
