All the key information for Sunday's league game can be found below.

FLEETWOOD TOWN
The Cod Army started the season well, with maximum points from their opening three matches, enjoying mometum from their promotion last term. They continue to be in and around the play-off picture and are unbeaten in their last three away games, including victories at Leyton Orient and Rochdale.

MANAGER
Graham Alexander – In his playing days he was a right-back who made over 1,000 appearances with spells at Scunthorpe United, Luton Town, Preson North End and Burnley. Alexander is currently in his first full-time managerial post after a brief spell in caretaker charge of Preston North End in the 2011/12 season. The 42-year-old was appointed Fleetwood boss in December 2012 and in his first full season in charge led them to promotion from Sky Bet League Two.

STAR MAN
Stephen Dobbie - Currently on loan from Crystal Palace. The forward is Fleetwood's joint top scorer with Josh Morris and Jamie Proctor; each of them have four apiece, as Fleetwood have shared the goals around this season. Dobbie sent much of his early career in Scotland with the likes of Rangers, Hibernian, St Johnstone and Queen of the South. A perennial play-off victor, having won at Wembley with Blackpool, Swansea City and Crystal Palace.

OFFICIALS
Gavin Ward will be the man in charge, assisted by John Busby and Mark Pottage. The fourth official will be Dumitru-Ravel Cheosiaua.

TICKETS
It's a silver category fixture and is pay on the day for home fans only.

LAST TIME OUT
It was a thriller at Highbury Stadium back in September. After falling a goal behind early on, City hit back through Aaron Wilbraham. Kieran Agard grabbed a brace to put City 3-1 up, but Proctor and then Dobbie - a minute from time - ensured a share of the spoils.

LAST SEASON
League Two: 4th (Play-off final winners)
FA Cup: Second round (lost to Burton Albion)
Capital One Cup: First round (lost to Notts County)
Johnstone’s Paint Trophy: Northern area final (lost to Chesterfield)
