FLEETWOOD TOWN

Fleetwood head to Shropshire full of confidence after a 2-1 win over Rochdale last weekend, with Danny Andrew and Ched Evans scoring the goals after the visitors took the lead within the first ten minutes. The Cod Army have not tasted defeat at Highbury since February, and will look to build on that form on the road this weekend.

With Town having their Leasing.com Trophy match against Liverpool’s Under 21s on Wednesday, many first team players were rested, with those without much game time getting valuable minutes on the pitch.

Joey Barton will be looking to put pressure on the three teams above his side with a win on the road this weekend, and without tasting victory away since the opening day of the season at Peterborough - three points would come nicely on the tenth league game of the campaign.

SHREWSBURY TOWN

Shrewsbury Town sit 11th in Sky Bet League One, with three wins this season and four draws under their belt. The Salop’s are unbeaten in their last three matches, and are unbeaten all season at home.

In their last outing, Sam Ricketts’ side picked up a valuable point on the road at Rotherham United. It was a goalless draw at the New York Stadium following Shrewsbury’s emphatic 4-3 win over Southend United the week before.

LAST TIME WE MET

The last time Fleetwood and Shrewsbury Town met was on New Years Day, with the game finishing 0-0 at Montgomery Waters Meadow. Both teams had their chances in the match, but all points were shared to start 2019.

ONE TO WATCH: JASON CUMMINGS

The one to watch for Shrewsbury Town is summer signing, Jason Cummings. The forward has netted two goals in three appearances this campaign, and is the one to watch for the travelling Cod Army.

The 24-year-old scored on his debut against AFC Wimbledon, and also netted in his side 4-3 win over Southend United last time on home soil.

Cummings started off his career at Scottish side, Hibernian – where he was part of the youth set up from August 2013 to June 2017, before making the move South of the border to Nottingham.

With two-years at The City Ground – which saw a six-month loan move to Rangers and then Peterborough United, it was another loan move for the youngster before his permanent transfer to Shrewsbury this summer.

After 173 league games under his belt, he has scored 67 goals which sees the striker score one goal in every three games.

Match Reports

Report: Three goals and three points at Shrewsbury

28 September 2019

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town picked up all three points on Saturday afternoon, after a 3-0 win over Shrewsbury Town at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

In a game that saw Shrewsbury enjoy plenty of possession in the first half, it was Town who took the lead through Jimmy Dunne, who nodded home his second goal of the season from close range.

Josh Morris doubled Fleetwood’s lead with an effort from two-yards after he was teed up by Lewie Coyle just before the hour mark. Paddy Madden made it three late in the game to finish off the afternoon in Shropshire.

It was a great start for the host as Sean Goss nearly caught Alex Cairns out from 25 yards. The midfielder saw his effort tipped over the bar out for a corner. From the resulting corner, Ebanks-Landell headed the ball over for a goal-kick.

With Sam Ricketts’ side playing three at the back and five in midfield, the Shrews were able to knock the ball around well. With the side showing patience in their build-up play, Donald Love thought he had found Jason Cummings with a first-time cross but the forward failed to make contact on Love’s delivery.

Midway through the first half, Callum Lang managed to beat Harry Souttar on the right flank, and when he did, he found Ryan Giles – whose effort from 20 yards was fired over the bar.

With Fleetwood’s first opportunity of the match, defender Dunne punished Shrewsbury for their poor marking after Paul Coutts’ in-swinging corner found the Burnley loanee at the far post. He headed past Max O’Leary, onto the bar and down into the net.

Cummings – just like his teammate Goss – tried to catch out Cairns with a long-range effort. The goalkeeper did scamper back towards his goal line, however, he was able to watch the ball sail over the crossbar.

The second half started just like the first. Ricketts’ side were the side on top with Fleetwood waiting for the right moment to pounce.

On the hour mark, Town did pounce! Morris doubled the Cod Army’s lead after full-back Lewie Coyle picked out the forward inside the penalty area to tap home his fourth of the season.

Coutts nearly got on the scoresheet as a well-worked corner found the captain on the edge of the box. His curling effort narrowly went past the right-hand post.

Madden – who replaced Morris in the 75th minute – did make it three with a volley from 18-yards out. The Irishman was calm and composed has he chested the ball down before hitting it across goal and into the top corner.

Three points did go Fleetwood’s way, and as stated earlier, it was the perfect away performance from Joey Barton and his Cod Army.
