FLEETWOOD TOWN

The Cod Army will be looking to get back to winning ways after back to back defeats, most recently a narrow 1-0 loss to Peterborough United at Highbury Stadium on Good Friday.

The Posh scored the only goal of the game in the 89th minute when Jonson Clarke-Harris found the back of the net with a free kick from the edge of the box. Early in the first half, Wes Burns had Fleetwood’s best chance of the game, but he failed to break the deadlock and fired over from close range.

Before the international break, Town lost 2-0 to John Sheridan’s Swindon Town. Scott Twine opened the scoring for the Robins with the first shot of the game inside the first five minutes. The midfielder added to his tally and doubled his side’s lead midway through the second half, with Ged Garner coming close to finding the net for the Cod Army.

AFC WIMBLEDON

Hosts AFC Wimbledon will be looking to grab all three points on Monday and bounce back from Friday’s 1-0 defeat to Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.

Defender Sam Wood’s scored his first of the season and the only goal of the game just 11 minutes into the game. Despite the Dons dominating possession, it was Argyle who came away with all three points.

The week before, Mark Robinson’s side put in a hard-fought performance to beat Northampton Town 1-0. In the 88th minute Joe Pigott forced home a loose ball in the penalty area, blocking Peter Kioso’s attempted clearance to earn his side the victory. There was more late drama when the Cobblers were awarded a penalty, but goalkeeper Nikola Tzanev saved Sam Hoskins' penalty.

ONE TO WATCH: JOE PIGOTT

The one to watch for the Dons is Joe Pigott. The 27-year-old has contributed to exactly 50 percent of his side’s league goals this season (14 goals and four assists).

Pigott, born in Maidenhead, started his career at Charlton Athletic. He underwent various loan spells across different levels of English football after signing his professional contract in 2012, most notably at Southend United where he spent two consecutive spells between 2015 and 2016.

He featured in the Shrimpers’ 2015 League Two play-off Final at Wembley against Wycombe Wanderers, where he scored in extra time to take the match to a penalty shoot-out. Pigott scored Southend's first penalty in the 7–6 shoot-out victory, which saw the team win promotion to League One.

Pigott’s impressive performances for Southend earned him a move to Cambridge United for whom he made 10 appearances, before going out on loan to Maidstone United where he found some form and scored six goals for the club.

After settling in at Maidstone, the attacking midfielder signed for The Stones permanently on a one-year contract going on to score 17 goals in all competitions.

In January 2018, Pigott signed for the Dons for whom he has made 139 appearances in all competitions, scoring 46 goals. He scored four minutes into his AFC Wimbledon debut in a 2–0 victory at home to Blackpool after coming off the bench in the second half.

Match Reports

Report: Last gasp McKay goal earns Town the win in Wimbledon

5 April 2021

Sponsored by

A late goal from Barrie McKay sees Fleetwood Town pick up all three points against AFC Wimbledon on Easter Monday at Plough Lane.

It was a scrappy affair for much of the game in South London, but a defensive error put the hosts’ goalkeeper under pressure just two minutes from the end, which substitute Mckay pounced upon, meaning Town would end up winners on the cold afternoon.

The game started slowly as the hosts had most of the possession in the early stages. Fleetwood’s defence did well to soak that up and even managed to create the first attack of the game as Wes Burns’ strike from distance was pushed out by Nikola Tzanev - Ged Garner couldn’t poach onto the loose ball within the box - and AFC Wimbledon cleared their lines.

The game was then played in the middle of the park for a while, with the next chance coming just before the half-hour mark as the Cod Army started to move their way up the gears, advancing forward with the ball in what was their best period of the game in a hope they could have taken advantage of their resolute defending so far.

Just before the end of the first half, Burns had another chance that tested Tzanev, this time from a free-kick on the edge of the box which the ‘keeper punched away.

The Cod Army’s dominance late on in the first half was nearly rewarded as again Burns struck the ball sweetly from the right, but Tzanev matched the effort and despite Callum Connolly’s best efforts to guide the loose ball goal-bound, nothing came from that attack.

The opening ten minutes of the second period were identical to the opening ten of the first, both sides hustling the other on the ball, but no test for either ‘keeper.

Just over the hour mark, the game started to open up as both sides went searching for the opener, neither ‘keeper was tested too much, but Janoi Donacien’s inviting ball into the Dons’ penalty area intended for Kyle Vassell was claimed by Tzanev.

With 20 minutes to go, substitute McKay drove forward with the ball, he looked to get a cross into the box, but his effort was blocked for a corner- the corner was taken short, and a short routine was worked between Danny Andrew and McKay, it was pushed to Sam Finley whose effort from 20-yards flew over the bar.

Kyle Vassell’s drilled effort from 12 yards was pushed out for a corner by Tzanev within the final nine minutes, a corner resulted from the chance, but McKay’s corner was punched away from danger from Tzanev again.

With just two minutes to go, the deadlock was broken in the Cod Army’s favour as McKay pounced on Tzanev’s heavy touch and the ricochet bounced off the Fleetwood man into the back of the net.

Despite Wimbledon’s best efforts to get back into the game, Fleetwood’s defence stood firm within the six minutes additional time which ensured McKay’s goal was the all-important difference which meant the Cod Army took all three points and a clean sheet back up north.
