With this being the final home game for the Cods this season, it’s a big one and, to make it even bigger, Town are looking to all, but secure survival, and the Owls are looking for that final playoff spot as well.

It was bedlam at the end of the last outing for Fleetwood as Joe Garner came off the bench to convert what was a weird free-kick, given up by Wombles goalkeeper Nik Tzanev. He calmly passed the ball into the bottom right to cancel out Luke McCormick’s opener to secure a point at home.

Before that, they had a testing encounter against Gillingham, which saw both sides edge their way towards the eventual goalless draw at Priestfield Stadium. The Cods’ best chance to break the deadlock was Paddy Lane’s volley from 20 yards, which had to be saved by Gills goalkeeper, Aaron Chapman.

The Owls are going into this clash at Highbury in search of the point they need to get back into the playoff spots ahead of the final game of the season. They are a single point behind Wycombe Wanderers, a team to which they lost in their last league game.

In a result that may prove to be decisive come the end of the season, the Chairboys managed to come out on top in the close encounter, with Jordan Obita scoring the only goal in the game just after the hour mark.

In the game before, it was a dominant performance against bottom of the league Crewe Alexandra a week ago, even if the scoreline didn’t show that. They have almost twice the possession and eight more attempts than the Railwaymen, but only beat them 1-0 after Lee Gregory converted a penalty 54 minutes in.

Head Coach Stephen Crainey spoke to the press after his side clawed their way back into their clash against AFC Wimbledon to secure a point at Highbury on Saturday. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“The way the results have gone, we will take the point and move on to Tuesday. The remit is to stay above the line, regardless of how we do it, and I’m not too bothered how we stay above it, whether it’s on points or goal difference. We’ve got two games left, six points to play for, and it’s still in our own hands.

“We will go into the Sheffield Wednesday game with confidence now having gotten the late equaliser. There’s a buoyant mood in the camp so we need to maintain that and show it in the game on Tuesday.

“We need to make this game against Sheffield count. They are going for the playoffs and need to win the game as well so it’s going to be another battle and it’s one, we are going to be ready for. We are going to rest and recover and will need our energy tanks full again – we are looking forward to it.”

Match Reports

Report: Town narrowly defeated by Sheffield Wednesday

26 April 2022

Fleetwood Town fell to a heart-breaking 3-2 defeat against Sheffield Wednesday in their final home game of the season at Highbury Stadium on Tuesday evening.

An action-packed first half saw Town go 1-0 down to their visitors, through Lee Gregory, but two great goals from Callum Camps and Joe Garner put Fleetwood in the lead before the break.

Two goals in less than a minute from Gregory completed his hat-trick in a second-half comeback from the Owls which Town had no answer for.

The first chance of the game fell to Wednesday’s Gregory who had to work the chance for himself with a first touch that took him around his man, and he was able to place it just inside the near post to give the away side an early lead.

Fleetwood were struggling to get a hold of the game in the opening 10 minutes, with George Byers the next man to try his luck, but the Owls’ number 14 sliced his volley wide.

The visitors were enjoying the majority of the ball, but Town were making it difficult to break them down again, as Gregory attempted to double his tally for the evening, but his effort was cleared by Zak Jules before it could reach the goal.

Thanks to some hard work and determination from Cian Hayes, he won the ball back inside the final third and tried cutting it back to Garner but it was cleared before the striker could reach it. However, it was only cleared as far as Camps who drilled the ball into the bottom right corner, which Peacock-Farrell could do nothing about.

After their equaliser, Town started to dictate the game more and gained some control, Dan Batty was the next man in a red and white shirt to have an effort on goal but his attempt was blocked by the Cods’ first goalscorer.

It wasn’t long until Fleetwood took the lead, and it was the hero against AFC Wimbledon who did it again. Batty’s pinpoint cross from a free-kick laid it on a plate for Garner to produce a bullet header into the top right corner.

A few minutes later, Wednesday tried to find an equaliser themselves and they nearly found it. A chip from Bannan that came back off the post caused chaos inside the six-yard box as the ball took several blocks on the goal line, before once again hitting the woodwork and eventually going out for a goal kick.

It was a tough start to the second half as Jules’ shirt was ripped from the collar, Hayes needed treatment, Batty and Bannan got into a little tussle whilst Andrew and Hutchinson both received yellow cards for a similar event.

The game didn’t calm down towards the hour mark as Gregory pulled out of a stamp on Camps and then moments later, Massimo Luongo did catch the midfielder and went into the book for doing so.

The first real chance of the second half came with 25 minutes to go. Gregory brought down an overhit cross which gave Bannan the chance to cut inside and get his tame shot off which was easy for Cairns to collect.

Town were doing all they could do to hold off the second-half wave of pressure from Wednesday, but they couldn’t stop Gregory from claiming a hat trick. The #9 headed into the back of the net for the equaliser and then 30 seconds later from the kick-off, he scored his third from distance, directing it into the bottom left corner.

Despite Town’s best efforts to get back into the game, they couldn’t create anything to level the scoreline in the final stages of the game.
