Fleetwood head into the game against the Shrews on the back of two consecutive home draws against high-flying Plymouth Argyle and Cambridge United respectively.

In the Cambridge clash, it was midfielder Wes Hoolahan who opened the scoring for the visitors directly from a corner but Paddy Lane’s curling effort from distance levelled things up for Fleetwood meaning the two sides share the spoils.

In the game before against Argyle, Stephen Crainey’s men played out a thrilling 3-3 draw which saw Luke Jephcott open the scoring. Paddy Lane levelled the game up soon after. Both Joe Edwards and Niall Ennis goals seemed to secure the result, but a late burst saw the points split one apiece.

The Shrews go into the game with the same record over the last two games, as their league clashes against Gillingham and AFC Wimbledon have ended in a goalless draw and a one-all draw.

The game against Gillingham was against Salop in terms of stats, but they managed to do better in their away trip to Plough Lane as they came back from a goal down through a Daniel Udoh strike to start an unbeaten streak.

Even though they haven’t won any of their last five games, they still find themselves two places above Fleetwood in the table. Their last win was an impressive 1-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday at home, when Matthew Pennington netted the only goal of the game on the stroke of half time.

Head Coach Stephen Crainey spoke to the press on Thursday afternoon ahead of his side’s Sky Bet League One clash against Shrewsbury Town at the Montgomery Waters Meadow. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“We’ve got our own style of play and we know how we like to play football, but we know that you have to mix it in League One o earn the right to get the ball down and play so we certainly have to do that. If we show our quality on the ball, we have the ability to get more goals on the day and potentially take home the three points.

“The home game sticks in the back of my throat a bit because that’s the one and only game we’ve not been at it since I’ve taken over as we lacked a bit of intensity on the day, but we got to the bottom of it when we debriefed the game the next day so hopefully, we can put that wrong right on Saturday. We know it’s going to be tough, as they are a real physical side, as they showed on Boxing Day. We will be looking to stand up to them and look to win the game.

“Every game is three points regardless of where they are. I think we are stronger after the players we brought in with Zak [Jules], Toto [Nsiala], Ellis Harrison, Kieran [O’Hara], Dan [Butterworth], and Josh Harrop - we’ve made some good additions to the group. They’ve made us more physical and technical so we’ve got a good mix in the team as we can play when we get time to, and we can also mix it as we’ve shown in recent games.”

Match Reports

Report: Town forced to share the points after Shrewsbury draw

5 February 2022

Fleetwood Town played out a 1-1 draw against Shrewsbury Town at the Montgomery Waters Meadow on Saturday afternoon.

The Cods took the lead after Anthony Pilkington rose highest to get on the end of Callum Johnson’s cross, but a penalty right after the second half started saw the home side pull it back to level terms, with Luke Leahy converting the spot-kick.

Fleetwood created the first chance of the game when Danny Andrew’s corner picked out Pilkington on the edge of the area. His shot was deflected up in the air and met by the head of Toto Nsiala who nodded his effort wide of the post.

Ryan Bowman came close for the hosts when he found space in the area. However, his shot was superbly saved by the right foot of goalkeeper Alex Cairns.

At the other end, Dan Batty picked out the run of Ellis Harrison from a deep position, but his headed effort from within the six-yard box could only find the gloves of Marko Marosi.

Town took the lead just over 20 minutes into the game. It was another ball into the area, this time by Johnson from the right flank. His looping cross found the run of Pilkington who nodded home from the penalty spot.

It almost broke for Andrew when he powered his way through a crowd of Shrewsbury players into the box, with the ball still stuck to his feet. However, it was a little too much and the Fleetwood captain’s effort was deflected into the hands of the goalkeeper.

Andrew was at the heart of the action once again when his low cross caused confusion amongst the Shrewsbury backline. Defender Matthew Pennington’s miscued clearance almost ended up in his own goal, but Marosi was down quickly to make the save.

Two minutes after the restart, the hosts were awarded a penalty after Zak Jules committed a foul in the penalty area. Leahy stepped up and converted the spot-kick.

Pilkington came close when he let one fly from the edge of the box. His shot across goal looked threatening but flew just wide of the post.

In the 69th minute, Callum Camps’ tried his luck from 30-yards. His optimistic free-kick was on-target and forced Marosi into a save.

Elliot Bennett’s curling free-kick called Cairns into action with 10 minutes to go. The resulting corner saw Fleetwood’s stopper pull off an even finer save - leaping to his right to deny a close-range header before Harrison cleared.

Butterworth almost found a way through in the closing minutes of the game when he curled one towards goal from 20-yards. He saw his effort tipped over the bar.

With 89 minutes on the clock, the Shrews looked like they were going to snatch all three points, but a combination of onrushing Fleetwood defenders saw the ball cleared off the line.

The match came to a controversial conclusion when the referee dismissed Callum Camps.

Fleetwood XI: Cairns (GK), Andrew (C), Jules, Clarke, Harrison, Camps, Pilkington (Morris 76’), Batty (Biggins 90’), C.Johnson, Lane, Nsiala (Butterworth 60’).
