The Cods head into the game against league leaders Rotherham United on the back of a vital win over Doncaster Rovers at the Eco-Power Stadium last Saturday.

In the game that finished 1-0, The deciding goal in the game was scored by debutant Ellis Harrison, who signed for the club just hours before naming the line-up ahead of the game, as he poked home Paddy Lane’s low-driven cross from the right – finishing off the perfect opening day for the forward.

Town fell short in the game before that, which was a home clash against Shrewsbury Town on Boxing Day, which halted the three-game unbeaten streak the side was on. Even though Fleetwood managed to create multiple chances throughout the game, which challenged Marco Marosi, they were defeated after goals from Ryan Bowman, Josh Vela, and Daniel Udoh.

The Millers took Queens Park Rangers to both extra time and penalties in their Emirates FA Cup Third Round tie, which ended in the narrowest defeat to the Championship side after 15 scored penalties.

The sides went into extra time goalless with both sides unable to find the back of the net in normal time, but a goal from Michael Ihiekwe in the 98th minute put Rotherham ahead in the tie before Lyndon Dykes netted the equaliser five minutes from time. After a tense shootout, QPR came out as 8-7 winners.

A Papa John’s Trophy win over Crewe Alexandra was before this as well as their 2-1 win over Bolton Wanderers in the league. In the league clash, Michael Smith scored a brace, with a goal coming either side of Eoin Doyle's goal.

Head Coach Stephen Crainey spoke to the media ahead of his side’s Sky Bet League One clash against league leaders Rotherham United at Highbury on Saturday. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“I’m looking forward to the game, we are coming off the back of a good result which was a win against Doncaster at the weekend, and games that follow don’t come much bigger than the club at the top of the league so it’s going to be a good test to see where the group are at. We’ll go into the game with confidence, prepare properly, and hope we can get a positive result on the day.

“They are a good solid side, who have got strength in depth in the squad, but we feel like we are going into it with some good form and have played well in the last game in Doncaster so, hopefully, we can back that up at Highbury this weekend. We know their strengths and we are hoping to combat those and will look to play at their weaknesses as well.

“This is a good benchmark to see how far we’ve come as a team; the group have been unbelievable up until now and I’m sure they will carry that on come Saturday. We’re under no illusions as we know how tough it will be so if we can get in and about them and play our style of football at the same time, we will be more likely to get a positive result at the end of it.”

Report: Goal at the death seals thrilling win over Rotherham

15 January 2022

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town finished off a spirited performance against league leaders Rotherham United at Highbury Stadium, beating them in a thrilling 1-0 win on Saturday afternoon.

Substitute Anthony Pilkington was the difference maker between the two sides as he poked home from close range in the final few minutes of injury time to make it two wins on the bounce for Town, and also six points taken from a possible six against Rotherham this season.

Less than two minutes in Cian Hayes played a perfectly weighted ball into the path of Callum Camps to send the midfielder through on goal. Town’s number 10 tried to send the Rotherham keeper the wrong way, but Joshua Vickers’ trailing leg just kept the ball out.

From the resulting corner, taken by Danny Andrew, Camps was the man in focus once again as he connected cleanly with a volley that went wide of the mark.

Fleetwood started the game the better side and, on the front foot. Tom Clarke was the next player in a red and white strip to test the keeper, but after doing the hard work to reach Dan Batty’s lofted free-kick into the area, the centre half’s header was too soft to trouble Vickers.

Camps tried his luck for the third time, this time from a bit further out, but his strike lacked direction and it was easily collected by Rotherham’s number 31.

For the first time of the afternoon Rotherham got in behind the Fleetwood defence through Grigg, the striker tried squaring it, virtually across the goal line, but none of his teammates were in support.

Grigg controlled the ball well, that was fired into him, inside the 18-yard box with his back to goal and he managed to spin and get a shot away, that looked to be heading on target but due to Clarke’s superb block, it went behind for a corner.

Rotherham enjoyed a spell of possession around the half-hour mark, as once again, Grigg was involved. He managed to get on the end of an incoming cross and directed it towards goal, but Alex Cairns calmly dealt with it.

Rotherham’s number nine was proving to be a real threat in the first half, as this time, from a well-worked free-kick Chiedozie Ogbene cut it back from the by-line and the striker tried to chest it into the back of the net from close range, but it went inches wide of the post.

Grigg was getting closer and closer to opening the scoring, as this time his header from inside the six-yard box hit the bar, and then his rebound was cleared off the line by the crowd of Town bodies defending their goal.

Just a couple of minutes later, Harrison came just as close. The visitor’s keeper cleared an incoming ball, but it ended up coming to Camps who headed it back into the box for the January signing as he looked to make it two in two but his header just didn’t quite dip enough to go under the bar.

As half-time was looming, Cairns was called upon to make a huge save. Ogbene jumped higher than the rest to reach the cross, but his header was kept out brilliantly from Cairns as he had to be at full stretch to keep the scores level.

The first time either goalkeeper had to do anything in the second half was after an hour had been played. Joshua Kayode won the ball just inside Town’s half and drove towards goal. His long-range effort was easily collected by Fleetwood’s number one.

Clarke came so close to giving the hosts the lead but his header, which had Vickers panicking, went inches over the bar. A few minutes later Lane tried his luck from distance with a well-struck shot that wasn’t too far away from hitting the target.

A rapid counter-attack saw Lane and Pilkington in a two vs two situation, the former was the man bearing down on goal with the ball at his feet and he tried to play in his teammate but Dan Barlaser made a terrific last-ditch interception to deny Pilkington any opportunity.

When for all the world it looked like it was ending as a goalless draw, Pilkington stepped up and latched onto the end of Toto Nsiala’s header and tapped it home from close range late, late into injury time.

Town XI: Cairns (GK), Andrew (C), Jules, Clarke, Harrison, Camps (Matete 85’), Batty, Johnson, Lane, Johnston (Nsiala 46’), Hayes (Pilkington 67’)

Subs: Crellin (GK) Morris, Boyle, McMillan

Rotherham XI: Vickers (GK), Barslaser, Wood (C), Wiles, Grigg (Kayode 46’), Ogbene, Ferguson, Rathbone, Ihiekwe, Edmonds-Green, Smith

Subs: Johansson (GK), Harding, Mattock, Ladapo, Lindsay, Odoffin
