Another tough battle on the road is on the cards for Fleetwood as they travel to Staffordshire to take on the Brewers at the weekend and they will be hoping to take all three points after their loss to Sunderland last time out.

Town started the better side in the game in Tyne and Wear as Ellis Harrison managed to break the deadlock after latching onto a loose back pass, but second-half goals from Elliot Embleton, Luke O’Nien, and Jack Clarke swayed the tie in the home side's favour.

Before that, Town were at home for the first time in what seemed to be a while, but, in an even game that saw only a few chances for both sides, it was goals from Samy Morsy and Kayden Jackson that settled that tie at Highbury Stadium.

The Brewers are in a rough run of form at the moment, with one victory in their last six games, so they will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday when the Cods arrive in their neck of the woods.

It wasn’t a result to look back on for the side last time out as they lost 4-1 to Oxford United last weekend, with Adlene Guedioura getting their goal on the day. Unfortunately for them, it was a brace from Sam Baldock and one apiece for Gavin Whyte and Matt Taylor which decided the tie.

The previously mentioned win came back in the middle of February, and it ended 3-1 against Bolton Wanderers at home. Joe Powell opened the scoring early on, with a quick brace from John Brayford making it 3-0 just 18 minutes in. Former-Cod Dion Charles netted a consolation just before the end to round out the scoring.

Head Coach Stephen Crainey spoke to the press ahead of his side’s Sky Bet League One clash against Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“They are a good, solid side in League One and we know it’s going to be a tough game. They’re physical so we need to match that, and they’ve got good all-around quality and good individual players, much like ourselves.

"You need to be wary of that, but at the same time, be confident in what we can do attacking them and potentially hurting them at the other end at the same time. I’ve watched their last couple of games, and they’ve been in them, just they are a little bit like us in the fact that no decisions are going for them.

"That’s just football and I’m sure Jimmy [Floyd Hasselbaink] will have them fired up for when we get down to their place. We are under no illusions about how tough the game will be for us, but if we carry on playing the way we are, hopefully, it will be enough to get the points.

“I know it’s easy for me to say we are going to win games of football, but I do believe we are going to do that and it’s only a matter of time until our luck changes. We are hoping that it will change on Saturday, but we just need to make sure that we keep our levels and maintain our standards.”

Report: Town lose out late on in away clash against Burton

12 March 2022

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town lost out to Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Cod Army took a first-half lead when Burton’s Deji Oshilaja nodded Barry Baggley’s looping cross into his own goal before Dan Butterworth poked home a second with his first touch.

A Second-half onslaught followed from the home side as Oumar Niasse grabbed a goal on either side of Louis Moult’s strike, which found the back of the net.

Town had the opening chance of the game when Cian Hayes picked out Ged Garner on the left. He took one touch before firing a low, driven effort across goal from range - forcing Ben Garratt into a smart, diving save, pushing the ball clear with his left hand.

Fleetwood continued to put the home side under pressure when Hayes and Baggley – who replaced the injured Danny Andrew – linked up nicely in the middle of the park before finding Paddy Lane out wide. However, his teasing ball into the danger area wasn’t met by a Fleetwood body.

In the 19th minute, the Cod Army were rewarded for their bright start when they took the lead. It looked like Baggley’s looping free-kick was met by the head of Nsiala who nodded home. But, after confusion amongst the Burton backline, it was Brewer’s defender Deji Oshlaja who got the final touch.

Town looked to double their lead almost instantly when Lane linked up with G.Garner. The forward looked to pick out the bottom left corner but was denied by Garratt for the second time.

The home side responded and came close to levelling the score when Jonny Smith struck the woodwork after finding space inside the area. The Cods got enough bodies around the ball to deny the Brewers at the second attempt.

The winger had another chance to level the score just before the break when he received the ball on the edge of the area. He saw not one, but two efforts blocked before Harry Chapman had a third charged down by the Fleetwood defence.

Smith was at the heart of the action once again in the second half when he drove down the right-wing and into the penalty area. His shot, however, was too high and didn’t trouble Kieran O’Hara.

With 57 minutes on the clock, Butterworth entered the field in place of G.Garner. Just one minute later, he met Hayes’ ball across the six-yard box to give his side the lead with his first touch of the game.

At the other end, Niasse almost halved the deficit when he forced a sublime save out of O’Hara, who dove to his right to make the save from close range.

Butterworth came close to adding to his tally when he tried his luck from the edge of the area. His strike was just wide of the far post.

Just after the hour mark, the Brewer’s pulled one back. Conor Shaghnessey saw his header bounce off the crossbar and O’Hara was in the way to deny Smith’s follow-up. However, Niasse was able to pounce at the third attempt and poke home from close range despite the goalkeeper’s best efforts.

Fleetwood came close to finding a third when Hayes dispossessed Sam Hughes – who was the last defender – and played Butterworth through on goal. This time, the goal scorers saw his effort saved by the Burton stopper.

The pair linked up again with just under 15 minutes to play. Haye’s fizzed the ball into Town’s number eight who after a nice touch, unleashed an effort on goal, forcing Garratt into a smart reaction save.

The home side came close with 10 minutes to play when Ciaran Milligan slipped in behind. His shot was blocked by Nsiala before it could reach the goal line.

In the 82nd minute, the home side levelled the score through Louis Moult who poked home from 12 yards after Hughes hooked the ball back into the danger zone.

Town almost regained their lead immediately when Hayes found the net, but the flag was raised on the near side.

The Brewers completed their comeback in added time when Niasse was played in behind. He beat Callum Johnson before firing past O’Hara.

Town XI: O'Hara (GK), Andrew (C) (Biggins 7’), G.Garner (Butterworth 56’), Morris (Thiam 64’), C.Johnson, Baggley, Lane, Nsiala, Boyle, Johnston, Hayes.

Unused subs: Cairns (GK), Donaghy (GK), Bird.

Burton XI: Garratt (GK), Brayford (C) (Moult 82’), Oshilaja, Chapman, Smith, Hughes, Shaughnessey, Niasse, Hamer, Mancienne (Saydee 60’), Lakin (Gillian 60’).

Unused subs: Kovar, Borthwick-Jackson, Ahadme, Maddox.
