Stephen Crainey’s side head to Greater Manchester on the back of a six-goal thriller at Fratton Park from the weekend, which saw Paddy Lane rifle in a goal of the season contender just before the half-time break.

Four goals in the first half meant it was an action-packed first 45, however, it was backs to the wall for Fleetwood as the backline was broken twice in the second half the last in stoppage time meant the points were shared.

The Cods had the two games before that called off because of abnormal weather conditions and stadium damage against Lincoln City and Sheffield Wednesday and they lost out to Cheltenham Town in another recent outing, with the game ending in a 2-0 loss.

The Latics are flying high in Sky Bet League One at the moment as they currently sit in second place, only behind Rotherham United – a team which Fleetwood have beaten twice this season.

Apart from their last outing, which was a 3-0 loss to fellow promotion-candidates Sunderland, Wigan have been in good form as they have managed to beat Charlton Athletic, Crewe Alexandra, and Wycombe Wanderers in their last five games.

In that win over the Chairboys, it was a late flurry of goals that sealed the win as Tom Naylor cancelled our Sulley Kaikai’s opener before Callum Lang scored a four-minute brace ten minutes from time to secure the points on the night.

Head Coach Stephen Crainey spoke to the media after his side drew 3-3 away at Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Saturday afternoon. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“We’re disappointed, it’s a tough place to come here at Fratton Park but I thought in the first half we were outstanding with three brilliant goals, their penalty was a turning point, and it changed the complexity of the game.

“I am pleased with the group to come to a sold-out stadium and to give an effort of themselves, we will get a new game plan for Tuesday and will recharge our batteries so we can learn from it and go again, we showed good energy in the first half.

“We’re really looking forward to our games ahead, there isn’t much in League One, I say this in all my interviews if we go into games the way we know we can carry momentum. We have Wigan on Tuesday who are flying but we’re a really good side and we do show that and there’s no reason why we can’t get anything out of the game.”

Match Reports

Report: Town lose out on the road in tough clash against Wigan

1 March 2022

Fleetwood Town made the short trip away to Wigan Athletic, where they suffered a 2-0 loss on Tuesday night at the DW Stadium.

Two late first-half goals dealt Fleetwood a massive blow after a promising opening 45-minute performance. Will Keane converted a penalty and five minutes later, James McClean doubled the home side’s advantage. Town looked to fight back in the second half, but it just wasn’t their night.

Shayden Morris made a very promising start to the game after receiving the ball just inside the opposition half from Carl Johnston. The winger drove all the way into the 18-yard box, beating his man in the process and producing a very good strike towards the bottom left corner of Ben Amos’ goal – Wigan’s goalkeeper was able to get down and parry it away from danger.

A few minutes later, McClean tried his luck after the ball found its way to him from a corner, but Ellis Harrison was there to flick the ball over the bar.

From the resulting corner, Will Keane rattled the post from inside the six-yard box and Alex Cairns was called into action for the first time on his 200th league start for Fleetwood, as he held on well to Kell Watts’ header.

After a period of sustained pressure from Town, the ball fell to Johnston just outside the box, and once again, Amos was worried and had to get down low to his bottom left corner to deny Fleetwood’s number 38 from opening the scoring.

The middle stages of the first half were played primarily in the middle of the park, but Johnston played an inch-perfect pass through the lines to find an underlapping Callum Johnson, but his attempted pull back at the byline was gathered easily by Amos.

With just under 10 minutes to go of the first half, Wigan were awarded a penalty at the cost of Johnson appearing to block an incoming shot with his hand. Keane was the man who tucked away from the spot-kick.

McClean made it 2-0 just before the break after finishing off a counter-attack for the home side. The Irishman received the ball on the edge of the box, set himself up with another touch, and curled it into the bottom right corner.

Town captain, Danny Andrew was hoping to help his side get back into the game just before the break, but his injury-time free-kick wasn’t contested by any man in a red and white shirt and Amos had to b alert to make sure the cross didn’t find its way into the back of the net.

Cian Hayes entered the action at the start of the second half and was providing a real threat on the left-wing. The youngster took on two men superbly, but his right-footed effort was cleared by the Wigan defence.

After a well-worked attack from Wigan, Callum Lang was at full stretch trying to reach Tendayi Darikwa’s cross, but he could only manage to direct it against the post, leaving the difference still at two goals.

Hayes was once again the man looking to make things happen as he tried using those silky feet to make a difference. It appeared as if he was brought down inside the box, but the referee waved away all Fleetwood appeals for a penalty.

Wigan XI: Amos (GK), Watts, Whatmough, Power, Keane, Shinnie, Lang (Tilt 86’), McClean, Darikwa (C) (Massey 87’), Humphrys (Magennis 65’)

Subs not used: Jones (GK), Edwards, Bennett, Rea
