Simon Grayson’s side will be looking to avenge the narrow loss to Burton last month in their FA Cup clash and will want to get back to winning ways after’s Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat to Wigan.

Goals from Danny Andrew and Callum Morton in the evening fixture were cancelled out by second-half strikes from Callum Lang, Will Keane, and Curtis Tilt at Highbury.

In the game before, Town hosted Wycombe Wanderers in another League One fixture, which ended in a 3-3 draw after a brilliant second-half comeback.

Second-half substitutes Joe Garner and Shayden Morris brought Fleetwood back on level terms with goals immediately after entering the action as goals from Brandon Hanlan, Adebayo Akinfenwa and Sam Vokes cancelled out Danny Andrew’s opener.

Burton are heading into the cup tie on the back of two league defeats, with the last result being a 2-0 loss to Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium last Saturday.

James McClean opened the scoring in the first ten minutes of the game, which set the tone of the game, with Jonny Smith being sent off six minutes later for the Brewers. Tilt, who scored against Fleetwood on Tuesday, added a second after the break, finishing off the loss.

Before that, their clash against Oxford United started with Matty Taylor breaking the deadlock 60 seconds into the game.

The U’s seemed to go from strength to strength as an own goal from Michael Bostwick doubled their lead just before the half-time break and pressed for more. Charlie Lakin halved the lead with ten minutes to go, but a late addition from the penalty spot by James Henry made it 3-1 to the away side.

Head Coach Simon Grayson spoke to the local media ahead of his side’s Emirates FA Cup First Round tie against Burton Albion on Saturday. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“You always want to go through to the Second Round of the cup because it’s a magical trophy and there’s a lot at stake. The nature of the competition is that it’s seen worldwide, has money involved, and if you can get to the Third round, you never know where it’s going to take you.

“I’m glad we’ve got a game this weekend as we could have been going into the international break without one and we may stew on a few things, but with the Burton game coming so soon, we can get back on the grass quickly and put right what went wrong on Tuesday night with an FA Cup tie.

“We did a team presentation this morning and it was basically a replica of what we showed when we faced them a couple of weeks back at Highbury. We want to get back to winning ways and as they beat us the last time we met, it gives a little more incentive but more importantly, we want to avenge the result from Tuesday against Wigan.”

Match Reports

Report: Town knocked out of Emirates FA Cup by Burton

6 November 2021

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Burton Albion in the First Round of the Emirates FA Cup at Highbury on Saturday afternoon.

An early goal from Joe Garner was soon cancelled out by Burton’s Joe Powell and, with both sides playing through torrential conditions, Dan Jebbison scored a late goal which proved to be the difference between the two sides.

A quiet opening 10 minutes to the game was swiftly changed as Harrison Biggins’ high press led to Callum Morton being played through on goal, but unfortunately, Town’s number nine couldn’t find the far-right corner he was aiming for, and Ben Garratt parried away to safety.

Just minutes later, with the second chance of the game, J.Garner made it 1-0 to the hosts with a simple tap-in after all the hard work was done for him. Some tidy play from Jay Matete sent Shayden Morris on his way down the right flank and after successfully beating his man, he whipped a low-driven cross in which found J.Garner, happy to accept from inside the six-yard box.

It wasn’t long until Burton managed to find the goal to put them back on level terms through Powell. The midfielder received the ball on the edge of the box, picked his spot and despite Alex Cairns’ best efforts, he couldn’t keep out Powell’s effort into the top left corner.

A moment of miscommunication between Danny Andrew and his goalkeeper was nearly costly, but Cairns recovered well as Kane Hemmings tried to take it past him, but fortunately for him and his teammate, he did enough to prevent any major damage.

Morris was proving a real threat down the right-hand side as he had the beating of his man, every time. This time he opted to go for goal, and he nearly received his reward, if not for a strong hand by the Burton keeper.

Garratt decided to have a wander out of his net and was left stranded as Morris was the faster man to the ball, but the Englishman was caught in two minds as to what to do, he decided to try and curl a long-range effort past the keeper, but he curled it a bit too far and it missed the target.

The opening 10 minutes of the second half was very similar to the first 10 of the first half, neither team was able to create anything from the spells of possession they had.

Due to the weather conditions, the match became near unplayable with Fleetwood finding it very tough to create anything of note. The home side had no issue in reaching the 18-yard box, but they then seemed to lack the final ball and they were unable to trouble Garratt.

Morton tried giving his side the lead but unfortunately, his attempted effort on goal was blocked by one of the many Burton bodies, back in the area defending, and the away side cleared.

Burton found themselves in front with just over 10 minutes to go. Once again against Burton, the horrific weather affected the game and made it become scrappier than the home side would have wanted, and the visitors made sure to take advantage through Jebbison. The ball fell to Burton’s #21 just inside the penalty area and it sat up perfectly for the half volley into the bottom left corner.

Despite late changes in an attempt to find an equaliser, Fleetwood couldn’t find a way to put the ball in the back of the net for a second time and as a result, couldn’t keep their FA Cup run alive.

Town XI: Cairns (GK), Andrew, McLaughlin (C.Johnson 75’), Clarke (C), Morton (G.Garner 75’), Camps (Batty 66’), J.Garner (Edmondson 87’), Matete, Morris, Biggins, Lane

Burton XI: Garratt (GK), Borthwick-Jackson, Oshilaja (C), Powell, Hemmings (Amadi-Holloway 84’), Shaughnessy, Jebbison (Patrick 84’), Taylor, Leak, Hamer, Mancienne

Unused Subs: Balcombe (GK), Morris, O’Connor, Blake-Tracy, Maddox, Chapman, Lakin
