Town will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Morecambe at Highbury this weekend. The two sides haven't met in a league fixture since the 2-2 draw in Sky Bet League Two back in 2014.

In the last league outing for Fleetwood, they narrowly lost out to Wigan at home, with a second-half onslaught seeing the side lose 3-2 on the day.

Danny Andrew opened the scoring via a free-kick eight minutes in, with Callum Morton netting from the spot in the second half. After the hour mark, goals from Callum Lang, Will Keane, and Curtis Tilt swayed the tie in the opposition's favour, with the full-time whistle shortly after.

Before that, The Cods had a 3-3 draw against Wycombe Wanderers, again at Highbury, that saw substitutes bring Town back into the game and earn a point. Andrew broke the deadlock in the tie, with Joe Garner, Shayden Morris, and Paddy Lane coming off the bench and making instant impacts, with the first two scoring, and the latter providing an assist.

Morecambe, like Fleetwood, have had a week away from league action due to the number of international players heading out for their respected countries.

One that may be familiar is Alfie McCalmont, who scored in the same Northern Ireland Under-21s tie that Paddy Lane featured in earlier this month. Chris Conn-Clarke came off the bench in that 4-0 win, scoring the last goal of the game through a brilliant free-kick.

The Shrimps, in their most recent fixture, dropped out of the Papa John’s Trophy after a 2-0 loss to Carlisle United at the Globe Arena. Second-half goals from Jordan Gibson and Kelvin Mellor settled the tie in Lancashire seeing the Cumbrians head back home with all three points.

Steve Robinson’s side had Emirates FA Cup success just before that fixture as they hosted Newport County in the opening round of the tournament on the 6th of this month. Aaron Wildig netted 22 minutes from the end, scoring the only goal of the game, securing the side’s spot in the Second Round of the competition.

Head Coach Simon Grayson spoke to the local press ahead of Fleetwood Town's Lancashire derby against local rivals Morecambe at Highbury Stadium. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

"It's a huge game because we have to start winning football matches, we have had a tough run of games but that is no excuse, you play everyone in the division and because the division is so tight, the next game is always the most important.

“Back-to-back wins can elevate you up the table, the number of clubs in the league that have been in the premier league which we now play week in week out just shows the level of football we are playing, it's the strongest I have ever seen the division.

"To get promoted proved everyone wrong and they have had somebody blows, they had momentum at the start of the season and have dropped off a bit, but we cannot underestimate them as they do have some really good players.

“We have to make sure we are turned on because we want to win all of our local derbies - every game we analyse strengths and weaknesses of the opposition and we respect every team the same as we learn about them, no matter the distance of them to us."

Match Reports

Report: Town fall to narrow defeat against Morecambe

20 November 2021

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat to local rivals Morecambe at Highbury on Saturday afternoon.

Callum Johnson thought his header had cancelled out Callum Jones’ first-half free-kick, but an injury-time winner from Cole Stockton saw Town fall to a defeat.

The first opportunity of the game fell to Jay Matete. The midfielder won a 50/50 on the edge of the box and let fire towards goal, it was unfortunately deflected just wide and went out for a corner.

Completely against the run of play, as Fleetwood had controlled the majority of the opening 10 minutes, Morecambe won a free-kick just outside the box. Jones was the man to take it and placed it perfectly into the bottom right corner of Alex Cairns’ goal, leaving Town’s number one at full stretch, still unable to reach it.

Paddy Lane seemed like a real threat down the left side in the opening 20 minutes, and he was nearly rewarded for his hard work as he cut inside onto his right, but his effort at goal was comfortably claimed by Jakull Andresson.

Down the left side again, and through Lane again, Fleetwood created another chance, as the young winger whipped the ball into Ged Garner, who could only direct his header just over the bar.

Morecambe immediately went up the other end to try and double their lead, but with superb defending from Callum Johnson he managed to deflect Arthur Gnahoua’s shot away from goal.

It was end to end at this point, as with the next passage of play, coming through Shayden Morris this time, resulted in his cross finding Callum Morton whose effort on goal was deflected behind for a corner.

Town had the visitors pinned well into their own half just before the half-hour mark and they started to grow into the game once again, as Morton once again, found himself in a goal-scoring opportunity, but Andresson did well to deny the striker with his feet.

After another promising attack from the hosts, Dan Batty curled a corner into the box and Tom Clarke powered his way through to win the header, but it bounced inches wide of the mark.

Town were really pressing for an equaliser before the break as smart play from Morris resulted in the ball falling to Garner on the edge of the box. The #19 aimed for the far top left corner but it was agonisingly too high.

Some beautiful football from Fleetwood to begin the second half and all it needed to top it off was the finish, but Garner’s first-time effort didn’t trouble Morecambe’s keeper.

Morecambe nearly scored a second, as a well-worked set-piece was left unclaimed as no one was running to the far post for the flick on.

Having switched sides, Lane was now operating from the right side of the pitch, and this time he opted to cut inside onto his left foot, but his near post effort was saved by Andresson.

Fleetwood finally had their equaliser, and it was deserved. With 10 minutes left on the clock, a Danny Andrew corner was flicked on at the near post by Johnson over the helpless Morecambe goalkeeper.

Nearly a repeat of the equaliser, Morton made a dart to the near post, and as everyone watched and waited, his flick on went just wide.

Lane came so close to winning his side all three points as Morton laid him off, but his shot from the right side of the box went an inch over the bar.

For the second game in a row, Fleetwood have been the victim of a stunner, Stockton received the ball on the halfway line, spotted Cairns off his line, and smashed it as hard as he could.

That injury-time goal took it away from Simon Grayson’s side and left them heartbroken as they had no time to try and reverse what had just happened.
