FLEETWOOD TOWN

Fleetwood Town had a happy return from the international break as three second-half goals from Callum Johnson, Danny Andrew, and Ged Garner was enough for the home side to collect all three points against Crewe Alexandra.

Fleetwood had several great chances to take the lead in the first half but due to a couple of good saves from Will Jaaskelainen and the post, the scores remained level at half-time. Well-deserved goals from Johnson and another stunning free-kick from Andrew were the difference makers for Fleetwood in the second half, taking the game away from Crewe.

In the game before, Town carried on their perfect start to this year’s Papa John’s Trophy in their last outing as they managed to beat Barrow 3-1 at Holker Street.

Jay Matete opened the scoring in the second half with a wonderful strike from 25-yards with his weak foot before Ryan Edmondson doubled the side’s lead, latching onto a cross from the left. Max McMillan opened his account for the club late on in the game, which was his debut, with Ozzy Zanzala scoring Barrow’s only goal of the game.

BURTON ALBION

The Brewers had a five-goal thriller in their last outing as they managed to overcome Morecambe 3-2 at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The game started out at a quick pace as three goals were scored in the opening 14 minutes, two for Burton and one for Morecambe, and even though Thomas O’Connor completed his brace to give his side a two-goal lead, a Cole Stockton goal just before the final whistle made it a nervy end.

Before that, the Brewers travelled down to the South Coast and fell to feast as they lost 2-1 to Plymouth Argyle at Home Park last Saturday.

The home side opened the scoring 15 minutes into the game as Conor Grant struck past Garratt and added a second through a Ryan Broom goal just before the break. On the hour mark, Lucas Akins managed to pull a goal back for Burton, but it wasn’t enough to forge a comeback for the side.

PRE-MATCH QUOTES: SIMON GRAYSON

Head Coach Simon Grayson spoke to the press ahead of Fleetwood Town’s Sky Bet League One clash against Burton on Tuesday. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“There are no easy games in this division, you only have to see the results that come in week in, week out. They play in a certain manner and are good at set-pieces, so we need to get rested up and be ready for the game and will be looking to get back-to-back wins at home.

“We’ve been playing well, but this will be a different type of test and it’s one that we are looking forward to after beating Crewe at the weekend. They beat us the last time we met, but if we do our preparation, play like I know we can, and pass the ball around well, there’s no reason why we can’t win the game.”

Report: Town lose out in a close clash against Burton at Highbury

19 October 2021

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town narrowly fell short in their 1-0 Sky Bet League One loss to Burton Albion on Tuesday evening at Highbury.

A superb first-half performance from skipper, Alex Cairns, was soiled by an undefendable goal from Burton, as the weather helped Thomas O’Connor’s corner.

Fleetwood were very unfortunate to not get anything out of the game after their second-half performance caused quite a few problems for the away side.

The opening 10 minutes of the game saw Fleetwood enjoy spells of possession and there were positive signs early on as Ryan Edmondson got in behind the defence a couple of times but couldn’t quite provide the finishing touches.

Town were defending incredibly well as a unit throughout the first half an hour, refusing to allow Burton in behind, the only chance the visitors mustered was a pullback to Harrison Chapman, but his attempt on goal was superbly blocked by Max Clark.

Callum Camps tried an audacious effort from just outside the 18-yard box, Clark’s cross was headed clear, and Camps took the opportunity for a first-time volley, he connected well but it went over the bar.

Jay Matete enjoyed himself in the first half driving through midfield whenever he received the ball, was the next Fleetwood man to try his luck but his effort was collected by Burton’s goalkeeper, Ben Garratt.

10 minutes before half-time Fleetwood were unfortunate to concede as O’Connor’s corner, heavily assisted by the wind, found its way into the back of the net.

Cairns was putting on a real captain’s display in goal today as he produced countless fantastic saves to keep his side in the game before the break.

Town came out of the blocks immediately in the second half and put their opposition under some real pressure. Camps had an effort deflected just wide and the home side sustained the pressure from the resulting corner and won a free-kick, which Danny Andrew put just over the bar.

Fleetwood maintained their dominant start to the second half, Dan Batty’s teasing crosses were proving a real threat to the Burton backline, as were James Hill’s long throws.

Callum Johnson got on the end of Batty’s cross just before the 90th minute and directed his header goal-bound, but it was saved by Garratt.

Andrew found himself once again stood over a free-kick, but unfortunately he couldn’t replicate his recent efforts in previous games.

Despite Fleetwood’s best efforts and a very impressive second-half display, they just couldn’t find the all-important goal and the game ended with just the one, strange goal separating the two sides.

Town XI: Cairns (GK) (C), Andrew, Camps (J.Garner 76’), Edmondson (Morton 56’), G.Garner, Matete, Hill, Batty, Johnson, Biggins (Lane 56’), Clark

Unused Subs: Crellin (GK), McLaughlin, Pilkington, Johnston

Burton XI: Garratt (GK), Borthwick-Jackson, Oshilaja (C), Akins, O’Connor, Shaughnessy, Blake-Tracy, Taylor, Jebbison (Hemmings 62’), Hamer, Chapman (Lakin 66’)
