FLEETWOOD TOWN

The opening day of the new season started off brightly for the Cod Army away at Port Vale. Dan Batty – who had scored three in three during pre-season – opened his league count with a fine goal 6 minutes into the match. Summer Signing Promise Omochere picked out the former Hull City midfielder who slotted it past Aidan Stone in the Vale goal.

The hosts – who won their play-off final in May 2022 – struggled in the opening exchanges, but managed to pull a goal back on the half-hour mark through Nathan Smith. Two minutes later, the Valiants grabbed what was to be the winner through Connor Hall.

Town had their moments in the second half but failed to capitalise on chances that came their way. With a week on the training ground, Scott Brown and his coaching staff have been working hard with this weekend being their first official match in front of the home faithful.

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE

The Green Army started off their League One campaign with a 1-0 victory over Barnsley at Home Park. The only goal in the match saw Finn Azaz bag this first of the campaign on the 45th minute mark after joining from Premier League, Aston Villa on a season-long loan.

Plymouth have recruited well during the summer, bringing in six players with four of those being loan deals. Azaz was the first through the door, closely followed by Morgan Whittaker from Swansea, Bali Mumba from Norwich and Nigel Lonwijk from Wolves.

Their two permanent signings this window have seen Matt Butcher and Mikel Miller come on a free transfer, with them joining from Accrington Stanley and Rotherham United respectively.

With Argyle winning 26 games in all competitions last season, finishing 7th in League One – just three points outside the play-off spots. They goal will be to go one step further this campaign.

LAST MEETING BETWEEN THE SIDES

Last time the two sides met, it ended in a six-goal thriller at Highbury. Luke Jephcott opened the scoring in the 20th minute, with Paddy Lane replying four minutes later. With the scores level at the break, the visitors scored two second half goals to make it 3-1 with and with 89 on the clock, they thought they’d be making the trip back to the South West with all three points.

Fleetwood had different ideas, and when Ellis Harrison got one back with one minute left on the clock, there was time for one more goal. Callum Johnson was Town’s saviour that Tuesday night, scoring late in injury time to salvage a point for the Cod Army.

SCOTT BROWN ON PLYMOUTH ARGYLE

“We know that every game will be competitive. I have watched a lot of them recently and I think they will start off with a back three so it’s about how we can go and expose them and target the areas that they are weak in.

“Plymouth are a team who like to keep possession and play out from the back, and they do have some great players in the middle of the park and if we can put some pressure on them and force them back.

"We just have to be brave on the ball and we did showcase that in the first 25-30 minutes against Port Vale, but once they scored, we got nervous and stopped doing that. I know we can be calmer on the ball and keep possession better in those situations.”

Match Reports

Report: Late Garner goal secures three points for Town over Plymouth

6 August 2022

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town left it late in their first home league fixture of the season as they managed to beat Plymouth Argyle 2-1 at Highbury on Saturday afternoon.

With the visitors taking the lead from the penalty spot through Ryan Hardie, it was all to do for Town and what a comeback it was. Dan Batty scored his fifth goal in as many games to draw the game level before Joe Garner came off the bench late on to poke the winner home in the 88th minute.
 
The first chance of the game fell to the Cods as Dan Batty played a brilliant cross-field ball to Shaun Rooney on the right-wing, who picked out Ellis Harrison inside the box, but Michael Cooper was a match for his effort.
 
Town carried on their good start to the game as Callum Morton created another chance 11 minutes in as he played the ball to Batty in the box, who turned his man but had his shot from 12-yards blocked and cleared.
 
With an attack that seemed to be against the run of play, Argyle went down the left with Bali Mumba, who was brought down by Toto Nsiala in the Town box, meaning they would earn a penalty. Hardie stepped up to take the spot kick and placed it in the bottom left to open the scoring.
 
Just before the half-hour mark, Fleetwood drew level and it was Batty once again finding the back of the net, scoring his fifth in as many games for the Cods. Rooney was in an advanced position before finding Batty who hit the ball first time into the far corner, past Cooper.
 
That was it for the action in the first half, and both sets of fans didn’t have to wait long for the first chance of the second period as Hardie tried his luck form range after working a yard, but fired straight at Jay Lynch, who collected it with relative ease.
 
After a succession of fouls and cautions for the away side, it was Danny Andrew with the next shot as he stood over a free kick from a long way out. He directed the set-play towards the near-post, with the strike going just wide of the target.
 
With 20 minutes to go, goal scorer Batty was waiting on the edge of the box as Fleetwood played a corner-kick into a crowded area, which seemed to be a good decision as it was cleared out to him so he could try a volleyed effort, which went high and wide of Cooper’s goal.
 
Soon after, Danny Mayor had a chance to try and put the visitors ahead as he worked a yard of space on the corner of Town’s 18-yard box before striking the ball towards goal, but Nsiala was on hand to nod the ball over the bar, with Lynch also having the shot covered behind.
 
It was late drama, and it went Fleetwood’s way as substitutes Cian Hayes and J.Garner linked up with two minutes to go with the former dribbling through a crowd and crossing it in to the latter, who tapped it home from close range to see Town win the first home league fixture of the season.
 
Town XI: Lynch (GK), Andrew, Wiredu (White 73’), Vela (C), Harrison (J.Garner 80’), Morton (Hayes 80’), Lane, Nsiala, Batty (G.Garner 90+4'), Rooney (Johnston 80’), Earl.
 
Unused subs: Cairns (GK), Holgate.
 
Plymouth XI: Cooper (GK), Gillesphey, Wilson, Scarr, Butcher, Edwards (C), Hardie (Ennis 80’), Mayor, Mumba (Houghton 73’), Azaz (Whittaker 63’), Randell.
 
Unused subs: Burton (GK), Lonwijk, Galloway, Jephcott.
