Scott Davies put in a top drawer performance last Saturday and his clean sheet earned Fleetwood Town a point. 

“Places like Bristol Rovers are difficult to visit particularly after they picked up an away point in midweek. We kept a clean sheet and gained a point and we can go home reasonably happy.” It wasn’t until the second half that Davies was first called into action.  Two shots from Dave Clarkson and a volley from Ollie Norburn proved to be the biggest test on the Town goal. “No one should be fooled by their league position. Two years ago they were a League 1 side and we were Conference North. It’s a good point. “You don’t really need to take note of the league (position) until you are 10 or 15 games into the season. Their current position is a bit false and we knew it would be a difficult game. Town now face Barnet in npower League 2 on Saturday at Highbury and Davies says his side will build on the Bristol point. “It’s been a tough week with 3 games and we’ll regroup in training. This week will be all about Saturday and planning for a good result. As a defensive unit we have to happy with 5 clean sheets out of 8 and that is plenty to push on with.” Kick-off on Saturday is 3pm.  The ticket office is open from 9am to 5pm until Friday and 9am to kick-off on match day.
