Steven Gillespie is keen to score his first league goal for Fleetwood Town following a brace in the Central League Cup on Wednesday.

Town beat a young Stoke City side with Tom Barkhuizen and Alex Titchiner contributing a goal apiece. Gillespie, a summer capture from Colchester United, has made five substitute appearances with one start in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy so far this season. “It will be good to claim that first goal in the league for Fleetwood. I’ve scored enough in the Football League so I’m not waiting to break that milestone. But it will be good to score that first one for Fleetwood. “ Town have showed their attacking intent with eight goals in their last two League games. “The lads get forward well and we have plenty of goals in us. We pass the ball well and that has shown with four goals in each of the last two games.” Northampton Town visit Highbury on Saturday and Gillespie says his former boss Aidy Boothroyd will bring a tough challenge. “It will be a difficult game. I worked under Aidy at Colchester for a couple of years and he sets his teams up well. They will be very organised and hard to beat. It will be a different type of game than what the lads are used to but we will do well. “It will be good to see him again. He was a top manager but we will be looking to claim the three points.” Kick-off on Saturday is 3pm. Full match information can be found here.
