Young left back Charlie Taylor has urged Town to respond to Boxing Day’s defeat away at rivals Morecambe when they travel to Wycombe on Sunday.
Padraig Amond’s first half header on nineteen minutes was enough to seal the points for the Shrimps, as he got on the end of Robbie Threlfall’s cross and beat Scott Davies.
The result meant this was Fleetwood’s third defeat on the bounce in all competitions, having lost at home to Cheltenham the previous week, as well as bowing out of the FA Cup to Burton
Sunday’s opponents also come into the game on the back of a defeat, having lost at home to Newport County on Thursday.
Taylor said: “We haven’t got to wait long now until the game and we’ve just got to try and turn things round, and go down there and put in a good performance and hopefully get a good result”.
Reflecting on the defeat, the youngster said: “We didn’t start brightly enough and found ourselves on the back foot, but I thought after that we were the better side, but we need to start sharper”.
Despite the setbacks of late, the twenty year old is confident that the Cod Army will soon turn their form around: “We’re creating chances and I didn’t think they caused us too many problems, but we ended up losing the game and there’s things we have to work on in training ahead of the game against Wycombe”.
Taylor has caught the eye of many a supporter so far this season, with some fine displays on the left hand side of Town’s defence: “I try to get forward as much as I can and it allows me and Conor to push on. It was a poor pitch, but I tried to get as many crosses in as possible to set up opportunities for the team”.
The Yorkshireman, on loan from Championship side Leeds United, has extended his stay at Highbury until the end of the season - a move which delights him: “Playing competitive matches every week in League Two is good for me as it’s improving my game and my fitness. There’s a good group of lads here and they’re all friendly and have made me feel welcome”.
