David Ball admitted that his goal was too little too late for Fleetwood, but believes they are still firmly in the play off race depsite the defeat to Plymouth on Saturday.

The striker netted his eighth goal of the season but was disappointed with the amount of wasted chances and Alan Goodall's sending off, which ultimately contributed towards the loss. He said: "We piled on the pressure for them, they were all sat in our half in the second half but it is frustrating to get just the one. The amount of chances that we had, we should have taken something from the game. "It does kill you, a sending off and then the goals. I don't think it was a sending off, but our momentum seemed to change then. Goals obviously change games and we have had more than enough chances to score eight or 9 goals today. It is disappointing. " Ball also looked ahead to Barnet on Tuesday. The game in hand could help put Fleetwood back in the play off mix with three points, something Ball is confident about ahead of the trip to Underhill. Ball continued: "We are six points off the play offs and we have still got to play Rotherham, so that is the incentive to go and get a result at Barnet and Rotherham will be a cup final now. I still think there is a chance to make the play offs, we are not out of it because you see this league and how it changes."
