Goal and assist for midfielder
Antoni Sarcevic says Town are ‘buzzing’ after beating League One side Carlisle United 2-0 at Highbury – sending them through to the Johnston's Paint Trophy northern area semi-finals.
The midfielder set up David Ball for the first goal on a wet and windy Wednesday night – in front of live Sky Sports cameras – and added a superb second to send the Cod Army safely through.
It was Fleetwood’s fourth consecutive win since defeat at Southend United in October, and Sarcevic can feel the adrenaline rushing through the squad at the moment.
“It’s four wins on the bounce now so everyone’s buzzing,” he said. “We’re playing well at the minute at confidence is high with the lads. It was nice to win at home in front of the fans once again.”
The 21-year-old put in another all-action display - skipping past two defenders before crossing for Ball to fire in the first.
“I’ve picked it up, took two on and took it to the byline, and my first thought was to put it across,” he said. “David Ball was there, doing what he does best. He finished it nicely and it was a good first goal.”
Sarcevic then added his name to the score sheet with a well-executed half volley for the second, sending the ball over Greg Fleming to perfection from Gareth Evans’ raking pass.
“It was a nice time to get the second goal,” he said. “Gazza (Evans) put it on a plate for me and it was nice to finish it off. We’re full of goals at the minute so the second was always going to come.”
Looking ahead to Saturday’s game at Northampton Town, Sarcevic is taking nothing for granted despite the Cobblers sitting bottom of League Two.
“We’re looking forward to the game on Saturday,” he added. “You don’t take anything for granted in this league, you see everyone beating everyone, so we have to go in with our good form and get a result.”
