Cresswell focused on former club

18 October 2013

Fleetwood Town centre-back Ryan Cresswell is ready for Friday’s clash against Southend as his side look to continue their good form.

Cresswell has been in fine form this season and played a pivotal role in keeping table topping Chesterfield quiet last Saturday. Despite the draw, Cresswell believe the Cod Army could have had all three points. 

“Yeah, it was a well thought game. I think we could have pinched it in the end but a point was probably a fair result and we move on. They (Chesterfield) were well organised and they worked their way down the middle. I think they were successful in their tactics and they caught us on a set piece for the goal which is always disappointing. But I thought we were strong and definitely deserved a point.”

Fleetwood Town’s next fixture is a difficult away tie at Southend, a place where Cresswell played his football last term. 

“I’m looking forward to it. It’s a tough place to go but as long as we’re well organised it should be a good game. They’re a strong team and they’re well organised but we need to match it and we’ll come away with something,” he said.

Cresswell played under Southend manager Phil Brown last season when Town took a point home. 

“He’s a good manager. I think his records speak for themselves. His training sessions were always well drilled and, like I said, it’s going to be a tough game on Friday.

Centre-back Creswell then saluted his fellow team mates for their desire on the pitch. 

“The lads have been trying hard. The midfielders in front of us have been doing very well, both attacking and defending. It was nice to see Jon Parkin score a goal. He’s always going to score goals, it’s just a matter of getting on the pitch and doing it.”
