Cresswell looking for momentum

29 October 2013

Ryan Cresswell was delighted that Fleetwood were able to get back to winning ways at York City  on Saturday, whilst returning to the team and keeping a clean sheet after being left out last Tuesday night. 

The centre back highlighted the defence's impressive performance against one of the league's most prolific forwards so far this season in Ryan Jarvis, who has netted seven so far. 

He said: "I think we looked solid throughout the team and as you say it is a fantastic result for us and it gets us back to where we belong, winning football matches.

"It is always good to get back into the team and keep a clean sheet and I think we looked very strong today.

"I thought we were well organised at the back and we kept him quiet (Ryan Jarvis) by limiting his chances to very minimal. I don't think he really had a shot which is always a pleasure for us and it is nice to see a striker that is in form going off as a substitute.

"I don't think he really created any opportunities for his side and that is something that we look to build on." 

The former Southend United man claimed the three points were valuable after grabbing them at Bootham Crescent, which can be a difficult ground for away sides.

Cresswell continued: "We have come over here and it is a good old fashioned club and the ground and everyone involved at York know what you are going to get and to walk away with three points and a clean sheet, I think it is very good.

"I have lost a couple of times here so it is always good to come and put that to bed and walk away with a win." 

Fleetwood face League 2 newcomers Newport County at Highbury Stadium next weekend as the team look to cement a place in the automatic places at least for another week. 

"They are all tough matches, but it is at Highbury and we will be looking to get the three points and to put a good show on, as we have done today and keep the momentum going into next the next game."
