Evans opens league account

Gareth Evans has stated that hard work was the key to the side's victory

Fleetwood Town winger Gareth Evans has stated that hard work was the key to the side's victory over Bury on Saturday. Evans, 25, bagged the winner in the 2-1 comeback win over the Shakers and believes Town's performance merited the 3 points.



“I thought we played fantastically well and were dominant throughout. We were very unlucky to go into the interval a goal behind but that is just the way football goes sometimes. At half time the Manager instructed us to go out in the 2nd half and keep playing the way we were in the 1st and we came away with the 3 points.”


Before Evans completed the comeback, the Cod Army reached level terms thanks to a wonderful strike from Antoni Sarcevic and Evans has heaped praise on his team-mate.


“He has been fantastic since he signed. All of the lads were excited about what he brings to the team and there is potential for him to get even better. Sarcevic's fantastic goal gave us momentum to push on for the victory and I was happy that I grabbed the winner.”


Town's performances so far this season have proven that the side has great strength in depth, especially on the wings which encourages Evans to keep his performances to the highest quality in order to maintain a place in the starting 11.


“The boss has said from the start of the season that it isn't about the 11 players that are going out on the pitch. It is about all of the players that we have in the squad. As happy as I am starting games, getting on the score sheet and contributing in other ways, it is reassuring that if there are injuries or suspensions we have quality players ready to fill in. Ryan Crowther and Matty Blair can come in and everyone can see how good they are so that helps me try to maintain my standards and those of the team.”
