Lucketti: We will remain grounded

20 April 2014

Assistant boss looks ahead to Easter Monday clash against Wycombe Wanderers

Chris Lucketti has urged Fleetwood to remain grounded as the race for promotion heats up over the Easter period. 

Good Friday’s 2-1 victory over Cheltenham moved Town to within touching distance of the automatic promotion places however Lucketti insists Town must remain focused on themselves. 

“It’s important we just stay focused, concentrate on ourselves and take each game as it comes."

Its back to home comforts on Monday as Town host Wycombe Wanderers, who are located at the opposite end of the table to Town but Lucketti isn’t taking league positions for granted as he aims for maximum points from two games in four days.  

“This period is massive, there can be a big swing in points with two games in four days and we’ve certainly started off on the right footing with the three points at Cheltenham, but now we need to reinforce those three points with a home performance.

“We’re expecting a tough challenge, as we do in every game  

"Whether you’re playing a team at the top or teams at this stage of the season who are fighting to stay in the league they are very tough games and we certainly won’t be treating Wycombe with any disrespect because we know it will be tough. 

"It’s vital we get the support of the crowd, as we have all season. It’s going to be a real tough game and we all need to pull together, the players, staff, the fans, everyone. We need to give it everything to make sure we get the three points that we need."

Reflecting on Friday’s victory, Lucketti was delighted with the spirit and desire shown from the entire squad as they ground out a vital three points. 

He continued: “It was a terrific three points, it was a battle, it wasn’t pretty it was nervy but I think it was typical of a number of games across the Football League (around this time of year.) Second half we really stuck at it, got our goals and defended for our lives. 

"They asked questioned of us , certainly in the last 10-15 minutes and all the lads were getting their head in where it hurts and getting those vital blocks which all goes together in getting the nice three points. “

Lucketti also reserved special praise for loan duo Iain Hume and Josh Morris whose effort proved pivotal in securing the comeback. 

“Humey has done great since he’s come in. He’s won us the penalty which has got us back in the game and Sarc has finished it off great. 

"It was great to see Josh on the score sheet as well. He works ever so hard for the team and he’s been a breath of fresh air to be honest since he’s come in, he’s took his goal well and he’s getting better and better with every game."

The ticket office will be open from 9am tomorrow morning for any fans that have no purchased tickets for the game.
