Skipper speaks to club website after Morecambe game and previews Easter fixtures

Mark Roberts believes Fleetwood Town know what they have to do and that they will do it accordingly in the final run in of the season. 

Fleetwood Town made a dream start against Morecombe as they took the lead from a very early goal by Antoni Sarcevic. Morecombe saw this and they put up a fight with Mark Hughes who scored a header in the first half. An unfortunate coincidence occurred as the visitors took the lead through the unlucky payee Nathan Pond. A late goal by Iain Hume secured the point for Town five minutes from full-time.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Roberts said: “We took the lead and got ourselves in a strong position and then we gave two sloppy goals away. The lads, credit to them, they fought back hard and got the equaliser and on another day we could have pushed hard and won the game.

“They set up was quite defensive but we were able to break them down more than we probably should have done and could have done.

“Hume had one cleared off the line in the first half and it could have been a different story if that goes in.”

Charlie Taylor made an excellent defensive header in the final moments of the game which gained praise from players around the team especially Roberts who stated:

“It was a great awareness by him to get back on the line. 

“Charlie has done brilliant for us to save the day and you never know where that point could take us.”

The skipper stated that the club will have to play their best for the rest of the season in order to gain that last automatic promotion spot but also thinks that the players of Fleetwood Town have what it takes to do it. 

He continued: "We’ve got to concentrate on ourselves.

“We have to win all four games we are playing in, that’s what we’re prepared to do and that’s what we will do.

“Easter weekend is big in any league and it normally plays a massive part in the way the season unfolds and if we can collect maximum points which we are going out to do and we will see where that puts us.”

Mark and his fellow team mates are in action next on Good Friday against Cheltenham Town. For all ticket information for the game pleaseclick here
