Manager pleased with his team's efforts against Northampton Town
Fleetwood Town manager Graham Alexander was pleased to see his side get back on the winning road in League Two after a merited 2-0 victory over Northampton Town at Highbury.
Winger Gareth Evans was the Cod Army’s match winner on a blustery afternoon on the Fylde Coast, scoring either side of the break against the Cobblers.
Town have now won five of their last eight league games leaving Alexander in a happy mood heading into Tuesday’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy second leg against Chesterfield.
“We scored two good goals and kept a clean sheet so I am happy tonight,” admitted the Fleetwood boss.
“We deserved to win the game and we could have potentially scored a couple more.
“We are happy with Gareth Evans; he has come into the team and taken his chance. He played his position very well this afternoon.
“It is important that we kept our belief and focus.
“We are never going to get an easy game at this level. Northampton were well organised and they worked hard and we knew this before we went into the game.
“It was important that we attacked with real threat but it was hard for both teams with the weather conditions.
“We dealt with Northampton well and Chris Maxwell didn’t really have too many saves to make. It was a good all round performance. “
