Hume pleased to be back playing

Striker talks ahead of Saturday showdown against Dale

Fleetwood Town’s latest recruit Iain Hume admitted it was just nice to play football again. 

The Canadian international, who has spent a frustrating spell on the side-lines at Preston North End in recent weeks, made his first start for the Cod Army on Tuesday evening and played for well over an hour as he helped Town to a 3-1 victory over Bristol Rovers. 

“I was just happy to get a game” Hume admitted 

“Don’t get me wrong I want to score goals, but to play games and be involved in the make-up of the game and the way the team plays is a big thing for me and to be involved in that goal is brilliant. 

“It was a bit ambitious to smash it out with my left to Charlie but it was a great touch a great ball and a great goal.”

And Hume expressed his delight with the way the team played after Saturday’s disappointing defeat away at Exeter. 

“It was just wave after wave from us it was complete domination.

“The best part of an hour was a proper reflection of what this team is about and if we continue playing the way we have tonight I think it’s going to be a good month.”

Fleetwood kept in touch with third placed place Chesterfield and with a game in hand on their rivals Hume admits it’s still all to play for as the squad now prepares for Saturday’s game at home to league leader Rochdale.  

He continued: “Everyone will always tell you to be the best you have to beat the best, we’re not too far behind at the moment and I think we bridged the gap a little bit.

“Saturday is a massive one, they’re going to come here and try and pass us to death, I’ve seen the way they play so it’s going to be tough but if we go and play like we did on Tuesday we have more than a chance.”

“We are where we are in the league for a reason, we obviously haven’t won every game, but when we’ve lost we have come back and won.

“We did that again on Tuesday and it’s going to be a question of how we react now because we’ve won comfortably and we’ve got a massive one on Saturday.”
