Jordan focused on Yeovil trip

Fleetwood look to improve away form at Huish Park

Stephen Jordan insists that the Fleetwood Town squad are focused on ending their away run on Saturday when they travel to Yeovil Town.

The Cod Army have gone seven games without a win on the road in recent weeks, with the latest setback coming at Cambridge United in the FA Cup last weekend.

Right back Conor McLaughlin will miss the game due to international duty, which means manager Graham Alexander will have to re-shuffle his pack in defence.

Jordan said: “We need to go to Yeovil and win an away game. We seem to be doing really well at home this season but no so away from home.

“It’s frustrating when you don’t win because there’s been the odd game which we’ve played well in and deserved a lot more than what we got.

“Yeovil are down there in terms of league places but they’re not going to be mugs. We need to apply ourselves rightly and win the battle which will see us hopefully get the win.”

Town bowed out of the FA Cup last Saturday at the Abbey Stadium in Cambridge, and Jordan admitted it was a below-par performance.

“We were all frustrated with our performance at Cambridge because in most games this year we’ve acquitted ourselves well, but we didn’t turn up last weekend.

“It was a horrible game to play in, but we’ve put that out of our minds now and are focusing on Yeovil.”

With McLaughlin missing, Jordan has been impressed with youngster Tyler Forbes in recent weeks, who could stake a claim to play at Huish Park.

“I suppose the manager has a few options to play right back on Saturday. He played Stephen Crainey there against Colchester and moved Danny Andrew to left back.

“Tyler has come into training the last couple of months and looked really good. He originally came in as a winger but he’s reverted to a right back and looks like he’s been playing there for years.”
