Pressley understands importance of Saturday's game

Boss wants side to improve their away form

Steven Pressley believes Saturday’s game at Crewe Alexandra is one of the Club’s most significant games of the season so far.

The Cod Army currently occupy 20th position in the third tier, and are just two points ahead of the Railwaymen at the foot of the table.

Pressley is hoping that Town can widen the gap between themselves and the teams around them with three points at Gresty Road.

He said: “The weekend’s game is one of our most significant games of the season this far, and that’s the reality of the situation because it’s a huge game.

“If we want to be a team that is looking up rather than down then these are the games we must win. It’s a game to look forward too.

“Although there’s a real feel good factor about the way we’ve played recently, the reality is that we’re in a dog fight and can’t take our eye of that.

“I’ve stressed that again to the players this week and that this is a huge game. It’s important that we start dressing our away form.

“It’s been nothing short of not good enough and we have to put that right. There’s a determination in the group to do that.

And Pressley admits Saturday’s game will be a special one for defender Joe Davis, as his Dad Steve is the man in charge of the Alex.

“I’ll have to apologise before kick off to Steve for shouting at his son on Saturday! I’m sure he’s looking forward to it though.

“Steve is a manager I really respect, and the one thing you can see from his son is that he’s had a real proper football upbringing.

“His Dad has obviously had a big influence on him as he’s a really great professional. I’m sure his Dad is really proud of him.

“All of those things will go out of the window at 3pm on Saturday, and Joe will be determined to bring success to Fleetwood.”
