Season review: March

20 May 2015

Saturday 7th March is a day Town fans will never forget

Fleetwood kicked-off March with a 2-2 draw under the Highbury lights against Scunthorpe United.

Town got off to the perfect start with the game just three minutes old as Jamie Proctor benefited from Nick Haughton’s free kick to power home a header.

But Garry McSheffrey levelled the score for the Iron on the stroke of half time, when he drilled a right-footed shot into the corner.

Josh Morris restored the advantage for the hosts with twenty minutes to play when he curled the ball into the top corner from the edge of the penalty area.

The lead was short-lived however, only for George Evans’ hopeful drive to be deflected into the back of the home net.

Saturday 7th March is another day that the Cod Army will remember, as Graham Alexander’s side won away at Sheffield United.

With 25 minutes on the clock, Josh Morris netted Town’s opener as he unleashed an unstoppable effort into the top corner.

The lead would be doubled ten minutes prior to the interval when Nick Haughton got his name on the score sheet for the first time with a long-range effort which caught keeper Iain Turner out.

Matt Done pulled a goal back after 39 minutes, but the visiting Fleetwood hung onto claim three points in Yorkshire.

A week later, and Fleetwood would keep up their unbeaten start to the month by securing a 1-0 win against Rochdale at Highbury.

It was Morris who proved to be the difference, as his 59th minute goal earned Town a narrow three-points against Keith Hill’s outfit.

The following Tuesday, Town welcomed relegation-threatened Coventry City, but two goals in the dying embers of the contest were enough to gain the win for the visiting Sky Blues.

Fleetwood were involved in late drama in their next encounter away at Bradford City, as Proctor and Nathan Pond netted late on to secure a 2-2 draw at Valley Parade.

Jonathan Stead and Christopher Routis had seemingly put the Bantams out of sight, but Proctor headed Forbes’ cross after 86 minutes before Pond secured a point in stoppage time as he drilled home following a scramble.

A point at home against Preston North End completed March in front of the Sky Cameras, as David Ball’s sublime chip cancelled out Daniel Johnson’s first half strike.
