ROSLER: I can't be too disappointed

20 August 2016

Town boss finds positives despite defeat.

Fleetwood Town Head Coach Uwe Rosler remained upbeat despite watching his side slip to a narrow defeat to Bolton Wanderers at the Macron Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Despite going a goal up courtesy of David Ball eleven minutes prior to half-time, the top of the table Trotters fought back through strikes from Gary Madine and Josh Vela, condemning Town to defeat.

However, the German was proud of the way his team performed against the recently-relegated Wanderers.

Rosler said:“I warned my players how they would come out in the second-half, to try and beat us up with long balls, and that's what they did, they basically still have their Championship squad.

“Game management is understandable given the age we have, I’m not blaming anybody, so in general, it was a decent performance, we tried to play football, and we did that well.”

Fleetwood matched their opponents from Greater Manchester throughout the course of the afternoon, as Rosler was pleased with how Town showed their worth.

Rosler continued: “We created chances, and I can’t be too disappointed, I don’t like losing, we don’t like losing, but the fact is, there wasn’t much of a big difference between a Championship squad and our squad.

“I think the chances we had were fair, I would have liked to have had more possession, we’d just got a grip of the game just before they, passed the ball well, unfortunately we had a chance at the end, but I’m not blaming anybody.

"I don't like losing but I thought my side put up a good display and deserved something from the game."
