Rosler: It was a fair point

Head Coach pleased with response to early setback

Uwe Rosler felt Fleetwood Town's point at Northampton Town this afternoon was a fair one.

The Cod Army came from behind in their opening Sky Bet League 1 fixture of the season at Sixfields Stadium when a Victor Nirennold header cancelled out an unfortunate Chris Neal own goal.

And Rosler, who took charge of his first game for the Cod Army since his appointment as Head Coach, believed his side showed a good reaction after going behind.

"It is a fair result in my opinion," said Rosler.

"We started the game reasonably well and with the first shot on goal, they scored.

"We needed a few minutes to adapt to the situation.

"We started to pass the ball and had some very good counter attacks and very good transition play.

"We had good opportunities in and around the box without having clear-cut chances.

"At half-time we changed a few things and at 1-0 down, it hot conditions, credit to the boys because they started the second half and dominated the game.

"We had more possession and shots on target than them and overall I think it was a fair point for both teams."

Nirennold grabbed the equaliser with a header at the far post following a Bobby Grant cross on the right.

It was Frenchman's first goal for the club, and Rosler was happy to see one of his midfielders get on the scoresheet.

"I was happy for Victor," said Rosler.

"Hopefully now that goal gives him more belief, and straight after the goal he had another chance.

"We need to be playing football that way. We need midfielders who believe they can score goals."
