Rosler on the draw with Scunthorpe

Head Coach admits the Iron had the late momentum

Fleetwood Town Head Coach Uwe Rosler hopes that his side can learn a lot from Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Scunthorpe United at Highbury.

Goals from Eggert Jonsson and David Ball put the Cod Army in command, but Graham Alexander’s Iron’s fought back with two quick-fire strikes from Tom Hopper and Kevin Van Veen to earn themselves a share of the spoils. 

Rosler rued the short period of time when Town allowed their opponents from Lincolnshire time to convert two efforts into goals, when FTFC were comfortably in charge of the fixture.   

Following the conclusion of Fleetwood’s first home game of the new campaign, Rosler reflected on the point to the club’s official website. 

Rosler said: “We have to be fair and say in the last 15 minutes, they had more momentum that we had earlier in the game, we did a lot of good things today, with the right mentality, grinding out the result, but leading 2-0, we have to be slightly disappointed.

“We looked very good at some stages of the game, we looked like a threat going forward, and when we got the ball into the box.

“But defensively, we switched off for their first goal. If their first goal doesn’t go in, then we can ride out the result and get the win.”

Despite the dropped points in frustrating circumstances, the German Head Coach is confident that his playing squad can come back stronger, with a double header of fixtures against Oxford United and Bolton Wanderers coming up for the men from the Fylde Coast.

Rosler continued: “It is still all to play for, we have just started, and it is a long process. We have a big amount of young players, and they will learn as they go on. 

"The good thing is now, we have a day off, the momentum is important, not just for me and the players, but for everyone connected with the club.”
