Coach encouraged by Town's start in the Wigan friendlyBarry Nicholson was encouraged by Fleetwood Town’s performance despite losing 4-3 to Wigan Athletic.
Despite a David Ball brace, and Bobby Grant’s penalty, the Cod Army succumbed to defeat against the Championship side in a seven goal thriller.
And caretaker manager Nicholson was pleased with the way his side went about their business, taking plenty of positives despite the result.
He said: “I thought we started really brightly, obviously getting the goal early, then we stopped doing what we were getting joy from, getting past their centre-backs, which Ashley Hunter was doing well.
“For some strange reason, we stopped doing it, and it allowed them to get a foothold into the game, when they went in front, we didn’t feel sorry for ourselves, we looked to get at them at the start of the second-half, and I think we did that.
“I feel good, obviously I’ve worked with the first team with the old manager, they have been absolutely fantastic.”
