Pressley: We showed great bravery this afternoon

26 March 2016

Town drew 0-0 with Chesterfield at the Proact Stadium

Fleetwood Town manager Steven Pressley was left frustrated after this afternoon’s goalless draw at the Proact Stadium against Chesterfield.

The Cod Army had chances to score in both halves but were thwarted by the Spireites, as they stayed in 19th place in the Sky Bet League One table.

Pressley made five changes to his side for the game in Derbyshire, and gave youngster Keano Deacon his Football League debut in the second half when he came on as a substitute.

Pressley said: “I’m frustrated because in our situation it’s very easy to become a percentage team and we showed great bravery today and kept playing.

“We passed the ball around and kept doing the positive things we wanted to do, and really came here to win the game.

“During the performance we created some unbelievable moments but our final shot and final decision let us down.

“When you look at our line-up today it wasn’t a line-up to come here and sit in. It was line-up to purely win the game.

“At the stage of the season we have to win games and be really, really positive in our play, and we were that but it was just the final moment.

“We’ll work on that in training this week but I was really pleased with my players and how they handled the occasion.

“Coming away from home in this league, a point in generally a good point but I wanted to come here and win and that was evident.”
