Town boss reacts after draw at AFC Wimbledon...

Uwe Rosler praised his players’ spirit after his side scored a 92nd minute goal to draw 2-2 at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Conor McLaughin headed home substitute Jack Sowerby’s corner to cancel out goals from Dom Poleon and a penalty from Dean Parrett after Cian Bolger opened the scoring.

The point ensured the Cod Army remained eighth in Sky Bet League One.

“When you see the full 95 minutes, we were clearly the better team,” said Rosler.

“I think when you see how the game went, it was a game won. The amount of chances we had, and how big those chances were, means we were a little bit gutted that we didn’t put the game to bed a little earlier on.”

Wing-back McLaughlin made it two goals in two games for Fleetwood, after scoring in the midweek win over Shrewsbury.

“That’s the way we play – we are very offensive,” added Rosler.

“It was a very spirited point in the end for the players because we had been let down by the referee in Port Vale, where it was clearly a handball in their goal, today we have been let down again.

“In the penalty situation, our player was fouled but my team never gives up.

“We’re not changing our targets in both good and bad periods. We just keep going.”
