Gaffer hoping to build on back-to-back wins

Uwe Rosler has challenged his side to continue ‘looking up the table’ after securing back-to-back wins following a 1-0 win over Chesterfield.


Conor McLaughlin’s first half strike five minutes from the break was enough for all three points at Proact Stadium for Rosler’s side.

David Ball missed two great chances in the second half and set up a tense finale but Town held on.

“We should have killed the game off,” said Rosler.

“In this league when you don’t get that second goal the last 5-10 minutes are very nervy.”


“We didn’t start the game particularly well. They could have been up in the opening stages, although they didn’t have a clear chance they had momentum.

“We adjusted and played more how we should away from – especially against a side like Chesterfield – who are really desperate like us.”

Jack Sowerby again shined for Fleetwood, creating the only goal of the night for McLaughlin.

“We combined well on the side with Jack Sowerby involved again and it was very well taken by Conor.

“I think we worked to get that momentum back but now it is up to us to keep it.

The Cod Army travel to Millwall on Saturday hoping for a third win in a row.

“I’m already thinking about Millwall. I said to the players we want to look upwards and we have to go to Millwall and get a result.”
