Gaffer happy to beat The Posh
Uwe Rosler was pleased with Fleetwood Town’s overall performance against Peterborough and thought that his side fought valiantly throughout the 90 minutes and deserved their 2-0 win.
Rosler was happy that his side got back to winning ways against The Posh and he thought that this performance only replicated the passion shown in training over the last ten days.
“Today we got back to winning ways,”said the Cod Army Head Coach.
“I always had a good feeling because we had a good ten days, especially this week.
“We worked on our shape and our game plan on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and I think it paid off today.”
The inclusion of Jack Sowerby was a risk which paid off as he proved his clinical nature with a goal on his starting debut and continued his form from within the youth team.
“I mean we all saw the game last week, from Peterborough against Bury, how much energy and how much talent and how much ground you have to cover to deny them and to attack them,”said Rosler.
“It wasn’t a gamble at all and I think he’s a great example for our squad, and our club, that you can get yourself in if you play well in the development games.
“Today I had no headaches before the game whatsoever because I saw it with my own eyes and I trust the quality of my staff and they completely agreed to play him.
“He did himself proud, not only because of the goal but he showed no nerves and he brought exactly what we wanted to the table.”
Rosler’s side performed on both sides of the pitch as they managed to keep a clean sheet, which the German was happy about.
“I think that was the pleasing thing for us and all credit to the players,”Rosler added.
“They were very disciplined, working in the shape, and we were aggressive. The shape helped us but in the end but it’s all about the players.
“The players were very aggressive with their approach to stop the opposition and then counter attack them quickly.”
