Head Coach challenges Town ahead of Gills match

Uwe Rosler is challenging his side to be ‘aggressive with and without the ball’ when they face Gillingham at Highbury Stadium on Saturday.

Fleetwood return home after away games at Chesterfield and Millwall, with the latter being a narrow 2-1 defeat last week. However, the Cod Army Head Coach is urging his side to get back to their best.


“I think we have a squad of players who, on the day, can beat anyone in our league,” said Rosler.

“In League One I see a lot of talented players, but I also see inconsistency and mistakes. And with that we have to focus on us how to beat Gillingham this week.”

“We have to minimise our mistakes all over the pitch – not only in defence but also in midfield and up front.”

The German is contemplating making changes to his side, but has admitted he is undecided in a couple areas across the pitch.

“I have not made up my mind about the team in general.

“There are one or two positions which I will probably think about until Saturday morning and in general I think it is important that we are aggressive with the ball and without the ball like we were against Peterborough.

“This will put us in a position to compete all over the pitch – not only defence but in midfield and up front.”

Rosler was keen to praise opposite number Justin Edinburgh in his pre-match press conference, hailing the Gills boss for his managerial career.

“I think he worked himself up, similar to how I did.

“He earned himself the move to the next level with the work he’s done and now we compete in the same league. I think Gillingham are a progressive club with good resources and a club who are pushing to get into the top six.
