Pond ready to put Saturday's defeat behind.

Nathan Pond insists Fleetwood Town's players have already put Saturday's disappointing defeat at Rochdale behind them.

A goal apiece from Matthew Lund and substitute Steve Davies was enough to give them a win despite Town being level for majority of the game through a Bobby Grant penalty.

But after being called into training by Head Coach Uwe Rosler on Sunday to watch the game back and talk through the performance, skipper Pond says the squad are already looking ahead.

“It was a poor performance from the lads, we started sloppily and we paid the price for that. The second half was a bit better but from our point of view we conceded two poor goals and they were quite identical to be honest, we just have to pick ourselves up now and move on.

"We came in on Sunday and spoke about what went wrong, it was good for us to get it out of our system and we are now ready to focus on putting things right next weekend."

Boss Rosler was less than impressed with the side’s first half performance, saying it was something they haven’t come to expect over the last seven games.

However, Pond believes that Rochdale were good for their although felt he could have had a goal himself.

He explained: “We have been on a good run of form and confidence has been high, we knew that Rochdale were bottom of the league and they are a much better team on paper and they shown that today so credit to them.”

“I should have scored probably on Saturday, a near post header off a cross, I glanced it too much and I should have got more of my forehead on it.”

“Obviously all the lads were disappointed on Saturday, but we are now over it and looking to work hard this week."
