Head Coach praises players again

Uwe Rosler was delighted with his Fleetwood Town side after they continued their superb start to the season with a 2-0 win against Coventry City.

Second half goals from Chris Long and Martyn Woolford was enough to earn Rosler's side their third league win of the season on a wet afternoon at Highbury Stadium.

And Rosler praised his players for the way they adapted in the second half to earn a win they more than deserved.

“I think it was a tactical battle between two good footballing sides and Coventry asked a lot of questions from us in the first half," said Fleetwood's Head Coach.

“I think we were on the back foot more than I thought we would but we still created two or three chances and they had one.

“In the second half, we made some changes and I think the substitutes gave us a big lift.

“That is what I have always said, it is about the team, about the squad and in the end, we were worthy winners.”

Rosler feels his side's change of tactic in the second half, and introduction of substitutes Ashley Hunter, Kyle Dempsey, Martyn Woolford, really helped the side get the three points.

“I think with how the game panned out, we needed to make a change because they had too much of the ball," said Rosler.

“We needed to make sure we got on the front foot more and create more chances and I thought there was a better solution for that situation.

“Kyle did really well and of course Woolford came on, and Ash Hunter came on, which gave us a big lift.”

But Rosler is happy that his side's counter attacking and clinical striking was rewarded in the end with their second 2-0 league win on the bounce.

He added: “I think that’s our game, when you go through all of our goals this season, we have gotten seven goals out of those scenarios and that is us.

“What we have is pace, power, quality but I have to be honest, I thought Coventry was a very good footballing side.

“They put a lot of pressure on us and crossed many balls into the box and we defended very well.

“It was just a little bit too much for Coventry at times I felt, especially in the first half.”
