Rosler: We are making real progress

10 September 2016

Boss content with his squad after thrilling draw

Uwe Rosler thought that his side fought valiantly in their 2-2 draw against Charlton Athletic and was in the end pleased with a point.

The Fleetwood Town Head Coach admitted he felt his side could have been more ruthless when leading,  but was happy his players gave it their all throughout the 90 minutes.

“It tastes bitter. I have no complaints; the boys gave it everything,” said Rosler.

“There was a lot of good things, especially at the beginning of the game, we were terrific because it was a fight, with both teams fighting.

 “I saw some tired legs out there but they gave me everything and I have no complaints what so ever.”

But, even though Rosler thought his side were improving, he said that there are points that the side will have to take on to keep this current form for the rest of the season.

“In a football club you have to build and build until you start becoming difficult to beat and when you are there, you always have to try to improve,” said Rosler.

“I think today was an improvement, especially in the beginning when we passed the ball with purpose and passed the ball between the lines.

“We were great with the ball and we built it up from the back but there was too many long balls going forward from our side.

"I'm delighted with the progress we are making, you have to remember where we have come from.”

Rosler had nothing but admiration for the two goals from Town but he thought that the side could have finished Charlton off before they gained momentum.

 “They were brilliant. The first goal came with very good momentum,” said the Head Coach.

“It is always good when you have good play from which you can score and that’s what we did and we should have scored again straight after that.

“Great goal from Chris Long then they came back into the game, they scored and then Chris had another great chance but Ball’s finish was top draw.

“That was a big improvement but we couldn’t get a second, or third goal, which would have been killer for them.”

In the end, he admitted that the result was a fair one and even though his side lost out on the win in the late stages of the game, they will move on.

"In the second half, we were really starting to dominate them but overall, it was a fair result," said Rosler. 

"We will move on; it is another point on the board.”
