Skipper preview final match of regular season
Nathan Pond has hailed this season as ‘unbelievable’ ahead of Sunday’s Sky Bet League One fixture with Port Vale at Highbury.
Town’s captain has played in eight different divisions with the Cod Army – a world record – and that could be extended if results go the way of Uwe Rosler’s side on Sunday.
A win for Town and a defeat for Bolton at home to Peterborough would see Fleetwood promoted to English football’s second tier.
“Since I’ve been here I have achieved so much and have loved every minute,” said Pond.
“This season especially is a highlight for me as we had that unbeaten run.
“To do that in this league is huge and to possibly end the season with automatic promotion is unbelievable.”
Port Vale did pick up the three points in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, and Pond is aware of how difficult the match will be.
“It will be a tough game on Sunday,” added the 31-year-old.
“Both teams are looking for a win and that creates a really exciting atmosphere.
“We know our fans will turn up in numbers and we hope to make them proud by getting the three points this Sunday.”
“We now have a fantastic stadium and unbelievable training facilities, we used to train in the local park and now we have Poolfoot which is fantastic.
“He [Andy Pilley] has done so much for the team over the years so we all hope to repay him by getting promoted to the Championship, mixing it with big teams that have premiership experience and hopefully proving we can compete.”
