Rosler 'very proud' of his Fleetwood side

Head coach offers his thoughts to the media after win at Ricoh Arena

Uwe Rosler has said he is 'very proud' to be Fleetwood Town's Head Coach after Saturday’s win at Coventry.

 

His side earnt a massive three points at the Ricoh Arena, as Cian Bolger's late header gave Town a well-earned 1-0 win.

 

The win meant the Cod Army extended their unbeaten run in the league to ten games, while Coventry remained rooted to the bottom of the table. 

 

"I think we had decent control of the game," he said.

 

"In general - we had 55 per cent possession, we had 11 attempts to their five, we had five shots on target to their two, and we had nine corners and they had one - so I think the stats tell the story.

 

"We had one scary moment where they had a header from a cross and in that situation I feel a little bit sorry for Russell [Slade].

 

"When you're at the bottom of the league you need those moments to go in your favour - so the post saved us on that one.

 

"In general we stood firm and I'm very proud to be the Head Coach of that team. The mentality we've shown, not only today, but to go ten games unbeaten in the league is fantastic.

 

"To have the mentality to grind it out and stay in the game - and eventually win it at the death shows how far we've come as a team."

 

The playing surface at the Ricoh Arena had clearly suffered from hosting London Wasps' home fixtures as well as Coventry City's - meaning the pitch was quite cut up and made playing passing football difficult.

 

"It was challenging - especially for Glenno [George Glendon] - coming from the Manchester City academy he's not used to this kind of football but he did well.

 

"I think we played how the conditions and opposition allowed us to. They matched us in formation and tried to stop us playing - and they did that pretty effectively.

 

"Today we have shown our options off the bench, we have shown that we can stay in games, we have shown our fitness levels helps us win games - and to be focused and not make sloppy mistakes - all those factors help tell the story of how we've got to where we are this year."
