Head coach looks ahead to Swindon Town match

Uwe Rosler says he sees a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ with Fleetwood Town’s current injury situation ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League One fixture with Swindon Town.

Nathan Pond and Martyn Woolford returned to the bench for last Saturday’s match at Bury, with Rosler also revealing striker Wes Burns is back training on the grass.

Rosler’s side host the Robins at Highbury on Saturday after their impressive win over Milwall last weekend.

“We are in a very good position,” said Rosler.

“I always said that I saw a light in the tunnel by getting players back fit. You saw [Nathan] Pond on the bench [last weekend against Bury].

“Wes Burns is back on the grass and Martyn Woolford is back on the grass and played minutes on Tuesday against a good Championship side. I’m optimistic not only for Swindon but for the run in.”

Town’s head coach was also keen to point out that Town are still aiming for 74 points as an initial target with seven games remaining.

“We are looking for 74 points and we want to get them as quick as possible and then we see what is possible after that,” added Rosler.

“There is seven games to go, and we want to see how quick we can get to 74 points. When we get there, we will aim higher.

“We conceded too many goals in the beginning of the season – I’ve said that before – so we had to find a way to balance our play. It made a run like we had possible.

“Lately we have been a little bit short up front because of strikers not being available to us. Our strength was the rotation system up front – that caused a lot of problems.”

During his pre-match press conference at Poolfoot Farm, Rosler also issued a message to supporters after speculation in the media this week.

“It’s a shame I have to say something about what is on certain web blogs.

“The club is not approached by anyone, I have not been approached by anyone. It is fake news. Players and staff are still very committed. I have another year contract – everything else is speculation.”
