Kyle Dempsey says patience is key ahead of the MK Dons game this weekend.
Fleetwood are on the road again this Saturday as they travel to Stadium MK to face Robbie Neilson’s side in a Sky Bet League One fixture.
Dempsey – who spoke to the press on Thursday at Poolfoot Farm – is looking forward to the match, however the 22-year-old knows his side need to make the most of their chances.
“This is a game you look forward too,” said Dempsey.
“It is a nice stadium and a nice pitch to play on. You can work the ball well on it and last year was a great game to watch.
“They are a team who like to keep the ball, so it will be a game where we need to be patient. We will need to pick our moments in regard to when we go and press. You have seen how good we are on the counter attack.
“If they keep the ball at the weekend, we will be waiting for that one mistake and then we will pounce.
“Last season they used the ball well, but we came out on top with Cian Bolger scoring the header. We were solid that day and didn’t allow them to cause us problems.”
The midfielder has been ever present since signing a permanent deal in May 2017, and thinks he has developed well since the move.
“If you watch the way I play, I don’t play as a 22-year-old,” added Dempsey
“I have adapted well to the roles I have played this season, alongside other central players who have been performing well.
“I know we are classified as young players, but with the mentality that we have, we don’t show that young side.
“I have had a lot of experience in games at a young age, which I am fortunate to have, and I have to take more responsibility and be that senior player.”
