Uwe Rosler has praised midfielder George Glendon ahead of the MK Dons game this weekend, where he could make his 50th appearance for the club.

Town travel down to stadium:mk to face Robbie Neilson’s side this weekend, a game which could see Glendon reach a huge milestone in his career.

Glendon joined Fleetwood permanently back in January 2017, after having a successful loan spell from Manchester City’s Academy, and head coach Uwe Rosler thinks he should be proud of what he has achieved.

"What a great story for Glendon,” said Rosler.

“12 months ago, to the day, we played Carlisle and in that game, George Glendon put himself on the bench for the follow game against Port Vale.

"Whatever happens now, he can say he played 50 games and has been part of a successful team."

It is almost exactly a year ago when Glendon made a name for himself against Carlisle United last season, after Jimmy Ryan unfortunately sustained an injury. Since then he has shown determination and an ability to learn.

The head coach added: "With the unfortunately incident with Jimmy Ryan, Glendon came in and in 12 months he has played 50 games and made himself a career in football.

"He never gave up because in the first three months he couldn’t get a game in the team. He is always willing to learn and the way he is playing now, is really well.

"He worked on his weaknesses, he has a lot of strengths, which we have looked for, and it’s a pleasure to work with him. 

"I hope he continues, and to get even better because I feel there is far more to come from him."
