Consistency the key for Town says Kelly

11 September 2017

Assistant head coach Rob Kelly says consistency is the key for Fleetwood Town ahead of Tuesday night’s Sky Bet League One match with Bury.

Town have picked up ten points from their opening five league matches, and welcome Bury who have once from six outings.

The Shakers visit Highbury looking to pick up their first away win of the season, whilst the Cod Army are yet to lose at home this season.  

“We’re looking forward to the game,” said Kelly.

“Saturday’s game with Oldham was a strange game with lots of ups and downs, which probably at the moment – with a new, young team – can happen.

“We showed a lot of character and spirit to come back twice and this is something we had last season which we have carried into the new season. We want to build on all the good things and that was a pillar of our success last year.

“The games come thick and fast in this league and that can help you get into a rhythm, but we’re used to it now.”

Lee Clark’s side impressed last season, and invested heavily in the summer bringing in new signings including Jermaine Beckford, and have strong ambitions of their own.

“They have a good squad which is very competitive, and they are also trying to find some consistency at the moment to the way they play,” added Kelly.

“They have a good manager and they have had some heavy investment and probably will be a team when they find their winning formula they’ll be challenging the top half of the table and maybe even pushing for a top six finish.

“With the schedule so busy it is important to recover well and prepare for the next game. We’ve done that the best we can, and we are fortunate here to have Poolfoot Farm which gives us the best opportunity to do that.”
