Club captain Nathan Pond has penned the following message to the Cod Army ahead of two important home games this week.
"We are looking forward to tomorrow night’s game now with new enthusiasm after a really positive session on the training ground this morning.
Barry Nicholson and Dave Lucas are the perfect pairing to take charge in the short term as they understand the players and have the respect which will be needed to get us out of this difficult patch.
The run of results has been disappointing for us all and as a squad we’d like to thank Uwe Rosler for a memorable season last year, it’s one we’ll all always remember.
We've now had time to refresh and get our minds together for Tuesday's game and we want to look forward and move on as a team.
Baz and Dave are now in charge and all the places in the team are up for grabs, something which was noticeable in training on Monday.
Most importantly we need the fans behind us now. They were great against Shrewsbury when we got to 1-1 and you could see that on the pitch, and we know that we have two big home games coming up – so we need their support.
We have two home games coming up, and we need the points – there's no doubt about that. We want to win every game, especially the home games and our form at home hasn't been the best and we need to turn that around on Tuesday against Portsmouth.
As players we know that we need to pick up results, and are determined to do so for everyone at the club, especially the supporters. Stick with us, we are confident together we can all turn this around."
