Coyle: We'll be positive and go again

29 January 2018

Lewie Coyle says his team will go again following Saturday’s narrow 2-1 defeat to in-form Gillingham in Kent.

The defender spoke after Fleetwood Town’s 2-1 loss at Priestfield Stadium, with Tom Eaves’ 90th minute penalty goal completing a comeback for Steve Lovell’s men after Paddy Madden opened the scoring in the first half.

The defeat saw Town drop points on the road for the first time in the league since Wigan in December.

“We got ourselves into really good positions in the match,” said Coyle.

“It’s difficult to put your finger on what exactly is the cause, we’ve been on top and in control and been the better team but things started to fade.

“I don’t think it’s anything to do with fitness as I believe we are one of the fittest teams in the league – something we’ve shown.

“It is only up to us why he lost the game [on Saturday], but we need to keep together and go again next week at home to Scunthorpe."

The on-loan Leeds United defender is confident his side can move on from the last gasp defeat, ahead of a busy February period.

“That is no excuse for our performance to drop, but it did for one reason or another, but we need to get that second goal and third to kill games off in the future.

“It wasn’t to be today, but we’ll remain positive that things will be good for us.”
