Rosler: We need to end the match with no regrets

16 January 2018

Uwe Rosler wants his side to come away from the King Power Stadium on Tuesday with no regrets as Fleetwood Town face Leicester City in the Emirates FA Cup third round replay.

Both sides played out a 0-0 draw ten days ago at Highbury, with Rosler’s side dominant against the 2016 Premier League champions.

But with the match now at The Foxes’ home ground, the German accepts the challenge is different, but not one that his players should fear.

“It’s a nice pressure, you can only win, you can’t lose,” stated Rosler.

“You go there with energy and will to make something unbelievable things happen.

“I believe that they fancy themselves to play through the lines, to push us back and to cause us big problems and they probably will.

“But if we play our game, focus on us and if we are doing our jobs really well, we can cause any opposition a problem.

“Why don’t we go to the King Power and have a go and have no regrets afterwards.”

A bumper away following is set to back Rosler’s troops on Tuesday night, with chairman Andy Pilley also paying for the Cod Army to travel to the match.

“What a great day out for our club and our supporters it will be,” added Rosler.

“You go there with energy and will to make something unbelievable things happen. We just want to make the supporters proud with our performance.”

Two new signings – Paddy Madden and Toumani Diagouraga – who scored at the weekend against Southend United on their debuts, are both ruled out as they are cup-tied.

“Today there were five strikers training because of this. If one slips up, the next one is in line. That will only make us better.

“But we have Gethin Jones available for selection – he can play."
