Madden keen to build on back-to-back victories

11 February 2019

Paddy Madden says Fleetwood must keep building momentum after beating Bradford City 1-0 on Saturday.

Madden’s 17th goal of the season secured the points in West Yorkshire, as the Cod Army won back-to-back league games for the first time since October.

Now just five points outside of the play-off positions, Madden is keen to continue the team’s good form.

“It’s important we keep racking up the three points and then as the season comes to the end,” said Madden.

“Teams start to get nervous about us and we need to be ready if they start to slip up.

“At the same time, we don’t want to get too carried away. We will take one game at a time and I know that is an old cliché. We’ve put ourselves right back in the mix being five points off, and I can’t see why we can’t push on.”

The Irishman’s predatory instincts were again on show, as he latched onto a fine James Wallace cross, and beating Richard O’Donnell with a smart half-volley.

“It was great to get back on the scoresheet as I haven’t scored in recent weeks,” stated Madden.

“It was important that I got back doing what I do best and get what was the winner in the match.

“The ball from Waldo [James Wallace] was nice and it was one of those early balls into the box as it bent around the Bradford defenders, I managed to make a little run around the back of them and thankfully I connected with it well and it’s gone in.”
