Ross Wallace on the defeat to Luton

16 February 2019

Fleetwood Town midfielder Ross Wallace spoke after his side narrowly lost 2-1 at home to the Sky Bet League One leaders.

It was a tight affair for majority of the match, but it was a set piece that opened the scoring for the visitors. George Moncur scored from 20-yards out just before half-time, with Pelly MPanzu getting the second after the interval.

Paddy Madden scored a late consolation goal with minutes to spare, but it just wasn’t to be Fleetwood’s afternoon on home soil.

Here are the best quotes from Wallace’s post-match interview…

On the game against Luton…

“I don’t think there was much in the match and it was one where both teams in a way cancelled each other out. I think with their confidence being high at the minute, it just showed through in the end.

“Luton are a physical side, they are well organised with everybody knowing their jobs. They play a similar formation to us and it is a little marker for us to see what we can achieve, and maybe use this as we move forward.

“There was some real class in their goal from the free-kick and then the one that went through Alex Cairns – who has been absolutely excellent for us this season – was very unfortunately.

“We are really happy with our performance and that just shows we aren’t too far away from being up there.”

On the fine margins and the late goal for the Cod Army…

“It’s fine margins in this game and that is why Luton are top of the league table. They have that bit of quality and when you have the two, thing’s seem to go your way. We competed and I think the changed in shape and what we have been doing in the last few week is working for us.

“Paddy is on fire at the moment with 18 goals to his name. It is important that we keep giving him the service because his confidence is high and we know with our group that we have goals throughout with Ched [Evans], Wes [Burns] and Nadders [Nadesan]. It’s important we get more control in games, create chances as more than likely, those guys will score.”

On the next couple of games…

“We aren’t too far off the play-offs, but we might have to go on a crazy run of wins to get there but we are confident that we can do that. It will be difficult but in the meantime with the change of formation and with the group of players, we hopefully can kick on and win as many games as possible from now until the end of season.

“Burton will be a tough but after the win away at Bradford, we go there full of confidence knowing we are in good form away from home.”
