FLEETWOOD TOWN

Simon Grayson’s side narrowly fell short in their Sky Bet League One clash against Charlton Athletic at Highbury on Saturday afternoon.

An end-to-end first half saw Jonathan Leko open the scoring just before the break with a strike from outside the box and despite a fantastic free-kick from Danny Andrew and several chances from Fleetwood, it wasn’t enough to maintain their unbeaten streak as substitute Jayden Stockley’s goal took the game away from Fleetwood.

In the game before, late drama saw Fleetwood Town come back to share the points in a six-goal thriller against Milton Keynes Dons at Stadium MK.

It was a thrilling first half with four goals in the first 40 minutes as Fleetwood’s Ged Garner and the Dons’ forward Scott Twine both grabbing braces and creating further chances. Twine completed his hat-trick in the second half, but the action wasn’t done yet as Dan Batty came off the bench to drill one home with one minute to go.

BARROW

Barrow’s last outing saw them come out with a 1-0 win over Mansfield Town away from home in a Sky Bet League Two fixture at the weekend.

In the game at Field Mill, Ollie Banks scored the only goal in the game after the side from Cumbria earned a penalty 10 minutes into the second half. The midfielder stepped up and slotted past Nathan bishop before Farrend Rawson saw red seeing the home side finish the game a man down.

Barrow picked up another three points in the game before that as they managed to overcome Newport County 2-1 at home. Finn Azaz opened the scoring in the game for Newport, but goals from Josh kay and Josh Gordon in the second half saw them turn the game around and pick up the win on the day.

PRE-MATCH QUOTES: DAVID DUNN

First Team Coach David Dunn spoke to the local press ahead of Fleetwood Town’s Papa John’s Trophy clash against Barrow at Holker Street this Tuesday. Here is what he had to say in his interview:

“I have fond memories of the club, I’ve got a lot of time for the people who run the club and as anyone would be, I was disappointed when I lost my job. I look back at my time there and I feel like we weren’t far off, we played 22 and drew nine, with all of those being winnable – I understand that you have to win games as a manager, and I, unfortunately, didn’t there.

“I’ve made some good friends up there that I’m sure I will be in contact with over the coming days, but it was a good and strange time for me at the club, as it was during the pandemic, the fans weren’t there to be involved, and I feel it was a difficult time for not just them but all clubs. If the fans were there during those times, maybe it would have been different."
