Rossiter: We know we have to win our home games

Midfielder Jordan Rossiter spoke to the media after he played the full 90 minutes in Fleetwood Town's 2-1 loss to Charlton Athletic at Highbury Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The club captain has played a vital part in the squads' recent run of form in the heart of the midfield but unfortunately Fleetwood just fell short as Jonathon Leko’s first half goal put the Addicks ahead, Danny Andrew levelled things up, but it wasn't enough as Jayden Stockley's goal with 20 minutes to go meant Charlton took maximum points.

Here's what he had to say:

On the result...

"It's disappointing, we wanted to come here and get the three points for the fans but unfortunately we weren't good enough, we have come off the back of two away draws but we know we have to win our home games, we were really off the pace.

"As a team we weren't good enough, in the first half we were poor and the second half we huffed and puffed, in football you're going to have injuries and suspensions, it's going to be a long old season for everyone in the league and as a team we know that as well because in the end we have no excuses for today."

On taking responsibility...

"We need to be better and start picking up wins, we weren't good enough and we are miles better then how we were today but in the end it's just disappointing how we played but we know we have to keep positive as we know we have a really good set of lads here.

"We have a really good set of young lads, every lad in there even the older ones are proper, it's a solid dressing room to be in as everyone pushes everyone every single day, I'm enjoying being captain and I'm enjoying the responsibility but in the end I will start to enjoy it a bit more if we start winning games."

On the bounce back ability...

"We know we're going to be ready when we come back to Highbury in two weeks again, we just struggle with the little details and there might be a sense of naivety but as the season goes on we're all going to learn and gain valuable experience and it'll help us to iron out these mistakes we are making because in the end the quality is there."

"We have played 10 games now, we have only won two games where we all know it's not good enough but there has still been some positive signs, we have a tough cup game on Tuesday night against Barrow where we know it's a good chance to put things right.”
