Fleetwood Town defender Danny Andrew spoke to the Club following his late equaliser in the 1-1 draw away at Morecambe on Saturday afternoon.

The Cod Army made the short trip to Morecambe in the scorching heat, and it was Andrew’s curling effort on his weaker foot that cancelled out Arthur Gnahou’s opening strike midway through the first-half in the Lancashire Derby clash.

Andrew – who spoke to the media on Thursday at Poolfoot Farm – had this to say on the draw with the Shrimps.

On the heat and the match…

 “It was absolutely boiling out there! It reminded me of Croatia a bit with the heat and how hot it was out there – despite the conditions it was good that we managed to get a point for the game.

“I felt good today and I reckon it takes you 3-4 games to really get up to speed with it all and today was just very hot and it’s hard to judge where you are at as it’s not often that we will play in these types of conditions. We will feel more drained for sure.

“This a tough place to come just like many places we will go to this season. For us, it’s another point on the board and we are only three games into the new season. We just need to build on this result today and take it into Tuesday night.”

On the goal on his weaker foot…

“A few of the lads during the game and after couldn’t believe I had scored with my weaker foot. I just had to remind them that a few years ago I scored one like that against Doncaster – the same kind of shot. They’re saying it’s a fluke, but it wasn't!"

On playing against his former teammate…

“It was a good battle. It was funny because we came together, and both got booked by the referee. I just had a feeling that if we came up against each other, we would both get a card because we are both at it on the pitch, but we shook hands after so it’s all good.”

On the upcoming game against Cheltenham…

“It’s important now we rest and recover. Tonight and tomorrow, we will be making sure we get enough fluids in our bodies and enough food before Monday where we will looking tactically into the game against Cheltenham.

“I think there’s difference here in terms of our resilience. We showed that by coming from behind against Plymouth and winning the match 2-1, and then today we’ve gone behind against Morecambe. Home form is going to be key to us this season – we need to improve on that front from last season, and then away from home if we can pick up results, it will help the points tally come the end of the season.”

On the fans…

“The fans were very good today! It was just non-stop chanting throughout and as players, you pick up on that stuff and especially second half, they probably sucked the equaliser in the goal.”
