Club captain Jordan Rossiter has called on everyone at the club to come together to haul Fleetwood Town out of the League One relegation battle.

Town face Doncaster Rovers this weekend at Highbury Stadium and the club captain has issued a rallying call to everyone at Highbury Stadium - get behind us!

He said: “We are fighting for our lives, we have a great set of lads, great set off staff and we are all pulling together to try and get ourselves out of this position we find ourselves in. I can promise the supporters the lads will all be together and ready to go again on Saturday.

“The young players are doing unbelievably well. Fair play to these players who are standing up and playing like men at the moment in a real difficult patch - but they are working so hard and I’m sure we will get what we deserve in the coming weeks.

“My message to the supporters is just stick with us - we need you now more than ever.

“Results might not be showing it at the moment, but I promise every supporter the players are putting everything in for the badge and to make sure the club stay in League One this season. We have got the squad to get out of this, and if we stick together, we will get through this."

Town have been without 14 senior players in recent weeks, with a number of the club’s U23s stepping up to play in what has been an incredibly tough run of away games and Rossiter feels the youngsters have stepped up and have more than enough to get the job done.

“Everyone to a man, from the youngest to the oldest have been brilliant,” insisted the former Liverpool and Rangers man.

“We need the fans now as much as they can. Let’s be honest it’s been a difficult season, but we have nine games to go now, six of them at home, and we need everyone to pull together to get ourselves out of this now.

“If we can get Highbury bouncing like we know it can be, it will make a massive difference between now and the end of the season.

“The manager has been brilliant since he took over, he’s really improved us even though the results aren’t showing that at the  moment but I’m convinced we will turn."
