For our throwback feature this week, we are heading back to the 2018/19 season when Fleetwood Town hosted Doncaster Rovers in the December and came out 3-0 winners on the day.

Two goals from Paddy Madden and one from Ash Hunter sealed the points for the Cod Army as they made it seven home league games unbeaten. Madden scored a trademark glancing header at the near post after Nathan Sheron crossed the ball into the box. It was just the start they deserved.

Despite constant attacks from Doncaster, Town doubled their lead thanks to the work from Ched Evans and Hunter, who pounced on a defensive mistake from Rovers. In stoppage time, Madden made it three from inside the box to seal the win to make it seven unbeaten at home in the league.

Town XI: Cairns (GK), Coyle, Holt (J.Wallace 64’), Eastham, Evans, Madden, Morgan (C), Hunter (Burns 80’), R.Wallace, Marney, Sheron (Biggins 46’).
