Fleetwood Town defender Danny Andrew spoke to the media ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League One match away at Bristol Rovers.

Andrew - who has played under both managers who will be in the dugouts at Memorial Stadium - has featured in Town's last five matches, and will be looking to pick up all three points on the road this weekend to put a gap between others around the bottom half.

The left-back re-joined Fleetwood back in June 2019 and was one of Joey Barton's first signings that summer, and now the defender knows this weekend is all about Fleetwood claiming the victory.

Here's what Danny had to say ahead of the game...

“The mood is good around the group. We’ve scored three goals in our last few home games and that was one thing we wanted to work on and working on that has put us in a good run of form.

“I don’t think we’ve changed too much. In games you to do get a little bit of luck with some of the goals, you may put more of an emphasis on scoring and concentrate a little bit harder when you get a chance.

“We’ve had games where we’ve had good chances, and I will even speak for myself in that to score goals but we've failed to hit the target and then in other games, it could bounce off your hip and for us. It’s just about taking chances and keep scoring."

On the squad and the expectations...

“If we look back at our start in the league, we’ve obviously drawn too many games and could have done with converting some of those into wins but other than that, I think it has a been a solid start to the season.

“I think we have a good squad. We have players who are here to work hard and to also fight for the three points every week and those who will put their bodies on the line. I do believe we have the players here to go and have a successful season.

“A successful season for us is not having a repeat of last season. We don’t want to be where we were and as the season gets deeper, we will look back at the targets that we set and see where to go from there.

“I am probably playing it down from how we feel inside the camp, but we have everything in place, but we just need things to go right or us.”

On Bristol and working under former boss, Joey Barton...

“For us, it doesn’t matter if Bristol are above us or below us, it’s a game that’s away from home and one we know that is going to be tough. We know if we can pick up the win, we can put some distance between ourselves, but the bigger picture is the game and wanting to get the win.

“With him, [Joey Barton] he played me in every game so I can’t argue against that, and he got me playing good football the season. I know he will be fully focused on his team and making sure Bristol Rovers pick up all three points on Saturday, I am sure of that.”
