Fleetwood Town head coach Charlie Adam reflects on the 2-1 loss at home to Cheltenham Town on Good Friday.

Ryan Graydon’s late goal wasn’t enough to earn Town a share of the spoils as Aidan Keena restored the Robins lead late on to earn Cheltenham all three points after Liam Sercombe’s earlier opener.

Here’s what the Fleetwood head coach had to say on the defeat...

“We’re extremely disappointed. We asked the crowd to come and give us energy and enthusiasm and they gave us that but unfortunately we never performed.

“That wasn’t what we expected, that wasn’t what we as Fleetwood Town want from the players since we’ve come into the club.

“I just said listen lads [at half-time] this is not what we’re expecting. We never really got to grips with the game, we couldn’t deal with them physically and we didn’t want to do the hard yards.

“We’ll look at it, we’ll dissect it and listen we’re hugely disappointed in terms of the result. It’s a little setback for us but we have to go again on Monday.”

On an improved second half response...

“I thought the lads that came on made an impact on the game. I thought they showed good energy at the top end of the pitch and it was a little bit of a positive on a tough afternoon. 

“Ryan Graydon got another goal, so again positives for individuals but you cannot allow teams a 45 minute head start.

“When you score a goal and you’re high that’s when you’re vulnerable and we were vulnerable. 

“What I will say is with the reaction from the supporters and also the players, they tried and we were unlucky probably not to get a point at the end.”

A opportunity to respond on Monday...

“It’s a big game, going to Oxford is going to be tough, they’re a good side and they’ve got good players.

“I believe these players can go and get us a result. The team that we put out will be full of energy, it will be intense. 

“We’ll go and we’re going to have a go, we’ve got nothing to fear. We’ll go and you’ll see a different Fleetwood Town.

"We’ll have to go and get three points because that’s ultimately what’s on the line. We have make an impact in the next six games to really affect what’s going on above us.

“We have to win football matches, if it’s home or away we have to win football matches. We’ll have a right go for the next six games.”
