Fleetwood Town have guaranteed themselves at least a play off spot in the battle for promotion from the Skybet League Two. The Cod Army came away from their Good Friday fixture at Cheltenham Town with a hard fought 2-1 win, which confirms their play off place, after a superb season.
A penalty from Antoni Sarcevic and a 66th minute winner from Josh Morris saw Town come from behind after first half goal from Jamie Cureton had put the hosts in front, as the Cod Army hung on for a vital win, in their pursuit for automatic promotion. Fleetwood’s win puts the pressure on the thee sides above them in the hunt, with Graham Alexander’s side now three points behind Rochdale and Chesterfield, and five behind leaders Scunthorpe United. Alexander then stated his delight to BBC Radio Lancashire, with the former Preston North End stalwart stating.
“We put ourselves on the back foot with our first-half showing and we had to dig deep to get three points.
“The players did that and it was great to see because the second half was much improved from the first.
“Players always win games. It’s not what we [managers] do. They all showed the right spirit and that’s all it had to be – more spirit and more tempo.”
Fleetwood’s next fixture is a home game against relegation threatened Wycombe Wanderers on Easter Monday.
