Referee:

When Fleetwood beat Chesterfield last week, but went out on aggregate in the Johnstone's Paint Cup to miss out on the Wembley final, Graham Alexander said that this disappointment had to be taken into the League 2 season and promotion secured.

Since then we'd lost to Mansfield and we followed that up with a 4-0 defeat, in fact hammering, at Highbury against Plymouth on Tuesday.

Had it not been for Chris Maxwell in the Cod Army goal when he saved to deny Reuben Reid Plymouth would have taken the lead, it didn't make much difference though as within seconds of that save Reid put Plymouth ahead anyway.

Maxwell was beaten once more, this time by Matt Parsons, but the bar came to our rescue.

The closest we came, not that Plymouth goalkeeper Jake Cole was that troubled, was a 20 yard effort from Gareth Evans that didn't cause too much trouble.

Half Time: Fleetwood 0 Plymouth 1

Alexander would have had some strong half time words with the players but within minutes of the second half getting underway Luke Young put Plymouth further ahead, a big deflection helped take his effort past Maxwell though.

The Cod Army's chance to come back into the game came when Antoni Sarcevic was through one on one with Cole but the goalkeeper did well to deny Sarcevic and with that chance passing us by the likelihood of us coming back evaporated too.

Defensive mistakes again, as in not defending basically, allowed Maxime Blanchard to head home the third for Plymouth.

A 4-0 defeat was confirmed when Conor Hourihane smashed home a freekick, again not really anything Maxwell could do though.

Full Time: Fleetwood 0 Plymouth 4

Not having too many more chances to slip up was something I said before the game and we've used up yet another of our lives on Tuesday.

If the top three don't take advantage of this then they'll be as sloppy as we've been this season, while we can still make automatic promotion I'll want this.

It's getting towards the time now where I'm planning more for the play offs though and with literally a defeat or two the maximum we could now afford, which I'm not sure if all we'll suffer, we could be relying on others to slip up too.

Not the time to wobble in the league now is it. It's still close enough for the auto aim if we get our butts back into gear.
