Cod Army Report: Fleetwood 3 Bristol Rovers 1

The defeat on Saturday was a huge disappointment for Fleetwood but we returned to winning ways on Tuesday with a 3-1 win over Bristol Rovers at Highbury.

Much like some of our recent games there wasn't really much going on and there wasn't much danger of anything happening either but a mistake from Bristol Rovers gave us an opening to take the lead and we didn't pass it up.

Tony Parkes should have done better with Iain Hume's pass but a failure to do so sae the ball fall to Antoni Sarcevic and he made no mistake in beating Steve Mildenhall in the Bristol Rovers goal.

A second came before half time too. Josh Morris delivered a corner, which Mark Roberts turned home.

Half Time: Fleetwood 2 Bristol Rovers 0

Hume's loan with the Cod Army already looks like it'll be one that his quality will shine through for us, perhaps he'll make the difference between us getting into League 1 and staying where we are? His quality was brought in to help and that seems to be working.

The Cod Army's third goal, early in the second half, was again involving the Preston loanee. His pass picked out Charlie Taylor who then found David Ball who scored our third.

Parkes made up for an earlier error when he cleared of the line as Nathan Pond and Roberts again looked to add to the scoreline.

Had Matt Harrold been as clinical with his finish as he had worked hard in the build up to creating himself a chance Bristol Rovers would have pulled one back but he put his effort wide.

Bristol Rovers did pull one back in the end though.

Ellis Harrison came on and headed home from a Lee Brown corner, with Chris Maxwell producing a brilliant save late on to deny Bristol Rovers a second.

It was a game we needed to win if we wanted to maintain serious automatic promotion hopes, these aren't the types of games that we have been winning this season though so this is a good hurdle to overcome.

Consistency will be the key to the rest of our season, find this and a top three finish could still come.
