Fleetwood boss: it's only half time

Fleetwood Town manager Graham Alexander says it's only half time in the Cod Army's play off game against York City.

Town take a 1-0 lead into the second leg, after their match last night, which was postponed from Saturday because the Bootham Crescent pitch was waterlogged.

Alexander told the club's official website: “We were really pleased with the performance and obviously the result tonight.

“The clean sheet was very important and it is going to be just as difficult on Friday.

“It’s only half time in a cup-tie between two good teams we need to make sure we produce the same performance on Friday.

“You can see the focus inside them, you can see that in training and with not playing on Saturday there was a lot of pent up emotions and aggression and they wanted to play.

“You could see that in the way they played tonight and if we have to do it all again, we need to prepare right and make sure we are at it on Friday.”
