FLEETWOOD Town chairman Andy Pilley launched a Twitter blast at his under-performing team following Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Plymouth Argyle.

The Highbury chief wrote: “Far from happy with that. Lots of players not up to standard.

“We can’t give away a two-goal start. One way or another we will be better. I hate losing. Not being messed around by certain people any more.

“We look after staff exceptionally well. Certain deluded individuals should remember that before it is too late for them.”

The chairman posted again shortly afterward to clarify that his remarks were not aimed at manager Graham Alexander.

He wrote: “To avoid any confusion, my issues are not with GA.

“He is doing an excellent job.”

Pilley was unavailable to comment further on his remarks. Town have won only one of their last seven League Two games, denting their play-off hopes.
