Like Long did not take the chance to push forward his cause for a start on Saturday. Allowed too many crosses in. Disappointing.

Cian Bolger 6

Made some strong blocks and gave his all. Did his cause no harm.

Nathan Sheron 6

Back in defence but he has impressed more in midfield in recent weeks.

Eddie Clarke 5

Like Jones should have stopped more crosses and did not take his chance.

Harrison Biggins 6

Much improved in the second half, got on the ball more, showed more attacking intent.

James Wallace 6

Like Biggins a better second half. Needs to show more of that ingenuity throughout the 90.

Ryan Taylor 6

Set-piece delivery always a threat. Easing his way back from injury.

Kyle Dempsey 7

Got his goal and looked a threat on the attack. You could tell he wanted to fight for the shirt and push his way into contention.

Ged Garner 6

Gave away the penalty, will learn from and worked hard after to make up for his error.

Long 4.5

Barely posed a threat and did not take his chance to force his way into contention. A disappointing showing.

Lewis Baines on for Clarke 44 6 One of Town's promising youngsters. Bright showing.

Conor McAleny on for Long 46 7 Made a real difference when he came on. Could tell his a Championship class player playing against a League Two side. Just needs to stay fit.

Dean Marney on for G Jones 46 6 Easing way back from injury showed flashes of class, like McAleny gave Fleetwood an edge in the second half.
