The Gazette's Fleetwood Town reporter Rosie Swarbrick analyses the performances of the players from the 5-0 win at Scunthorpe.

It was a five-star performance for Fleetwood as goals from Ched Evans, Wes Burns and Ash Hunter clinched Fleetwood's biggest ever Football League victory.

But for many it was Burns' night the attacker one of many Town men to get 9/10 at Glanford Park...

Alex Cairns 9

Three fine saves in the first half that stopped Scunthorpe pulling back. A well deserved clean sheet. He just goes from strength-to-strength.

Lewie Coyle 8

Back at right-back and as commanding as ever.

Ash Eastham 8

As solid performance as ever. Mr Consistent as always, apt on his 100th game for the club.

Craig Morgan 8

His experience showed in the opening stages, a crucial block and clearance gave Town the platform to kick on. His best performance in a Fleetwood shirt, rewarding Barton's faith with that display.

James Husband 7.5

Result wise, a dream debut. Targeted by Morris early doors but should get the confidence he has come to Town for.

Ash Hunter 9

What a goal and a thorn in Scunthorpe’s side in a wide midfield role.

Dean Marney 7

Still some loose passes but is regaining full fitness

Jason Holt 7

A quieter game but perhaps we will always mark him on that delightful Crewe cameo

Wes Burns 9

The first time he has ever scored two in a game and a statement of intent. We wanted end product and he certainly delivered at Scunthorpe. The star man.

Paddy Madden 9

No goal at his former hunting ground but still an unflappable performance. The strength of how good he was showed in that he got the biggest cheer of the night, applauded off by home fans when he was subbed.

Ched Evans 9

At times unplayable. His presence helped the other strikers excel too – four goals from four league games says it all.


Bobby Grant (for Evans, 62) 7:

Bright but lost the ball a few too many times

Conor McAleny (Hunter 70) 7:

Lively and pressed well

Chris Long (Madden 78) 7:

Looked hungry, like the other strikers
