Striker Jamie Proctor insists every result matters now as Fleetwood look to get their play-off push back on track.

Town let a chance to climb into the top six slip with defeat at the hands of Oldham Athletic last weekend.

With his former club, struggling Crawley Town, the visitors tomorrow Proctor knows a reaction is needed by both player and fans alike.

He told The Gazette: “Last weekend we looked at the game and thought we were performing well and not getting the results.

“This week it’s slightly different, we’re looking for a reaction from a disappointing result and a disappointing performance.

“We did enough to get a goal or two last weekend but over Oldham player well and we didn’t do what we’d been doing in previous weeks.

“It’s good to have another home game and to have a chance to put it right for the fans who came last week.”

League One is a tight affair with just five points between fifth and 15th spot.

And Proctor knows with the business end of the campaign approaching Town have to make every match matter.

He said:”I think we’re getting to the stage of the season where each result does mean big things.

“You get a couple of results in this league and you’re right up there with a chance to consolidate a play-off place.

“Us and quite a few other teams are winning a game, losing a game and we’ve not quite got that consistency.

“We’re still in with a chance but not as much of a chance as we’d have if we got two or three wins in a row.

“The top four have been very good, very strong but there’s two play-off places up for grabs.

“There’s probably six or seven teams who think they’ve got a chance and we’re one of those teams.”

One thing that wouldn’t go amiss for the former Crawley man is a goal.

He hasn’t found the net since the 3-3 draw with Bristol City in September, frustrated in recent weeks by stubborn keepers and the woodwork.

But Proctor believes tomorrow’s clash is the perfect opportunity.

“It’s good playing your old teams and there’s nothing better than scoring against them,” he said.

“I’m looking at it as one where if I play I’d love to find the net.”

Not that Proctor will be upsetting many old friends if he does find the net with big changes happening in recent months at the Broadfield Stadium following the departure of John Gregory.

“I think I only know two of the lads and not many of the staff,” he said.

“It’s not just changed since I left, it’s changed since we last played them.

“They’ve got a new manager, quite a few new faces.

“We can’t look at things too much from last time around, it’ll be a completely different side.”
