“For us it’s important to make sure we keep doing the right things on a consistent basis.

“And with the players’ ability we can take Fleetwood to places it’s not been before.”

One reason for Barton’s belief is the strength of his squad this season. Players with the attacking qualities of Wes Burns, Ched Evans, Ash Hunter, Paddy Madden and Conor McAleny have all found themselves coming off the bench in recent weeks.

Barton added: “We’ve got an abundance of riches, so it’s nice looking around your bench and knowing you’ve got attacking off the bench.

“There’s no dip in quality when we get to that 60 or 70- minute mark (and make a change).”
