Rosler: We Had A Decent Control On The Game

Last updated : 21 January 2017 By CNS Sport

Fleetwood Town boss Uwe Rosler felt his side had a decent control on the game as they beat Coventry City 1-0 at the Ricoh Arena.

Rosler told the Blackpool Gazette: “I think in general we look like we had decent control on the game.

“We had one scary moment in the game where they (Callum Reilly) had a header from a cross and in that situation I feel a little bit for (Coventry boss) Russell Slade when you being at the bottom of the league then those moments sometimes not turn out to be in your favour.

“The post saved us on that one.“In general we had 55 percent possession, 11 attempts, they had five we had five on target they had two.

“We had nine corners they had one so I think the stats told the story a little bit. “Russell put a very strong, physical very tall team out, we kept them away.

We only allowed them one corner in the game I felt it was a challenge especially for George Glendon coming from the City academy he’s not used to that sort of football and I think he did well.

“In general we stood firm and I’m very proud to be the head coach of that team because the mentality we have shown, not only today, in our run now 10 games unbeaten in the league, the mentality to grind out and stay in the game and win it at the death shows how far we have come.

“They tried to stop us play and they did it effectively but we have shown we have options on the bench, that we can stay in games, that our fitness in the end helps us to win games and to be focused and not making sloppy mistakes all of those factors contribute and tell the story of where we are this year.”
