Can we be fleet of foot at Fleetwood?

Although they are third from bottom in the real table,. Fleetwood moved up to 15th in the form table last weekend and secured a respectable 0-0 draw at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday.   This was also the scoreline away at promotion chasing Stevenage last Saturday.

Fleetwood claim that defensive solidity is their key, but they have conceded 30 goals at home and won just four, drawn three and lost eleven.

Perhaps the owner will deliver one of his inspirational messages from his prison cell and the Cod Army will see a result banged to rights.

Fleetwood has a population of 26,000 which is about a quarter the size of the mini conurbation I live in and there is just a third tier non-league team here which seems more realistic.

BBC1's Football Focus are visiting my non-league club Leamington tomorrow to mark Paul Holleran's (pictured) 700th game in charge (the programme will go out on Easter Saturday).   Some bleeping may be necessary.   Holleran does not hold back in advising referees.
