Onto another tricky away game, would be nice to have a few goal attempts after saturday's bilge. Surely got to be change of either personnel or formation after recent powderpuff efforts ( Wigan apart ). Quite simply we need 4 points from this one and Oldham next week at home. Feel quite underwhelmed at the moment 2 wins from 8 is not a good start and all the enthusiasm after Wigan has been kicked out from underneath. I'll throw one in the works here and expect abuse but hey ho it's a game of opinion. Drop / Rest Andoh as i fear it's all catching up on the lad, use as impact sub, due to his size he can't simply keep running into defenders and crying foul just cos they twice the size of him. Too soon for Oaky i'd imagine but once fit i'd go Oaky and Grant central and Foley out wide where he played for Yeovil in promotion season. I won,t do a score prediction as i am negative enough !!

Big game, a win and all will be positive again though. Need to get back to doing what we was pre Tuesday night and certainly defend set pieces better. Fleetwood have gone downhill too after a good start it seems so possibly 1-1 here.

Can't afford to lose this one. Hopefully the lads will get their arses in gear and sort out a win otherwise we're going to be in the shit.

2-0 Fleetwood, we are poor up front, we never look like pulling a goal back once going behind.

I think i'd settle for actually making their keeper work a bit and make a save or 2, not holding my breath though, Page isn't really interested in attacking away from home.

After so much promise we seem to have settled back into last seasons tactics of making it so easy for the opposition to score. Our defending has gone to pot after a really good start.

As we feared, our inability to score (bar two excellent home performances) is coming back to bite us, alongside Page's crazy retained list which has seen us lumbered with some really poor quality backup that simply can't change things from the bench.

9 points from 24 is a poor start whichever way you look at it and we tend to go to places like Fleetwood and meekly surrender. Having said that, Fleetwood have had a similarly poorish start and there has got to be some of the form in there that we have shown in certain matches this season. We've looked a class above in some games and then relegation fodder in others. Which team turns up depends on what result we get.

Not sure why the extreme negativity to be honest, (im guilty too in fairness)

We've had 2 straight defeats so 8 days ago we were raving about the club but whilst Bury was poor by the sounds of it, Millwall were superb on the day. Overall the performances have been good, defence has been improved up until the last three games and were not too far away from being a very good side. We are in transition but a win Saturday and everyone will be raving again.

Another quality 45mins of Page inspired football, 1-0 down, but could've been 3 and Fleetwoods keeper not really tested.

We've lost all the early season quality and look in a mess again. Page to go next week I reckon after 3 wins in 20 league games.

Just to add Streete should have been sent off for a blatant foul on Matt when he was last man. Can't believe the ref waived play on

You should have been down to 9 for the the foul on our keeper and the foul on duffy who ended up with a massive gash on his leg.

Game of two halves, delighted with the result although a draw would've probably been fair.

Just seen the highlights on sky...

Looks a very bad tackle on our keeper and could and probably should of been a red, his foot appears to connect on our keepers leg too!

Good goal for Fleetwood but really poor defending to allow him to score that, good finish from Daniel for ours, looks a penalty to me from the angle seems a straightforward one but might be different from another camera angle.

Uche should do better and Dodds was unlucky before Fleetwood scored with their chances and bodies on the line in the scramble. AJ does well in a couple of the clips with the build up play for Daniels goal and Uches effort how did he do overall?

You should take those blinkers off. You could have quite conceivably been down to 8 men by the end. The challenge by Matt on the goalkeeper, the ultra late tackle on Granty and the worst of the lot- the absolutely disgusting challenge on Duffy that could quite easily have broken his leg.
