The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

FLEET­WOOD boss Gra­ham Alexan­der be­lieves his side’s de­feat to Bar­net last month was just the kick up the back­side the Cod Army needed in their pro­mo­tion push.

Since crash­ing 2-0 to the strug­gling Bees on March 19, Fleet­wood have got their play-off push back on track with record sign­ing Jamille Matt driv­ing them on.

“We were hor­ren­dous so there was only one way to go and that was up,” said Alexan­der. “It was a mas­sive re­al­ity check for ev­ery­one. We had to show it both­ered us and show we care, and the play­ers have done that.When they do that, we’re a good team.”
