The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

STEVEN Press­ley’s reign at Fleet­wood Town be­gan with a de­feat, though his side cer­tainly de­served some­thing from the game.

Iron­i­cally for Press­ley his first game in the Town dugout came against the side he left in Fe­bru­ary, Coven­try City.

For a side low on con­fi­dence and with­out a league win since thump­ing Colch­ester United 4-0 in Au­gust, the Cod Army de­fended well.

The last-minute goal for Tony Mow­bray’s men summed things up for Fleet­wood cur­rently, with a Chris Maxwell save de­flect­ing off Richard Wood and into his own goal. Un­til that mo­ment Press­ley, a cen­tre-half him­self in his play­ing days, would have been proud of the per­for­mance of his two cen­tre-backs, Wood and Dion­atan Teix­eira.
