The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

UWE Rosler has com­pared the League One pro­mo­tion race to a con­cert – and be­lieves his side are ca­pa­ble of sticking around un­til the fat lady sings.

Fleet­wood have taken the di­vi­sion by storm with a 17-game un­beaten run be­fore yes­ter­day’s visit to fel­low pro­mo­tion hope­fuls Scun­thorpe United.

The club look des­tined to se­cure at least a play-off spot and they re­main locked in a fierce bat­tle for au­to­matic pro­mo­tion.

Any­one wait­ing for Fleet­wood to fall away looks set to be dis­ap­pointed, but Rosler ac­cepts his side are the un­der­dogs this sea­son, com­pared to the likes of Sh­effield United, Mill­wall and Bolton.

“We are Fleet­wood Town and we are play­ing in the con­cert with the big clubs,” he said.

“Hope­fully we can stay there un­til the fi­nal note is played. You have to earn the right to be where you are, and we are here be­cause we are good at what we are do­ing.

“We can get bet­ter and we strive to get bet­ter be­cause that is our mo­ti­va­tion in ev­ery game.”
