Uwe sees his young Cod Army on the rise
UWE Rosler fired a warning that his Fleetwood side will get stronger as the season progresses after they heaped fresh misery on rock-bottom Plymouth.
Jordy Hiwula and Amari’i Bell struck to inflict a fifth straight home defeat on the struggling Pilgrims.
Alex Fletcher pulled one back for Plymouth deep into stoppage time but the Pilgrims are now without a win in ten league games.
But Fleetwood boss Rosler is looking upwards as his side moved to within a point of the play-off places.
He said: “It was a professional performance and we played winning football.
“When we had the ball we looked a real threat and the two goals were well-taken.
“The gameplan was make sure we were compact and everybody did their job. The longer the game went on, the more control we had.
“With this young squad we will get better and better throughout the season and I am sure we will have a strong second half of the season.
“I think we will score more goals this season and concede more as well. We need to be prepared for that and be patient with the players.”
Hiwula looked to have broken the deadlock on 35 minutes when he chipped the ball over Pilgrims keeper Kyle Letheren. But Ryan Edwards hooked the ball off the line to rescue Plymouth.
A mistake by Pilgrims midfielder Antoni Sarcevic led to the opener when he gifted possession to Bobby Grant.
The ball was threaded into the feet of Hiwula who found the top corner with a strong finish.
The win was sealed in stoppage time after Wes Burns played in Bell and he shifted the ball to his left foot before ramming his shot past Letheren. Fletcher headed home Graham Carey’s cross in the 94th minute to give the Argyle fans something to cheer.
But manager Derek Adams was not happy as his side slumped to their eighth defeat in their last nine league games. He said: “In the first half we were in control of the match and in the second half I thought they were the better team.
“We got punished for a mistake for their opener and that has happened a number of times this season. We have struggled to get that first goal and it is costing us.
“The delivery was poor and we weren’t clinical enough. The game was finished when they scored their second goal.
“A positive is Alex (Fletcher) who is a young player. He scored his first league goal and has a bright future.”
