1st half wasn't great although we scored a good goal and created the clearer chances/openings. 2nd half was much better as our midfield finally started to win 50/50s and our power and physicality overwhelmed them. 2 more very good goals and several other chances as threatened to set up another 'Battered Cods' headline.
Fair play to them when they eventually clawed 1 back, the additional 9 minutes had a few nervy moments but overall you'd have to be a completely blinkered Fleetwood fan to argue the result didn't reflect the chances created.
The atmosphere was good also, fantastic at times. A huge win in the context of the league and with Sunderland up next, a win there really would fired-up our hopes. Gutted I can't make that one but have no doubt the 1000+ will give the team fantastic backing.
Odd how they think the ref gave everything our way. The free kick for our 2nd was soft and the theatrical dive was a little OTT. That said, I'm struggling to think of many other decisions in our favour, whereas they seemed to drop at the slightest touch and gain free kick after free kick.
As for the idiot who ran on the pitch and goaded our fans, I wont condone violence but moaning about it seems pathetic. What did he/they think was going to happen? I'm assuming he was old enough to drink, as it didnt look like the behaviour of someone sober. Oh well another 2 or 3 that won't bother going to their 'cup final' in the future, absolute snowflakes!
