Graham Alexander: Pleased with a 'committed performance'

Fleetwood boss Graham Alexander saluted his team's desire as they completed a league double over Oxford with a 2-1 away victory on Tuesday.

Goals in each half by Ryan Crowther and Junior Brown at the Kassam made it four games unbeaten for the Cod Army, who had thrashed the U's 3-0 at Highbury Stadium less than three weeks ago.

He said: "Our lads showed so much heart and so much energy.

"It was a committed performance with a lot of hard work, I was pleased with what our lads showed."

The result moved Alexander's side back into the play-off places, but the manager is not getting carried away.

"It's just another three points to add to our points tally," he said.

"It really doesn't matter at this stage where we are in the table, whether it's eighth, as we were, or much higher. But coming into the final weeks, we're in a very good position.

"We have to take it one small step at a time.

Goalscorer Crowther did not come out for the second half after suffering concussion and Alexander confirmed he was taken to hospital for a check up.

"It was a shame because when he came off we lost one of our main attacking threats," he added.
