Fleetwood Town Open Seven Point Gap At Top!


Fleetwood Town opened the gap at the top of the Blue Square North to seven points with victory at third place Hinckley United. First half goals from leading scorer Adam Warlow and Sean Clancy were enough to ensure Town put an end to a run of back-to-back defeats.

Micky Mellon welcomed Shaun Beeley and Steven Connors back from injury and handed a start to new signing Lee Thorpe to partner the returning Warlow. Danny Hurst took over in goal from Craig Dootson.

Matt West had a lively forty minutes for the home side before being withdrawn through injury and replaced by veteran Julian Jochim, who proved ineffective.

Steve McNulty started Town’s first chance on goal when he supplied Thorpe, but the final ball to Warlow lacked purpose. Hinckley countered and West was unlucky when he clipped Hurst’s bar.

Warlow opened the scoring on ten minutes when Thorpe flicked a throw-in forward to his strike partner. Warlow shrugged off his man and drilled confidently home.

Clancy doubled the lead on thirty-eight minutes from another Thorpe flick-on. The midfielder made his tally fourteen for the season with his left footed strike.

Hinckley rarely troubled Town from then on and the visitors were unlucky not to increase their lead.
