Fleetwood Town boss Uwe Rosler felt it was two points dropped, as his side could only manage a 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United on Tuesday evening.

The visitors had looked to be heading towards defeat courtesy of a Lee Novak goal, when a late defensive error by Iron defender Murray Wallace allowed Jordy Hiwula space to slot the ball past Iron keeper Matt Gilks to rescue a point.

But Rosler felt that his side deserved more on the balance of play.

“I think we deserved more than one point,” Rosler told the press.

“We gave away two points tonight as I felt we were the better team on the pitch. We had more of the ball, more chances and passed the ball around nicely.

“Scunthorpe only had one cross in the second half and we limited them to long-range shots.

“We did everything we could to get that equaliser. I believe we will always score with the ability we have and with the introduction of Conor McAleny and Ashley Hunter, we played with a higher tempo and caused them problems and with that, the goal came. I am happy.

“We wore them out and I think we forced them to make mistakes and those little nudges and bumps had an effect. Jordy did just that and he got his rewards.

“We saw them low on confidence and took advantage of that, but we didn’t do enough to get that second goal. If we scored earlier and had fifteen more minutes, we maybe would have got another late goal.”
