Fleetwood Town boss Uwe Rosler wants his players to get a late Christmas present of more people watching them this Boxing Day and New Year.

Town have won their last seven home games and have scored in every home game so far, all while playing some fast-flowing attacking football.

Rosler says every person who comes to watch makes a difference and that his players deserve to have more people watching them as they prepare to host Bury today and Oldham on New Year’s Eve.

Rosler said: “The boys really put a lot of effort in and at home I think we play attractive football.

“We had some blockbusting games, I just remembered the Leeds game for example or the last game against Shrewsbury in the cup.

“For us it makes a big difference every person who comes to the game.

“We are not used to having 10,000-15,000 but every person who comes to the game and supports us makes a difference for us.

“I think for us one way to grow a bigger and stronger fan base, the most important thing is how we play football and how we approach our jobs.”

Rosler has recalled young midfielder Nick Haughton from his loan spell at Salford City and says it is up to him to force his way into his plans after injuries to midfielders Jack Sowerby, Jimmy Ryan, Martyn Woolford and Kyle Dempsey.

He said: “It is up to him. He was on the bench for the last game and we have this week a long week training.

“I am not selecting the players, the players select themselves by how good they train and how good they play so it is not me, it is the players by themselves it is always the same.”
