Alexander hails cool head Carr

Graham Alexander hailed young striker Daniel Carr as his side hit scoring form against Accrington Stanley.

The on-loan striker fired home for his first ever Football League goal in the 94th minute to seal the win and Alexander couldn’t be more pleased.

“He’s a goalscorer, we knew that,” said the Fleetwood boss.

“He’s come on a few times for us and done really well.

“It was a game for experience which is why we went with the team we picked.

“But I’ve made a couple of changes late on and they’ve sparked the team again.

“Stewart Murdoch’s gone and shown real professionalism and it’s a great finish from Danny.

“That’s the first goal of his career and the first of many I believe.”

“We deserved the three points. We’ve put it at risk a little bit, we’re one mistake, one set piece away from drawing a game we should easily have won

“But we saw that little spell out and it’s a great goal to seal it and I’m really pleased for the lads.

“Their attitude to the game was great and it really was what we needed.”

The Fleetwood boss made radical changes to his side, bringing back Nathan Pond at centre half, adding Alan Goodall in a role between defence and midfield and starting with two strikers in the form of Parkin and Ball.

Alexander said: “We wanted to get back on track after the previous two games and we did that well.

“We looked really solid, which was important and that was a big part of the team selection.”
