Fleetwood Town were able to secure a point against Southend United thanks to a late goal fromConor McLaughlin.
Only recently, manager Steven Pressley set a target of eight victories in the remainder of the campaign in order to avoid relegation from League One. The team had a sweet boost of confidence following the 2-0 win over Peterborough United in the previous game. This coupled with a point against Southend will only make Fleetwood confident that they can avoid relegation. The upcoming games for the club are against Oldham, Millwall, and Blackpool. A figure of 65 points will be enough to sustain their position in League One. This has been the magical figure to achieve safety in the division and Fleetwood are approaching the 50 point mark.
“There is a good feeling around the place. We are very much aware of the job in hand. The one thing that we know is that we can achieve a points tally of 65 points come the end of the season and 65 points in this league is not going to get you relegated. It is very much in our own hands.We have got some interesting fixtures coming up and games that we genuinely think we can win,” said Pressley in an interview ahead of the game at Swindon.
