Laws: Fleetwood title contenders

22 October 2013 10:32
United boss Brian Laws has insisted his side will put Saturday's shock 4-0 reverse behind them when they travel to Fleetwood.

However Laws is expecting a very tough game against a team he beleives are one of the league's top outfits.

“Fleetwood are what we call the big spenders in our league,” he told the club's official website.

“They will be a contender for the title. I think they underachieved last year and they will be looking to do better this season.

“Tuesday’s match gives us an opportunity to clear the Exeter game out of our mindset and concentrate on our future matches.” Sean McAllister will undergo a fitness test ahead of the game, whilst Chris Iwelumo may be included in the squad if he has recovered from illness.

Hakeeb Adelakun played 90 minutes in the Youth teams 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Bradford on Monday night, as is likely to only make the bench at Highbury.
