Fleetwood Town 4-0 Burton Albion- Match Report

Last updated : 17 October 2015
Bobby Grant double helps Fleetwood rout BurtonA Bobby Grant brace helped Steven Pressley secure his first win as Fleetwood boss as they thrashed Burton 4-0 at Highbury.Matty Palmer thought he had given Burton the lead five minutes before the break but after finding space to shoot he rattled the woodwork from 18 yards.Fleetwood's response was a swift break and the ball spun out to Grant on the right, with his low cross beating Jon McLaughlin in the Burton goal and being swept in by Jamie Proctor

Burton quickly set about the task of hauling themselves level, Calum Butcher's low curling effort seriously testing Chris Maxwell's reactions early after the break

But the hosts looked smart on the break and extended their lead before the hour

Jimmy Ryan picked out Proctor's run on the right, Grant receiving the ball just inside the box and slotting low across McLaughlin with the ball creeping in the far corner

Grant and Proctor were not done, combining again for Fleetwood's third

Proctor's pressure on the Brewers' defence released the ball and Grant broke free before curling his shot into the top corner from just inside the box

Two subs combined for the fourth, with Jamille Matt breaking down the right, his first touch taking him into the box, and then selfishly squaring for Ash Hunter to slide the ball in at the second attempt after his initial shot was blocked on the line
