Fleetwood Town boss Graham Alexander concerned by lack of goals

27 December 2014

Fleetwood Town boss Graham Alexander admitted he was worried by his side's lack of goals after they were beaten 2-0 by Bradford City.

James Hanson and Filipe Morais provided clinical finishes for the Bantams to boost the club's play-off hopes as the home side could not make first-half chances count.

Danny Andrew, Stephen Dobbie and Josh Morris all went close before the Bantams landed a Boxing Day sucker punch.

Alexander said: "We've done everything but score. We've done everything but hit the target.

"I'm disappointed we've not tested the keeper and it's let us down.

"The performance was there for the whole game.  The width of the post has done us second half.

"But we've not taken the opportunities first half when we were on top."

The Fleetwood boss is now considering a January transfer raid to boost his side's attacking strength, with Town having scored just 21 goals in 22 Sky Bet League 1 games.

He said: "We'll be out there, we'll be looking for that consistent striker. Us and the other 91 clubs.

"That's why they're the ones who drive around in the big cars and make the big money - it's what everybody needs, everybody wants.

"It's not like it's a problem that's crept up on us overnight.  We know what we need to do."
