York 0-2 Fleetwood

Fleetwood continued their impressive start to life in League Two with victory at fellow promoted side York.

Matty Blair and Jamal Fyfield both went close for the Minstermen and Michael Coulson rattled the crossbar.

But Junior Brown opened the scoring with the visitors' first shot on target as his deflected effort flew into the top corner from long range.

And Steven Gillespie rounded off the win late on when he latched on to Brown's flick-on to slot home.

The victory leaves Fleetwood third in the table, five points behind leaders Gillingham.

Mills rues missed opportunities

"I thought maybe the first half was the best we've played this season.

"We certainly started the first half an hour the best and you could see the goal.

"We came out and didn't get going second half - it was a different game.

"There's no arguments from me. I thought my players were excellent for 45 minutes and I was disappointed to go in one down but we were still positive coming out second half but never really got going."

Fleetwood Town manager Micky Mellon told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"It was a hard fought victory but a deserved victory. We're delighted to come to a place like York and pick up all three points.

"We knew York would start like an express train and we knew we had to cope with that.

"Junior Brown has been magnificent all season. We've encouraged him to enjoy his football and play with freedom. It's allowed him to blossom and develop.

"He's still very young but if he keeps putting in performances like that, we'll be made up."
