VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander told BBC Radio Lancashire:
"The wind played a part in the first half and made it difficult for us to get out of the pressure towards our goal, but that's no excuse for the goal we conceded.
"If the whistle had gone beforer the goal, I'd have been happy because I'd have been happy to keep a clean sheet ahainst that wind.
"We've conceded a terrible goal from our throw-in. It was sloppy play and that's given them something to defend."
York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:
"You're playing against a very, very good side and to come here and take all three points is a very good achievement.
"But I'll reiterate that we've done today what we're good at and when we do that we can get good results.
"So that's the benchmark and in these conditions we've actually played some very good football.
"I was pleased with that and obviously delighted with the three points."
