BREWERS forward David Templeton looks ahead to our home tie against Fleetwood Town on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

Despite the most recent league result being a 4-3 victory away at Bolton Wanderers on New Year's Day, Temps says that the whole squad want to put right the wrongs of the FA Cup defeat on Sunday, ahead of two back-to-back home games against Fleetwood Town and MK Dons respectively.

"The game on Sunday was fairly disappointing. We wanted to go through to the next round but we gave away cheap goals.

"We have been on a good run recently in the league, and hopefully come Saturday we can get three points and push ourselves higher up the table again."

Over recent months, the squad have been able to put away more of the chances and situations that are being created. Temps too has been on the scoresheet with some excellent finishes, such as the 25-yard drive that put the Brewers on course for a comeback victory against Bolton.

But David feels that goals being scored need to be offset by keeping goals out of our own net too.

"We always felt like those type of games would come and we would take chances, because we were creating so many," said David.

"So as long as we keep doing the right thing and creating chances, you always have a chance of scoring them. Thankfully, as a team, we have been putting a few of them away.

"But we also need to stop conceding as many goals, and that is from the front backwards.

"We need to work harder to keep the ball out of our net and take our own chances when they arrive."

Looking to Fleetwood on Saturday, the Scottish winger was aware of the tough test that the Cod Army will pose on Saturday afternoon.

"In the few times I have played against them, they have always been tough. They're well organised, with good players going forward and we will need to be at our best to get anything out of the game. 

"We will need to try and break them down because the games between us have been tight. We should be creative and clinical when we do get our chances."
