Alexander downbeat after loss

Graham Alexander struggled to find any positives from Fleetwood's emphatic 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Bristol Rovers.

Danny Woodards, Eliot Richards and John-Joe O'Toole were on target for the Pirates as they cruised past a below-par Town side.

Alexander, who handed a debut to record signing Jamille Matt, said: "We just didn't get started, conceded an early goal, just didn't do the basics of any professional football game.

"Bristol Rovers came here, wanted it more than us and thoroughly deserved the three points."
