Fleetwood manager Simon Grayson said he felt if last night's game against Ipswich had ended 'three or four-nil', nobody could have complained.

The Cod Army moved up to 11th in League One after easily overcoming a poor Ipswich Town side, who rarely threatened.

Fleetwood are not just five points off the play-offs and they are unbeaten in six.

“We were really good tonight and really positive throughout,” Grayson told the Blackpool Gazette. “It was a quick start from us and we got into Ipswich’s faces. We just didn’t allow them to settle.

“They’ve got really good players all over the pitch, players who will hurt you if you allow them time and space. We just didn’t allow them that, though.
