Elding returned for Town, who were otherwise unchanged.

After a first 20 mins with no clear chances but a fairly open game, McNulty made a terrible back pass and Hearn pounced on it, eventually poking the ball past the 'keeper, and getting it to trundle over the line.

Town needed Miller to save them with a last gasp challenge to deny Vardy.

The first half ended 1-0. Town had limited Fleetwood to just a few long range effort and taken advantage of the one mistake made by the home side.

After the break Fleetword soon switched to 4-4-2 bringing Brodie on and they tried to create a chance by diving in the box when Brodie was booked.

Brodie almost scored but Townsend cleared it off the line in a last gasp interception.

Several Town players were booked and then the ref gave Fleetwood a penalty when Church was adjudged to have fouled his man. Mangan scored from the spot.

McGuire should have given Fleetwood the lead but headed his cross wide.

With the match in injury time Vardy fired a deflected shot into the top corner.
