Fleetwood’s battling qualities were again on display as our never say die attitude earned us another point to keep our unbeaten run going.

Leyton Orient looked as though they would become the first side to beat us in League 1 but a late equaliser made sure we kept our unbeaten run going in a 1-1 draw at Highbury on Saturday.

Adam Legzdins was forced into saves by David Ball and Jamie Proctor, who was looking to keep up his impressive goalscoring form since his summer arrival.

Mathieu Baudry almost headed Leyton Orient ahead though by his effort came back off the bar before Darius Henderson beat Chris Maxwell as he headed home Jobi McAnuff’s freekick.

An equaliser wasn’t looking as though it would come until seven minutes from time when we broke through.

Stephen Dobbie was fit enough to return and he came off the bench to finish low past Legzdins to draw us level.

The Cod Army almost snatched an unlikely, and probably undeserved, win even later when Gareth Evans effort at the end of a counter attack was saved by Legzdins.

Before the game I said I wouldn’t be unhappy with a point and I’m not.

We could have folded and gone down to defeat but we kept plugging away and secured a point to keep our flying start to life in League 1 going, it might be two successive draw but it’s better than two successive defeats!
