Defender Stevie Jordan has said he’s relishing the Burnley game later this evening because he has very fond memories of his former club.

Jordan in his time at Turf Moor played his part in helping them to secure promotion to the Premier League and in his three years with them between 2007 and 2010 he notched up 83 appearances and with it being Fleetwood’s first home friendly of the summer when we host them at Highbury he’s equally looking forward to a return to the pitch in front of the home fans.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the game, he explained.

‘First and foremost I`m looking forward to being back at Highbury so we can get ourselves on a good surface and pass the ball around. I had three unbelievable years at Burnley so hopefully it`ll be a good game and it`s one I can`t wait to play in on Tuesday.’

With pre season preparations now well underway, Jordan went on to say that like all players now he feels back in the swing of things and he feels ‘good’ but obviously with a few weeks still to go before we kick off the campaign for real there is still more work to be done, more fitness to be gained and especially that match fitness and sharpness.

‘I`m feeling really good at the moment and am starting to get back to full speed now. The aim is to get back to full fitness though as it`s still pre-season. By the time the season comes around I`ll hopefully be hitting top form and ready to go.’

With Burnley and the Getafe now up on the horizon, he admits that all of the players are looking forward to these two matches in particular because they will be great tests for us given the quality players they have in their ranks.

‘They`re great tests for us as we`ll be playing clubs who are in higher divisions than us. It`s what you need in pre-season though as you don`t want to be playing below-par teams. I obviously spent a lot of time at Manchester City as a kid but my best three years came at Burnley without a shadow of a doubt. There`s not many people left since I was there but it`ll still be nice to see some of them.’

Kick off is 7.45pm.
