Scott Brown’s managerial career at Fleetwood Town Football Club has had a difficult start. Despite being an experienced player, his transition from being a player to a manager has been far from smooth.
Brown was appointed as Fleetwood‘s manager back in the summer and the club had high hopes for the former Celtic player.
However, This poor run of form has seen them slip down the table to 17th. The club‘s supporters have become increasingly frustrated with Brown‘s leadership, with some questioning whether he is the right man for the job.
Their latest loss came in a 3–2 defeat to Burton, leaving the team in a precarious position in the league. Fleetwood took the lead but were quickly behind after a Burton double. Scott Brown’s side were then reduced to ten men. Against the odds, they scored a 94th minute equaliser. Joy would turn to despair in the 96th minute when Burton would retake the lead.
Brown has attempted to implement a new style of play, but despite his proven leadership skill, it’s been a struggle. His tactics have been criticised among the support and local pundits. Despite the team‘s poor form, Brown remains optimistic that Fleetwood can turn things around. He has urged the players to remain focused.
Fleetwood are not a team who were expected to set the league alight but Scott will be as frustrated as anyone else involved at the club that so many results that could have been wins have slipped through their fingers.
