Cody Army create history

Fleetwood recorded their first home victory in the Football League as they beat Aldershot 4-1 in a game which saw both sides finish with 10 men.

Midfielder Junior Brown put Fleetwood ahead after 25 minutes, his left-footed strike from the edge of the penalty area squirming into the bottom corner.

Minutes later the home side were reduced to 10 men, Dean Howell judged by referee Scott Mathieson to have handled on the line.

Scott Davies saved Josh Payne's penalty but Aldershot were level before the break, Craig Reid's shot hitting first the underside of the bar and then goalkeeper Davies before crossing the line.

Ten-man Fleetwood regained the lead two minutes into the second half, captain Steve McNulty converting a free header at the back post from Andy Mangan's free-kick.

Michael Rankine should have levelled for the visitors, somehow firing wide at the near post from point-blank range.

With 15 minutes remaining Payne's handball near the centre circle earned him a second yellow card and, with parity restored, Fleetwood extended their lead courtesy of Brown's second.

Mangan grabbed Fleetwood's fourth with a late strike from the edge of the box.
