The home side grabbed the lead after just ten minutes thanks to a defensive howler from Michael Raynes.

The job of clearing the ball ahead of an advancing Gareth Evans seemed simple enough but the centre half somehow fired straight at Matt who knew little about the incident until the ball hit the top left-hand corner.

Town had a second ruled out ten minutes later when captain Rob Atkinson was judged to have fouled a U's defender before heading home, but they did bag a second early in the second half.

Another mistake at the back, this time from Damien Batt, gifted the ball to substitute Crowther who drove into the box, finishing low past Wayne Brown.

With the U's already two down substitute Adam Chapman produced the best opportunity for the visitors, his set-piece tipped over by Fleetwood's Scott Davies.

But the home side added a third five minutes from time, Evans' cross pushed back across the face of goal by Jamie McGuire for substitute Jon Parkin to tap in.

Mail Box

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

Erm... Balotelli To QPR..?

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
