Fleetwood's Junior Brown is relishing his new-found status as a free-scoring winger.

Dogged by knee injuries over the past two seasons, Brown - a left-back by trade - has been utilised in a wide attacking role by Town boss Micky Mellon this term.

The move looked inspired once more last weekend when former Crewe youngster Brown netted the fifth goal of his debut Football League season to snatch a last-gasp 2-2 draw at Cheltenham.

"It's a new experience for me," he told Press Association Sport. "I'd not made one solitary appearance in the Football League when I was at Crewe and it's nice to be back.

"Everyone wants to play in the Football League, it's a great opportunity. I've been given the chance by Fleetwood and the gaffer's pushed me further up the field and shown faith in me.

"It's working well at the moment. I've got more license and a bit more freedom to do my thing and it's paying off. I'm scoring goals, making chances for the boys and long may it continue."
