Pre-Match Thoughts

Head Coach Paul Warne spoke to RamsTV ahead of Saturday's lunchtime kick-off against Fleetwood.

He said: "We'll have to be at our best to win and that's how it is every week.

"Even on our unbeaten run, we still had games where they came down to the smallest of margins. Hopefully we are on the right side of them at the weekend."

Top scorer James Collins spoke to RamsTV to preview the trip to Fleetwood.

He said: "If you want to get promoted, you have to go away from home and win. We battled at Fleetwood last year and ended up drawing 0-0 and that could have been the point that cost us the play-offs.

"We need to concentrate on ourselves and try and get the victory."
