Danny Rose believes the squad are reaping the benefits of having no midweek games ahead of today's clash at home to Tamworth.
"It was nice to have a full week's training and not have a midweek game," he said, "have a little break, get all the boys together, and anyone who had any knocks managed to get some important rest time in. We had near enough the full squad out there training today [Friday], so we're very much looking forward to tomorrow."
Due to the recent bout of cold and frosty weather, many games this weekend have been called off, including Preston North End's home fixture versus Brentford. The likes of Fleetwood groundsman Dale Frith have been working hard to ensure the game at Highbury goes ahead, and Rose was full of praise for him.
"Dale does a fantastic job to get these games on; considering the weather its fair play to him really," said Rose. "I remember probably a little over a year ago when I was at Newport and there was really bad weather, and they somehow managed to get that game on - I think it was us and one other game in the country which were the only ones that were on. He's done a great job and it gives us that opportunity to extend our lead at the top."
Rose was also thankful for the 3G pitch at training base Fylde Rugby Club, adding, "It's been really, really cold the last couple of days so we're lucky enough to have those facilities. We've still been able to train to a good standard and the manager's been able to get out of us what he's wanted to."
Today's opponents Tamworth enter the game on the back of a 1-0 away victory at Cambridge, a result which should provide them with a boost before the journey up north, but Rose says the players will treat them like any other visitors to Highbury.
"Obviously they'll be a bit more confident than they were if they hadn't got the result, but their results don't really affect us," he said. "We still go in with the same mentality and believing that we can win any game, so to us really it doesn't really matter who we're up against - we still want to do the same job."
Earlier this week Rose received his fifth call up to the England C team ahead of their game against Italy later this month - which members of the Cod Army will be able to witness on home territory as the game will be played at Highbury with free admission to fans.
"I'm absolutely delighted to get another call up," he said. "I'm delighted to be here and happy to get the first month out of the way, settle down, get to know the boys and feel comfortable on the pitch. I've got myself a couple of goals already and I'm looking forward to the run in.
"It's good of Fleetwood to make it free entry, they could have charged the public," Rose added, "so with it being free entry they will come along and support the best non-league young players around, make it a really good occasion and hopefully the first of many at Highbury."
