Dean Marney's first Fleetwood goal fuelled a 3-0 victory over Coventry at Highbury.
Fleetwood responded to a 2-1 defeat at relegation battling Plymouth in some fashion with a fine 3-0 win over the in-form Sky Blues.
And end-to-end first half somehow finished 0-0 but Fleetwood were clinical as they went for the jugular at the start of the second half.
Marney capped a sublime return to the side with a thunderous finish; the ex-Burnley player rifled the ball into the top corner from an angle on the right in the 54th minute.
Wes Burns made it 2-0 in the 72nd minute as he pounced on Paddy Madden's defence-splitting pass to sprint through on goal and calmly slide the ball under Lee Burge.
Ched Evans made it 3-0 just seconds later as he found space in the box to blast home his seventh of the campaign but first in open play since the 2-1 win over Bradford City.
Coventry kept going with Jonson Clarke-Harris ruled to have been clipped in the box by James Husband.
But Fleetwood secured their clean sheet to make it five unbeaten in the league at Highbury as Conor Chaplin blasted the spot-kick over the bar.
