Fleet’s eyes on second Magpies prize

One for sorrow, two for joy goes the nursery rhyme – and Fleet need to repeat their win of 10 days ago over the Magpies of Chorley against the Magpies of Maidenhead if there’s to be any joy from this Tuesday night’s trip. With a succession of relegation rivals in their sights – first Chorley,…

Watson bemoans last 25 ‘capitulation’

Fleet boss Kevin Watson admitted he was shellshocked after Chesterfield’s last half-hour blitz that saw the scoreline accelerate from goalless to 4-0 in double quick time.

We rode our luck but we won ugly

Kevin Watson believed this afternoon’s crucial victory was more about the gritty nature of a positive result than the performance in a 90 minutes where the conditions dominated. “We have a good knack of bouncing back from bad results and indifferent performances,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “Today we won ugly.
