Fleet aim their fire on inspired Spireites

There’s fire in the Fleet belly of late and Kevin Watson knows that if he can continue to harness that in the right direction then his side will only be going one way. The Kuflink Stadium kicks off a busy November with six ex-League sides awaiting the Fleet this month. We start versus in-form Chesterfield…

Holmes has clean bill of health but the boss has the headache

There are selection dilemmas galore for Fleet interim boss Kevin Watson as he welcomes a couple of players back who sat out the game in midweek and he confessed that one or two might even be left in the stands such is the competition for places at present. Jordan Holmes is back in the squad…

Chorley 0-4 Fleet

Victory at Victory Park was all Kevin Watson asked of his men but even he might not have foreseen such a comprehensive victory as Fleet blasted four goals away from home for the first time since New Year’s Day, writes Mark Halliday. Chorley might well feel aggrieved not to have mounted more resistance to that…

You make your own luck, says jubilant Watson

The acid test of a change in Fleet’s fortunes in recent weeks was always going to come down to this visit to Gander Green Lane, the graveyard of so many Fleet sides over past years. It’s been 17 years since Fleet fans last tasted victory here and they hadn’t even seen a goal against Sutton…

Sutton United 2-3 Fleet

Having not scored against Sutton in five games or won here since 2002, Fleet fans can barely remember anything approaching success at Gander Green Lane. In the closing stages of this match, they were fearing the worst once more only for their side to sensationally grab the three points after nine minutes of added time,…

Sutton preview: points are paramount

Fleet fans have long felt they’re due a win against Sutton United – and rarely would one be greeted as warmly than if their side could manage it this weekend. Sutton, having previously never won at Stonebridge Road, have enjoyed two 1-0 victories in their last two visits and they haven’t lost on home soil…
