PREVIEW: Dover Athletic

With just a point from the last two games having not quite proven fatal for the Fleet’s play-off ambitions, fate has decreed that six of them are a must from two Kent derbies to end the 2018/19 campaign. There are probably simpler ways to end a season but Fleet are never ones to do things…

Fleet boss asked his players to “win the second-half”

Words may have been uttered at half-time but there were no teacups flying according to Garry Hill, as he said his first objective after coming in 3-0 down was to calm the changing room. “There was frustration at half time,” Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “They are shell shocked, emotions are running high…

Havant & Waterlooville 3-3 Fleet

From Black Friday to Good Friday, Fleet’s season has been a rollercoaster and they kept it rolling on with an astonishing 10-minute fightback in the second-half to grab a draw from a three-goal deficit.

We did ourselves no favours – Hill

Garry Hill didn’t mince words as he watched Fleet fall to a disappointing defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge, the visitors confirming their survival in the National League in the process. “We’ve not done ourselves justice today by our standards,” Hill told BBC Radio Kent’s Matt Cole. “If you looked at a team out on the…

Fleet 0-1 Dagenham & Redbridge

Fleet don’t beat Dagenham very often on home soil and never looked like burying that unwelcome record this afternoon in a defeat that mirrored the Daggers’ win by the same scoreline in the FA Trophy. A defensive error gifted the visitors a first-half goal and while Fleet attempted to mount a second-half comeback, it didn’t…

PREVIEW: Dagenham & Redbridge

If there’s ever been a more important game against Dagenham & Redbridge than this, then Fleet fans will struggle to recall one. With four games to go and the play-offs within grasping distance like bait on a lure, three points would go a long way towards the end goal of a top-seven place. Rivals Eastleigh…
