Bromley 5-1 Fleet

A second-half onslaught from Bromley closed out Fleet’s difficult season as the home side eased to what was a token three points in this ‘dead rubber’ of a fixture – but one that Neil Smith’s team more than deserved.

Fleet 0-1 Dover Athletic

Fleet’s play-off ambitions finally fell by the wayside as Dover gatecrashed the last home game of the season to deservedly make off with all three points. Alfie Pavey’s second-half goal as the visitors finally converted one of their chances was enough and Fleet were unable to really test Lee Worgan to haul themselves back into contention.

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.

Indeed having given up the ghost at half-time, many travelling fans will have been disappointed not to take all three points after both Eastleigh and Harrogate…

PREVIEW: Havant & Waterlooville

If there’s one place to make a stand near the end of a testing campaign, it’s a place with ‘Waterloo’ in the title – but Fleet must hope it’s not a final stand and they need three points this Good Friday to avoid the season effectively finishing at Westleigh Park.
