Following another win on Tuesday night, Fleet boss Daryl McMahon was delighted to see his side chalk up seven goals in two games… with seven different scorers!
“You look at the front line today,” McMahon told Charles Webster, “…Deering, Cook, even Rancey scoring, Powell from his set plays, obviously Keds. We’ve got [Aaron] McLean as well, Darren McQueen on the bench, Bubb on the bench, Charlie who wasn’t selected today but we’ve got plenty of goals in the team. And I think somebody will come through and get 20, 25 out of that pack.”
And the manager was pleased with his side’s application against Bishop’s Stortford after a somewhat dicey start that Fleet brushed aside after the opening quarter hour. “It was a good peformance, especially in the second half.,” McMahon said. “There were a couple of moments at the start of the game but we got the goal and settled down and dominated then. It was good to get Marvin back after he had glandular fever. He’s a very good defender, I think he’s come in and done really well. It knocked the stuffing out of him having that illness, he couldn’t get his breath back and obviously he was struggling but it’s good to have him back and he did well tonight.”
One negative result of an otherwise positive night was an injury to goalscorer Aaron McLean, who limped off on 71 minutes after closing down a defender and McMahon says he’s a doubt for Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup tie. “I don’t think we’ll risk him Saturday. It’s a block tackle; at the minute it’s not looking too bad, it’s painful for him, but not too bad.”
