That was like our first game of the season

After a sending-off in Game One and a threadbare, out-of-position side in Game Two, Garry Hill almost felt like Fleet got their campaign under way today in terms of performance. “It’s a silly thing to say but it was like our first game of the season,” he told BBC Radio’s Paul Francis. “We had a…

AFC Fylde 1-0 Fleet

Fleet may still be waiting for their points account to register a plus, but there were plenty of other positives on show as there was nothing between the pre-season title favourites and the bottom club bar Danny Rowe’s early penalty. Indeed Garry Hill was disappointed not to take three points and his side certainly had…

Can Fleet create trouble at Mill?

Mill Farm is the bookies’ favourite destination for where the Vanarama trophy will end up in April but Fleet go there buoyed by two new signings, having spent the past two games trying to scrape together enough bodies to fill the bench.

Hill is punished, but positive

Garry Hill thought his Fleet side played some of the best football he’d seen from them in the first half against AFC Fylde but that the chances that went begging were ultimately punished. “I thought the first half we were all over them,” he said. “I thought the football we played in the first half…

AFC Fylde 2-0 Fleet

Fleet let the train take the strain

Garry Hill’s all set for his longest away trip with the Fleet so far coming right before a Christmas in which he didn’t expect to be on the road. Having only been appointed in November, the Fleet manager might well have had other plans for the festive season but he insists he’s energised by the…

Weston glad of a short turnaround

Myles Weston picked up the man-of-the-match champagne this afternoon but after the manner of defeat to AFC Fylde, he’s glad there’s a chance to put things right at the earliest opportunity. The stand-in left-back told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster that a midweek game is the best option for all the squad to avoid them…

Rowe’s two-in-a-row the difference, says Macca

Daryl McMahon hailed the quality of AFC Fylde matchwinner Danny Rowe as the difference between the sides, the 28-year-old’s second-half brace sinking the Fleet before a late revival threatened the visitors’ foothold in the match. “Danny Rowe is the best goalscorer in the division and we’ve been beaten by him today, two fantastic goals,” McMahon…

Fleet 1-3 AFC Fylde

AFC Fylde boosted their credentials with a clinical second-half display and a late goal that killed off a Fleet revival sparked by a truly wonderful strike from substitute Corey Whitely.
