It’s going to go to the wire, says Fleet boss

In a hurry to catch the train back south, Garry Hill was uncharacteristically shorter on words than usual after Fleet’s 1-1 draw at Gateshead. The Fleet boss accepted his side should perhaps have won the game but he wasn’t overly upset with a “good point” in a month that he believes will stretch the nerves…

Gateshead 1-1 Fleet

Fleet battled back to a point to close the gap on Eastleigh and seventh place after conceding early at the International Stadium, Chris Bush equalising against his old club.

PREVIEW: Gateshead

When last Fleet travelled to Gateshead – on a cold, rainy Tuesday last April – a 5-2 win propelled the club into the play-off places.

Fleet 0-1 Gateshead

Fleet fell to their fourth home defeat of the season and their third 1-0 reverse as Gateshead’s first-half goal gave them a platform on which to build and they successfully shut out the home side after that.

McMahon: “A performance was all I wanted”

Daryl McMahon’s been sitting on a coach for much of April plotting Fleet’s next move in an increasingly extraordinary campaign and, dwelling on his side’s defeat at home to Sutton en route to the north-east, he was determined his squad put in a better showing in their penultimate game of the regular season. “It’s been…

“Maybe I’m getting better as I get older,” says 52-goal hero

Danny Kedwell routinely targets 20 goals a season but that’s always easier said than done for a striker. Having hit that mark, along with his hat-trick and his 50, 51st and 52nd goals for the club, the evergreen frontman claims he might even be improving with age! “That’s my target, 20 goals a season,” the…

Gateshead 2-5 Fleet
