After pulling off a string of truly astounding saves in an all-action second half at Hemel Hempstead, Fleet goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore preferred to take the positives of a “good away point”. “We all know what we want.

Boss feels Fleet left it too late to liven up

Daryl McMahon thought his side could have livened up a bit sooner after Nathan Ashmore’s string of fine saves and accepted that the point may still prove a valuable away one. “The second half, first 15-20 minutes we were poor, too deep, couldn’t get out and lacked a bit of composure as well,” McMahon told BBC Radio…

In conversation with BBC Radio Kent’s Matt Cole, McMahon conceded that his side have to improve. “After getting ourselves in front to concede…
