“The way we won showed commitment”

Daryl McMahon spoke of the “monkey off his back” as Fleet held on to record their second home win in the league. The 1-0 victory over Barrow was Fleet’s fourth match unbeaten and also the fourth game in succession in which they’ve taken the lead – stats the manager would have bitten your hand off…

‘Brilliant’ to be in First Round draw

Daryl McMahon is looking forward to Monday evening’s Emirates FA Cup First Round draw after the Fleet picked up their second win at the Kuflink Stadium.

Macca: “We didn’t merit a loss”

Fleet boss Daryl McMahon was left with a familiar feeling of deja vu, taking some small comfort in his side’s second-half performance but left disappointed by the result. “I think it was a good performance today, we shouldn’t have lost the game,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Ian Randall. “I think that performance didn’t merit…

“A horrible game but they played the conditions…”

Soaked to the skin, Daryl McMahon felt much the same way about the 90 minutes as most observers inside the Kuflink Stadium when he described the afternoon’s events as a “drab, horrible game”. “It’s not a great day,” McMahon told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster after Fleet fell to their sixth defeat at home. “Harrogate…

“We can build on that for Tuesday…”

Daryl McMahon thought his Ebbsfleet side produced better this afternoon than they’d given in the previous two outings but he was frustrated that things didn’t quite fall Fleet’s way. “It was a better performance than we’ve had in the last two for sure,” he told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster. “Some good performances but not…

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…

PREVIEW: AFC Fylde

Six goals were shared by the Fleet and AFC Fylde last season and both sides have only enhanced their attacking reputations since then, leading to an expectation that it might very well rain goals at the Kuflink Stadium this Saturday. That, however, would be to ignore that the Coasters currently boast the best defensive record…
