PREVIEW: Dover Athletic

PREVIEW: Dover Athletic

With just a point from the last two games having not quite proven fatal for the Fleet’s play-off ambitions, fate has decreed that six of them are a must from two Kent derbies to end the 2018/19 campaign. There are probably simpler ways to end a season but Fleet are never ones to do things the easy way and a…

PREVIEW: Dagenham & Redbridge

PREVIEW: Dagenham & Redbridge

If there’s ever been a more important game against Dagenham & Redbridge than this, then Fleet fans will struggle to recall one. With four games to go and the play-offs within grasping distance like bait on a lure, three points would go a long way towards the end goal of a top-seven place. Rivals Eastleigh and Gateshead go up against…

PREVIEW: Gateshead

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. Danny Kedwell’s hat-trick that night all but clinched the top-seven spot with one game to go. It’s not quite as clear-cut as Fleet take the train to the International Stadium this weekend but the prize…

PREVIEW: Wrexham

PREVIEW: Wrexham

Garry Hill is once again targeting “a big result” for the Fleet after Tuesday’s goalless draw inched the Fleet up to eighth place – and believes Saturday’s clash at the Kuflink Stadium is the biggest test yet. The manager had made no secret of his desire for three points from Halifax but was taking the positives from the draw. “When…

PREVIEW: FC Halifax Town

PREVIEW: FC Halifax Town

Fleet have Andy Drury available again as Garry Hill takes his in-form side to FC Halifax Town for the second time looking to re-enter the play-off zone having not appeared in it since late August. After the heady triumph of the Gallagher Stadium, it will be a much different atmosphere Fleet head into at the MBi Shay with a partisan…

PREVIEW: Maidstone United

PREVIEW: Maidstone United

Kent derbies are very much like London buses for Garry Hill. He hasn’t experienced a single one in his managerial career but three come along in the next five weeks as Fleet go in search of their first win against local rivals in 2018/19. Two draws and a defeat have been Fleet’s lot in Kent derbies this season but the…

PREVIEW: Boreham Wood

PREVIEW: Boreham Wood

With the suspension deadline for 10 yellow cards having passed – and a disciplined Ebou Adams having escaped it having played on the knife-edge of nine cautions for several weeks – Garry Hill can welcome back Dean Rance and Chris Bush as the Kuflink Stadium hosts Boreham Wood. It’s some rare breathing space for the Fleet boss who has had…

PREVIEW: Maidenhead United

PREVIEW: Maidenhead United

Fleet may have had an unexpected bonus weekend to rest and recuperate following the postponement of the weekend fixture at FC Halifax Town but Garry Hill would hardly call it a rest after travelling all the way there and back across two days. “I was very, very disappointed,” he said. “I was aware there was a pitch inspection to be…

PREVIEW: Salford City

PREVIEW: Salford City

Garry Hill may be down to bare bones but his message ahead of the visit of pre-season title favourites Salford City is clear: “Don’t panic!” Suspensions will leave the Fleet boss with roughly the same number of bodies as he had at Barrow last week, with Bagasan Graham back but Chris Bush out, and it’s a team that now virtually…

PREVIEW: Barrow

PREVIEW: Barrow

It’s Fleet’s longest away trip of the season this weekend and Garry Hill faces the uphill task of scoring points with a small squad still beset by suspension to Bagasan Graham and injury to Dave Winfield. The Fleet dominated for long periods of Tuesday night’s clash at home to Hartlepool United but ultimately didn’t create enough to trouble goalkeeper Scott…
