PREVIEW: Chesterfield

New year, new destination. The Fleet make their first ever trip to the Proact Stadium looking to avenge the opening-day defeat at the hands of Chesterfield and so propel themselves further towards the top seven. But, as is a familiar position for the Fleet, they head into the game hoping that a previously down-on-their-luck home side don’t react to a…

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.

PREVIEW: Dagenham & Redbridge

The odds on the Fleet being paired with Dagenham & Redbridge an hour after the announcement that Kenny Clark had signed for the Essex club would have been fairly long, but such is football, and knockout competitions in particular, that such a scenario presents itself this Saturday. Add to that a reunion between the Fleet’s new manager and the club…
