Watson seeks that elusive second goal

Fleet boss Kevin Watson conceded that a draw was probably the right result after his side and Sutton United played out a stalemate at the Kuflink Stadium. That was Fleet’s 12th draw of the season and the line between one point and three has often proved a fine one. All of Fleet’s six league wins…

Sutton United 2-3 Fleet

Having not scored against Sutton in five games or won here since 2002, Fleet fans can barely remember anything approaching success at Gander Green Lane.

Fleet fans have long felt they’re due a win against Sutton United – and rarely would one be greeted as warmly than if their side could manage it this weekend.
