Hartlepool United 0-1 Fleet

Few observers gave the Fleet much chance of making it a third 1-0 win in a row at Hartlepool, but Kevin Watson’s men did just that to maintain an unbeaten record against the home side, writes Mark Halliday. A late Gozie Ugwu penalty, the striker’s 13th goal of the season and 11th in the league,…

Maidenhead United 1-3 Fleet

Fleet got the win their precarious position absolutely demanded with a superb first-half response and a stalwart second-half stand that brought them to within five points of their opponents. Josh Umerah equalised a dubious early Maidenhead goal and Gozie Ugwu fired two efforts within a minute of each other on the half-hour for the points….

Enfield Town 0-2 Fleet

Quickfire Fleet landed in the Second Round of the Buildbase FA Trophy as Alex Reid’s goal after 53 seconds sent them on their way. Gozie Ugwu added a second and Jordan Holmes saved a penalty as the visitors recorded a welcome clean sheet. Fleet made two changes, with Lawrie Wilson and Tomi Adeloye starting, Myles…

Fleet 2-3 Notts County

Sixteen years apart, it took another last-minute Notts County goal at the Swanscombe End to steal a replay at Meadow Lane from Fleet’s grasp. This time, however, the home fans were convinced they were at least in the draw for Round 2 after Gozie Ugwu’s penalty a minute from time had levelled the scores. It…

Fleet 2-2 Chesterfield

Gozie Ugwu might not have scored goals in a blue shirt but he got two against them this afternoon to bring his total to five in the last three games. Fleet came from behind and then led in the second half as they secured a useful point, these two in-form sides slugging it out in…

Chorley 0-4 Fleet

Victory at Victory Park was all Kevin Watson asked of his men but even he might not have foreseen such a comprehensive victory as Fleet blasted four goals away from home for the first time since New Year’s Day, writes Mark Halliday. Chorley might well feel aggrieved not to have mounted more resistance to that…

First to the ball for last-gasp goal

Gozie Ugwu has been the man on penalties duty for the Fleet all season but there was just one problem – his side haven’t been awarded one for months on end! The striker admitted that as a result it was “up in the air” as to who might take it so he had to grab…

Fleet 1-2 Aldershot Town

Had the Fleet approached the first 80 minutes as they did the last 10, this result might have been very different – but unfortunately the first 80 minutes made for very difficult viewing. Garry Hill will have his players in for training this Sunday, saying they didn’t earn a day off having not turned up…

Lucky charm Gozie reopens his account

The last time Gozie Ugwu scored for the Fleet – against Wrexham – was the last time fans cheered a National League victory. Indeed, bar one game out of seven in which he’s scored, Fleet have won every time Ugwu has found the net and this afternoon was no exception. Ugwu pounced on 18 minutes…

Boreham Wood 1-2 Fleet

Fleet got the morale-boosting win the fans have craved throughout August as they kept Boreham Wood at bay to move off the bottom of the table. Ten-man Wood pushed the Fleet all the way after a third-minute sending off and early goals by James Ball and Gozie Ugwu. That looked like it had wrapped up…
