Fleet Team Today @ FGR

Pinnock on for Abbey already... Abbey's getting hot under the collar with the ref by all accounts.

 

Baptiste puts Margate 1-0 up. God, this is depressing.

Roy Essendoah, two goals! (That's 2-1 by the way, not 2 zillion-trillion to one)

We've made a lot of ground on Telford, Scarborough, Halifax and Burton lately... one of them might do a Southport if they're not careful.

The gap between the bottom 3 and the rest is now 6 points, and those above the bottom 3 have games in hand on the bottom 3 as well - unless someone does do a Southport, its very hard to see anyone else slipping back to the bottom 3 - we have a 10 point gap on Farnborough and a game in hand.

 

Its good to see that the only sides in the bottom half of the table to get points were us, Margate and Tamworth (3 each) and Northwich (1)

 

So we're now only 5 points adrift of Dagenham in 11th - albeit that several sides around us have games in hand on us. It just goes to show how little the difference is between most of the sides in this league.

Farnborough have home games to come against Accrington, Burton, Dagenham, Halifax and Shrewsbury - not an easy set of home games - together with Forest Green, Us, Margate, Northwich and Telford, away.Whilst that should be easier as all are in bottom half of table, they're still not going to be the easiest games to get points from.

 

Leigh have Exeter, Halifax, Scarborough, Barnet and Shrewsbury away and Burton, us, Hereford, Northwich, Margate and Telford at home. Whilst they might pick up a few points from their home games, its hard to see them getting a minimum of 15 points from those fixtures.

 

Northwich must be considered dead and buried.

 

Without doubt, if we win the games against Farnborough,Leigh, Northwich and Tamworth, we'll comfortably be safe and in reality, a couple of wins should be enough.Mind you, I think we should set our sights higher - we should beat last years points total &, with a bit of luck,finish in a better league position as well.

At this stage last season we were in 18th place with 34pts. Out of the remaining 11 games, 7 were against bottom half teams and we won 1 lost 1 drew 5.

 

Some tough games remaining this season and looks like 3pts from the 4 teams below us would give us 48pts, last season's total. Any other points picked up a bonus.

 

Well done the Fleet today. Let's have a good performance at home next week.

In the 31 equivalent games from last season (substituting the 2 relegated sides, Shrewsbury & Exeter for Doncaster and Yeovil, and the 3 promoted teams for those that were relegated), we are actually 3 points down - home form has worsened - 23 points from the same games last season compared to 16 this, but away form has improved - 20 points this season compared to 16 last.

 

I think we'll struggle to get anything from Aldershot & Shrewsbury, and Accrington as well, but we can get at least a point from the Telford, Leigh and Dagenham away games.

 

We should be able to go unbeaten at home for the rest of the season

I'm not so confident about that, Alan - we've got Barnet at home in a few weeks, who won 3-1 at Morecambe today - a side notorious for their excellent home form. In fact, the next four games are all tough (Morecambe, Aldershot, Barnet and Shrewsbury), but at least we picked up the points today in readiness for this run of games, and now have an even bigger gap between ourselves and the drop zone.

As mentioned on other threads, the team's second half performance completely outshone the first half today - oddly, not long ago it always seemed to be the other way round. Roy took his goals well (it's a shame we've only got him on loan) and Wilko made a great reflex save to preserve our lead towards the end.

Just like last year, we were made to feel very welcome by FGR - a charming club.
