Wasteful Fleet Town let points slip againBy Jon Couch
December 20, 2012
A 38TH-MINUTE header from Kyle Cartwright snatched the points for promotion-seeking Daventry as goal-shy Fleet Town were left to rue another game which slipped through their fingers.
Missed chances seem to be par for the course for the Blues these days – and this was no different as Craig Davis’ men squandered yet more opportunities to at least take a share of the spoils, if not all three points.
Danilo Cadete twice missed early efforts for the hosts before Daventry found their feet with Ashley Robinson and Jaime Gould both going close.
And the pressure finally told seven minutes from time when Cartwright’s header from a corner just eluded Fleet keeper Ryan Pryce.
Defender Phil Moore forced a fine save from Richard Morris after the break while Ben White’s effort from a good position sailed harmlessly over the bar as Fleet failed to find a way through.
“I get as frustrated as everyone else about our lack of goals,” Davis said.
“Yet we’re just an inch away from being a very good side.
"We play some great stuff and I’m proud of the manner we play. Our lads work so hard, they will get better.”
Davis, whose side cruised past Overton Town 6-0 in the Basingstoke Senior Cup on Tuesday night, entertain Chalfont St Peter on Saturday (December 22).
