Fleet Town suffer home blow after defeat by second-in-the-table Bridgwater Town
High-fliers Bridgwater Town proved too strong for Craig Davis’ men as two second-half goals – both from set pieces – saw Fleet Town crash to their first home league defeat of the season.
Davis was left to reflect on a disappointing performance from the Blues, which went punished by second-half goals from Aaron Wilson and Mitchell Page and kept the Somerset side second in the table.
“In the end we didn't pass the ball well enough, and although we still created a lot of good chances, only conceded to two set-piece goals,” Davis said.
“Despite starting on the back foot, we managed to get into the game and missed two or three great chances to score and eventually came in level at half time.
“After that we did what we are in a terrible habit of doing and conceded directly from a free kick. But even after their second goal, we still had a fair few opportunities to score and get something from the game.”
Davis’ men now face a trip this weekend to another top side, Swindon Supermarine – a game brought forward following both clubs’ exit from the FA Cup.
“It’ll be another difficult game,” Davis added. “But we’ll make it tough for them, and I’m confident of a good showing.”
