Ten-man Ebbsfleet claimed a dramatic victory against bottom club Bath.

Nathaniel Pinney's close range effort had given the visitors the lead, before Bath levelled when Gethin Jones headed home Lewis Hogg's cross.

Preston Edwards then saw red for the Fleet, but they managed to regain the lead when Ricky Shakes fired home.

Gozie Ugwu claimed the visitors' third with a neat finish before the hosts' Sean Canham set up a nervy ending with a shot from just inside the box.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Ebbsfleet manager Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent:

"It was a massive three points for us, the biggest three points of the season for where we are, but it was a tough game.

Daish hails 'important' Ebbsfleet win

"I can't say how important those points are.

"When Ricky (Shakes) comes on he's got that pace and directness and he took his goal superbly. But everyone who came on and got involved played their part.

"He (Preston Edwards) has had a rush of blood. It's been highlighted before where he's come out and got involved, and he's overstepped the mark, I'm very disappointed with him."
