Ebbsfleet United moved out of the relegation zone after coming from behind to beat Macclesfield.

The Silkmen took the lead just before the break when striker Chris Holroyd headed home Charlie Henry's cross.

Fleet were level 12 minutes after the restart when Phil Walsh got on the end of Ashley Carew's outswinging corner.

Nathan Elder completed the turnaround when he scored a penalty four minutes from time after being fouled by defender Carl Martin.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Ebbsfleet manager Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent:

"To get any win away from home is a big result and it was massive for us, getting two wins on the spin.

"Second half we went out and deserved our win and I don't think anyone can complain.

"I don't think we got any luck, as such. We worked very hard for that win, from 1-0 down against a strong side and deserved everything we got."
