Nathan Elder scored twice, the second a last-minute equaliser, to rescue a point for Ebbsfleet against Dartford.

Jon Wallis put Dartford in front from 18 yards before turning provider when his free-kick was tapped in by top scorer Harry Crawford to make it 2-0.

Elder turned in a cross from Liam Enver-Marum to halve the deficit.

He then struck again in stoppage time, converting Adam Williams's pass to keep Ebbsfleet off the bottom of the Blue Square Bet Premier table.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Ebbsfleet United manager Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent:

"We scored at the right time, and from then on it was all us. The lads have shown a lot of belief.

"If we had scored the equaliser a bit earlier I think we would have gone on to win it. I think we've deserved that point at the very least.

"The more missed chances that slip by, we could have gone on and felt sorry for ourselves saying it's not going to be our day but we didn't, we kept on plugging away."
