AFC Telford 0-2 Ebbsfleet Utd

Ebbsfleet moved out of the Blue Square Bet Premier relegation zone with an away victory at AFC Telford.

Jamie Darvill followed up after his initial shot was saved by Bucks keeper Ryan Young.

Fleet doubled their lead after the interval when Darvill found experienced striker Calum Willock and he expertly steered past Young.

Chris Sharp forced a save from visiting keeper Preston Edwards late on but the hosts were well beaten.


Telford manager Andy Sinton told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"There's something amiss and I'll try and back them [the players] to the hilt and stand by them when they're having a go but we didn't have a go.

"That was probably as bad as it gets.

"I'm very frustrated, very annoyed, just ask the players because they're going to have to come up with some answers."

Ebbsfleet manager Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent:

"I'm pleased, especially after what the lads put in on Tuesday in a high-profile game (against Luton).

"It's a lovely place to come, lovely pitch, lovely ground, so it was a good day and I'm pleased for the lads, they all played their part.

"I saw a lot of confidence come back to the players. We're getting more physical, being strong on the ball, not being pushed off. We were quicker than them and the way we played caused them problems."
