Ebbsfleet United 1-1 Maidstone United

Maidstone battled back to secure a 1-1 draw in their National League trip to Ebbsfleet.

There had been little to choose between the sides during the first half, with the best chance falling just before the break as Maidstone forward Jake Cassidy fired over after the ball broke to him from a free-kick.

As the hour mark approached, Cassidy went close again when he sent a close-range header wide, and Ebbsfleet took the lead soon after.

Defender Kenny Clark produced a smart turn, to hook the ball past goalkeeper Grant Smith on 58 minutes.

Yet Maidstone equalised with 15 minutes left after defender William De Havilland headed in from a corner.

The visitors had another good chance late on when winger Blair Turgott was sent clear, but his shot was blocked.
