Ebbsfleet United 1-0 Barnet

Danny Kedwell struck an 84th-minute winner as in-form Ebbsfleet defeated Barnet at the Kuflink Stadium.

The hosts, who are now unbeaten in eight National League games, had chances to take a first-half lead but Michael Cheek saw his effort cleared off the line and Lawrie Wilson fired over.

Barnet, who had lost three of their previous four league games but have also progressed to the third round of the FA Cup, responded after the break and Mo Bettamer was denied by Nathan Ashmore.

Wesley Fonguck and Jack Taylor also had chances for the visitors before Cody McDonald fired wide for Ebbsfleet.

It would be the hosts who would claim the spoils in the end, though, as substitute Bagasan Graham set up veteran striker Kedwall to fire home late on.
