Ebbsfleet United 0-1 Solihull Moors

Solihull moved up to second in the National League after a bad-tempered win at Ebbsfleet as both sides ended the game with nine men.

Adi Yussuf got the only goal early in the second half, but the real drama came late on as Bagasan Graham and Luke Maxwell were dismissed following a 22-man brawl.

During six minutes of stoppage-time, Dean Rance was also shown a second yellow card, along with Solihull's Danny Wright.

Ebbsfleet keeper Nathan Ashmore had kept his side in the game with a fine double-save after 15 minutes when he kept out Jermain Hylton's header and then the follow-up.

But he could do nothing as Yussuf bundled home Darren Carter's corner after the break for his 13th goal of the season.

Wright missed a late chance to double the lead when he fired over from six yards before he was dismissed in an explosive finale, one of four red cards brandished by referee Peter Gibbons.
