Harrogate Town 2-0 Ebbsfleet United

Brendan Kiernan scored twice as Harrogate made it three National League wins in a row with victory against Ebbsfleet.

Kiernan had an early effort saved and Mark Beck hit a post as Harrogate started brightly.

Alex Reid went close for Fleet but Kiernan put Harrogate in front just before half-time, finishing neatly from a narrow angle.

Home keeper James Belshaw made a sharp save from Gozie Ugwu before Kiernan doubled the lead from Ryan Fallowfield's deflected cross.

Defender Lawrie Wilson prevented him completing a hat-trick but the two goals were enough, with Myles Weston's shot just wide the closest Ebbsfleet came to a response.
