Ebbsfleet United vs AFC Fylde
Saturday 12th August, 2017, k/o 3pm
Vanarama National League
AFC Fylde make the long trip down south to Ebbsfleet United for the second away game of the week.
The Coasters have made a solid start to the new National League campaign and remain unbeaten after two games.
A 2-2 draw against Boreham Wood on the opening day was followed up with an entertaining 1-1 draw at Chester earlier in the week.
Dave Challinor’s side have shown positive signs and took the lead in both matches against established National League sides. Summer signing Jack Muldoon did the damage on Tuesday night with a classy first-time finish at the Swansway Chester Stadium, however the hosts levelled the scores a minute later through Blues midfielder Lucas Dawson.
Prolific frontman Danny Rowe will be hoping to break his goal duck for the season at Stonebridge Road. The striker needs just two goals to equal the club record of 119 goals, set by Richie Allen.
Fylde midfielders Henry Jones and Jonny Smith, who netted the crucial equaliser on the first day of the season, both made their full debut at Chester and could have had a goal each in the thrilling encounter.
Ebbsfleet have made an impressive start to the season with four points from their two games. They kicked off with a 2-2 draw away at Guiseley ahead of Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over Maidstone United.
Managed by Daryl McMahon, Ebbsfleet won promotion to the top tier of Non-League football last season after finishing second in the National League South and triumphing in the Play-Off final.
Down to ten-men in the showpiece event, Ebbsfleet came from behind against Chelmsford City to return to the National League for the first time since 2013.
