Preview | Ebbsfleet United (a)

Words Joe Brayne | Pictures Jonathan Moore

ALTY travel to Kent this Saturday (3pm) as we face Ebbsfleet United at The Kuflink Stadium in our penultimate Vanarama National League match of 2023/24.

The Robins (5th, 71pts) remain in playoff contention despite being held to a 0-0 draw away at Dorking Wanderers last weekend, with neither side producing a moment of magic needed to break the deadlock.

Meanwhile, the Fleet (18th, 52pts) are in search of a victory that will confirm their survival in England’s fifth tier, having won eight of their 12 matches under manager Danny Searle.

The Gaffer

Resilience in defeat: “We are a really steely, determined team and that is why we have had a number of clean sheets this season. Our back five, back six, is the reason we find ourselves where we are. Front lines win you games, defences win you championships.”

Final push for playoffs: “Hopefully our fans can come and get behind us again (on the road). I know it is a massive ask, the travel and the finances, but hopefully, we are giving them a season where it has all been worthwhile.”

Last time against Ebbsfleet United

Altrincham 6-1 Ebbsfleet United (Alex Newby 4’, Lewis Baines 15’, 90’+3, Justin Donowa 31’, Chris Conn-Clarke 45’, 90+1’)

Last September – A scintillating six-goal Robins victory at The J. Davidson Stadium snapped a five-match winless streak in the Vanarama National League.

Alty left the visiting Ebbsfleet shell shocked before the break, having blazed to a 4-1 lead, before turning the screw further in the second half with goals from Chris Conn-Clarke and Lewis Baines.
