Both managers will be looking for a reaction following recent results. Lee Bradbury, the Hawks gaffer is looking for the lads to react from Tuesday Night’s match against Moneyfields, whilst the same will be said by the Fleet manager Daryl McMahon after their 4-1 defeat away to Wrexham last Saturday.
Currently occupying 14thspot in The National League, the Fleet will be looking at the next week’s worth of fixtures as a way of getting back up the table with a home double against first the Hawks on Saturday before taking on Bromley at the Kuflink Stadium on Tuesday Night.
Whilst for the Hawks, a victory could propel us as high as 17thplace in the table should we get a victory on Saturday afternoon. Currently placed at the top of the relegation cut-off in 21st, Lee Bradbury’s side will be hoping to propel their way up the National League table and to occupy a league position perhaps more befitting of their performances this season.
Ebbsfleet go into Saturday’s fixture having won just 1 of their previous 5 matches, with the solitary win coming against Eastleigh at the Silverlake late last month.
Following a good start to the season after making the Play-Off Semi-final’s last term, Ebbsfleet will be looking to be heading up to the right end of the table at the Kent based team look to continue their aspirations towards Football League status.
The Hawks have won just 1 of their last 5 in the league themselves, that coming against Aldershot Town infront of the BT Sport cameras, however two of those fixtures did come against leaders Harrogate and the heavily fancied Hartlepool, which only took 2 penalties to breach the Hawks backline.
And heading to Stonebridge Road is a venue which Hawks fans will be looking to create better memories, with the last fixture resulting in a 7-0 Hawks reverse, ammunition for sure for Lee Bradbury’s men.
Tickets for Saturday’s encounter are £15 for Adults, £12 for Concessions, £7 for Juniors with Under 12’s gaining FREE matchday admission.
There will be NO segregation for the fixture!
Hawks fans travelling to Stonebridge Road should exit from Junction 2 of the M25 and take the A2 for Canterbury. Leave at Northfleet/Gravesend junction before following signs to Ebbsfleet International Station which will eventually lead over to the ground.
It should be noted that there will be limited car parking in and around the ground.
By train, the nearest station from the ground is Northfleet which will turn out to be a short walk, following the road leading out of the station straight down until you reach the stadium.
