Hawks V Ebbsfleet Match preview

By Henry Deacon (@H_Deaconmedia)

Havant and Waterlooville will be looking to begin their National League farewell with three points against Ebbsfleet United on Good Friday.

A 3-2 defeat to Solihull Moors last weekend confirmed the Hawks' relegation back to The National League South, following a season in the top flight of Non-League football. 

The first of our final three games is up against Garry Hill's Ebbsfleet United, who's recent upturn in form sees them within a matter of points of Eastleigh and the final National League play-off spot. 

The reverse fixture on a wet afternoon in Kent saw the Hawks draw 1-1 with the Fleet. 

Aaron Cosgrave opened the scoring early on in the game, before being pegged back midway through the first half thanks to a goal by Michael Cheek from distance. 

Havant will be looking to finish the season positively ahead of a return to the National League South in August, with games against Aldershot at the EBB Stadium on Monday and a home game against Barnet a week Saturday serving as a warm up to next season. 

Since Hill's arrival, the form of the Fleet has been one of the most impressive in The National League. Over their past 10 games, the Kent based outfit have picked up 16 points, the seventh best in that time and were top of the form table prior to Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to Dagenham and Redbridge. 

The game at Westleigh Park kicks off at 3pm with tickets priced at £16 Adults, £9 Concessions, £6 for Portsmouth FC Season Ticket holders and £2 for Concessions. Turnstiles will open from 1:45.
