Ebbsfleet United boss Liam Daish wants his side to be more solid in defence ahead of Macclesfield Town trip

Ebbsfleet have been warned to cut out their indifferent defending ahead of Saturday’s trip north to face Macclesfield.

Manager Liam Daish (pictured) saw his side overhaul a 2-0 deficit to beat Hyde last weekend, four days after they came from behind twice to claim a point at Telford.

While those fightbacks encouraged Daish, he knows the Fleet cannot keep relying on such escape acts.

He said: “There is plenty of spirit, we’ve shown that but we can’t give ourselves such a mountain to climb each time.

“We’ve got to be more resolute in those situations. We’ve had a lot of travelling,but we need to be more in control of situations from the start.

“We’ve got a long trip to Macclesfield and we’ve got to be tight away from home to give ourselves a platform.”

Victory at Macclesfield could lift Daish’s side out of the relegation zone for the first time since early September.

Phil Walsh could return from injury to play some part in Cheshire but Moses Ashikodi (hamstring) is still a doubt.
