Ebbsfleet can climb into the National League play-off places when they host Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.
Fleet are chasing a sixth straight home win, against a Daggers side who arrive in Kent two places and two points above them.
The teams played out a 3-3 draw at Victoria Road in August and manager Daryl McMahon insists his team go into the rematch as underdogs.
He said: “Dagenham coming to us, they’ll be the favourites to win the game from where they’ve been in this league and the experience they’ve got as a former League club.
“It’s a game where we can really test ourselves to see where we’re at.
“They’re a team that will definitely be in the play-offs, minimum, by the end of the season and we can really see where we’re at after Saturday.”
Ebbsfleet are one of the form teams in the National League having picked up 10 points from their last four games since back-to-back defeats at Wrexham and Woking.
McMahon said: “We’re getting the same people out more regularly now, which is important. Everyone getting familiar with each other is really important.
“Getting Dave Winfield back in has been important, to give you those leadership qualities, and Danny Kedwell is getting his goals at the minute.
“Lots of things are going for us that we need to kick on in these next few games."
