Skipper Daryl McMahon insists it doesn't matter how Ebbsfleet play in the Skrill South play-offs - as long as they win.

McMahon's passing game in central midfield typifies the sort of free-flowing football Fleet manager Steve Brown wants to play, but now results are paramount ahead of a keenly-anticipated semi-final against local rivals Bromley.

McMahon said: "No-one likes to pass the ball more than me, in this league probably. I’m known for that, that I like to get the ball down and play, but winning’s the most important thing at this moment, especially with the pressure we’re under and the expectation on the club.

"The most important thing is that we win and if we can do that playing good football, happy days.

"We’ve played Bromley three times this year, including the FA Trophy, and they’ll be two good games, local games. We’re looking forward to them.

"I’ve said it before, but as a group and as a club, we’ve come so far forward in one season compared to where it was. It’s great to be part of it and everyone’s the same."
