Ebbsfleet are not quite secure in the Skrill South play-offs yet after they were beaten 1-0 by struggling Maidenhead on Monday.
Defeat in Berkshire left fourth-placed Fleet on 68 points, ahead of Havant & Waterlooville on goal-difference and two points clear of Dover, in sixth.
Ebbsfleet and Havant both have a game in hand over the Whites, so both clubs just need to win one of their last two games - or draw both - to ensure a top-five finish.
The only goal of the game was set up by former Fleet player Lanre Azeez, who set up Danny Green for a shot which had just enough pace on it to beat Preston Edwards.
Michael Corcoran had a shot turned against the bar for the visitors, although Maidenhead could have added to their tally in the closing stages.
Ebbsfleet will qualify for the play-offs if they win at Concord Rangers on Thursday. The game is set to be replayed in full after being abandoned last Tuesday, with the Fleet 2-0 up and 52 minutes played. The Fleet have, however, appealed to the FA against that decision and a hearing will take place on Wednesday.
