Ebbsfleet United boss Daryl McMahon on the visit of Guiseley FC

By Steve Tervet

Manager Daryl McMahon has branded the National League table irrelevant ahead of Ebbsfleet’s home game against struggling Guiseley on Saturday.

The Yorkshire side are one place and one point off the bottom and have won only three matches all season.

By contrast Fleet have won four of their last five home games and could close to within two points of the play-offs this weekend.

But McMahon said: “Every week the league table’s becoming less relevant. It changes every week.

“I don’t know how many times the top spot has changed but it must be a record number already.

“Guiseley have changed their manager to Paul Cox, who’s very experienced at this level. He’s a winner, he’s managed in the Football League with Mansfield and they’ll probably only have three or four players in their starting XI that played against us in the first game of the season.

“They’ll be scrapping to get out of that position as quickly as they can and they’ve got a manager who will believe he can get them out of there.

“They’ll be organised, competitive, get it forward to the front men quickly and do the basics well.

“We’ve got to match that but we know we’ve got quality in our ranks and we’ve got to produce that again. In the home games of late, we definitely have and we’ve got to do it again.”

Dave Winfield (knee) resumed full training this week but Saturday’s game may come just too soon for the club captain to make his long-awaited return to action. Bradley Bubb (hamstring) and Jack Payne (knee) are still not fit but Fleet have no fresh injury concerns.
