Ebbsfleet United host Aldershot Town on Tuesday night

By Steve Tervet

Ebbsfleet continue a week of big games by hosting Aldershot at Stonebridge Road under the lights.

Tuesday's game comes three days after Fleet were held 1-1 at Chester - their seventh consecutive draw in the National League.

And with Tranmere coming to town on Saturday, it's a run of games which epitomises the strength of the division Daryl McMahon's side spent four years trying to reach.

"We can’t wait," said the Fleet manager. "We’ve had a week, before Saturday of playing against three ex-League clubs. We’ve got one down and now we’ve got two home games.

"Aldershot play some fantastic football, Gary Wadock’s a good coach and a good manager and he’s got some very good players over there.

"The challenges are great and we’re looking forward to them.

"They're two tough games but we’re tough as well. We’ve obviously got too many draws but we’re hard to beat. We want to turn these draws into wins and hopefully put in some good performances as well."

Defender Jack Connors and midfielder Myles Weston are both fit again so Dave Winfield and Bradley Bubb are now the only players on Ebbsfleet's injury list.
