Ebbsfleet United aim to capitalise on any possible distractions affecting opponents Mansfield Town
By Craig Tucker
Ebbsfleet are aiming to take advantage if Mansfield’s players
have Liverpool on their minds on Saturday.
Town will host the Premier League club in the FA Cup third round
if they beat Lincoln in a replay on Wednesday.
Fleet dropped back into the Blue Square Bet Premier bottom four
after a 4-2 home defeat by Cambridge on Tuesday. It was their first
defeat in seven league games and they are looking to bounce back at
Fleet boss Liam Daish (pictured), who could welcome back league
player-of-the-month Nathan Elder from an ankle injury, is unsure
how the hosts will be feeling in light of the cup draw.
He said: "Liverpool may be on their minds, it depends on the
individual. There must be a lot of excitement up there with such a
big prize at stake if they win their replay but all we can do is
concentrate on our own game.
"It’s hard to say if it gives us a better chance because we
don’t know how their camp are seeing things but it will be a tough
"I’d love to be in their position but for us it’s all about
trying to get three points on Saturday."
