Manager Liam Daish says victory has buoyed Ebbsfleet United ahead of two crucial games
By Steve Tervet
Ebbsfleet are gearing up for a week which could make or break
their survival bid at the bottom of Blue Square Bet Premier.
Saturday’s home game against Stockport County is followed by the
visit of Hereford United on Tuesday and manager Liam Daish
(pictured) admitted the double-header was "massive" for his
Victory over fellow strugglers Gateshead last weekend has
brought the feelgood factor back to Stonebridge Road.
The Fleet must build on that result if they are to drag
themselves closer to safety and Daish has urged his players to draw
confidence from their performance against the Tynesiders.
He said: "It’s going to be a massive week for us. We’re still
bottom, we know that, but we’re 90 minutes from another win.
"The players dug in on Saturday and you feel better about
yourself the whole week, leading into the next game. It tees us up
for a big week next week."
The Fleet will be without midfielder Ashley Carew as he
completes a three-game suspension but Joe Howe should be fit
despite hobbling off during the win over Gateshead.
