Ebbsfleet United will set a new club record for consecutive wins if they beat Sutton United in Skrill South
History will be made this weekend if Ebbsfleet beat Skrill South promotion rivals Sutton at Stonebridge Road.
A ninth straight win would set a new club record as well as lifting the Fleet above their big-spending visitors.
Victory at Whitstable in the FA Trophy last Saturday equalled the record and set up a trip to Havant & Waterlooville in the last-16.
But the visit of Sutton is Ebbsfleet’s most important game of the season so far
and it precedes festive fixtures against Kent rivals Bromley – twice – and Dover.
Fleet boss Steve Brown said: "Every time we go into a game, it’s like a must-win game. I see Sutton as another must-win game and we should be full of confidence.
"We’re 14 wins in 17 games, which is an astonishing run. I don’t think there’s enough credit given to the players or to us as staff for the turnaround from that stuttering start we had.
"It’s a tough Christmas period. We’ll see where we’re at come the start of January – if we’re within shouting distance, I fancy us."
