Ebbsfleet make their longest trip of the season this weekend hoping to stay within touching distance of their relegation rivals in Blue Square Bet Premier.

Saturday’s game at Barrow represents a 630-mile round-trip for the Fleet and a crunch clash against one of the other clubs desperately batting to avoid the drop.

The Bluebirds have only won four games at home all season but Ebbsfleet boss Liam Daish (pictured) is concerned only by how his players acquit themselves in Cumbria.

He said: "We’ve got to keep consistent in our performances. We played well against Newport, we were dreadful against Alfreton and then played well against Southport.

"Results aren’t always going to go for us but if we keep consistent in our performances and we come to the end of the season, you can decide then if we’re good enough or not. That might just be down to individual quality and players.

"You’ve got to keep that platform in place to at least give yourself a chance."

The Fleet boss reserved a special mention for Stefan Payne, who returned to the starting line-up for the first time since injuring his foot at Grimsby on February 26.

Daish said: "Getting Stef back was good, getting him playing. He does give you that little bit of directness. A lot of players think they’ve got to put a trick in but he really caused Southport problems."
