Ebbsfleet United boss Daryl McMahon on the trip to Wrexham

By Steve Tervet

Daryl McMahon wants Ebbsfleet to show their ugly side at Wrexham on Saturday.

Fleet boast the second-best away record in the National League but that’s in stark contrast to their rotten home form.

Four defeats out of five at Stonebridge Road mean McMahon’s side travel to Wales seven points adrift of the second-placed Red Dragons.

The manager said: “I don’t really care about Wrexham or any team in this league. It’s important we do what we do better.

“We need to go after teams a bit more. We’ve always been a high-tempo team but at the minute we’re placid. We need to be more ugly to find a win.

“I’ve got 21 players and I love all of them but we’re only doing 80% of the job. We need to be better and that extra 20% is the difference.

“We need to find it quickly but there’s no panic buttons here. It’s just frustrating for the amount of ball we have not to turn that into more clear-cut chances and goals.”

Dave Winfield and Kenny Clark could both be fit to face Wrexham while Ebou Adams and Myles Weston are back after international duty.

McMahon said: “There’s a big difference when Winfield and Clark play because they demand off people.

“Every good football team has players demanding off each other and on Saturday we were quiet.

“I’m not quiet and I don’t expect anyone in my group to be quiet. You’re playing football, go and enjoy it, work hard and have a will to win.

“You’ve got to roll your sleeves up home and away to win points. There’s nothing wrong with winning a second ball and scoring rather than having to make 15 passes.”
