Sodje back to haunt the Fleet

GOAL: Onome Sodje
GOAL: Onome Sodje

Ebbsfleet United 1 York 2

FORMER Ebbsfleet striker Onome Sodje made a scoring return to Stonebridge Road as his York side went away with all three points on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead in the 26th minute when Martyn Woolford's corner was headed home by Sodje.

And the same two players combined to doubled York's advantage five minutes after the restart.

Sodje went round Fleet keeper Lance Cronin and Woolford was on hand to score after the striker's effort had come back off the post.

The Fleet pulled a goal back 11 minutes from time when Chris McPhee volleyed home superbly after Raphael Nade's knock-down.

Ebbsfleet thought they had snatched an equaliser in stoppage time but it was controversially ruled out for offside.

Ebbsfleet: Cronin, Hawkins, Smith, Ricketts, Opinel (Coleman 75), McPhee, Bostwick (Barrett 64), Long, Purcell, Moore (Akinde 88), Nade.

Subs Not Used: French, Starkey.

Attendance: 933.
