Preview: Ebbsfleet United vs Solihull Moors
*A full match preview ahead of tomorrow's Vanarama National League clash - by Matt Roberts*
PUBLISHED: 9th Feb 18

Solihull Moors travel to Ebbsfleet United in the Vanarama National League. Here’s your full match preview…

The Moors have moved up in to 21st place in the table whilst Ebbsfleet have dropped to 12th.

Form

The Moors are going into the game on top of the form table having been unbeaten in their previous five games with 4 wins and one draw. The latest victory came on the road against Dagenham where two goals on his debut for Adi Yussuf capped off a dominant and impressive performance.

Ebbsfleet have been struggling as of late. Defeats away at Tranmere and at home to Boreham Wood, coupled with a shock exit out of the FA Trophy to Warrington Town has meant Daryl McMahon’s side have dropped to 12th place after an impressive start to the season.

In the opposite dugout

Daryl McMahon was appointed as permanent manager of The Fleet in 2015. He had originally been appointed on a caretaker basis following the departure of Jamie Day. The 34 year old, who is one of the youngest managers in the National League, guided Ebbsfleet to promotion in 2016-17 by recording a 2-1 victory over Chelmsford City in the National League South play-off final.

Opposition key man

Danny Kedwell (Striker) – The experienced striker, who is also vice-captain, has netted 12 times this season in the league and is top scorer for the Reds.

A quote from the Assistant Manager

Tim Flowers: “They’re a good side, big and powerful. They’ve got some big players, physical side and can knock it around a bit as well so it’ll be a tough game”.

The last time the two sides met

The Moors hosted Ebbsfleet in the first match between the sides back in early October. Goals from Weston & Kedwell gave the visitors the lead at half time. The comeback looked to be on after Darren Carter’s deflected free-kick found the back of the net but Danny Mills slotted home seven minutes from time to give The Fleet all three points. This turned out to be the last game for then Solihull Moors manager Liam McDonald.

Did you know?

The number 5 shirt was taken from skipper Dave Winfield following a social media bandwagon to give it to defender Yado Mambo following their televised 2-1 win over Leyton Orient. “Mambo No 5” is the title of Lou Bega’s infamous 1999 number one hit. The shirt was auctioned off by the club and raised £1,650.00 with all proceeds going to Prostate Cancer UK.
