League victory number one priority for Ebbsfleet boss
EBBSFLEET manager Steve Brown admits a league win is more important to him than progress in the cup competitions.
Brown’s side begin their FA Cup campaign on Saturday with a Stonebridge Road Kent derby encounter with Isthmian Division One South strugglers Folkestone Invicta.
They then face a Kent Cup trip at Sittingbourne on Tuesday evening before resuming their Conference South campaign on October 5 at Weston-super-Mare.
And with only one league victory to their name so far, Brown denied he is looking forward to taking a break from Conference South football to concentrate on the cups.
“No, if I’m honest,” he said.
“I’d rather try and get three points quickly.
“The game does me an opportunity to give a few players who haven’t featured a game, though.
“I want to progress in the FA Cup, don’t get me wrong, so in that respect, I’ll go into the Folkestone game trying to win it.
“It’s the same with the Kent Senior Cup on Tuesday.
“Obviously the one we want to win, though, is a home match in the league.”
