Ebbsfleet manager Jamie Day was pleased with the way his side responded to an early setback in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Bishop’s Stortford.

Stortford took the lead after 10 minutes through Scott Sellears, before Danny Kedwell equalised for the hosts on the half hour by heading in from a Theo Lewis free-kick.

Both sides struggled for a breakthrough after the break and Day was left satisfied with the result.

“Going into it we’d like to get three points because of the position we’re in in the league,” he said.

“But it was a boggy pitch and although we had chances, I don’t think we played particularly great in the second half.

“We can play a lot better, but we dug in and got a point. We look to get three in every game but we didn’t get beat.

“I’m disappointed with the goal early on because I think we should have dealt better with it and you want a base to work with for the rest of the game.

“But we showed a good bit of character to dust ourselves down and carry on with the game.

“I thought first half we played pretty well and second half we had the better of it.”

It was Kedwell’s third goal since joining last month from League One side Gillingham and Day was happy with the contributions of all his signings.

“Kedwell’s worked his socks off since he’s come in and got three goals, and it’s the same for Adam Cunnington,” said the Fleet chief.

“They’ve worked well off each other, Adam’s obviously got a few more but they’re all putting in a shift for the team.

“You’ve got two good forwards and you’ve got Tyrone and Matt Godden, so they’ll contribute goals but it’s a group thing and the group will get us hopefully where we want to be.”

Ebbsfleet are now unbeaten in three in the Conference South and lie six points off the play-offs.

They next face high-flying Bromley on Tuesday night and Day insisted his side will look to win the game at Stonebridge Road.

“We’re still confident we can get into the play-offs, we obviously need to get some wins on the board,” he said.

“Bromley is going to be a tough game, they’re doing very well at the minute and they’re on a good bit of form.

“They’ve got good players that can win games but if we turn up and play anywhere like we know we’re capable of then we can get a result.

“We’ll be positive and go into it trying to win the game because we know we need to catch the teams above us. It could be one bit of magic gets you the three points.”
