Tom Bonner insists the Ebbsfleet squad is not concerned by their form at Stonebridge Road, which has failed to live up to the club’s exemplary away record this season.

Fleet have enjoyed a superb start to the campaign, winning 11 out of 16 National League South games and cementing themselves as early leaders in the division.

Daryl McMahon’s side have only claimed one point from their last four home games, but Bonner is adamant Ebbsfleet’s home record will soon match performances on the road.

He said: “It’s not a huge concern, I think it’s just one of those things and a blip.

“We’re not getting the results but we have played fairly well at home.

“We’re confident that we won’t take long – we just need a goal to settle us and the crowd down and hopefully we’ll be on our way.”

Ebbsfleet’s quest for a home win stretched to four games after Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Oxford.

But Bonner, 27, believes the hosts deserved all three points from the top-of-the-table clash.

“I thought we played really well on Saturday,” he said.

“It was a good performance overall and at times we played some really nice football.

“They scored through an unbelievable strike and when that happens you need to regroup and find your way back into the game.

“We knew it would be a tough game but we felt as if we were in control really and it felt comfortable at the back. That’s a good sign for this team.”

After the visitors grabbed the lead through a fantastic free-kick routine, dependable forward Matt Godden equalised for Ebbsfleet with his ninth goal of the season.

“Matt’s been fantastic and he’s a top finisher,” Bonner added.

“His conversion rate must be up there because whenever he gets a chance he seems to score.

“His goals will always get noticed but he also works hard for the team and isn’t even playing in his favoured position sometimes.

“He’s scoring goals from the wing or just off the forward which is impressive, hopefully he can keep his run going.”
