Ebbsfleet United 0-0 Gateshead

Ebbsfleet extended their unbeaten start to the season to six matches as they played out a goalless draw against Gateshead at Stonebridge Road.

The hosts dominated in spells during the first half and defender Chris Bush came close to opening the scoring on the brink of half-time, but his header from Jack Powell's corner landed on the roof of the net.

Gateshead almost had a half-chance through Jordan Burrow just after the hour mark, but Yado Mambo stopped him in his tracks before he became too dangerous as the visitors began to press back.

The result sees Daryl McMahon's home side move up a spot to 10th in the National League table, while the Heed remain sixth.

Prior to the match, Ebbsfleet announced the signing of defender Jean-Yves Koue Niate after a successful trial period.

The 24-year-old Frenchman had a spell with National League side Solihull last season, before joining Oxford City.
