Dover Athletic 1-1 Ebbsfleet United

Promoted Ebbsfleet's unbeaten start in the National League extended to seven matches after a 1-1 fightback at Dover.

Ryan Bird opened the scoring for the hosts after 17 minutes, nodding in an inviting cross from Mitch Pinnock.

Further chances were few and far between, and it looked as if the Stonebridge club might be heading for a first loss.

However, Darren McQueen collected a long ball flicked on by Danny Kedwell and kept his composure superbly to equalise in the 76th minute.

Daryl McMahon's resilient side have drawn six of their seven matches so far but can still boast a 30-match unbeaten league record since Boxing Day 2016.
