Stockport 1-1 Ebbsfleet United

Michael West's late equaliser earned Ebbsfleet their first point of the season with a draw at Stockport.

Liam Enver-Marum hit the crossbar for the visitors with a left-footed shot from the edge of the penalty area.

But Stockport opened the scoring when Nick Chadwick headed home from close-range following Euan Holden's cross.

However, the hosts were denied the victory as Ebbsfleet equalised thanks to West's volley from the edge of the box after good work by Ram Marwa.
