Ebbsfleet Utd 3-2 AFC Telford

Telford remain four points above the Blue Square Bet Premier drop-zone after losing 3-2 to 10-man Ebbsfleet.

Paul Lorraine saw red for an elbow on Kyle Perry before Ebbsfleet went ahead through Michael West's free-kick.

Liam Enver-Marum doubled their lead after slotting home West's through-ball before he fired past keeper Ryan Young from 25 yards for 3-0.

Telford pulled one back through Adam Proudlock before Ryan Brooke's powerful 12-yard strike set up a nervy finish.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Ebbsfleet United manager Liam Daish told BBC Radio Kent:

"I'm really pleased with the three points and appreciative of the players' effort with one man down.

"We worked really hard, stayed bold and it paid off. It's come at a price, we had a lot of tired legs and players were running on empty in the end.

"I've got no argument for the sending off, it was a silly thing to do."
