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.

Daish pleased with difficult win

"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."
