Ebbsfleet United 0-0 Tranmere Rovers

Ten-man Tranmere had to settle for a point at Ebbsfleet as they continued to toil in front of goal.

James Norwood had the best chance of the first half, narrowly steering the ball wide of the near post from Jay Harris' cross after 17 minutes, but it was a familiar story for a side who have only netted eight times in 11 games.

Hopes of turning that around were dealt a blow when Jay McEveley picked up his second yellow card to see red after pulling back Myles Weston three minutes after the break.

Tranmere goalkeeper Scott Davies had to be at his best to deny Danny Mills from close range late on to preserve a point for his side.
