Boreham Wood 0-1 Ebbsfleet United
Promoted Ebbsfleet's start to life in the National League reads just one defeat in 12 after a narrow win at Boreham Wood.
After a quiet first period the Wood tried to set the pace early in the second half. The visitors' Nathan Ashmore saw his double save rewarded as Dan Holman turned a third attempt home past the goalkeeper, but was deemed offside.
Ebbsfleet substitute Darren McQueen nearly found the answer, striking the post after a fine solo run, but it looked destined to remain goalless.
But McQueen did draw the foul from Dean Wells that enabled another sub, Danny Kedwell, to place home the winner from the spot in the final 15 minutes.
