Ebbsfleet United 3-2 Barrow

Managerless Barrow slipped to defeat at Ebbsfleet in their first match after Micky Moore's departure.

Without a win since early September, Moore was sacked on Tuesday after just eight weeks in charge.

Former Peterborough striker Aaron McLean hammered the ball home for Ebbsfleet after Danny Kedwell nodded Jack Connors' free-kick into his path.

But Nathan Ashmore kept the hosts in front when he smothered Asa Hall's attempt.

McLean's cross-cum-shot was just over the bar, but the action soon switched to the other end, where Bedsente Gomis grabbed a leveller.

Ebbsfleet re-established their lead immediately and emphatically, when Andy Drury and Jack Powell notched two goals inside four minutes to rubber-stamp the victory.

Gomis provided some late comfort for Barrow by completing his brace from close range.
