Dover Athletic 1-1 Ebbsfleet United

Dover slipped to second-from-bottom in the National League despite ending a four-match losing run with a 1-1 draw at home to Kent rivals Ebbsfleet.

Darren McQueen gave the visitors an early lead as his low left-footed shot from outside the area ended a goal drought of more than a year.

Connor Essam levelled the match as he found himself in space in the middle of the box and headed Mitch Brundle's wide free-kick from wide past Nathan Ashmore.

Fleet had the better of the chances to win it after the break, but neither side could find a breakthrough.
