Match ends, Salford City 1, Ebbsfleet United 1.
Salford slipped off the top of the National League table as they dropped points unexpectedly in a 1-1 draw at home to Ebbsfleet.
Graham Alexander's men started the day locked level on points with Wrexham but were off their game and fell behind when Corey Whiteley rattled in a fine strike with 35 minutes gone.
The lead would only last three minutes as Rory Gaffney would not be denied after his first effort was saved by Nathan Ashmore.
Gaffney would go close again later on, before Carl Piergianni was denied by Ashmore as Salford probed for an elusive winner.
