Ebbsfleet United 4-0 FC Halifax Town

Michael Cheek scored twice as Ebbsfleet eased to a comfortable home win over FC Halifax in the National League.

Ebbsfleet led when a long throw was left by the Halifax defence, and as the ball bounced in the area, Cheek nipped in to poke home the opener.

Josh Staunton had Halifax's first effort of note, but his shot was well off target, and with half-time approaching, Chris Bush floated a free-kick into the top corner to double the lead.

Danny Kedwell made it 3-0 from the penalty spot early in the second half after Cheek was brought down in the area, and Cheek added his second when he headed in from a late free-kick.
