Maidenhead United 1-3 Ebbsfleet United

Ebbsfleet improved their National League survival hopes, coming from behind to win at relegation rivals Maidenhead.

The hosts took the lead at York Road in the ninth minute when Jayden Mundle-Smith steered home a Josh Smile corner.

However, Fleet responded impressively, scoring three goals in 15 minutes to take control of the contest.

Josh Umerah curled in the equaliser eight minutes later, then Gozie Ugwu blasted the visitors in front after half-an-hour following good work by Adam Mekki.

Soon after it was 3-1, with Ugwu again on target, beating goalkeeper Taye Ashby-Hammond with a powerful shot.

The second half did not have the same excitement and the visitors held on without too many uncomfortable moments.

The three points enabled Ebbsfleet to move to within five points of Maidenhead, who occupy the final position of safety.
