Derby Clash Will Have Huge Significance

Ebbsfleet United and Bromley clash at Stonebridge Road tonight (Tuesday) in a game of huge significance for the Vanarama Conference South promotion race.

Victory would send Bromley back to the top of the table while a win for Fleet could move them to within three points of the play-off places.

Seven of the division's top 10 clubs are in action on what looks like a potentially pivotal night.

It will be the first time the local rivals have met since the play-offs at the end of last season.

Ebbsfleet manager Jamie Day said: "It's going to be a good game. I think they're going to be the champions.

"They've got a good squad of players and they'll come to us with confidence. They got a point on Saturday which keeps their run going but I'm looking forward to it.

"Hopefully there's a good crowd and good support for the boys and we can get a good result."

There is added spice to the game because two players Day let go only last month have since signed for Bromley.

Winger Anthony Cook, who was voted player-of-the-year by the Ebbsfleet supporters last season, scored 19 goals in 86 appearances for the north Kent club. He and centre-forward Ben May, who played 42 games for the Fleet and scored 12 goals, could both feature for Mark Goldberg's side tonight.

Day said: "Cookie and Ben May left on good terms so it'll be good to see them. Obviously they'll know a bit about us and we'll know about them.

"Bromley have done exceptionally well this year. They did well last year and I think that continues, year on year. In my opinion, I think they'll be the team that will win the league and we need to give a good showing of what we're capable of doing."

Both sides drew 1-1 on Saturday, Ebbsfleet at Bishop's Stortford and Bromley at home to Hayes & Yeading.

Day said: "We'll dust ourselves down, we haven't got beat, it's two unbeaten and we'll take that into Tuesday. We'll hopefully put in a good performance and get a good result."

Kick-off at Stonebridge Road is at 7.45pm.
