Kenny Clark strike sends Ebbsfleet into play-off places

Ebbsfleet moved into the National League play-off places with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Eastleigh.
Home keeper Ross Flitney twice denied Luke Coulson early on and made brilliant saves from Kenny Clark and Corey Whitely, while Nathan Ashmore thwarted Reda Johnson and Mark Yeates at the other end.
Cav Miley's goal-line clearance denied Ebbsfleet's top score Danny Kedwell, while Ashmore saved Chris Zebroski's long-range strike at the other end.
Eastleigh were awarded a penalty when Sam Matthews was brought down but Ashmore kept out Paul McCallum's effort.
And Ebbsfleet punished their hosts when substitute Jonathan Powell's corner was headed in by defender Clark in the 82nd minute to seal the points.
