Lions Suffer Heavy Defeat at Ebbsfleet

Ebbsfleet hammered sorry Guiseley at Stonebridge Road to move closer to the National League play-off places.

Jack Powell gave Ebbsfleet a lead their early dominance deserved with a fine free-kick after 21 minutes that curled into the top corner to give Guiseley goalkeeper Jonathan Maxted no chance.

Ashley Palmer made things harder for the visitors by bringing down Sean Shields in the box and Danny Kedwell made no mistake from the spot, notching his ninth strike of the season to make it 2-0 just before the break.

Chris Bush headed home after 77 minutes from a corner to make it 3-0, before Myles Weston turned it into a rout two minutes later.

The win moves Ebbsfleet up to 10th, four points off the play-offs, and leaves Guiseley seven points from safety.
