Who? – Ebbsfleet United
What? – Vanarama National League South
When? – Saturday 11th December 2021
Where? – Kufflink Stadium
This Saturday, Concord are on the road again as they return to league action to face Ebbsfleet United at the Kufflink Stadium. The Beachboys last time out in the league picked up a 2-2 draw against Braintree however, beat National League side Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 away from home in the Essex Senior Cup on Tuesday so they’ll be desperately looking to bring that form into the league this weekend.
Ebbsfleet United currently sit 4th in the league tableafter a strong run of 6 wins in a row at one point. However, with 3 defeats in their last 3 league games will fuel The Beachboys with confidence that they can get a result from this game. The head-to-head between the two sides definitely favours Ebbsfleet with Concord not beating The Fleet since March 2015.
Ones to watch:
Ebbsfleet United – Dominic Poleon – The pacey centre forward is an ex-Chelsea youth player with over 200 appearances in the EFL. He currently has 9 goals in the league this season and is Ebbsfleet’s top scorer so far so he’ll be looking to carry on his fine form this weekend.
Concord Rangers – Mamadou Jobe – Along withSimper, Mamadou is also on loan from Cambridge and has already made his mark in the Concord defence. With two very solid defensive performances, he also has added a goal to his tally with a header that turned out to be the winner against Dagenham in midweek.
