St Albans City v Ebbsfleet United


St Albans City were beaten 3-0 at Clarence Park by second in the table Ebbsfleet United on Saturday.

It was a fifth National League South loss in a row for the Saints who sit ninth in the standings.

The game was settled by the half-time with United already 3-0 up.

Sam Deering gave them a 28th minute lead tucking in past James Russell and seven minutes later it was 2-0.

Jack Powell doubled the lead with a curling direct free-kick into the top corner.

The third was to come when City’s Joe Robinson failed to clear and Danny Kedwell capitalised.

The second half saw Ebbsfleet take their foot off the gas, with Saints unable to pull a goal back to put them under pressure.

Next up for St Albans is a trip to Gosport on Saturday.
