Football :Maidstone United’s disappointing run of league form shows no sign of ending after Ebbsfleet United completed the double over the Stones at the Gallagher Stadium.There was a bright start to the game. On two minutes, Sean Shields crossed to Jack Powell but his header was deflected not far wide. Shortly after this, Dave Winfield caught the ball well with a volley from close to the edge of the area but he was denied by a decent block by Magnus Okuonghae.After this the Stones came into the game more.

A poor clearance from Seth Nana Twumasi went straight to Jack Powell who was just inside the box and he picked his spot and sent the ball past Lee Worgan..Full information Inspire Kent Events for Full Story
