BT Sport 2, 5.15pm Saturday

A record of three defeats in four home matches has been holding back Ebbsfleet's promotion push but the Kent side are worthy favourites to defeat Gateshead.

The Fleet drew 1-1 at struggling Dover on Tuesday but should be in better shape for the weekend with key midfielder Andy Drury and striker Danny Kedwell set to return after being rested in midweek.

Gateshead started the season well but have lost their last two away games without scoring and top scorer Luke Armstrong is an injury doubt.

Recommendation
Ebbsfleet
1pt 19-20 Betfred
