Entertaining clash on the cards when Fylde host Dover

Sutton captain can add to his goal-scoring tally

Fylde could be celebrating when they host Dover

Promotion candidates AFC Fylde were last season’s top scorers and could put Dover to the sword in an entertaining contest.

The Coasters remain unbeaten after four games and put in a convincing performance on Tuesday to end Solihull Moors’ 100 per cent start to the season.

Dover have conceded eight goals so far and were involved in a high-scoring affair mid-week, coming back from 3-1 down to beat Havant and Waterlooville 4-3. They now make the 300-mile journey north which could have a negative effect.

There has been just one clean sheet between these two teams so far, and with their attacking philosophies there is little chance of one cropping up here.

Ebbsfleet have been a much better side than their 15th position suggests and could turn their fortunes around when they face Barnet.

The Fleet were unfortunate to come away with nothing when they hosted Chesterfield and Sutton, missing a host of great chances, but if they can start converting their opportunities they could be a force to be reckoned with.

John Still's side are yet to win this season and while they are too good to be involved in a relegation scrap, they will find it tough to earn their first victory.

Ebbsfleet fans will be hoping their side can earn their second win of the season

Meanwhile Sutton travel north to take on Solihull Moors, and it could be worth having a punt on Jamie Collins to score considering the captain’s impressive record from the spot.

The Moors gave up 12 penalties last season, nine of which were converted, and have allowed this trend to slip over into this year’s campaign, having given up two already.

Collins has notched twice from the spot this season, and considering Solihull’s tendency to foul inside the box, don’t rule out the 33-year-old having an opportunity to add to his tally.
