Ebbsfleet United’s Bradley Bubb says this weekend’s home fixture against FC Halifax Town will be another tough game for The Reds.

The striker was a key player for United last season, scoring 16 goals in 30 games as they were promoted from the National League South via the play-offs.

Speaking to Charlie Russell, Bubb spoke about how he is finding life at Stonebridge Road saying: “Yeah I’m really enjoying my time here at Ebbsfleet despite being injured.

“We have got a great bunch of lads down here as well as staff too.

“Last year was a great year for us getting promoted and we want to build on that this season.

Halifax and Ebbsfleet were the two sides promoted through the play-off system last season, with The Shaymen beating Chorley and United beating Chelmsford City.

Bubb discussed the step up this year: “It’s been tricky for us, we know as a team we have got one of the best squads in the league but our results haven’t been great.

“I don’t think it’s a big step up but there are better teams that will punish you for your mistakes, whereas last year you could get away with certain things!”

The striker will not feature in Saturday’s game due to being ruled out with an injury and has said that he has not set any goals for the season as of yet.

“I haven’t really thought about any targets since being injured as my main focus is mainly to get fit and to play again, then I can take it from there really.”

On the other hand, Bubb discussed the club’s goals and targets this season: “We would like to finish in a play-off place really and hopefully push for promotion again, like I said before we have got one of the best squads in the league so it’s only natural that we have got to have that mentality that we can get promoted again!”

Halifax currently sit fourth in the National League with 21 point whilst their opponents, Ebbsfleet are in 16th with 15 points

United’s striker finished by looking to Saturday’s fixture: “We are expecting it to be another tough game.

“They are a well organised team as most are in the league and there will be no doubt that they will have some good players who can produce something out of nothing, but we have got to be ready for that and at the same time play our game and not worry about them.

“It should be a good game.”
