Oxford City ran riot putting four past Ebbsfleet United in an important game toward the bottom of the table.

The Hoops picked up back-to-back wins for the first time in the National League with an impressive 4-0 win at Ebbsfleet United on Saturday (November 18).

Ebbsfleet United were reduced to 10 men after Billy Clifford was sent off in the 26th minute for the home side with the Hoops already 2-0 up.

It was a dream debut for both Cole Kpekawa and Alex McQueen who scored the first and last goals, while Zac McEachran added a second for the Hoops in the first half before Olly Sanderson made it three early in the second half.

The win saw the Hoops climb out of the relegation zone but city boss Ross Jenkins believes his side didn’t take full advantage of the extra man.

He said: “Three points are good, the four goals are good but I think we deserved seven goals. We missed some chances.

“I think for the boy's sake, they really worked hard today so to get a couple of extra goals would have been great for them

“We can’t argue with the result and the points. We have come here and put a fine display on and taken the points of them.

“We sort of put them to the sword after the [sending off]. The only downside we should have taken a few more chances and could have six or seven.

“I am not going to beat ourselves up with any negatives from today because everything is positive.

“The individual and collective performance was there.”

Ebbsfleet United were promoted alongside City after winning the National League South last season.

Jenkins said: “I thought last season they were really good, won the league quite comfortably and played some really good football.

"I thought today we were just different. I thought we covered ground better than them and we were on the front foot and we were aggressive.

"Every time we went forward it looked like we could score and our unit shape and togetherness were there."

Both Kpekawa and McQueen started their first games for the club the City Boss paying admiration to their experience.

He said: “They both came into the mix today and you wouldn’t have known they were new.

“They are senior boys but they have come in with open minds, they have taken everything on board and listened.

“You can see they have a bit of experience in this league which maybe is something we have lacked in previous games.

"We have got some bodies back as well now, but in terms of Cole and Alex it was a great game for them."
