Charles gets cup chance

Elliott Charles gets FA Cup permission, news of a possible new signing, plus admission details for Bromley…

Ebbsfleet United will be bolstered ahead of the trip to Hayes Lane on Saturday by confirmation that on-loan striker Elliott Charles will be allowed to take part in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie, parent club Barnet having granted permission. With the release of James Lindie in midweek and Luis Cumbers’ return to Gillingham, it gives the Fleet an extra body up front.

Gavin Heeroo is suspended for one match following his dismissal at Barrow last week and Peter Holmes is cup tied having played for Harrogate Town in an earlier round.

Bromley have also been bolstered by news that their on-loan striker from Gillingham, Jacob Erskine, has been allowed to play on Saturday. Bromley boss Mark Goldberg told his local newspaper that, despite his side’s 3-1 victory over Woking last weekend, he expects the Fleet to be no pushovers: “We’ll be going into the game with confidence, although they are going to be a very difficult side to beat,” he said. “We’re still playing against a team that is in the league above us and we’ve got to recognise that it is going to be a very big test for us. But, we will go into the match believing we can win it.”
