Ebbsfleet United came from a goal down to beat Stockport County 2-1 and extend their unbeaten run to six matches in the Blue Square Bet Premier.
Nick Chadwick opened the scoring for the Hatters from the penalty spot, but second half strikes from Calum Willock and Nathaniel Pinney saw the home side grab all three points.
The result sees Liam Daish's side move up to 14th on the table with 25 points from 20 games, while County, under the caretaker charge of Willie McStay, remain in 17 with 19 points from 20 matches - with it being the only Blue Square Bet Premier on the weekend due to FA Cup action.
Ebbsfleet started strongly with Ram Marwa wasting an early chance as he scuffed his shot wide from a Michael West cross.
County looked threatening in attack, however, and they may have done better with long throws from Euan Holden, but the imposing Yado Mambo was quick to clear the danger on two occasions.
It was the visitors who opened the scoring with a well taken penalty after 21 minutes following Tom Phipp's foul on Tom Elliott.
Stockport came close to doubling their lead as Jon Routledge hit a post while Chadwick's follow-up was blocked.
The home side came out after the break a more determined side having been lucky to have just conceded one goal in the first half.
Pinney failed to get his shot on target after being set through on goal before seeing a penalty appeal turned away following his tumble in the box.
But with Daish's side enjoying far more of the possession, it seemed only a matter of time before they found the target.
It took a superb run down the wing from Joe Howe to open up the County defence and after reaching the byline, he found Willock with a fine cross leaving him with needing just a touch to see the ball over the line.
Buoyed by their equaliser, United found another gear with Pinney especially impressive. He picked up the ball on the right before cutting inside and firing a bullet past 'keeper Mark Halstead for what turned out to be the winner.
