Luke Coulson is determined to make the No.10 position at Ebbsfleet his own.

The 23-year-old looks at home playing behind centre-forward Danny Kedwell after being moved inside from the wing.

With striker Darren McQueen set to miss most of the season with a knee injury, Fleet boss Daryl McMahon has tried several different attacking options and using Coulson in the hole looks as good a plan as any.

He set up one goal against Leyton Orient on Saturday night and always carried a threat on the counter-attack as Fleet put on a fine team performance to win 2-1.

Coulson said: “I feel like I’m going from step to step with that position, playing behind Kedwell.

“I joked with him before the game that I was bigging him up in my last interview and I think we work really well together.

“I feel like I can go wherever the game needs and I can do a lot of different aspects of the game, which I feel I can do. The gaffer’s released me a little bit and hopefully I can cement that position going forward and people will see me as a No.10 for the club.

“We’ve been working heavily on our shape and breaking from that shape. With the pace of Weston and Cook down the sides, we’re always going to cause problems and with Kedwell in the box, everyone knows what he can do.”
