Garry Hill insists Ebbsfleet have over-achieved despite not making the play-offs, Kent Online report.
Fleet had 23 points from 19 games when Hill replaced Daryl McMahon in November and they’ve since taken 44 from 26.
Defeat to Dover on Easter Monday means they can’t finish in the top seven but Hill is proud of what they’ve achieved.
He said: “When I came in, in November, we were four points off relegation.
“The football squad had a lot of quality players, and still has, so all that’s been reduced is the number of squad players and management staff.
“There were far too many so what we’ve had to do is trim things and try to manage it.
“We’ve worked, on and off the pitch, collectively and sensibly, to get to where we’ve got to.
“From under-achieving in November to be over-achieving in April, to go into the last week of the season being three points off the play-offs is all credit to the playing squad and everybody at the football club.”
