Eastleigh earn point away in season opener

August 7, 2017

Reda Johnson nearly opened the scoring

Richard Hill’s Eastleigh fought out a goalless opening day draw away to Bromley on Saturday in the Vanarama National League at Hayes Lane.

The Spitfires edged a tight and disciplined first half with the best chance coming midway through the period when Eastleigh centre-back Reda Johnson came forward for a corner and headed against the bar.

While Bromley took 40 minutes to register their first shot, Richard Hill’s men pressed hard and Sam Wood hit just over.

Bromley were brighter in the second period. Ben Wynter found Louis Dennis, whose header bounced agonisingly over.

The host’s substitute Iffy Allen also hit just too high, but there was to be no breakthrough.

It remained goalless throughout as Eastleigh claimed their first point of the season. Hill’s men take on Sutton United tomorrow evening at The Silverlake Stadium.
