Eastleigh earn first draw of the season

September 9, 2018

Andy Hessenthaler Spitfires ended a run of three successive defeats by holding high-flying AFC Fylde to a goalless draw at The Silverlake Stadium.

The point extended Fylde’s unbeaten away record this season and they had the better of the few chances that were created in the first half.

Fylde forced Eastleigh keeper Graham Stack to make a smart save when Danny Philliskirk teed up Jim Kellerman on the edge of the area, while two Joe Cardle crosses just evaded Danny Rowe and Ashley Hemmings.

The hosts had perhaps the best chance after the break as Paul McCallam’s header across goal found Cavanagh Miley, but the unmarked midfielder fired well over from 15 yards.

Stack denied Fylde again three minutes later, making a smart save as Rowe fired an effort on goal from 25 yards.

There were few clear-cut chances created in the rest of the half as the points were shared.
