Captain Daryl McMahon hit the crossbar and came close to putting The Spitfires 0-1 up away to Dorchester on Tuesday


Ian Baird’s Spitfires saw back to back defeats away to Dorchester Town on Tuesday after a late goal in the 90th minute settled the two teams at The Avenue  Stadium.

The Spitfires had much of the possession in both half’s and came close with two headers from Craig McAllister, both saved by former Spitfire Jason Matthews.

However with a few good chances not going Eastleigh’s way, The Magpies won a free kick from thirty yards out conceded by second half substitute Adam Everett and Jamie Reid on loan from Exeter City drilled a free kick past keeper Jack Dovey with seconds to go on the clock.

This puts The Spitfires in 12th place, six points behind leaders Salisbury City and they travel to Billericay tomorrow at New Lodge where they would want to get back into winning ways.

The Blues have got off to a disappointing start in their Blue Square Bet South campaign after only claim five points from their first six games however they were involved in a six goal thriller on Tuesday at home to Tonbridge Angels.

The visitors got of to the better of starts with Mark Lovell opening the scoring after two minutes however it took just six minutes before The Blues were level with  Nathan Green scoring The Blue’s equaliser.

Further goals from Rob Swaine and Glenn Poole looked to be enough for Billericay to earn their second win of the season however Tonbridge had a different idea, with just five minutes to go Frannie Collin got one back for the visitors and Ben Judge secured a vital point for The Angels.

Tomorrow is going to be a great to game so come on down to New Lodge and roar on those Spitfires!
