Spitfires poor away form continues

Weston-super-Mare Vs Eastleigh tonight

Weston-super-Mare Vs Eastleigh tonight

Richard Hill’s Spitfires look to finally win away tonight to seventh place Weston-super-Mare at The Woodspring Stadium (7.45pm kick off).

Saturday’s game away to Sutton United didn’t go according to plan for Hill’s men; it took 43 minutes before either team got on the score sheet.

Unfortunately for Eastleigh it was the hosts that took the advantage.

Former Brighton & Hove Albion player Sam Rents stepped up from the penalty spot and gave Sutton a one goal advantage going in to the second half.

With Eastleigh looking for an equaliser late on, striker Craig Dundas made sure of the three points with just seven minutes remaining.

There was just enough time for Damian Scannell to score a consolation goal with seconds to go after Jamie Stuart got sent off for Sutton however it was too late and Eastleigh lost yet another away game.

The Spitfires now play Weston-super-Mare in a bid to win their first away game since August.

The Seagulls last played at home to Maidenhead United where they only manged to claim a share of the points.

Dayle Grubb opened the scoring for Weston-super-Mare in the first half however Alex Wall’s second half equaliser made sure the hosts didn’t claim all three points.

The last time these two teams played was at The Silverlake Stadium and it was Eastleigh’s first win of this current season.

Moses Ademola (now at Dover Athletic) scored a brace and Craig Mcallister made sure of the three points on that occasion with a well taken goal.

The last time these two teams played at The Woodspring Stadium was a disappointing 0-0 draw.

Tonight’s game is going to be great game, so come on down to The Woodspring Stadium and roar on those Spitfires to an away victory!
