Eastleigh will take on Skrill Premier side Cambridge United tomorrow at the Silverlake Stadium (3pm kick off) as they look to reach the semi-final of the FA Ttophy.

The Spitfires big league match against league leaders Bromley got postponed on Tuesday and will now take place on the 8th April.

Tomorrow’s opponents currently sit in second in the Skril Premier having lost only three games all season in the league.

Their away form hasn’t been as impressive as their home form however as they have drawn nine games away this season and have only managed to win four away games all season.

Richard Money’s U’s last played Grimsby Town on Tuesday night where they were defeated at home in the league for the first time this season.

Jai Reason will be playing his former club tomorrow as the attacking midfielder is Eastleigh’s top goalscorer this season.

Information for the segregated match was put up on Eastleigh’s official website and said:

For Eastleigh supporters buying stand tickets Gate A is where you head for. For those collecting stand tickets it will be Gate 2.

The bar will technically outside the ground and will close at 14:30 hours at which time it will be cleared and everyone will have to enter the ground via a turnstile.

If you wish to purchase admission tickets prior to kick off you can but if you use the bar you will have to re enter the ground via a turnstile.

This is to enable us to allow Cambridge United fans to use the bar facility and then allow them admission to the segregated area.

There will be a 9am pitch inspection tomorrow morning due to recent weather conditions.

In other news, right back Damian Batt and winger Romone Rose have both been released by Eastleigh.

Former Oxford United defender Batt made 19 appearances in total as Rose made ten substitute appearances all season.

Tomorrow’s game will be part of Eastleigh’s history so come on down to the Silverlake Stadium and roar on those Spitfires!
