Tomorrow sees Eastleigh play their last away game of the season

Fresh from being crowned Skrill South champions, Richard Hill’s Spitfires now go on the road for the last time this season as they take on Hampshire rivals Havant & Waterlooville (3pm kick off).


Nicknamed the Hawks, Lee Bradbury’s men will be looking to regain their play-off spot in the aim of joining Eastleigh in the conference national next season.


It’s been a solid season for the south coast side as they sit just one place behind Dover Athletic on goal difference in sixth place with an important game in hand over the Kent side.

The Hawks are unbeaten in five games and recently claimed a point away to mid-table side Weston-super-Mare.

French midfielder Nigel Atangana scored Havant’s only goal of the game as Bradbury’s men drew 1-1 on Good Friday.

The Westleigh Park side have won five out of their last six home games in the league and will prove tough opposition for Hill’s men.

Eastleigh however are unbeaten in 12 league games and are almost certain not to go easy on their Hampshire rivals.

The hosts have not beat the Spitfires in seven league encounters between the two sides and both sides played back in August in a 0-0 stalemate at the Silverlake Stadium.

Havant’s side includes the likes of former QPR and Swansea City player Scott Donnelly and striker Dennis Oli who has had over 100 appearances for Gillingham.

The game is going to be great game for all Eastleigh fans and everyone involved within the club on this Easter Monday fixture at Westleigh Park.
Admission prices for the match are:
£13    Adults
£8    Senior Citizens / Students (with NUS card) / Children 11-16
