Richard Hill’s Spitfires will look to get back to winning ways this evening as they take on in form Bristol Rovers at the Silverlake Stadium (7.45pm kick off).

The all-ticket match itself has already been confirmed that it will be a record attendance for Eastleigh with Rovers fans already  purchasing over a 1,000 away tickets.

Eastleigh will look to get back to winning ways as Hill’s men dropped to 13th in the league after a 3-0 defeat away to Welsh outfit Wrexham on Saturday.

Midfielder Elliot Durrell and Wes York netted for the hosts in the first half as former Bury striker Andy Bishop made sure Eastleigh came away with nothing after a long trip to Wales.

Darrell Clarke’s Bristol Rovers are currently in fine form having won their last five league games in a row as Clarke’s men managed to pull off a 1-0 away win against relegation threatened Southport.

Jake Gosling got the only goal of the game as former Spitfire Jamie White was named among the substitutes.

Former Rovers midfielder Craig Stanley will likely to feature against his old team having made over 30 appearances for the west country side in the 2011/2012 season.

Extra temporary terracing has been placed for the match tonight and the Stadium’s construction of a new 2,500 stand is well under way.

With only 200 tickets left for the game, Eastleigh fans are advised to purchase tickets at the club shop between 9am – 5pm or call the ticket office on (02380) 613 361.
