Richard Hill’s Spitfires will look to get back to winning ways as they travel to newly promoted Manchester side Altrincham tomorrow (3pm kick off) at Moss Lane.

After winning at home to Southport 2-1 last weekend, Eastleigh travelled to Dartford on Tuesday and it looked to be back to back victories for Hill’s men going into the break.

Jamie Collins converted a penalty after James Constable went down in the box after 12 minutes and Constable himself then scored a rebound midway through the first half.

Eastleigh went in to the break with a two goal lead and it looked plain sailing for the Spitfires until Elliot Bradbrook got one back for the hosts with a well placed header from a corner.

And with just minutes left on the clock Harry Crawford earned Dartford a share of the points leaving Eastleigh seventh place in the Vanarama Conference.

Tomorrow’s opponents Lee Sinnott’s Altringham have got off to slow start this season having just picked seven points from eight games.

The Robins did manage to earn a late point away to Alfreton Town on Tuesday however as former Port Vale striker Kyle Perry netted in the 89th minute earn a share of the spoils.
