Eastleigh through to Hampshire Senior Cup quarter-finals

Cavanagh Miley netted twice for Eastleigh

Richard Hill’s Spitfires had to fight back from behind to book their place in the Hampshire FA Senior Cup quarter-finals.

Despite fielding a strong side, the Spitfires were given a 26th-minute jolt when Eder Batista fired in off the post for Sydenhams Premier visitors Bournemouth Poppies.

However the difference in leagues soon came in to play when Cavaghn Miley struck in the 67th and 70th minutes, leaving Paul McCallum to complete the 3-1 fightback from Craig McAllister’s flick-on.

The Spitfires also had two ‘goals’ disallowed while fit-again Sam Wood hammered a free-kick onto the crossbar.
