Eastleigh lose away to Maidenhead

Eastleigh lost 2-0 away to Maidenhead last night following a 4-0 loss at the week away to Harrogate Town.

Josh Kelly’s quickfire brace led Maidenhead to a 2-0 National League win over The Spitfires.

Eastleigh came close to going ahead after 10 minutes when Mark Yeates played in Mike Green down the left and he cut inside, but his shot came back off the post.

Kelly opened the scoring a minute before the interval with a piece of individual brilliance as he picked the ball up in space, dribbled past two Eastliegh defenders and rounded Graham Stack to fire home.

And just 45 seconds later he doubled the advantage – with a stroke of luck on this occasion, as his attempted cross was blocked and fell back to him and he then drilled the ball into the roof of the net.

Eastleigh almost pulled one back before the break but Ollie Dennett saw his shot on the turn cleared off the line.

The second half had few clear-cut opportunities and play was halted briefly in the 70th minute after a drone flew over the stadium. Eastleigh now take on AFC Fylde this Saturday at The Silverlake Stadium.
