Eastleigh win 3-1 away to Maidstone United

Paul McCallum scored twice for Eastleigh

Paul McCallum scored twice as Ben Strevens’ Spitfires continued their fine away form with victory at struggling Maidstone.

McCallum added to Joseph Jones’ first-half opener with two headers in the second period as Eastleigh made it five straight away wins in the National League.

The Spitfires looked like being frustrated in the opening period, with Elliott Romain having an acrobatic effort ruled out for offside, but they finally found a way through in stoppage time as Jones struck his first goal for the club.

McCallum added the second on the hour mark as he headed in from Mark Yeates’ corner and the duo combined in similar circumstances in the 85th minute to make it 3-0.

Michael Phillips pulled one back late on but Maidstone remain without a home league win since August.

Eastleigh take on Dover Athletic at home on Saturday in the Vanarama National League.
