Eastleigh get back to winning ways away to Chesterfield

Joey Jones scored Eastleigh’s winner

Despite last Saturday’s blip, Ben Streven’s Spitfires have now won six out of their last seven games as they beat Chesterfield away in a 3-2 victory yesterday.

Joey Jones provided a stunning late winner as Eastleigh boosted their National League play-off hopes.

Jones let fly from distance with seven minutes remaining to move the Spitfires to within one point of the top seven.

Chesterfield went ahead in the 32nd minute when Haydn Hollis, on loan from Forest Green, bundled in his first goal for the club.

In form strier Paul McCallum levelled for Eastleigh a minute before the break, converting Chris Zebroski’s cross at the back post – his eighth goal in seven games and 22nd of the season.

Chesterfield regained the lead two minutes into the second half as Scott Boden met Ellis Chapman’s cross to claim his 15th goal of the campaign.

Andrew Boyce pulled Eastleigh level for a second time in the 59th minute before Jones’ wonder strike won it for the visitors. Eastleigh now take on relegation threatened Maidstone United, home at The Silverlake Stadium on Tuesday night as they look to extend their good form.
