Eastleigh lose 4-2 away to AFC Fylde

Paul McCallum scored Eastleigh’s second but it wasn’t enough

AFC Fylde turned around an early two-goal deficit to beat Eastleigh 4-2 at Mill Farm in front of 1525 spectators.

A firm header past Jay Lynch by Alex Wynter – the defender’s second goal in three games – gave the visitors an early lead. Paul McCallum then rose to nod in Eastleigh’s second.

The Coasters responded quickly when Dan Bradley headed home from a corner to halve the deficit.

A penalty save by Lynch from McCallum before the break proved pivotal as Jordan Tunnicliffe headed in a Fylde equaliser early in the second half.

And Nick Haughton put Dave Challinor’s men in front with a crisp shot from outside the box, his first league goal for Fylde. Alex Reid added a fourth late on for the hosts.The Spitfires face another tough task on Tuesday as they take on second place Leyton Orient.
