Eastleigh came from behind to beat Torquay in their National League clash at Silverlake Stadium in front of 2,730 fans.
The Gulls took the lead in the 32nd minute through an angled drive from captain Armani Little.
Eastleigh were level in the 53rd minute, though, when Tom Whelan converted a penalty after he had been fouled in the box.
And the Spitfires secured all three points when Tyrone Barnett’s header found its way past goalkeeper Shaun McDonald following an error.
The Spitfires now take on Weymouth at home on 2nd January 2022.
