Eastleigh then doubled their lead in the 64th minute through Christian Maghoma.

The Terras pulled one back in the 79th minute as Brandon Goodship crossed into Josh McQuoid, who headed home.

Yet, Eastleigh would have the final say when Whitehall broke away to score a late winner.

The Spitfires now take on second place FC Halifax Town away on Saturday.
