Eastleigh beat Maidenhead 1-0

Tyrone Barnett helped Eastleigh return to winning ways with a narrow victory over Maidenhead at Silverlake Stadium.

The 36-year-old striker opened the scoring seven minutes before the break, following up after Tom Whelan’s effort had rebounded off a post.

Cavanagh Miley was denied a second by Maidenhead goalkeeper Rhys Lovett, who also foiled Whelan.

Vincent Harper blazed over the bar when clean through late on as Eastleigh extended their unbeaten home run to six games.

Maidenhead, now without a victory in five away trips, had their best moment early in the game, but Jay Mingi’s strike was saved by Joe McDonnell.

The Spitfires now take on Boreham Wood away in the FA Cup First Round on Saturday.
