The Spitfires are back at the Silverlake Stadium for the third consecutive game, as they take on Woking on Tuesday 24th October, with a kick-off time of 7:45pm.


The hosts are looking for a third straight win, having seen off Dover Athletic and York City in their last two outings.

A screamer from Chris Maguire opened the scoring for Eastleigh against the Minstermen before Paul McCallum doubled the lead on the hour mark.

York pulled one back a few minutes later through Callum Howe, but McCallum sealed the win, and his brace, in the 76th minute, as the Spitfires won 3-1.


The visitors had a hugely impressive season last year, finishing 4th in the National League, before losing to Bromley in the play-offs.

This season has been tougher for the Surrey side and they currently sit 13th in the table, having lost four of their last five league fixtures.

The Cardinals suffered late heartbreak at the weekend when they travelled to Dagenham & Redbridge in the National League.

Josh Rees put the Daggers ahead in the 25th minute before Reece Grego-Cox equalised for Woking three minutes later.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men when Tunji Akinola was sent off in the 66th minute.

Woking looked to have done enough to secure a hard-fought point before their former striker Inih Effiong popped up with a late winner deep into stoppage time for the hosts.
