Eastleigh manager Richard Hill says the club cannot become complacent now they have begun to establish themselves in the Conference Premier.

The club sit 13th in the table with 20 points from 14 matches in their maiden Conference season.

Hill said the club had come a long way in a short time, thanks to the backing of chairman Stewart Donald, but that the aim must now be to kick on again.

"All that matters is this club has league status," Hill told BBC Solent.

"We all want to get promotion again but we are now an established mid-table Conference team."

"It does not matter who the manager of this football club is. It's what everyone is striving for and the seeds are being sown now."

Hill said he would have liked his side to have "three or four more points" at this stage of the season, but hailed the change at the club.

"We all want to get promotion again but we are now an established mid-table Conference team after 14 game and less than six months after promotion," he said.

"Sometimes people need to remember that.

"At times you have be one step ahead of the players, but with the winds of change you have to move fast and sometimes it's difficult.

"It's a good football club to be involved with... should we take a step back and be thankful? Yes. But you cannot be complacent."
