Eastleigh 2-1 Nuneaton Town

Eastleigh took their unbeaten home run to nine games and moved into the top half of the table by beating Nuneaton.

The home side took the lead when Craig McAllister drove home a half-volley from Stuart Fleetwood's flick-on.

Eastleigh continued to dominate and Fleetwood had two chances before Jamie Collins finished from McAllister's back-heeled pass to make it two.

Nuneaton's Onome Sodje then struck the post before Lee Fowler pulled one back with a brilliant free-kick.
