Eastleigh 4-1 FC Halifax Town

Eastleigh came from behind to inflict a heavy defeat on FC Halifax Town.

The visitors led early on after Danny Hattersley was fouled in the box and he coolly converted the resulting penalty.

Jai Reason equalised six minutes later with a superb 25-yard free-kick, before Michael Green put the hosts ahead from Ben Strevens' cross after the break.

Stuart Fleetwood later made it three with a deflected effort, before crossing for Strevens to head home in the last minute for Eastleigh's fourth.
