A seventh win in nine matches was enough for Eastleigh to see off Conference strugglers Dartford.

Dartford's Peter Sweeney was superbly denied by goalkeeper Ross Flitney one-on-one, while James Constable hit a post for the hosts.

Jack Midson's powerful header from a Jai Reason corner put Eastleigh ahead on the stroke of half-time.

And Michael Green wrapped the game up when his low corner evaded everyone in the box and went into the far corner.
