Welling United 1-2 Eastleigh

Eastleigh sit two points off the Conference play-off places following their victory at struggling Welling.

Jai Reason headed the visitors in front in the opening stages from Joe Partington's cross.

After Jamie Turley nearly made it two when his header hit the bar, Welling levelled it up as Harry Osborne nodded in from a Ben Jefford corner.

Turley then won the game in the second half for Eastleigh when he smartly finished from the edge of the area.

The win moves Richard Hill's side up to sixth and they have a game in hand on fifth-placed Forest Green, while Welling are six points from safety in the relegation places.
