Eastleigh 2-1 Guiseley

Eastleigh started their National League season with a comfortable 2-1 victory against Guiseley at Ten Acres.

Midfielder Andy Drury opened his account after 11 minutes when he finished well after good build-up play from Jai Reason and James Constable.

Jon Partington doubled Eastleigh's lead just before the break when he was left unmarked to nod home Jake Howells' free-kick.

Striker Michael Rankine halved the deficit with a header of his own for Guiseley in the 57th minute but the away side struggled to get the equalising goal.
