Eastleigh 3-0 Maidstone United

Luke Coulson netted a double as Eastleigh crushed Maidstone at Ten Acres with a rousing performance.

The hosts started much the brighter and the Stones' defence had to be constantly alert to keep Mikael Mandron under control.

Eastleigh went in front when Coulson beat two defenders and drilled a low shot past Lee Worgan.

Ryan Bird then grabbed a second as the interval loomed.

In the second half, the Spitfires had Reda Johnson sent off for two bookings.

But Coulson grabbed his second to make the indiscretion somewhat incidental, the defender beating three men before finishing emphatically.
