Highlights: Halifax Town 0-2 Eastleigh

Eastleigh beat sixth-tier Halifax in their FA Cup second round replay to set up a third round tie away at Brentford.

Scott Wilson grabbed their first goal as he finished off a neat ball across the six-yard box from James Constable.

Mikael Mandron then converted a penalty to double the lead for National League Eastleigh after Luke Coulson had been fouled by Josh MacDonald.

Halifax's hopes of a comeback were dashed when Scott Garner was sent off for elbowing Jai Reason late on.

Eastleigh travel to Championship side Brentford in the new year, one of manager Martin Allen's former clubs.
