Match ends, Eastleigh 1, Leyton Orient 1.
Ben Strevens hopes of being considered as the next Eastleigh manager were made more plausible, after the Hampshire club forced a creditable 1-1 home draw with promotion-chasing Leyton Orient.
The caretaker's Spitfires side went in front in the first-half when the creative Mark Yeates curled a corner into the box, and Josh Hare buried his header in the back of the net.
Right-back Myles Judd was the architect of the Orient equaliser though midway through the second half, crossing for Macauley Bonne to register with a cool finish - the striker's 12th goal of a productive season.
Eastleigh were grateful that Bonne failed to give the away side the lead four minutes later as he headed James Dayton's cross just over.
