Spitfires to fly into the top seven
Eastleigh have won six of their last seven league matches and the in form Spitfires can move into the play-off places with another victory at Altrincham this Tuesday evening.
Ben Strevens’ side have leapt into promotion contention thanks to some excellent performances since mid-April and their only blemish in that sequence was a 3-1 defeat away to second placed Torquay.
They had to work hard at the weekend to edge out Boreham Wood 1-0 at Ten Acres, but the result made it 18 points from a possible 21 and also brought up their fifth clean sheet in seven starts.
This midweek contest at J. Davidson Stadium represents Eastleigh’s game in hand, and a win will lift them up to sixth, allowing them to take control of their play-off destiny going into the final round of fixtures.
Eastleigh are a shade of odds-on to prevail and we think the Hampshire outfit are worth getting behind, with hosts Altrincham losing six of their last eight (W1, D1).
And with three of the visitors’ recent successes secured via a 0-1 score-line, we’re also forecasting the same outcome in Cheshire on Tuesday night.
