Dover 2-0 Eastleigh

Goals from James Alabi and former Spitfire Connor Essam were enough for top of the table Dover to seal a 2-0 win over Eastleigh.

Richard Hill's reaction: "It was a frustrating day - we're up against it at the moment.
"The only players we've got at the moment are the players that are in that dressing room - and it doesn't help when a couple of decisions go against you. 
"At times I thought we played decent football - but we just couldn't open them up and get that opportunity."

Shaw signs for Eastleigh

Eastleigh have signed 22-year-old full-back Frazer Shaw.

Shaw joins the Spitfires after a spell with Dulwich Hamlet and began his career with Arsenal and Sunderland before making his Football League debut for Leyton Orient in 2015.

He played 30 games for Orient before moving on to Accrington and Woking, and then signing for Dulwich in August.

Eastleigh boss Richard Hill said “He’s come through the system at West Ham and you have to be respectful of that.
“He’s another one who should probably have done better and played higher than he has. Whether that’s because he hasn’t had the right break, I don’t know.

“But he was available and he’s not come here asking for shedloads of money or accommodation.

“The opportunity to play for Eastleigh means far more to him than the pound signs in his eyes and that’s refreshing. He’s young and he’s going to be hungry.

“He’s a nice lad and he’s trained with us all week and taken on board what we’re trying to do."

Eastleigh 2-2 Chester

Eastleigh had to make do with a point after surrendering a two-goal cushion at home against Chester.

The Spitfires scored early goals in each half through Ben Williamson and Gary McSheffrey, but visitors Chester fought back to draw level and earn a share of the points.

Richard Hill: "It feels like a defeat.

“It’s still a point on the board, but it should have been three.

“We went 2-0 up and then just sat a bit too deep. We didn’t get hold of the football and pass it to each other and you end up aimlessly kicking it up the pitch.

"That forces you into changes, getting bodies behind the ball, and you tend to invite a bit of pressure.

“I just felt we needed a spell where we got hold of the football, but we didn’t. We got forced deeper and deeper.”

Mark Yeates: “Speaking for all the boys, we’re gutted.

“For 60 minutes we moved the ball well and I thought it was as good as we’ve played at home all season.

“But how many times have we got ourselves in front and haven’t got maximum points?
