Former Eastleigh centre back Aaron Martin returned to the Silverlake Stadium this evening as captain of the Southampton XI. Martin Hunter's under 21's squad was supplemented by players with first team experience including Billy Sharp, Steve De Ridder, Lee Barnard, Jonathan Forte and match winner Tadanari Lee who came off the bench to score a second half penalty.

Eastleigh put in a good display and had chances to score with Stuart Fleetwood, Ben Strevens and captain Glen Southam all going close for the Spitfires.

5. A corner from Southam finds Chris Dillon at the back post. His header is comfortably caught by Will Britt.

10. Fleetwood low cross into the box found Strevens who looked to be caught by a trailing leg from Bevis Mugabi. No penalty given.

11. Strevens dangerous low ball into the six-yard box cleared off the line by young full-back Fraser Colmer.

Billy Sharp picked out a pass for Steve De Ridder who cut inside from the left and beat Dan Spence to send a shot wide of the post from 20-yards.

20. Fleetwood set up Will Evans for a shot whose effort was charged down well by Dominic Gape inside the area.

Chance for Fleetwood as he fires a shot high over the bar after Southam hooked the ball into his path. Still 0-0

Billy Sharp finds the net with a low shot but the strike is ruled out for offside.

Saints substitution: Jason McCarthy on for Aaron Martin who was forced to withdraw prematurely with an injury.

Set piece from Eastleigh played deep to Southam who hits a shot into the ground. Strevens attempted a bicycle kick and came close.

Will Evans free kick spilt by Britt but the rebound off the keeper didn’t fall kindly for Eastleigh.

Britt denies Strevens with a good save after Southam’s clipped pass in behind split the Saints defence.

Billy Sharp heads wide of the mark for the Saints.

A fairly low-key opening 45 at the Silverlake, shame to see Aaron Martin forced off against his former club. Goalless at the break.

HALF TIME: Eastleigh 0-0 Southampton XI

Eastleigh substitution at the start of the second half: Craig McAllister on for Chris Dillon.

Three subs made by Saints at the interval: Reed, Lee and Targett, on for Curtis, Barnard and Mugabi. Second 45 underway.

Great chance for Eastleigh early in the second half as Fleetwood played in Southam whose shot rolled agonisingly wide of the post.

56. Cross from the left by Michael Green well cut out by McCarthy.

57. Green cross had just too much on it for Jai Reason to connect with a header in the centre.

59. Eastleigh substitution: Yemi Odubade on for Stuart Fleetwood

62. Saints substitutions: Omar Rowe, Corby Moore and Jake Sinclair on for De Ridder, Sharp and Forte.

71. Omar Rowe attempteda fierce drive across goal from the left hand side that flashed just wide of the post.

75. Eastleigh substitutions: Sam Wilson and Jack Dovey on for Jamie Collins and Ross Flitney.

Tadanari Lee stings the gloves of Jack Dovey with left foot shot.

PENALTY awarded to Saints as Evans tripped Harrison Reed in the area.
Tadanari Lee’s penalty was scored in the 78th minute, Eastleigh 0-1 Southampton XI

Good ball across the face of goal from Jai Reason but no one was there to attack the ball at the far post.

86. Eastleigh substitutions: Fuller and Doyle on for Green and Spence.

88. Dominic Gape effort well saved by Dovey.

FULL TIME: Eastleigh 0-1 Southampton XI
