Eastleigh will be looking to bounce back to winning ways against Maidenhead at York Road after falling to a 1-0 defeat last time out against Woking. 

Dennon Lewis struck on the stroke of half-time in an encounter that could have gone either way as both teams had chances to claim all the points.  

Richard Hill’s team will still be full of confidence after turning their poor start of the season around with the Spitfires battling it out to be in the National League play-off spots. 

To make matters worse, for the Hampshire side’s defeat on Tuesday night, is that talisman Paul McCallum was substituted due to an injury.

Hill expressed he doesn’t know the content of the injury that the Spitfires’ top goal scorer endured during the clash against Woking. 

McCallum has scored 12 goals in 13 outings and has been a vital part of the Eastleigh cog that has charged them up the table.

With Eastleigh’s danger man a doubt, this will give bottom of the table, Maidenhead United, a real boast as they are seeking their first league win in 13 games. 

There hasn’t been much to shout about at York Road so far this campaign but their progression into the first round of the FA Cup could help boost morale. 

They put Weston-Super-Mare to the sword in a comfortable 3-0 win and will battle it out against Oxford United next month in the first round.

The semi-professional club will be encouraged as they beat the Spitfires in this fixture last year, in Berkshire, in a 2-1 victory for the Magpies.
