Match Preview: Eastleigh (A)

14 May 2021

The Bees will be hoping to return to winning ways as they make the trip to Hampshire to take on play-off contenders Eastleigh at the Silverlake Stadium. Preview in association LVBet.

FIXTURE DETAILS:

Eastleigh FC vs Barnet FC 

Saturday 15th May, 2021, 15:00 KO

Silverlake Stadium 

Vanarama National League

THE SPITFIRES: 

League Position: 10th (P37, W15, D11, L11)

Last Fixture: Torquay United 3-1 Eastleigh (Saturday, May 1st)

Manager: Ben Strevens

Top Scorer: Tyrone Barnett (10 league goals)

Ben Strevens side come into the clash with the Bees knowing it is a must-win match on home soil. As the season enters it's climax Eastleigh must secure all but maximum points to ensure that they finish the season in the top seven and in those National League play-off places. The Spitfires may have lost to automatic promotion hopefuls Torquay last time out but they are very strong on their home ground, beating fellow promotion contenders Notts County and Sutton United in their previous two matches. Strevens side of course dismantled the Bees on the opening day at The Hive London as four second-half goals saw the Spitfires run away 5-1 winners on a bleak afternoon in North London. Since then they have been in contention for the vast majority of the campaign and now enter this do or die stage of the season which will make or break their ambitions for the season. 

One to Watch: Ben House 

Ben House has been a standout performer for Ben Strevens side so far this term, notching nine goals in The National League in an impressive campaign. The striker signed for the Hampshire side ahead of the campaign and has played a pivotal role in the Spitfires side. House previously spent time with Dagenham and Redbridge, as well as Championship side Reading. He'll be hoping he makes it into double figures for the season when the Bees arrive at the Silverlake Stadium.

THE BEES

After an impressive display in their last away game, the Bees will be hoping to put another solid shift on the road against the Spitfires. The Bees were swept aside in their previous match as a rampant Notts County side took control in the second half after an even opening 45 at The Hive London. In terms of quality of opposition, the trip to Eastleigh provides Simon Bassey's men with another tough task against promotion hoping opposition, the Bees will have to dig deep and be resilient against an Eastleigh side who have plenty to play for. Since Bassey's arrival as First Team Coach the Bees have won two of their four away games, losing just the one at the hands of league leaders Sutton United, Bassey clearly has his side well drilled away from The Hive London and he'll be hoping for similar character at the Silverlake Stadium.

Match Reports

Match Pack: Eastleigh 3-0 Barnet FC

15 May 2021

Despite having some golden chances throughout the match, the Bees fell to a three goal defeat at the hands of Eastleigh.

After a bright start from the hosts, they took the lead on nine minutes as Tyrone Barnett rose highest to a cross into the box to head home past the jumping Adam Parkes who had come to try to claim. 

The Bees responded well and almost levelled when Ephron Mason-Clark's effort from range took a wicked defelction which sent the ball inches past the post. 

Simon Bassey's men continued to look for an equaliser and had a succession of set-pieces midway through the half but they couldn't quite unlock the Spitfires backline. 

Adam Parkes was soon called into action as Joe Tomlinson sent a powerful drive goalwards but the Watford loanee did well to parry an effort behind for a corner kick. 

With four minutes to go before the break the Bees had a couple of golden chances to level, as Tomi Adeloye pounced on a loose ball only for his curling shot to be headed from the line. The Bees then turned the ball back across goal for Alex McQueen who was smothered by some Spitfires defenders which halted him from slotting home from six yards out. 

All in all after the early setback, the Bees gradually grew into the game and it was the hosts who looked more relieved to hear the half time whistle at the Silverlake Stadium.

Bassey's men almost had the perfect start to the second half, as Mason-Clark picked up a loose ball and stung the palms of Joe McDonnell who parried it as far as Harry Taylor who looked destined to score only for his shot be heroically blocked on the line.

The Bees continued to dominate proceedings and Adeloye had two chances in quick succession as the striker first saw a long-range effort saved, before finding space in the area before firing wide.

The pressure continued and the Bees must have been cursing their luck as Alex McQueen guided a looping header inches over the crossbar with the Spitfires 'keeper stranded. Moments later Mason-Clark caused the hosts more problems as he skipped into the area, before his powerful cutback was almost turned in for an own goal.

Then despite all the pressure, it would be the hosts who would double their lead, as Adam Marriott was brought down by Parkes, before Tomlinson converted from the spot to score.

A third was added with eight minutes left on the clock, as substitute Sam Smart struck from the corner of the box and into the far corner beyond the dive of Parkes. 

Ultimately, Simon Bassey was left ruing not equalising at the start of the half where his side had dominated proceedings, he'll hope the Bees can be more clinical when we visit Solihull Moors on Tuesday night. 

BARNET: Parkes, Vaughan, Nugent, Richards-Everton, Beard, Mason-Clark, Taylor, Skeffington, McQueen (Petrasso 74'), Kefalas, Adeloye. 

Not Used: Callan, McBurnie, Vasiliou.
