EASTLEIGH boss Andy Hessenthaler will field a mixed side in tomorrow's Hampshire FA Senior Cup quarter-final at home to AFC Bournemouth’s under-21s (7pm).

The Spitfires, on a roll of four straight Vanarama National League wins, have another big test ahead of them this Saturday away at AFC Fylde.

And although Hessenthaler is unlikely to risk any of his main men tomorrow, he said: “A few of the boys will be playing against Bournemouth to get some minutes under their belts.

“We’ll then travel up to Fylde on Friday and hopefully be the first side to beat them on their own patch for a while.”

A sprinkling of Eastleigh youngsters may also get a run-out against Carl Fletcher’s Cherries, including striker Ollie Dennett who has joined Gosport Borough’s fight for Evo-Stik South Premier survival.

Dennett had been dual-signed with Wessex outfit Brockenhurst, scoring five goals in 25 appearances for the New Forest side.

“Ollie’s gone to Gosport now. It’s a better standard for him and he needs game time,” Hessenthaler explained.

“He’ll get a game for us tonight and so will (defender) Harvey Read. It’s a good chance for players who need minutes in their legs.”

Blackfield & Langley and Winchester City have already secured their semi-final berths. The other quarter-final between Havant & Waterlooville and Hamble Club is at Westleigh Park tomorrow (7.45pm).
