EASTLEIGH are aiming to continue their encouraging start to the new season away to Yeovil Town tomorrow night.

Reda Johnson’s 13th-minute header gave the Spitfires a 1-0 win against Notts County at the Silverlake Stadium on Saturday.

Now Eastleigh are aiming to make it back-to-back wins against a Yeovil side that started its first season back in the National League, after relegation from League Two, with a 1-0 defeat at Barnet on Saturday.

Manager Ben Strevens said: “It’s going to be a really difficult game against another league club that I imagine will be there or thereabouts at the end of the season, like Notts County.

“I’ve been there a number of times and it’s never an easy place to go. It’s always nice to win at home and I imagine it will be a good atmosphere.”

Following the win against Notts County, Strevens said: “It was a tough game between two teams going right at it.

“We both played the same formation which made it not a great spectacle at times as we matched each other up.

"But we showed a bit of quality at the set play. Jack Payne has a great range of passing and produced a great delivery showed and Reda attacked the ball like we know he can.

“That was the difference, we’ve got boys who attack the ball in both boxes.”

Eastleigh goalkeeper Max Stryjek kept a clean sheet in his first game since his loan move from Sunderland was made permanent.

Joe Partington also made his second Eastleigh ‘debut’ while strikers Scott Rendell and Tyrone Barnett made their debuts.

“The goalkeeper was brillaint, he took charge of his area, especially at the end, but it was a real team effort to keep the clean sheet,” added Strevens, who was also encouraged by the atmosphere generated by a crowd of 2,668.

“The Notts County fans were first class, as good as we’ve seen here in the last couple of years and we’ve got a little section as well. Last year the atmosphere was getting back to where it used to be and I hope they saw promising signs on Saturday, a team really working for each other and players that gave their all.”

Eastleigh: Stryjek, Partington, Johnson, Wynter, Boyce, Green, Hollands, Miley, Payne, Barnett (Rendell 71), Williamson (McKnight 88).
