Eastleigh expect to have top scorer Paul McCallum back for Saturday's FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie against Dover Athletic at the Silverlake Stadium, 3pm.

The 10-goal striker, who notched a hat-trick in the 5-2 midweek defeat of Ebbsfleet United, was suspended for the 3-1 loss at Hartlepool United, a result which dropped the Spitfires into mid-table, with 20 points from 15 games.

With Dover second from bottom of Conference South and only one win to their credit so far, Eastleigh will fancy their chances of their name being in the hat for next Monday's first round draw, alongside League 1 and 2 clubs.

Renowned cup fighters Boreham Wood have knocked Eastleigh out in the past two seasons.
Eastleigh were undone by two second half goals in 11 minutes at Hartlepool, who led the National League prior to losing three times on the bounce.

Pool took an eighth minute lead through Tom Crawford, but the advantage only lasted until midway through the first half when Chris Maguire curled a 20-yard free kick into the top left corner.

It was Maguire's third goal in as many matches.  He had been linked with a move to Hartlepool while he was at Sunderland.

Mani Dieseruvwe got Pools' two second half winners, leaving Eastleigh manager Richard Hill to fume: "We conceded goals we shouldn't concede. They were better than us  during that crucial 15-20 minute spell."
