Kelvin Davis waved a magic wand and transformed Eastleigh's immediate fortunes in dramatic fashion with a second key National League win in five days.

Spitfires had slithered precariously close to the danger zone after nine winless league games, but prior to Tuesday's match with Oldham Athletic and since replacing Richard Hill as manager, Davis celebrated back-to-back successes.

After thrashing basement boys Oxford City 5-2 in midweek, Eastleigh beat high riding Bromley 2-0 through second half goals by Scott Quigley and Paul McCallum.

It was the first time Eastleigh had kept a clean sheet since mid-October when they beat Dover Athletic 1-0 in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round, writes Mike Vimpany.

Davis is proud of the players for their response to his appointment and that of ex-Saints teammate Danny Butterfield, his assistant.

Reflecting on the Bromley result, Davis said: “I think it was a strong performance. On the back of our win over Oxford City, to put in two performances of that level is fantastic.

“When you have got the strikers that we have got, you always fancy us to get a goal. Now it’s about making sure we are in the right areas defensively and that the lads have the right ideas to stop the ball coming into the box.

“The players have been absolutely top, every single one of them. I can’t praise them enough. The most pleasing part is that they want to learn. They want to listen. They want to get better.

"We have given them lots to think about and they have taken it all onboard. When you see that come to fruition on the pitch, the players take confidence from that.

“I’d like to think that we can keep going in our way and keep moving forward. Hopefully, we will keep putting in performances like that.

“The reception from the fans was nice. I’ve been here many times as a fan. It was great to be in the dugout and on the other end of it.”

Chances were at a premium during a scrappy and uninspiring first half at the Silverlake Stadium with the best opportunity falling to Jake Taylor, whose speculative effort was parried by Grant Smith, with McCallum unable to provide the final touch.

A fine save by Joe McDonnell denied Bromley's Corey Whitely, but the Spitfires took the lead midway through the second half when McCallum's flick-on from  a huge Joe McDonnell goal kock found Quigley who steadied himself before firing low past Grant Smith in the Bromley goal.

They doubled the lead 15 minutes later when Nigel Atangana's cross was headed home in trademark fashion by McCallum, his 30th of the season in all competitions.
