AFC Fylde step up National League survival fight with Eastleigh victory

AFC Fylde stepped up their National League survival fight as they held on for a much-needed 2-1 win over Eastleigh at the Silverlake Stadium.

Josh Kay and Nick Haughton scored either side of half-time to get the visitors off to a flying start in their bid to claim a third-straight win.

Scott Quigley had an effort disallowed for the hosts – who went into the game without a win in seven – before Ben Reeves reduced the deficit with a powerful drive after a through-ball was only half-cleared by Fylde goalkeeper Theo Richardson.

But Richardson preserved his side’s three priceless points at the start of added time when he tipped a Jake Taylor header over the crossbar as the Spitfires pushed for an equaliser.
