THE CONTEXT

With Wealdstone's postponement against Dover Athletic confirmed on Friday afternoon, Eastleigh had a chance to move within two points of second placed Stones when they faced Hartlepool United in the late kick off being broadcast live on BT Sport. Unfortunately for the Spitfires, a torrential downpour at their Silverlake Stadium caused the game to be abandoned at half time with the scores at 0-0.

TEAM NEWS

Charlie Wakefield served the final game of his three-match suspension meaning he is now available. Connor Stevens has suffered a further injury setback which could leave him out of action for another six weeks, whilst Charlee Hughes remains out on loan at Concord Rangers.

WHAT WAS SAID?

Dean Brennan: “Eastleigh are a good team, very technical in midfield. They have Ben House up front together with Smith and they can both be a real handful together. They've got a good mix of experience and good young players, Ben Strevens has done a good job there."

WHO TO WATCH FOR

Ben House: The 21-year old striker joined the Spitfires in the summer following his release from Championship club Reading, where he made a solitary FA Cup appearance. He has hit the ground running in the National League and has scored six goals from eight games in all competitions this season.
