MATCH PREVIEW: Macc Town v Eastleigh (Sat, 3pm)

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

WITH three wins, newly-pro­moted Eastleigh oc­cupy fourth place ahead of their visit to the Moss Rose.

THEY re­cov­ered from Satur­day’s slip-up at Dover to beat Welling 3-1 on Mon­day.

THE Spit­fires missed out in the Con­fer­ence South play-offs in 2013 but won the league ti­tle last sea­son by five points ahead of Sut­ton.

THEIR pro­mo­tion means they’re com­pet­ing in the Con­fer­ence for the first time.

MANY point to the last cou­ple of years’ in­vest­ment, re­port­edly a seven-fig­ure sum by chair­man Ste­wart Don­ald, as key to their re­cent suc­cess.

MAN­AGER Richard Hill has been able to bring in for­mer Wim­ble- don for­ward Jack Mid­son and Eng­land C in­ter­na­tional James Con­sta­ble.

THOSE two, and for­mer Da­gen­ham striker Ben Strevens, have two goals each.

SHOULD that strike force fal­ter, Hill also has for­mer Yeovil and Ox­ford for­ward Yemi Odubade to call upon.

CRAIG Stan­ley, who has plenty of league ex­pe­ri­ence has been added to the mid­field. He signed up this sum­mer, fol­low­ing his re­lease from Alder­shot.
