Dave Challinor’s side extended their unbeaten away record to five games following a goalless draw away to Eastleigh.

In a game where chances were few and far between. The Coasters were in control for large parts but struggled to break down a resolute Eastleigh defence.

When asked about the performance Dave Challinor commented:

“We started the game brightly and had some good chances. Jim Kellermann had a great chance in the first half, if he puts it either side of the keeper it’s 1-0 but it goes straight down the middle. Joe Cardle also put some great balls into the six-yard box which should have been put away by our attackers. Ultimately, the game then fizzled out into a rather disappointing 0-0 draw.”

“We could have won the game, but did we do enough? No, I don’t think we did but that wasn’t through the want of trying. Like a few games this season we just needed that break in that final third.”

“We are actively looking at ways we can improve our attack. I don’t think there are huge things wrong, we have set high standards and we’re disappointed with the result. Despite this, we are still in a really good position in the league and more importantly, we’ve only lost 1 game in 10. If we can continue that form, we’ll be in a really good position come the end of the season.”

“Disappointing draws away from home ultimately become good points if you can follow that up with a home win and that will be the case this Saturday if we can get a good result against Aldershot.”
