Team News: AFC Fylde
The AFC Fylde boss Adam Murray will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this clash thanks to a fully injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Eastleigh
Owing to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, the Eastleigh boss Richard Hill does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match.
We feel that AFC Fylde will, in all likelihood, have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
In contrast, Eastleigh might well find it a difficult task to score a goal of their own although we do think it’s probable that they will be hitting back at some stage here.
We’re therefore anticipating a decent 3-1 margin for AFC Fylde at the end of this one.
