Due to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, Eastleigh manager Ben Strevens doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash.
We’re of the opinion that Altrincham will have to play well to breach the defence of this Eastleigh team who we think will end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Eastleigh at the end of the match.
Should be a close one.
