Eastleigh drop first points
12:40am Monday 26th August 2013 in Sport
EASTLEIGH'S winning start to the Skrill Conference South season was halted 2-0 at Basingstoke Town.
The Spitfires gave Craig McAllister a starting berth with Yemi Odubade named on the substitutes' bench along with new signing Romone Rose.
Both teams had penalty appeals turned down before Basingstoke seized a 38th-minute lead through Jay Gasson.
"For long spells we were the better team," said disappointed Easteigh boss Richard Hill.
"If we'd taken our chances, you'd have said what a good performance it was."
