EASTLEIGH saw their 100 per cent start to the National League season come to an end after being held to a 1-1 draw at home by promoted Altrincham.

Home goalkeeper Joe McDonnell was forced into a fantastic early save to deny Matt Kosylo at Silverlake Stadium.

But the Spitfires stopper was beaten by midfielder Yusifu Ceesay’s close-range finish in the 10th minute.

McDonnell then kept out another Kosylo effort, while at the other end, Altrincham goalkeeper Tony Thompson foiled Sam Smart on the counter-attack.

Ben Strevens's side levelled on the stroke of half-time when Cavanagh Miley turned in a loose ball to make it 1-1.

McDonnell denied Kosylo in the second half and Altrincham’s Jake Moult cleared a Michael Green header off the line but neither side could muster a winner.

Eastleigh, who remain unbeaten in the division, host Aldershot in their next league encounter on Saturday.
