BOSS Ben Strevens admitted his delight as Eastleigh moved into the top five of the National League.

Cav Miley and Sam Smart were on target as Spitfires beat Wealdstone 2-0 at Silverlake Stadium.

Eastleigh have now won four of their opening seven league contests, losing just once in the process.

Strevens told BBC Radio Solent: “To have 14 points from seven games – I’d have snapped your hand off for that at the start of the season.”

Miley had Eastleigh’s best effort of the first quarter of the game but his shot curled just past the post.

Wealdstone forward Danny Parish had the ball in the back of the Eastleigh net with 22 minutes on the clock but his strike was ruled out for offside in the build-up.

Eastleigh broke the deadlock in the 68th minute as Miley pounced on a loose ball in the box to fire home.

And moments after Eastleigh had Michael Green sent off, Smart netted a second in stoppage time, to seal the spoils for the home side.

Strevens added: “They were second in the league with five wins on the bounce and you could see that in the first half – I thought they played some really good football.

“But as the game went on, the play got a little bit more stretched and that’s where we sort of came into our own in the second half.”
