EASTLEIGH'S winless run extended to six matches after squandering a lead to draw at struggling Weymouth.

The Spitfires, who have not won since beating Yeovil on December 1, looked well set after Michael Green's 11th-minute volley.

However, the hosts battled back to earn a share of the spoils at Bob Lucas Stadium through Jordan Ngalo.

Weymouth made a fast start but were denied by a brilliant save from goalkeeper Joe McDonnell to thwart Cody Cooke.

The Terras continued their brisk pace as Calvin Brooks saw a cross caught by McDonnell, before Ben Strevens's side took the lead.

In the visitors’ first spell of pressure, former Basingstoke winger Sam Smart’s deep ball to the back post was volleyed home by left-back Green, with Weymouth keeper and Saints loanee Jack Bycroft unsighted by forward Tyrone Barnett.

Chances were at a premium during the remainder of the half, and when they did come McDonnell was alert to deny Josh McQuoid.

Eastleigh’s top scorer Ben House nodded wide from an offside position to end an unremarkable half.

Brennan Camp then made a stunning block, lunging in to stop House when the Scot was well placed in the box.

Moments later, Weymouth deservedly levelled as Brooks showed fast footwork to engineer space from which to offload a pass for Ngalo, the midfielder smashing home a low, deflected strike.

Eastleigh, seeking a winner, went close through a Barnett header and a deflected shot from Tom Blair.

Dan Smith and winger Ryan Hill were introduced with the former going agonisingly close, hammering a shot against the bar from 20 yards.

Eastleigh return to National League action at Stockport County tomorrow (7.45pm).

Spitfires: McDonnell, Smart (Blair, 71), Boyce, Wynter, Tomlinson, Green, Miley (Smith, 84), Payne, Hollands, Barnett (Hill, 84), House.
