EASTLEIGH are now without a win in nine league games after drawing 1-1 with Southend United at the Silverlake last night.

An eighth minute opener from Harry Pritchard gave Spitfires the lead, only for it to be eventually negated by Noor Husin’s sublime strike in the second-half.

New signing Brennan Camp, on loan from AFC Bournemouth until the end of the season, was inserted straight into the starting line-up.

Vincent Harper made way, with Camp slotting in at right-back.

The only other change to the side that lost 2-0 away at Notts County last weekend saw Brett Pitman drop to the bench, as Daniel Whitehall was given a starting berth.

Camp made a near instant impact in an Eastleigh shirt, as after eight minutes of action, he burst down the right-hand flank before sending a low cross towards Pritchard, who duly turned the ball home.

The game then fizzled out into a non-affair, with both sides’ best efforts coming from outside the box.

After the break, Southend came out of the break looking brighter, eventually finding an equaliser shortly after the hour mark.

Afghan international Husin gained possession of the ball from around 25-yards out, before blasting the ball home into the bottom corner.

Once again, the game quietened down after the goal.

Southend slightly edged the remaining half-hour with chances created, with Camp coming up with another key intervention.

The Cherries defender’s brave block denied former Leeds United youngster Sam Dalby a clear path on goal, ensuring that the spoils would be shared.

Both teams remain in mid-table, with Eastleigh 14th, two places behind Southend in 12th.

So far this campaign the Spitfires have garnered 34 points from 29 matches.
