EASTLEIGH first team coach Jason Bristow admitted that he was "really pleased" with the 3-1 win over York City but maintained there are still areas to improve going forward.

Chris Maguire scored a stunning first half goal before Paul McCallum added a double after half time which helped the Spitfires move up to ninth in the National League table.

The win means that Richard Hill's side have won their last four home matches at the Silverlake Stadium as they go from strength to strength ahead of a busy period.

Bristow was happy with the first half display in particular but accepted that they were not quite able to reach the same level after the break.

Speaking to the Daily Echo after the game, he said: "It is a good win. It was a really good first half performance. I thought that was as well as we have played in the first half.

"We looked hard to break down, good in possession and we created some chances. In the second half, we did not quite create those heights.

"We conceded a couple of opportunities that they will be disappointed that they did not score from. We finished the game quite strongly and it was a good three points.

"There are still a few things that we want to work on, and we want to improve on so we are not getting carried away with ourselves."

In-form forward Maguire opened the scoring with a wonderful curling finish to set Eastleigh on their way to the three points.

"We know what he possesses, he has fantastic quality," Bristow added, in reference to the Scot's goal. "Before he came to the club, we knew what he could bring, and he can bring those sorts of moments.

"It was a great cross-field pass from (Scott) Quigley, a good first touch from Chris, the defender has dropped off and he has bent it into the top corner. It was a fantastic goal and it set us on the road to a good three points."

Midfielder Jayden Harris, who signed on loan from Carlisle United earlier in the week, made his Eastleigh debut and impressed on his first showing in front of his new fans.

Bristow acknowledged that the 24 year old's all-around performance was something that he could be proud of.

"He has looked good in training, and he has settled in really well. I think it was a good debut from him.

"He showed what he can do with and without the ball which is great and adds to the quality that we have in that area of the pitch already.

"He can be pleased with his performance, and we are pleased that he has had that performance with us today."
