EASTLEIGH's National League fixture against Southend United at the Silverlake Stadium will be rearranged due to it clashing with the club's upcoming FA Cup tie against Reading.

The Spitfires were drawn to face the League One side in the second round of the competition following their thumping 5-1 win against Boreham Wood in the first round.

Chris Maguire and Ludwig Francillette both scored twice to help seal Eastleigh's progression to the next round.

The club's best ever run in the FA Cup was to reach the third round in the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons.

The game against Reading will take place between Friday, December 1 and Monday, December 4 which is when Richard Hill's side were initially scheduled to face Southend United.

The Royals, who are managed by former Southampton boss Ruben Selles, also have Saints loanee Dom Ballard in their ranks.

New fixture details for the match against Southend will be announced in due course.
