FORWARD Scott Quigley was delighted with Eastleigh's late 2-1 win over sixth-place Altrincham on Saturday.

Quigley put the Spitfires ahead in the first half before providing the assist for Paul McCallum's 86th-minute winner.

Speaking to Eatleigh's media team after the game the 31 year old said: “It was a good win.

"They are a very good outfit. They are in the top three footballing teams in the league, they gave us a proper run for our money.

“Their gaffer has got them playing proper football and we have got to respect that.

“But we looked at it with Hilly to work out how we could affect them and get at them on the break.

“That pretty much sums the game up. We had to be patient and it’s turned out good, we got the three points.”

Eastleigh's game plan saw their forwards have a limited number of touches, which Quigley noted can become frustrating.

“It’s about having patience. I can get frustrated, Macca gets frustrated as well, but he’s just walked away with the winning goal which contradicts everything I suppose.

“Hilly always tells us about Jamie Vardy, in one of the games when they won the league he had about nine touches as a centre-forward.

“But he scored in that game. You have to be patient and hopefully take the chances when they come.

“They are probably a bit unlucky, they missed a couple of one-on-ones, but we had enough chances as well.

“I’m very happy with the three points and we look ahead to Tuesday (against Boreham Wood) now."
