Final Spireites sub - 72 minutes

Cooper off, Quigley on.

A good first start from Cooper, he can be pleased.

From Carter’s deflected shot from distance, corner for the hosts.

Spireites second sub - 69 minutes

Asante off, Uchegbulam on. Asante has been quiet today. Not done enough.

For stopping an Eastleigh counter. Tactical foul, shall we say.

Grimes denied by a top save

Mandeville and Cooper play a short corner, the latter delivers the ball into the near post, Grimes meets it with a diving header but McDonnell is equal to it with a brilliant reaction save.

Cook injured - subbed off - 62 minutes

The debutant was down for a couple of minutes and he has go to off and is replaced by Williams. Such a shame for Cook because he had been playing well.

For making a foul deep in his own half after giving away possession. He’s been poor today.
