If that happens Town will need to beat Halifax this weekend and hope that either Wrexham or Eastleigh don’t win.

But a draw or defeat for Eastleigh tonight would keep the Spireites’ fate in their own hands.

Gets a shot off from inside the area for Alty but it is a tame effort.

Alty’s Densmore curling free-kick from 25 yards goes just wide.

A first sub for the hosts as Mooney is replaced by Kosylo.

63 played, 0-1.

Have taken control of this one. Alty are being sloppy in possession and keeping giving the ball back to the Spitfires.

Goal for Eastleigh: 0-1

Barnett heads in at the far post from Green’s cross. 0-1.

Have started this half the better side so far. No big chances of note so far in this 45 though.

We’re back underway

A big 45 minutes coming up...

0-0.

Ooooft. Eastleigh’s House goes down in the box after possibly being clipped but the ref books him for diving. Heart in mouth moment.

Very scrappy this one. Neither side are putting many combinations together in the final third. 0-0.
