By Wendy GEE - (Daily Echo)

IAN Baird's Eastleigh must travel to Blue Square Premier outfit Crawley Town in the FA Trophy second round on January 12.

While the Spitfires were squeezing past Bognor Regis 1-0 on Saturday to reach the last 32 for the first time in their history, Crawley booked their passage through with a single-goal victory over Bromley.

The Sussex side are currently 16th in the Conference national having had six points deducted for financial irregularities.


Crawley manager Steve Evans was pleased with another home draw and paid respect to Eastleigh.

Evans said: “I have had the opportunity of watching Eastleigh this season when I went to watch an opposition player against them and I thought they were an excellent outfit.

“They have a number of high profile players amongst their squad and they will come here with real high hopes of getting a result. But we are at home and it is a great chance for us to get through to the next round."
