In other Eastleigh news, BBC Radio Solent are reporting that the Spitfires have had a bid accepted for a player from one division below the Vanarama National League although they are facing competition from teams higher up the pyramid including one side from the Premier League.

MANAGER Ronnie Moore has played down reports linking Eastleigh's hot property Luke Coulson with interest from two SkyBet Championship clubs. Word from the West Midlands suggests the highly-rated midfielder/wideman is on the radar of both Birmingham City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
