Reaction: Moore and Mandron discuss Maidstone defeat

Reaction to the 2-1 defeat at Maidstone, quotes from Eastleigh boss Ronnie Moore: “One or two think they’re better than they are and that’s got to change.

“Everyone wants to beat us but we need to have the best team not just the best individual players.

“We seem to think it’s going to be easy against the so-called lesser teams.

“Too many think they can just turn up - they have to look in the mirror.

“That was disappointing again - the goals we give away - the first one was unbelievable.

“We get back in it and then give away a stupid pen. You can’t legislate for that. You do all the work with your back four in training and then we go and do that.

“How we missed that chance at the end when Beano (Constable) put the ball past the post...you have to take your chances when they come but it’s not going for us in front of goal.

“It’s back to the drawing board. We’ve got a lot to work on to get a play-off spot.

“Our better players are having a wobble, which happens, but they have to give more than that. It wasn’t good enough. How many teams from the top seven come here and get beat? Not many.”

Woking 2-1 Eastleigh

Eastleigh fell to their first defeat of the season at Woking.

The Spitfires went a goal behind on the stroke of half time against the run of play as Inih Effiong fired past Ross Flitney.

Ben Williamson hit the post and Chris Zebroski had a good chance to score when one-on-one. Defender Callum Howe also came close on his debut with a header that went just over.

After the break, the hosts doubled their advantage in the 53rd minute when Eastleigh's Gavin Hoyte turned the ball into his own net when trying to deal with a dangerous delivery from goalscorer Effiong.

Richard Hill's side were then awarded two penalties in quick succession in a frantic spell of action.

Williamson missed the first and then moments later Ross Stearn was brought down in the box. Ayo Obileye stepped up to score this time and pull a goal back for Eastleigh.

Eastleigh finished the game with ten men as Hoyte pulled up with an injury with all three substitutions having already been made.
