Quotes: Hill | Solihull Moors | Post-match

Quotes from Richard Hill after Eastleigh's 2-0 defeat away at Solihull Moors:

“The players have done brilliant in respect of keeping us in the league."

“Some of the performances have not been good enough, but I came back with one remit from the chairman and that was to keep this club in the Conference National."

“If my remit had been to play fast-flowing, brilliant football I’d have failed, but we’ve done enough to get the points we needed."

“The wins at Chester and Torquay were massive for us and you have to give the players credit for going to those places and winning."

“But there’s been no in between with us. When we lose, we lose abysmally.”

“We’ve got players whose contracts are up now and others who’ve got another two years and I’d like to stress that this is a situation I’ve inherited, not created."

“We managed our own survival last week but we’ve still got self-pride to play for – and today I didn’t see a lot of that personally."

“We’ve got lads running round now trying to gain a contract for next season and it’s not good enough in my opinion."

“But the main thing is that we’re staying up."

“I’m not one to blow my own trumpet, but who knows what could have happened if I hadn’t come back? I’ll let the supporters work that out for themselves.”

“[Jack Masterton is] a tidy, little footballer and I just wanted to have a look and see where we go with him."

“Jack's not had the opportunities he could perhaps have had here. Wrongly, in my opinion, there have been a couple of other young left-backs that have been elevated ahead of him.”

"Congratulations to Lincoln. They were the team that ground out the results and well done to them for that."

Eastleigh boss: "I inherited this situation, I didn't create it - but the main thing is we're staying up"

RICHARD Hill professed himself "thoroughly disappointed" as Eastleigh 's away campaign ended on a flat note at Solihull Moors. Much emphasis had been placed on taking pride in their performance having secured National League survival with a 2-1 Easter Monday triumph over Bromley.
