FC Halifax Town 3-3 Eastleigh

Both goalkeepers were sent off in an extraordinary game at FC Halifax Town as Eastleigh were pegged back to a 3-3 draw.

The Spitfires were 2-0 up with just 21 minutes played as Sam Matthews' corner found the back of the net to open the scoring.

Chris Zebroski was on hand to double the lead from another corner that was flicked on by Andrew Boyce.

Scott McManus pulled one back for the hosts from the penalty spot just before half time.

After the break, Halifax were reduced to ten men when goalkeeper Sam Johnson was shown a second yellow card followed by a red.

Just past the hour mark, Simon Heslop scored his first goal for Eastleigh to put the Spitfires 1-3 ahead.

Tom Denton reduced the arrears for FC Halifax Town to bring them back into the game at 2-3 before Ross Flitney was then sent off for Richard Hill's side.

With no keeper on the bench, defender Boyce put on the gloves and made a superb save with his feet to keep the slender lead intact.

The drama wasn't over yet though as the hosts levelled the game with a late equaliser through Daniel Batty.
