Hawks beat Champions Eastleigh to go within two points of confirming a playoff place

Mon Apr 21, 2014 : 19:53

932 watched as the Hawks beat League Champions Eastleigh 1-0 in today’s Bank Holiday derby at Westleigh Park, putting the side in the driving seat for the play-offs in the process.

Nic Ciardini’s tenth minute goal proved enough to divide the sides, scored direct from a free kick after Sahr Kabba was fouled just outside the box.

Defeats for Concord and Ebbsfleet this afternoon, and a draw for Dover, mean the Hawks now need just two points from their last two games this season to secure a playoff place.

The Hawks’ penultimate game, and last home match of the season, is on Wednesday night against relegation threatened Maidenhead United, who this afternoon recorded an eye opening win against Ebbsfleet United to boost their bid for survival. The Hawks then finish the season next Saturday away at Tonbridge Angels, who were emphatically relegated in a 7-1 hammering by Chelmsford City today.
