Eastleigh came from behind to beat Welling and continue their encouraging start to the Conference season.

Malachi Hudson gave the visitors a first-half lead, firing a left-footed shot into the bottom corner.

James Constable equalised when he reacted quickest after Jai Reason's free-kick hit the post to tap in his first Eastleigh goal.

The former Oxford striker's header then completed the turnaround and Will Evans' late strike confirmed victory.

The result lifted the Spitfires into the play-off places, with 10 points from their five games so far, while Welling are 22nd.
