Macclesfield Town 1-2 Eastleigh

James Constable scored twice as Eastleigh beat Macclesfield to move fourth in the National League.

Constable, who netted in the FA Cup second-round win against Stourbridge on Saturday, tucked away from Adam Drury's ball to give Eastleigh an early lead.

Eastleigh were ahead for only two minutes before Tony Diagne headed home a Paul Turnbull corner.

But Constable secured Eastleigh's fifth straight away win when he fired home from 12 yards.
