Barnet 1-2 Eastleigh

Eastleigh picked up their first points of the season after claiming victory at Barnet.

The Spitfires were beaten by Solihull and Sutton in their opening two matches, but Michael Green's stunning first-half strike set them on their way to a morale-boosting win at The Hive.

Full-back Green found the top corner with a thunderbolt after the ball fell to him 25 yards out.

Visiting goalkeeper Graham Stack denied Shaquile Coulthirst one-on-one to keep Eastleigh ahead, and Paul McCallum's second-half strike ensured the points would be heading back to Hampshire.

McCallum got on the end of Josh Hare's floated free-kick at the far post to head past Mark Cousins.

Barnet pulled a goal back through Charlee Adams at the death, but it was too little too late as the Bees were left searching for their first win since dropping out of the Football League.
