Hartlepool United 1-1 Eastleigh

Hartlepool extended their unbeaten league run to eight games but were held to a draw at home to struggling Eastleigh.

All looked good early on as Pools led midway through the first half when Niko Muir tapped in a low cross from the right.

Scott Loach, however, did more than his fair share to keep his side ahead, including a good stop from Cavanagh Miley.

The goalkeeper was powerless to prevent Paul McCallum's equaliser as the defender converted Mark Yeates's cross with a bullet header.

Visiting stopper Graham Stack secured a point for the Spitfires with good saves from Liam Noble and Paddy McLaughlin.
