Gime Toure’s stunning opener put Pools in the driving seat before Eastleigh started to push and apply the pressure as the game wore on.

A penalty gave the Spitfires a golden chance to equalise as Aaron Cunningham was penalised for a foul. The resulting spot kick was wonderfully saved by Ben Killip.

But soon after captain Danny Hollands headed in for a corner to ensure the spoils were shared and stretch Pools winless run to five.
