Tonbridge Angels 2 Eastleigh 1

18 February 2014

Tonbridge are out of the Skrill South relegation zone after a 2-1 win over title-chasing Eastleigh in a rearranged match on Monday night.

Tommy Warrilow's side went in front on nine minutes when Chris Piper and Tom Collins combined to set up Michael Bakare.

Hosts Angels doubled their lead on 35 minutes with Henry Muggeridge's cross finished by Mark Lovell.

Former Charlton striker Stuart Fleetwood replied for Eastleigh four minutes into the second half.

The visitors went on to dominate but a combination of Angels keeper Clark Masters, fine defending and poor finishing saw Tonbridge hold on for a win that moves them up to 19th place.
