Eastleigh and Swindon draw in FA Cup

Press AssociationPress Association 4/11/2016

Eastleigh were forced to settle for a first-round replay after their FA Cup clash with Swindon ended in a 1-1 draw at the Silverlake Stadium.

Mikael Mandron headed non-league Eastleigh into the lead just after the hour mark from an excellent Jake Howells cross but the third-tier League One side were level within four minutes.

Michael Doughty was tripped by Spitfires keeper Ryan Clarke and the Swindon midfielder dusted himself down to slot home the resulting penalty on 68 minutes.

Robins forward Luke Norris had earlier seen a close-range header saved by Clarke, with replays suggesting the ball may have crossed the line, but Eastleigh also saw an Ayo Obileye effort cleared off the line in added time.

In the night's other clash, Mahlon Romeo scored the only goal as Millwall beat League One rivals Southend 1-0 at the Den.
