Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, the Premier League and EFL has been postponed until at least April 3rd. However, there are several National League games still scheduled to go ahead over the coming weeks. On Tuesday night, Ben Strevens’ Eastleigh entertain Andy Hessenthaler’s Dover Athletic at Ten Acres. Despite all the doom and gloom surrounding the world at present, this should be an entertaining National League affair.

Eastleigh Preview – Can the hosts seal a first win in three?

Eastleigh hover just four points above the drop zone at present. Things are tight in and around the bottom of the National League, as only six points separates Torquay United in 15th to 21st-placed Ebbsfleet United.

Last time out, Eastleigh crashed to a heavy 4-0 defeat to Notts County. That was the club’s third loss in six league and cup matches. The Spitfires have struggled for league wins of late, winning only twice in the National League since December.

Our betting prediction:
Dover to score first

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1740 GMT, Monday 16 March)

Despite their poor form, Eastleigh have been pretty solid on home soil over the past couple of months or so. Only Chesterfield have won at Ten Acres in league action lately. Can the Spitfires pick up a precious three points in midweek?

Dover Athletic Preview – Another away victory for the Whites?

Dover Athletic are currently in 12th place at present. Andy Hessenthaler’s troops have won 15, lost 14 and drawn nine of their 38 league matches. The Whites have taken just one point from their last three games, however.

Dover have been poor on the road lately, losing three of their last four. A 2-0 win at Stockport County on February 1st remains their only league victory away from home in 2020. However, only Boreham Wood have picked up more away points than Dover, who have taken an impressive 30 points from 18 away matches.

Eastleigh vs Dover Athletic Betting Advice

Dover have been far better on their travels than they have been at the Crabble Athletic Ground this term, but they did secure all three points when the teams met in Kent back in October. An Inih Effiong brace and an Oscar Gobern goal was enough for a 3-1 victory for Dover.

This is a tough one to call, but Dover will fancy their chances of picking up all three points in Hampshire in midweek. I’m tipping the away team to secure a 2-1 win, which you can get at the tempting price of 17/2.
