Wealdstone recovered from a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Sutton to frustrate promotion hopefuls Eastleigh with a 0-0 draw.

Sutton scored three times in the first half to heap misery on 10-man Wealdstone on Saturday and keep the pressure on National League leaders Torquay.

Isaac Olaofe, Ben Goodliffe and Louis John found the net before half-time and Tobi Sho-Silva added a late fourth to round off a third straight league win.

Millwall loanee Olaofe struck the opener in the 20th minute and 20 minutes later Wealdstone had Ashley Charles dismissed for a second booking.

Sutton took full advantage, with Goodliffe heading in his first goal of the season two minutes later before his fellow defender John scored for the second game running.

Danny Parish got Wealdstone on the scoresheet 10 minutes after the interval but Sho-Silva restored the three-goal cushion in the 82nd minute.

Things were much more positive on Tuesday evening however.

Tyrone Barnett was the first to threaten after two minutes as Eastleigh started strongly but his volley from a corner was just over the bar before Sam Smart dragged wide from Barnett’s knockdown.

Eastleigh keeper Joe McDonnell saved with his outstretched foot to deny Danny Green who shot from inside the area following a fine solo run and as half-time approached Connor Smith forced another save out of the keeper.

Smart and Dan Smith both had shots saved by Harry Istead as the Stones held on for a draw.
