Lynn maintained their unbeaten record against the Spitfires but the single point was not enough to prevent them being relegated. Lynn needed three points and for Aldershot to get none - but Shot's surprise win over Notts County meant that whatever the result at The Walks was immaterial.
Lynn looked on course for all three points in the first half and but for better finishing from Gold Omotayo, they could have put the result beyond doubt by half time.

On 17 minutes Michael Clunan found space on the wing setting up Aaron Jones who put a cross to the back post which Omotayo headed across goal and wide.
Three minutes later it was an Olly Scott low cross that Omotayo got on the end of but put his shot wide from six yards.
Eastleigh came more into the game winning a couple of corners before Omotayo tried his luck with a half volley on 32 minutes that went wide.
Lynn got the goal their played deserved on 40 minutes.
Once again Clunan was involved in the build up, he switched across to Jones whose first time cross was slammed home by Omotayo.
It might have been two before the break but Ross Barrow's header from a corner went just wide.

Eastleigh got an early chance after the restart with Paul Jones doing well to keep out a Brett Pitman overhead kick.
Eastleigh levelled the scores on 64 minutes when slack marking allowed substitute Tyrone Barnett to head home from a Harry Pritchard corner after 65 minutes.
Ten minutes later the visitors took the lead when Vincent Harper got behind the Lynn backline and finished across Jones.
With a minute of normal time remaining Barrows equalised for Lynn heading home from a free kick and then five minutes into added time a Josh Barrett cross set up Omotayo for a simple tap in.
It was not over, however, as Eastleigh responded with one final attack that saw Harper break into the box and brought down by Munashe Sundire.
After a long delay, substitute Michael Kelly beat Jones from the spot.

So Lynn relegated and left to contemplate what might have been had they had Cameron King been available this season and Kyle Callan-McFadden not limited to 14 league appearances.
Also would relegation have been avoided had the managerial change come earlier or would Ian Culverhouse had introduced new players to improve results as Tommy Widdrington did?
