James Constable scores twice as Eastleigh secure a 2-1 victory at Macclesfield Town.

A brace from James Constable has fired Eastleigh to a 2-1 win at Macclesfield Town and propelled them into the National League playoff positions.

The former Oxford United striker put the visitors in front with six minutes on the clock, but the Silkmen were level moments later.

The home side's equaliser came from a corner in the eighth minute, Tony Diagne meeting Paul Turnbull's cross with a thumping header that made the net ripple.

Constable netted his second and Eastleigh's decider just after the hour mark, guiding home the rebound after Lee Cook's shot from outside the box came back off the post.

The result moves Eastleigh up to fourth place in the table, while Macclesfield remain in ninth.
