Crewe 0-1 Eastleigh- Match Report

Ben Strevens' spot-kick sees non-league Eastleigh overturn CreweEastleigh staged an FA Cup first-round upset as Ben Strevens' second-half penalty secured the National League side a deserved 1-0 win against ten-man Crewe.The non-league visitors turned the screw after home goalkeeper Ben Garratt was sent off for bringing down the lively Yemi Odubade just over the hour mark.Odubade was a pest throughout and had a first-half effort cleared off the line by Ben Nugent.Crewe had started the brighter and Nugent went close with a header from a corner, before Marcus Haber volleyed wide.Yet Andy Drury sent a warning across the bows when his angled shot flew inches past the far post, with Eastleigh finishing the first half strongly as Odubade twice went close.The striker was then put in by partner James Constable, but was denied by a smart save by Garratt.But when Odubade raced clear onto Drury's pass, Garratt's desperate challenge off his line was misjudged and saw the striker upended a yard outside the box.Josh Payne drove the resulting free kick onto the roof of the net, but the non-league side scented an upset.And when substitute Ross Lafayette was tripped by Dan Nizic, Strevens sent the substitute keeper the wrong way from the penalty spot in the 75th minute
