LV Bet Preview: The Matchday 12 Stat Pack

By Oliver Osborn

Each gameweek, The National League's official betting partner LV Bet provides the lowdown of the key matches across the Vanarama National League. Find out all you need to know ahead of Matchday 12.

AFC Fylde vs. Eastleigh

They were firmly among the teams being talked about for a title challenge before a ball was kicked.

But in a season full of surprises so far, the name of well-backed AFC Fylde is nowhere to be seen.

So disappointing is their campaign to date that Dave Challinor’s side - National League Promotion Finalists back in May - are currently in the bottom four.

Their last win came eight games ago on August 10 against Ebbsfleet United. Is this the moment their rise begins?

Eastleigh are no fools this season and have lost just one of their last six games. They have a good record on BT Sport too and Ben Strevens’ young side are looking good for another play-off push after getting to the semi-finals last time out.

The Spitfires have found their goal-touch, too. Scoring in each of their last six games after netting only twice in their opening five fixtures.
