Paul Doswell declared himself happy with Havant & Waterlooville’s pre-season programme which culminated with a 2-0 win against Eastleigh at Westleigh Park.

Goals from Roarie Deacon and Josh Taylor were enough to see off National League opposition for successive weekends.

The Hawks defeated Sutton seven days earlier, while they also delivered friendly wins against  Alresford, Bognor and Winchester City this summer.

Their only friendly defeat was a 2-1 reverse to Pompey.Doswell felt it was another solid performance from his side against Eastleigh ahead of the Hawks’ National League South curtain-raiser against Welling United on Saturday.

The Westleigh Park boss said: “The past two games have given us a good feel for where we are at.

“Portsmouth provided us with our glamour game but the ones that have really mattered have been the past couple.

“Both were tough games against teams playing in the league above us.

“It’s pleasing to come out on the right side in both.”
