Eastleigh manager Ronnie Moore believes the pressure will be firmly back on Swindon Town in their FA Cup first round replay at the County Ground.

The Spitfires, of the National League, held League One Swindon to a 1-1 draw earlier this month.

The winners of the tie will be at home to either FC Halifax or Dagenham & Redbridge in the second round.

“The first goal is going to be important and we’ve got to make sure it’s not them,” Moore said.

“I thought we were unlucky in the first game,” the former Rotherham and Tranmere manager told BBC Radio Solent.

“If we had taken our chances on the night, we would’ve won. But, we’re still in the tie and we’re going to enjoy ourselves. The pressure will be all on them.

“We’ve got nothing to fear as we’ve got plenty of players with experience in the FA Cup.”
