Hawks boss Lee Bradbury felt that it was a game of two halves in today’s 2-2 draw with local rivals Eastleigh.


The Hawks came back from a two goal defecit with 12 minutes to play to come back and draw the game at Westleigh Park.


But the gaffer admitted that the first half the Hawks didn’t show what they were capable off.


Bradbury said: “I thought the first half we were slow to second balls, getting around the pitch and their experience showed a little bit.


“But once we addressed a few things at half time, it felt more like a derby, and more like a game we wanted to win, and wanted to tackle, and wanted to compete in and we done that much better in the second half and made a better game of it.”


However, when Alfie Rutherford missed a penalty with just over 20 minutes to play, the Hawks boss was fearful of the outcome.


“I was looking at it (the penalty miss) and thinking it might not be our day, because I thought if we scored that penalty, we might have gone on and got a point or possibly three.


“Then we score, and the fans the fans got behind us then.


“The second half we were much better, the running off the ball, the tackling, the simple things that we talk about as a group we did much better in the second half and therefore for me a much more complete team in the second half.”
