In the second of our series of ‘Views from the other side' the incredibly vigilant Chris Hulme has found another fan from one of our opponents; this time it we welcome Eastleigh fan Jamie Truslove to put his own individual slant on the questions that are asked of him.

How old were you when you went to your first Eastleigh match, and who did you go with?

I was about 18 as I first came to Hampshire when I started university at Southampton Solent in 2013, I went to a few Saints games and heard Eastleigh were doing well in the lower divisions so thought I'd go along and see what they're like. I went to the game with a few of my course mates.

What was it that made you an Eastleigh supporter?
I joined the media team at Eastleigh in 2014 and started supporting the club as I went to every home game, therefore picking up an affiliation for the club and hoping that they would do well since then!

What is your memorable moment between Eastleigh and Macclesfield Town?
It would have to be last season when Eastleigh played Macclesfield at The Silverlake live on BT Sport, Eastleigh won 4-0 that day and I remember our midfielder Jai Reason scoring a great goal from outside the penalty area.

Who is your stand out player for Eastleigh this season and why?

It would have to be striker James Constable, who is our top goal scorer and can always be relied up-front when we need a goal. Yemi Odubade is a close second, though, as he has been outstanding in the midfield for us this season.

If there is one Macclesfield Town player you could sign, can you tell me who it would be it be and why?

It would have to be Kristian Dennis, his goal scoring record this season has been impeccable He is scoring so many goals and looks like a top striker; not just for Macclesfield because when you look at the league in general he's up there with the best in front of goal.

If there is one thing you would like to change at Eastleigh, what would it be?

It would have to be status of the club. We have grown so much in the past few years and not too many people know about Eastleigh aside from the locals and the other teams in the league. Hopefully if Eastleigh do well this year in the league, and get a strong FA Cup run a few more people will know a bit more about the club.

What is your score prediction for the match?

I think we're in good form lately. Our squad is starting to really gel together so I am going to back an Eastleigh win. It will be hard to keep out Kristian Dennis, but I am going to say 3-1 to Eastleigh.
