Elsewhere today - Thurrock 4-1 Brentwood Town, Kingstonian 4-1 Grays, AFC Hornchurch 3-0 East Thurrock.
Aveley players collapsed all over the field. Shipping two goals in the last five minues will anger Gardner.
The penalty was awarded when Cook's shot struck Nurudeen on the hand. The Aveley man was booked for that after the goal.
LAST KICK OF THE MATCH SEES THE GOAL GIVE TILBURY THE WIN
DANNY FRANCIS SCORES AGAIN
Teddy Nesbitt booked for that. Cook still getting treatment.
Calamity in the Aveley defence sees the 'keeper almost let in Cook. Cook is then fouled by Nesbitt just outside the box.
Brilliant tackle from Daniel stops Wall from unleashing a shot.
Brilliant delivery just evades the diving header from Jake Pooley. So close to a second goal.
Cook with a freekick
Aveley could have shot themselves in the foot there. Tilbury pressing for the winner.
A slip by Wilson lets in Francis and it looks like he had wasted the chance having dawdled on the ball. However he plays the ball back for Mead and his cross takes a bobble and is half cleared before falling to Francis. The front man slightly scuffs his left foot volley but it finds the far corner!
GOAL! DANNY FRANCIS FOR TILBURY!
Daniel heads over from eight yards when well placed. Half chance for Dockers there.
Hopkins fouls Cook. Freekick for Tilbury.
Junior Appiah bicycle kick has just gone out for a throw in. Not his finest moment.
Subs for both sides. Tilbury replace Jacobs with James Zanelli. Aveley replace Holland with Matty Bakare
Nearing the last ten minutes at Chadfields. Tilbury corner.
Cook's free kick goes over. Vaughan will not be happy with the ref there.
Francis is fouled and referee blows up instead of allowing the advantage. Jacobs was through on goal there so very controvsersial.
Danny Francis replaces the injured Lee Weemes for Tilbury. A blow for the home side as Weemes has been lively.
Meanwhile Twum is replaced by Kadir Jama for Aveley
Tilbury have a man off the pitch receiving treatment.
Brilliant work from Weemes sees his mazy run blocked by a last ditch tackle.
Aveley really playing some nice football now. Wall is bossing the cenre midfield.
Stephenson hits the inside of the near post!
Leader goal slightly harsh on Tilbury who had come out with real purpose at the start of this second half.

Simple goal. Corner from Holland is nodded in at the far post by the giant Leader. Easy goal.
AVELEY TAKE THE LEAD. JAY LEADER WITH A HEADER!
Up the other end Ross Wall hits the bar from 20 yards! Corner ball as Stephenson looks to get on the end of the rebound.
Harry Cook hits the post from 25 yards with a low free-kick! Brilliant technique with the outside of the boot from the Dockers man

Subs for both sides. Tilbury take off Babalola and bring on Ryan Blackman. Aveley replace Oakley with Anton Stephenson
Not a lot happening at the moment. Oakley shoots from 30 yards but ball rolls into 'keeper's arms. Aveley pressing once again.
Tilbury the better side in this match now. Half time pep talk must have been good!
Jacobs is bundled over by Wilson in the box but ref points for a corner. A decent shout for a penalty for Dockers.
GOAL: KINGSTONIAN 2-1 Grays Athletic - Andre McCollin (53') http://t.co/3l6NeM0aVC— @KingstonianFC 07 September 2013
Leader plays in Twum on the counter from the corner but his shot swerves wide at the near post. Good start to the second half.
Mead and Jacobs combining well down the right for Tilbury. Another corner.
Tilbury corner is well claimed by Giddens.
Good start to the second half from Tilbury. Weemes cross from wide right hits the outside of the near post.
Error from Mead almost lets Twum in straight away but his shot got over at the near post.
Aveley get us underway in the second period.
Aveley out first in the second half
HALF TIMES SCORES: - Thurrock 1-0 Brentwood Town, Kingstonian 1-1 Grays (McCollin equalising right on the whistle) and AFC Hornchurch 1-0 East Thurrock.
Good first half from Aveley with Appiah a menace down the right-wing. Tilbury lacking opportunities although arguably had the best chance after Weemes shot wide.
Some of the language used here this afternoon has been less than savoury. The officials have been on the receiving end of a lot of swear words this afternoon and that is not necessary - especially for some of the younger fans here today. We wan't people to support and watch our non-league sides but why should they bring their families to hear so much swearing?
Tilbury boss Paul Vaughan given severe telling off by the ref at half-time after he calls some of the decisions 'rubbish'
Tilbury FC 0-0 Aveley FC
Wilson is booked for tugging back Twum
Thurrock 1 Brentwood 0 (OG James Love 42min)— @ThurrockFCscore 07 September 2013
Nurudeen is not giving Babalola any space. Wide man is having no joy today. Very strong performance from the full-back.
A lot of free-kicks given. Very tetchy match. Ref getting an awful lot of criticism from the players.
Aveley cranking up the pressure as half-time approaches. Twum pushes Mead in the back in the box and free-kick to home side awarded.
Oakley free-kick is shovelled round the post by Ramos. Good save.
Pooley goes flying into the challenge and although he gets a bit of the ball ref awards the freekick. Right decision I say as very hard challenge. No card.
Appiah the most dangerous player on the pitch. Giving Daniel a torrid time although a good tackle denies him there.
Tensions starting to run high. Players need to concentrate on the match and let the referee do his job.
Wilson clatters into 'keeper Ramos from Nesbitt freekick. Freekick to home side.
Babalola drags down Appiah. West has an awful lot to say to the referee. No card this time. Freekick in advanced position
Ball being played around the midfield at the moment. Oakley chance for Aveley still the best of the match. No goals so far.
Appiah takes it but just over the bar. Decent effort from the wide man.
Twum is brought down on edge of the box by West. Freekick in a great position
Jacobs through on goal but his shot is put over under pressure from a defender. Cutler, a nippy winger, looks a good outlet for Dockers
Giddens very vocal in goal. I hope for Aveley's defenders sake they don't lose their concentration again.
Tilbury have grown into the match but Aveley certainly the more likely
Oakley hits the post! Bad back pass from Babalola sees Oakley through on goal. He is forced out wide and his left foot shot from the touchline clips the far post.
Twum is hacked down by Sam Cutler. Booking and a deserved one. Aveley bench is not impressed.
Aveley 'keeper Giddens is screaming at his defence for that lapse in concentration.
Lee Weemes is through for Tilbury after a quick free-kick and his shot somehow misses the far post. Should have scored.
Tilbury need to get the ball and kock it about for a bit
GOAL: Kingstonian 0-1 GRAYS ATHLETIC - Chuck Duru (13') http://t.co/rUFZaDKazQ— @GAFCJones 07 September 2013
Aveley corner is missed by a Tilbury player at the near post but is cleared after bouncing to safety.
Chance for Aveley. Twum races forward and lays off to full-back Nesbitt. His shot is lashed over. Took a deflection so a corner to the away side. Wilson heads wide at the far post.
Nurudeen and Weemes exchange words but handbags
Oakley, Wall and Twum combine well but cross is blocked. Keeper Ramos claims the loose ball.
Leader is a huge presence at the back for Aveley now he is available to boss Justin Gardner
Jacobs is through on goal for Tilbury but Giddens comes out to claim at his feet.
Wall's left footed shot is shanked well wide. Aveley have the wind with them first half. Will look to take advantage of that.
Hopkins and Wall being well marshalled by the Tilbury centre halves - although Millers movement is high quality.
Aveley corner fizzes across the six yard box and is smashed clear. Away team well on top.
Aveley are cranking up the pressure in the sunshine.
Ball is really holding up in the wind here
Foul throw from Nurudeen deep in Tilbury half
High tempo start from Aveley. Terrific tackle from Pooley stops Appiah getting through
Tilbury get us underway at Chadfields
Teams are out - Aveley in all red this afternoon. Tilbury in white and black stripes
We have had some technical difficulties in recent weeks but fingers crossed today will go well!
