3:26pm

3:11pm

Apologies to slow start to live feed. Signal problems once again coming to the fore!

3:11pm

Here are this afternoon's teams...

2:46pm

Good afternoon and welcome to Chadfields for LIVE commentary on Tilbury vs Waltham Abbey in the FA Cup 1st qualifying round.

Tilbury come into the FA Cup tie off the back of two good results. Seven days ago they secured a last gasp win against Thurrock rivals Aveley when Danny Francis scored two late goals. Francis was at it again midweek when he scored an injury time equaliser against Redbridge. He starts today.

Meanwhile Waltham Abbey beat Brentwood 3-2 last weekend and beat Whitton United (after a replay) to progress to this round. Tilbury beat Kirkley & Pakefield 2-0 in the preliminary round.

 

The two sides met in the FA Cup last year with a thrilling 3-3 draw played out at Chadfields. Dockers nicked a 1-0 win in the league.

Both teams are on a good run of form. Dockers having lost one in the last six. WA won their last five.
