4:55pm

Thurrock 1-1 Maldon & Tiptree

4:54pm

Brilliant tracking back by Rob Clark to stop a break. Volley from Condon is well saved by Walker.

4:53pm

Well cleared by the visitors. This game is just about up.

4:52pm

4:52pm

Thurrock pushing for the winner with minutes to go. Five men forward in this attack!

4:51pm

Ref blows up and books Perkins when he should have played the advantage, MT were away there! Bad decision.

4:49pm

MT sub - Jay Nash replaces Hunter

Thurrock sub - Callum Iberia replaces Hazelwood

4:48pm

4:48pm

4:48pm

A break is on for Thurrock but Wall passes straight to the opposition when he had Warner for company. Real chance wasted

4:47pm

A break is on for Thurrock but Wall passes straight to the opposition when he had Warner for company. Real chance wasted,

4:45pm

Lewis Clark clears from underneath his own cross bar under pressure. Well defended.

4:45pm

Hazelwood advances well but smashes over wildly when Wall and Perkins were available.

4:43pm

Game is fizzling out here - which will be to the homes sides suiting. MT haven't pressed home their advantage at all. They looked more threatening when it was 11vs11

4:41pm

Brilliant from East Thurrock to come from two down to lead in the cup! 

4:40pm

4:39pm

Header from Santos flies over after a good in swinging delivery from Perkins.

4:39pm

4:38pm

Scrambling save by Walker after Hunter loops a header towards the far post. Thurrock break and Wall's cross lashed across the face just avoids the onrushing yellow and green shirts.

4:37pm

4:36pm

MT sub - Arron Condon replaces Pinto

4:36pm

4:35pm

Fleet have not lost their shape so to lost it in the last 15 minutes would hurt. Stimson is sitting in the Directors Box...looking calm.

4:34pm

Thurrock have defended really well in the last 15 minutes. Santos has been very impressive.

4:33pm

Thurrock have had five players booked today, six including Stimson's two meaning the club will get a fine.

4:31pm

MT sub - Jack Stevenson comes on for Gardner

4:27pm

Maldon & Tiptree need to step it up soon. Thurrock haven't been overly pressed in the second half despite being a man light. Stimmo wouldn't be unhappy with a point I daresay!

4:25pm

Santos is booked. For nothing. He tried to stop a throw in momentarily and out comes the card. Ten yellow cards and two reds  shown in this game now.

4:22pm

4:21pm

Pinto is booked for the away side. 

4:21pm

4:20pm

Thurrock camped inside their own half at the moment. Good probing play from the away side. They know they have the advantage and are not rushing it.

4:18pm

Really nice clipped ball by Johnson finds Pond from fullback in the box. His cross is brilliantly defended and from the resulting corner Walker palms a drive away to keep the scores level.

4:16pm

I wish I could write more about the football but not much has been played second half. 

4:16pm

Eight yellow cards (including two for Stimson) so far..

4:15pm

Warner and Gardner are called over by the referee after another melee. Both are booked as well as Toner for the away side.

4:12pm

Martin is bowled over by Blues forward Hunter who gets booked.

4:10pm

Pinto is in for the visitors but his cross shot is clipped beyond the keeper and cleared.

4:09pm

Away side controlling early possession. Seems like Wall and Perkins are interchanging up top so one can help out midfield. Risk being overrun otherwise.

4:07pm

Films has also been replaced by Conor Martin for Fleet. Not sure why that change has been made.

4:06pm

Thurrock have made a change - Brad Warner is on Stanley has gone off.

4:05pm

Teams are back out. MT to kick us off.

3:53pm

HT: Bury Town 2-1 Grays Athletic, East Thurrock 0-1 Merthyr Town, Aveley 1-1 Cheshunt, Tilbury 1-0 Ware

3:52pm

3:51pm

3:51pm

3:51pm

What a manic first half! Two goals, two red cards and plenty of debatable decisions. If anything Stimson should have been sent off for charging down The earlier freekick. By the laws of the game he should have gone.

3:50pm

Half time Thurrock 1-1 Maldon & Tiptree

3:49pm

I should have made it clear - that was Charlie Stimson. His dad and manager Mark had been sent off earlier in the half! Wonder if that has happened before!

3:48pm

Stimson is sent off for Thurrock! A handball as he looked to head past the keeper. Can't argue with that.

3:47pm

Action packed few minutes at Ship Lane. Great entertainment.

3:46pm

Action packed few minutes at Ship Lane. Great entertainment.

3:44pm

The big man out jumps his man to head past Willis in Fleet's first meaningful attack!

3:43pm

Thurrock equalise through Ricardo Santos!

3:43pm

A terrible freekick from Toner hits the wall from the left hand side, it bounces back to him and he feeds the ball into the box. Hunter lays the ball off and shoots, blocked by a lunge from Santos. However the loose ball falls to defender Harrison who lashes home.

3:41pm

Harrison scores for Maldon & Tiptree!

3:40pm

Gilman hacks down Johnson as he marauded forward. Been very impressed by the Blues (Oranges) skipper.

3:38pm

Stimson has been sent off! Thurrock manager obviously had too much to say about a lot of today's decisions!

3:35pm

Blackwood hasn't looked comfortable at left back today. Freekick about to be sent in from the left flank. 

3:33pm

3:33pm

Very controversial. Ref blows for a foul as a cross comes flying in but the linesman doesn't give it. The cross strikes a hand and the linesman flags, indicating a penalty but the referee had already blown in Thurrock's favour. For a nothing incident..

3:31pm

3:31pm

A rare shot for Thurrock. Stimson shoots as the ball sits up 20 yards out but it's straight at the keeper.

3:30pm

A rare shot for Thurrock. Stimson shoots as the ball sits up 20 yards out but it's straight at the keeper.

3:29pm

Best chance of the game. Hunter holds up play once again and feeds Toner who had made a late run into the box. He shoots left footed across the keeper but it goes inches wide.

3:29pm

Best chance of the game. Berquez holds up play once again and feeds Toner who had made a late run into the box. He shoots left footed across the keeper but it goes inches wide.

3:28pm

Berquez and Gardner link up really well but Dark shoots just wide.

3:24pm

Thurrock haven't got into their stride in this match at all. Not aided by refereeing decisions but away side looking the most likely.

3:23pm

Toner hits the freekick from 30 yards and it flies just wide. Decent effort.

3:22pm

Gardner is hacked down by Rob Clark. Another booking. Really poor from away side though. They all rush to the ref at every little decision. Get on with the game.

3:20pm

Stimson charges down a freekick from inside the MT half. Away side calling for a second yellow but not given. Very dubious although I think Stimson was more than ten yards away..

3:19pm

Melee in the middle after a late tackle by Hazelwood on Lewis Dark. Was a bad tackle.

3:18pm

Thurrock fans providing great value here

3:17pm

Johnson finds space in the box after a brilliant flick by Gardner. He shoots over from 20 yards when he parhaps should have tested the keeper.

3:15pm

Stimson is booked for a nothing tackle. Don't want to criticise Mr Franklin but he has not started this game at all well. MT rightly furious no advantage was played.

3:13pm

3:12pm

Stimson and Perkins linking up well early doors, mainly benefitting from Wall's flick ons.

3:11pm

Visitors look good in possession. Berquez involved in every attack. 

3:10pm

Thurrock enjoying some possession in their own half but a loose ball falls to Berquez. He runs at the backline but shoots straight at Walker.

3:08pm

3:07pm

Ref now speaks to Gardner after he receives some backchat. However the ref should have played advantage there. Been so stop start so far.

3:05pm

Ref not taking any funny business today. Hunter gets a talking to as he clatters into Santos.

3:04pm

Wall already winning headers against the MT back four. Thurrock pressing well up the pitch.

3:03pm

Ref has to step in straight away when Vaughan gets involved with the Thurrock bench. Very odd. Ref sorts things out well.

3:01pm

Should be a really keenly fought match this. Fancy Fleet to edge it though.

Home side kick off.

2:57pm

Teams are out and we will be ready to go very soon

2:51pm

Apologies for mentioning a few things twice earlier on. Wouldn't want anyone to miss anything after all!

2:49pm

Looking forward to seeing Ross Wall play for Fleet today. Had a storming start to the season for Aveley and scored for them here only a month or so ago!

2:48pm

Throughout I may refer to Maldon & Tiptree as MT. Hope that doesn't offend anyone!

2:47pm

Stuart Franklin is the man in the middle

2:47pm

Thurrock playing in their home strip of yellow and green whilst the visitors will play in a lurid orange.
