Romford 1-1 Tilbury. Good match and probably a fair result.

4:54pm

Huge bundle in the box with Weemes and Rimmel both coming close. Cleared frantically. Reynolds is booked for Romford.

4:52pm

Weemes with a brilliant chance to win it for Dockers. He is clean through but his shot is straight at the keeper and pushed away.

4:51pm

Both sides pushing for a winner in the closing moments!

4:50pm

Another soft one. Reynolds involved in a collision with West and the ref blows. There were huge appeals so maybe it was a penalty. Very tough to call.

4:49pm

Equaliser for Romford. Paul Clayton with the goal.

4:48pm

Penalty to Romford!

4:47pm

Oates goes in very hard on Rimmel but he won the ball fair and square.

Looked a very soft one on first view. Ashton went over after being brushed. Goal anyway and Dockers lead.

4:43pm

Weemes steps up and scores down the middle!

4:43pm

Penalty to Tilbury!

4:43pm

Tilbury sub Francis off and Mitchell Gilbey comes on.

4:40pm

Reynolds finds space on the right of the box and hits it high across the face, looks destined for the top corner but Ramos sees it wide.

4:37pm

Weemes looks to break free of his marker but Barry blocks away for a corner.

4:36pm

Sam West is receiving treatment at the moment.

4:35pm

Waters is getting from stick from the home fans and is giving as good as he is getting!

4:34pm

Another sub - Daniel Rimmel replaces Babalola for Tilbury

4:31pm

Subs - Romford Eddie Hart replaces Tom Richardson

Tilbury - Lee Weemes replaces Aldwinkle.

4:30pm

4:29pm

Babalola has a chance but his near post shot is blocked. Game is getting very stretched!

4:28pm

Barry fouls Babalola twenty yards out. Freekick to be taken by Waters or Ashton. Hopeless effort but Cutler's follow up isn't. He strikes wide from the edge of the box. Decent effort.

4:26pm

Aaron Waters and the ref get in each others way. Waters is not impressed at the official who blocked his path. Getting feisty now.

4:24pm

Babalola is booked after too much chat. Freekick Romford.

4:23pm

Ormand almost handles it outside the box! He is under pressure from the on rushing Aldwinkle and looked as though he used his arm to clear. Nothing given. Dockers looking most likely now.

4:22pm

Ashton goes down in the box under pressure from Ormand. Looked a great shout from up in the press box but Mr Phillips says nothing doing. Ashton and Francis are furious with that.

4:17pm

Norris is on the floor after a coming together with Ashton. He gets a booking.

4:16pm

Brilliant link up play down the Romford right. Interplay between Ottley and Richardson sees the latter find space in the box. He hits a right footed shot side when the play deserved a goal.

4:13pm

Neither side seems to have been inspired by their halftime team talk. Lots of niggly tackles and a lack of quality in the middle of the park.

4:10pm

Terrific work by Seymour. He beats two players but arrows a shot wide.

4:08pm

Woodward sneaks in at the far post and is only blocked by the outstretched leg of Ramos.

4:07pm

Second half underway here.

3:48pm

Romford 0-0 Tilbury

3:48pm

Jones with a fierce drive across the face for Romford that has Ramos at full stretch. Just wide.

3:46pm

Best chance for Tilbury! Ashton fires a low cross from the left and Aldwinkle's shot is smothered by Ormand. Good save.

3:43pm

3:43pm

Neither team has dominated this first half. Romford have had the best chances but Tilbury look decent on the ball. Saying that they have just hoofed a ball out of play.

3:41pm

Coming together between Ramos and Richardson after a collision in the box. The pair square up to each other and the ref steps in. Foul awarded.

3:37pm

Francis Lmost gets his head on a deep Mead cross but Ormand flaps it away. Moments later Ashton hits a right footed shot just wide. Decent effort.

3:34pm

Great save Ramos! Cross from Ottley is met by Jones who hits a first time half volley at goal. Ramos tips wide acrobatically. From the corner Reynolds heads over when well placed.

3:32pm

Ashton and Francis have linked up really well first half. The former wins a freekick on the right that comes to nothing. 

3:28pm

Very harsh call against Francis as he made progress down the right but Boro break and Jones is in the box. He jinks inside Mead and shoots but its a terrific block for a corner.

3:26pm

Very late tackle from Sam West draws the first booking of the game. He hacked down Jones as he was running at goal.

Very late tackle from Sam West draws the first booking of the game. He hacked down Jones as he was running at goal. 

3:24pm

He shoots over left footed when the right foot of Cutler might have been a better choice.

3:23pm

Now it is the away side who have a freekick in a dangerous position. Ashton has been the best player for Dockers and he looks likely to take this.

3:20pm

Woodward is brought down by the outstretched leg of Francis and a freekick is awarded. Clumsy but no card.

3:18pm

Oates with a freekick that went across the face and is palmed away by the keeper. Really decent effort. Corner to Boro is headed wide by Clayton.

3:16pm

 

3:15pm

Chance for Aldwinkle! The cross to the near post is met by the head of the forward and he heads over from the angle. Should be testing the keeper.

3:14pm

3:12pm

Both sides having good spells of possession. Very even contest with both looking good on the counter.

3:11pm

Abs Seymour is doing a terrific job in the centre for Boro. Very solid.

3:07pm

Babalola and Francis link up well but the shot is blocked behind. Romford counter and win a free kick after a cynical block by Waters.

3:05pm

Oates shoots over from outside the box. Good work from the home side. Tilbury under pressure early on.

3:04pm

Richardson with an early chance for Romford. The offside trap is sprung and he races behind Mead to force a good save out of Ramos.

3:01pm

Teams to follow 

2:38pm

Good afternoon and welcome to Ship Lane for our coverage of Romford vs Tilbury in this Ryman North Division match.
The Dockers are on a rotten run of form having lost four on the bounce and won only one of their last 11 games.
However, Romford are also in trouble following a run of six consecutive defeats and only one win in their last ten games.
Romford won both of these encounters last season.
