  • Ryman Division One North
  • Ade Yussuf gave Town a 31st minute lead, but second half goals from Elbi and Elliot seal three points for Millers.

And here, the game is finally finished. Justin Gardner, on the far touchline, jumps for joy as his Aveley side come from one down to win 2-1  in the second half.

The team certainly weren't at their best, but goals from Petrit Elbi and Marcus Elliot see Millers make it three wins from three.

There will be reaction from Justin Gardner on here later.

East Thurrock United have drawn with Hendon, 1-1.

4:56pm

Sounds like a corking game at Needham Market. It's just finished Needham 5 - 3 Tilbury.

4:55pm

Junior Baker has called a team meeting while a Chatham player receives treatment for a head injury. 

Aveley should have this won now...once the game restarts, there can only be seconds left.

4:54pm

We've now played two minutes more than the two added on...

4:53pm

It should be three to Aveley! Bricknell bursts into the box but he can't get a shot away. He plays the ball to Elliot but Welham makes a good sprawling save.

4:51pm

It's a huge surprise that more Chatham Town players haven't been booked. Phillip hauls down Bakare. Just a talking to... Aveley have had five players booked!

4:50pm

Two minutes added on

4:49pm

Chatham free kick now... played long into the box by Solly, but no one in red can turn it in.

4:49pm

Aveley - Danny Francis replaced by Perry Tamburini

4:48pm

4:48pm

4:45pm

Joe Bricknell - Aveley

4:42pm

Great goal. Excellent work on the right by Francis. On the touchline, he tricks his way past Loft before cutting the ball back. From eight yards, Elliot is on hand to slam the ball in to the roof of the net.

4:41pm

GOOOOAAALLLL! AVELEY 2 - 1 Chatham Town - Marcus Elliot, 80'

4:36pm

Medley is replaced by Phillip

4:35pm

4:34pm

Panic at the back for Aveley as Baker and Marrable land Kanu in trouble. But he clears.

4:31pm

4:30pm

25 yard shot from Taylor is straight at Marrable.

4:25pm

Great tackle by Billy Coyne as he prevents Taylor from putting the ball into the back of the net

4:24pm

Joe Bricknell replaced Petrit Elbi

4:23pm

4:22pm

4:21pm

Wonderful dinked pass into the Aveley box by Hales. Yussuf gathers, but his first touch takes him away from goal. Marrable comes out to block the shot.

4:20pm

Elliot  tees up Weemes on the edge of the box, but Weemes scoops the ball over the bar.

4:17pm

Aaron Gayle is replaced by Aziz Kanu

4:16pm

And from that ball in, Elbi bundles the ball home! Aveley equalise. A much needed goal, both for Aveley and this game.

4:15pm

GOOOAAALLLL!!!! AVELEY 1 - 1 Chatham Town - Petrit Elbi, 55'

4:14pm

Lee Weemes scuffs his shot but ball comes back in from Elliot

4:09pm

Well it hasn't been the explosive start to the second half i'd hoped for. In fact, nine minutes in, there's very little to report at all.

4:04pm

Here, though, the second half has just started.

4:02pm

Sad news emerging from Cappershots, where Waltham Abbey's game with Burnham Ramblers has been abandoned. Ben Bradbury has a suspected broken leg.

The air ambulance was called, but not needed.

3:52pm

Aziz Kanu is warming up for Aveley at half time. Looks like he'll be coming on. Aveley need to liven things up.

3:50pm

Half time scores from elsewhere:

Needham Market 2 - 0 Tilbury

Hampton & Richmond Borough 0 - 1 Grays Athletic

Thurrock 2 - 0 Dereham Town

East Thurrock United 0 - 1 Hendon

3:47pm

Half time

Aveley 0 - 1 Chatham Town

3:46pm

One minute added on,  as Coyne has a free kick into the box cleared away.

3:45pm

Now Junior Baker, marauding forward, shoots high and wide. Been a very disappointing half by Aveley.

3:43pm

Chances at both ends.

Elliot does well, getting to the by line and cutting the ball back, but Welham palms the ball away.

Then Medley should score for Chatham as he gets in behind, but between them, Nesbitt and Marrable force the ball behind.

3:39pm

Stavrinou strikes from 25 yards, his shot hits the net support behind the goal.

3:38pm

At the other end, Yussuf goes close, shaking off Coyne before sending a curled shot just over the bar.

3:38pm

Much better play by Aveley. Stavrinou, Bakare, Francis link up well, but Weemes can't get enough on his shot.

3:36pm

Superb ball in from the right by Hales but Knight just fails to connect with it at the back post.

Chatham very much on top at the moment.

3:35pm

Yet again Aveley's high line is breached, but this time Gacheru is wasteful with his pass.

3:33pm

Non-league football is rarely predictable, but a goal via that route was always coming.

Ade Yussuf again gets in behind a high Aveley line. This time, the ball over the top is a very  good length.

Yussuf bounds clear before prodding the ball past Marrable from 18 yards.

3:32pm

GOOOAAALLL!! Aveley 0 - 1 CHATHAM TOWN - Ade Yussuf, 31'

3:30pm

Nesbitt takes it, but the ball beats everyone.

3:29pm

Aveley win a corner

3:26pm

3:25pm

Cheers as Chatham find the net!!!

But it's the wrong side.

3:25pm

Aaron Gayle - Aveley

Gayle is the game's first booking. He's just taken Yussuf out.

3:23pm

For the second time in quick succession, the high  line that Aveley are playing fails to catch Yussuf out. He gets away from Baker and co. but the ball over is too long on this occasion.

3:20pm

Great save by Marrable, as Yussuf wriggles clear, gets away from Nesbitt. His low shot is blocked well by the former Tilbury stopper though.

3:18pm

Yusuff shoots just wide for Chatham. He's made a bright start. No end product from the forward so far though.

3:16pm

Marrable does well to punch clear.

Then Millers counter attack and spurn a really good chance. Weemes is screaming for the ball - unmarked in the middle - but Francis runs, head down, down the left and ignores Weemes' cries.

He wins a free kick which Stavrinou over hits.

3:14pm

Good stuff from Yusuff as the game finds some life, he gets down the left only for hiss cross to be turned behind by Coyne.

Corner..

3:10pm

Charlie Stimson, back in the side for Thurrock, and bacck in the goals. Thurrock lead Dereham Town 1-0 at Ship Lane.

3:08pm

Just under eight minutes into the game here.

Not too much to report yet. Chatham have settled quickest and forced a decent save from Marrable with a header.
