10:07pm

That's all for tonight. Join me again at Chelmsford City on Saturday afternoon.

9:44pm

Town can consider themselves very unfortunate. They were the better side for most of the game but just lacked a cutting edge.

Reaction to follow.

9:39pm

Havant and Waterlooville 1 Basingstoke Town 0

9:37pm

That's another good chance for Havant's Oli. Ciardini found him with a low centre and he looked certain to score, but he shot too close to Wells, who blocked with his legs.

Town will have three minutes of injury-time to force extra-time.

9:31pm

Oli has another run at goal. This time he tries to lob Wells from distance but it's straight into the 'keeper's arms.

9:30pm

That's a dangerous ball in from Smart but Bevan does enough to get it away.

9:28pm

Eight minutes plus added time left. Starting to look like it might be one of those nights for Town.

9:26pm

Shaun McAuley's low cross has to be pushed to safety by Bevan in the home goal.

Havant go straight up the other end and Oli is through, but it's a weak shot, straight at Wells.

9:24pm

Steve Ramsey lets fly from distance but that's a long way wide.

9:22pm

Daly tries the same trick from another free-kick but that's sliced badly wide.

9:21pm

DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION - Basingstoke Town - Andrew Jenkinson and Jordace Holder-Spooner on for Simon Dunn and Robbie Matthews (74 min)

9:19pm

Manny Williams shoots from 20 yards but it's scuffed well wide.

9:18pm

DOUBLE SUBSTITUTION - Havant and Waterlooville - Ryan Woodford and Steve Ramsey on for Christian Nanetti and Sahr Kabba (69 min)

9:16pm

Good build-up play leads to a chance for Manny Williams, whose effort from the edge of the area is beaten away by Bevan.

9:11pm

Kabba gets the better of Nathan Smart down the left, cutting inside and firing an angled shot over the crossbar.

9:10pm

Another big chance for the visitors. Manny Williams crosses from the left and Simon Dunn is at the far post to knock the ball back across goal.

Neil Barrett is on the end of it but Bevan shows great reactions to keep the ball out from point-blank range.

9:06pm

TOWN HIT THE CROSSBAR

Green knocks a free-kick to the side for Wes Daly to strike. It's a great effort frm 25 yards, destined for the top corner until Bevan gets a fingertip to it, doing just enough to push it onto the bar.

A great strike matched by a great save. 

9:04pm

Nic Ciardini - Havant and Waterlooville

Ciardini bundles Dunn over in midfield and gets a booking.

9:03pm

Dennis Oli gets in a shot from the edge of the area but it's easy for Wells in the Town goal.

8:57pm

More wastefulness from Town, Adam Green firing well wide when presented with a chance to shoot from 25 yards.

8:56pm

Wishing i was there tonight to support the lads but duty calls and was working good 2nd half needed to get us back into the game not over yet boys COYD

8:55pm

SUBSTITUTION - Havant and Waterloovile - Jesse Kewley-Graham on for Scott Jones (49 min)

Jones had picked up a knock and had to be replaced.

8:51pm

Town kick the second half off. No changes for either side.

8:40pm

Town have actually done quite well, especially since going behind, but they are struggling to create anything against a well-organised Havant side. 

They haven't scored in five halves of football now. I fancy we might see Jordace Holder-Spooner fairly soon.

8:36pm

Havant and Waterlooville 1 Basingstoke Town 0

8:36pm

Christian Nanetti - Havant and Waterlooville

Nanetti earns a yellow for a mistimed tackle on Nathan Smart as the game ticks into one minute of added time at the end of the first half.

It's a good ball in from the free-kick but no Town player can get on the end of it and McAuley blasts a shot well over in the follow-up.

8:31pm

Nigel Atangana - Havant and Waterlooville

Atangana is booked for a cynical trip on Simon Dunn as he looked to break through.

Adam Green wastes the free-kick, blasting miles over.

8:24pm

Town are on top at the moment but they are lacking an end product.

8:20pm

A nice passing move leads to a shooting opportunity for Manny Williams. He gets plenty of power behind his shot but it flies well over.

8:16pm

That's better from Town. Barrett whips in a dangerous cross and Shaun McAuley, on the stretch can only divert it straight at the home 'keeper.

8:14pm

Havant go close again. Barrett is caught dawdling on the edge of the area and Nigel Atangana picks his pocket before smashing in a low shou that flashes past the far post.

8:11pm

That's a nice ball from Wes Daly to Simon Dunn but the youngster's shot from the edge of the area flies way over.

8:08pm

Neil Barrett - Basingstoke Town

Barrett goes into the book after a late challenge in midfield.

8:05pm

Almost a chance for a second, Wells just about collecting a ball over the top before an attacker got there.

Attche other end, Adam Green fires in a low shot from a free-kick but it's too close to Scott Bevan, who gathers at the second attempt.

7:59pm

Havant and Waterlooville 1 Basingstoke Town 0 - Sahr Kabba (11 min)

It's a great individual goal, but Town must be disappointed with their defending there.

SAHR KABBA picked the ball up 25 yards out bent nobody got close to him. He turned past one man before jinking his way into the area, beating at least two more men, and slipping the ball under Wells.

7:57pm

Nic Ciardini is allowed to run a long way from left-back, eventually requiring a block from Jay Gasson to stop him getting a shot on goal.

Nanetti has a go from distance but it's way over.

7:55pm

Scott Jones meets Christian Nanetti's ball in, but his header is straight at Town goalkeeper Louis Wells.

7:52pm

Not a lot has happened so far. The sides seem to be feeling each other out.

7:48pm

Havant get us up and under way.

7:45pm

The players are out. Kick-off is imminent.

7:40pm

7:39pm

The players have gone in to receive their final instructions. Not long to go now.

7:37pm
