  • Adam Green has had the visitors' best chances testing Nathan Ashmore three times.
  • A floodlight failure ends the game four minutes into the second-half.


Match reaction and with Jason Bristow ill, assistant Michael Gilkes was in charge and he said: "it is a disappointing end to the game, but this is the first time the floodlights have failed here.

"We made a few changes from the Farnborough game and we looked better and created a lot chances, but went in at the break trailing. We were looking to put this right in the second-half, but then the lights went out."


The game has been abandoned after 49 minutes. A bit of a shame as it was an entertaining game. A shame also after all the hard work getting the game on.


Still working on the lights they hope to turn them on in five minutes. Some of the Town players are on the pitch having a kick about.


The players have left the field as the lights need to cool down and will not be turned on again for 10 minutes.


Five minutes into the second-half and the floodlights on the Harry Mizen Stand side of the game brings the game to a halt.


Town kick-off the second-half.
