LIVE - Bromley v Basingstoke Town

This live event has finished

5:01pm

FULL-TIME - Bromley 1 Basingstoke Town 2

That's a massive win for Town - and it's probably deserved over the course of the game. Mighty nervy at the end though.

It's not such good news for Reading, who lost 2-1 at Stoke. Cameron Jerome got the hosts' second before Adrian Mariappa pulled one back for the Royals.

See The Monday Gazette for full reports and reaction from all of today's games.

5:01pm

Max Noble fires in a shot that hits Rob Rice. Bromley appeal frantically for a penalty but there's nothing doing.

5:00pm

YELLOW CARD - Manny Williams - Basingstoke Town

Williams is booked for time-wasting.

4:58pm

YELLOW CARD - Wes Daly - Basingstoke Town

The most tactical of fouls there from Daly and he takes the booking.

4:57pm

That's another decent save from Joe Welch, who stands up well when Tim Sills is played through.

Bromley are really going for it now and they have three minutes of stoppage time to complete the comeback.

4:56pm

Another chance for Bromley as a cross comes in from the right - but Louie Theophanous can only head wide.

4:54pm

Shaun McAuley is through and should seal the game - but Joe Welch saves with his legs.

The 'keeper then has to beat away a powerful effort from Manny Williams.

4:53pm

Elsewhere, rather amazingly, London Irish have beaten Saracens 29-16.

4:52pm

It's all Bromley now and Town are relieved to see a near post header from a corner fly over.

4:51pm

SUBSTITUTION - Basingstoke Town - Tim Sills on for Delano Sam-Yorke

4:47pm

BROMLEY HIT THE POST

Good work down the left by Max Noble and his shot is inches away from levelling the game - the ball smacking against the far post.

4:46pm

Another great chance for the hosts.

Pierre Joseph-Dubois goes on a mazy run into the area, with only a good challenge from Jay Gasson denying him.

The resulting corner is headed goalwards by Moses Swaibu and Louie Theophanous attempts to redirect the ball from close range - but Ashley Bayes does well to save.

4:43pm

That should have been the equaliser. Elliot Buchanan does well down the right and pulls the ball across the face of goal. It looks like a tap in for Max Noble at the far post but he is stretching and can only divert the ball wide.

4:41pm

Town almost find an instant response as good work from Manny Williams and Delano Sam-Yorke leads to a chance for Shaun McAuley, whose effort flies over.

4:39pm

GOAL - Bromley 1 Basingstoke Town 2 - Danny Waldren (pen) (72 min)

That's game on. Jay Gasson is penalised for handball and Waldren blasts the penalty down the middle to reduce the deficit to a single goal.

4:38pm

Delano Sam-Yorke is brought down right on the edge of the area but Jordace Holder-Spooner blasts the free-kick way over.

4:36pm

Delano Sam-Yorke beats three men on a powerful run down the right - but goalkeeper Joe Welch does well diving at his feet and makes the save.

4:29pm

Close to a third for Town there. Matt Warner crosses from deep and Delano Sam-Yorke gets up above the goalkeeper - but he can only head wide under pressure.

4:28pm

Reading have gone behind at Stoke - Robert Huth with the opening goal of the game.

4:25pm

Bromley are having a decent spell and a cross from the right flies right across the Town goal - but nobody is able to get a touch.

4:24pm

SUBSTITUTION - Basingstoke Town - Jordace Holder-Spooner on for Simon Dunn

Dunn is obviously feeling the ill-effects from his earlier knock and has to be replaced.

4:20pm

Shaun McAuley is given time and space to shoot from 25 yards. It's a decent hit but straight at home goalkeeper Joe Welch.

4:14pm

Ross Adams update. The big centre-back has been taken to hospital in an ambulance. Fingers crossed for him but it could be season over.

4:13pm

Bromley force the first corner of the second-half but Town get it away and break through Shaun McAuley. Sadly, his pass forces Manny Williams wide and his attempted cross clears the stand behind the goal.

4:11pm

KICK-OFF

Town get the second period under way.

4:11pm

SUBSTITUTION - Bromley - Elliot Buchanan on for Ian Daly

The hosts throw on a second striker before the start of the second-half.

4:09pm

The teams emerge for the second-half. Play was stopped for seven minutes because of the injury to Ross Adams.

4:06pm

Elsewhere, Matt Horne got the only try of the second-half as Basingstoke RFC beat Dover 22-0. Could be a crucial bonus point dropped.

Reading went into half-time goalless away at Stoke, while London Irish are holding Saracens 9-9 at the halfway stage of their game.

 

4:00pm

3:56pm

HALF-TIME - Bromley 0 Basingstoke Town 2

The injury to Ross Adams apart, that's a great first-half for Town. Two goals from the outstanding Simon Dunn and it's no more than they deserve.

Now it's just a case of going on to finish the job, which they weren't able to do on Tuesday.

3:56pm

Bromley create a decent chance down the right, a low ball in leading to a scramble - but Town smuggle it clear.

3:54pm

GOAL - Bromley 0 Basingstoke Town 2 - Simon Dunn (45 min)

A great team move ends with Manny Williams playing in Dunn and he finishes with style to claim his second goal of the game.

3:52pm

SUBSTITUTION - Bromley - Max Noble on for Aaron Rhule

3:52pm

Delano Sam-Yorke wins the ball on halfway and Town break with purpose, but the move peters out when Manny Williams fails to find Simon Dunn with a pass.

3:50pm

That's a tight offside call against Shaun McAuley, who would have been clean through. He may just have been in line.

3:48pm

Moses Swaibu is back on and another Delano Sam-Yorke run causes problems, but he just over-runs the ball and ends up being penalised for a foul.

3:45pm

Half-hearted appeals for a penalty as Delano Sam-Yorke goes down at the end of a strong run - but he went down easily.

Bromley defender Moses Swaibu remains down though, recieving treatment.

3:42pm

SUBSTITUTION - Basingstoke Town - Nathan Smart on for Ross Adams

3:42pm

Ross Adams is carried off on a stretcher. Nathan Smart will replace him, with Rob Rice moving across to centre-back.

Adams looked in agony as he was carried off, with his left leg in a splint.

3:40pm

3:40pm

Ross Adams is still down on the edge of the penalty area, being treated by members of the St John's Ambulance and both physios. It's a horrible scene.

3:37pm

Ross Adams makes a good block to stop Ian Daly getting a clear shot away - but he falls awkwardly.

His knee seemed to twist and it looks bad, with players from both sides immediately calling the physio on.

3:35pm

YELLOW CARD - Sanchez Ming - Bromley

Ming is being given a torrid time by Simon Dunn and he is booked for a late challenge on the youngster.

3:34pm

That's good play from Manny Williams to control a long ball forward just before it went out for a corner. His pull-back is well cut out but the resulting corner leads to a spell of pressure.

The ball drops to Jay Gasson on the penalty spot but he chooses to pass rather than shoot and the chance goes.

3:30pm

Ashley Bayes got away with one there. He came miles in an attempt to deal with a free-kick and ended up punching away at chest height.

3:28pm

Panic over. Simon Dunn is back on. He's been excellent so far.

3:28pm

Simon Dunn is down injured and recieving treatment. It would be a massive blow if Town were to lose him.

3:26pm

That looked dangerous for a moment but Rob Rice showed good pace to prevent Louie Theophanous getting on the end of a ball through.

3:24pm

The ball breaks to Simon Dunn on the edge of the area but he is off balance and fires well wide.

3:23pm

That's Bromley's first effort of the match, Ali Fuseini firing wide from distance. It had Ashley Bayes a little concerned mind.

3:19pm

Simon Dunn is fouled down the left and that's a great ball in from Wes Daly - but a good defensive header prevents a Town player getting on the end of it.

The resulting corner also causes problems, Bromley smuggling it behind, while the spell of pressure ends with Jay Gasson heading over.

3:14pm

YELLOW CARD - Jay Gasson - Basingstoke Town

An obvious yellow card as Gasson trips Ian Daly on halfway with Bromley looking to break.

3:13pm

Town are well on top, looking dangerous down both flanks.

3:06pm

GOAL - Bromley 0 Basingstoke Town 1 - Simon Dunn (4 min)

Town have started brightly and get an early reward.

Shaun McAuley shows good skill down the right before flicking the ball to Dunn and he has time to take a touch before firing home. The goalkeeper got a hand to it but was unable to keep the shot out.

3:04pm

Town have the first attack of the match but it ends with a wayward shot from Simon Dunn.

3:02pm

KICK-OFF

Bromley get the game under way.

3:02pm

'Stoke lead hosts Dover 15-0 at half-time.

3:00pm

Not sure what you've got against Manny Williams. He was excellent on Tuesday.

The teams emerge from the tunnel ahead of kick-off.

2:58pm

Freddie Gleadowe just got a second try for 'Stoke, making the score 15-0 down the road in Dover.
