FULL-TIME - Hayes and Yeading United 2 Basingstoke Town 1

Another game Town should not have lost. They wasted some good opportunities in the first-half and were made to pay for some poor defending after the break.

See Thursday's Gazette for a full report and all of the reaction to tonight's game.

9:37pm

YELLOW CARD - Tim Sills - Basingstoke Town

That's a late challenge from Sills and the striker gets a deserved yellow card.

9:34pm

GOAL - Hayes and Yeading United 2 Basingstoke Town 1 - Tom Collins (89 min)

Another poor goal to concede. Calum Butcher's deep cross from the right should be dealt with but two Town players go for it and Jay Gasson's header does not clear the area.

It's a good finish from Collins, who curls the ball beyond Ashley Bayes and in at the far post.

9:30pm

Ashley Bayes is in action again, pushing Tom Cadmore's piledriver from distance over the crossbar.

9:30pm

Another great save from Ashley Bayes after the ball breaks to Josh Ekim on the edge of the area. His low shot looks to be heading into the corner but Bayes somehow gets a hand to it, pushing it up in the air, with the defence smuggling it behind.

9:24pm

SUBSTITUTION - Josh Ekim on for Luke Williams

9:22pm

Wes Daly finds Delano Sam-Yorke with a quick free-kick and the ball breaks for Shaun McAuley, whose low shot takes a deflection and has to be saved by the Hayes goalkeeper.

9:20pm

Not far away from Hayes' John Goddard, whose low effort from just outside the area has Ashley Bayes worried as it zips wide.

9:17pm

Delano Sam-Yorke works space to shoot on the edge of the area and it takes a diving save from Brandon Hall to keep the ball out.

9:15pm

SUBSTITUTION - Hayes and Yeading United - Jerome Anderson on for Mark Bentley

9:13pm

SUBSTITUTION - Basingstoke Town - Tim Sills on for Manny Williams

9:09pm

GOAL - Hayes and Yeading United 1 Basingstoke Town 1 - Delano Sam-Yorke (65 min)

Stuart Lake plays Sam-Yorke in down the left channel and the striker does brilliantly, outstripping Calum Butcher before smashing a low left-foot shot beyond Brandon Hall from a narrow angle.

That was a far more difficult opportunity than either of the two he failed to take in the first-half.

9:03pm

A great chance for Rob Rice from a corner. The defender gets up well to meet it but heads over the crossbar.

8:59pm

GOAL - Hayes and Yeading 1 Basingstoke Town 0 - Alasanne N'Diaye (54 min)

That's a terrible goal to concede. Town had several chances to clear that, but kept making the situation worse by slicing across their own goal.

Even the shot wasn't clean, N'Diaye shooting from the penalty spot and the ball coming off Jay Gasson and in off the post, rolling along the line before agonisingly creeping over.

8:56pm

A close shave for Town there as Alasanne N'Diaye gets in down the right and fizzes in a low cross. Rob Rice does just enough to take the ball away from Tom Collins and out for a corner.

8:50pm

KICK-OFF

Basingstoke get the second period underway. Neither side has made any changes at the break.

8:48pm

The teams are out for the second-half.

1st half has been ok but not the for the 1st time this season our finishing has been poor i feel we could be leading but i also feel we could be losing too

Jason needs to sort something out and calm the players down with shooting chances

8:34pm

HALF-TIME - Hayes and Yeading 0 Basingstoke Town 0

The pitch has been the winner, stopping either side playing much football. There's been a lot of long balls forward.

Both sides have had chances. Hayes really should have scored a couple of times, while Town haven't made the most of several one-on-ones.

8:32pm

There will be three added minutes at the end of the half.

8:31pm

Manny Williams is given time and space on the edge of the area but his shot is weak and poses few problems.

8:29pm

Another big chance for Delano Sam-Yorke, who races past a defender to get on the end of Matt Warner's long clearance. Again the finish is not great though, laking power and allowing Hayes' Brandon Hall to save with his feet.

8:26pm

YELLOW CARD - Rob Rice - Basingstoke Town

Hayes break from the corner and Rice effectively takes a yellow to stop John Bennett breaking through.

The resulting free-kick finds Mark Bentley in a decent area but he can only head wide.

8:25pm

Town cause problems from a corner, with Jay Gasson getting up at the far post to head across goal. It falls to Stuart Lake but at an awkward height and the hosts clear.

8:22pm

YELLOW CARD - Tom Cadmore - Hayes and Yeading United

Manny Williams turns the defender, who pulls him back to prevent him running though.

Matt Warner shoots from the free-kick but the goalkeeper is never worried as it goes wide.

8:18pm

That's a great save from Town's Ashley Bayes, who dives to his right to acrobatically push John Goddard's curling effort around the post.

8:16pm

Another big chance for Alasanne N'Diaye as Town fail to deal with a cross. The ball falls to the feet of the striker on the six-yard line and it takes a decent block from Rob Rice to stop him scoring.

8:14pm

Manny Williams looks set to run through but the offside flag goes up. It was against Shaun McAuley, who slipped and did not touch the ball - and Town are livid.

8:11pm

7:46pm Tue 12 Feb 13

Matt1991 says

Unfortunately this is my 1st game that i could of gone too but decided not to i feared it being called off

Need another decent result tonight to follow up from Bromley

hope we can bag something tonight come on Stoke

8:11pm

Hayes break straight up to the other end and miss a sitter. It's a great cross from Luke Williams and Alasanne N'Diaye is unmarked inside the six-yard box, in the middle of the goal. I would have fancied myself to score that but the big striker somehow heads wide.

8:09pm

That's a big opportunity wasted for Town. Delano Sam-Yorke does brilliantly to burst into the area but they then overplay and the chance goes.

8:08pm

Wes Daly's free-kick finds Jay Gasson, who gets up well but can only head wide of the Hayes goal.

8:03pm

Decent little spell for Town there, with Manny Williams causing some problems - but the final ball is just lacking.

7:56pm

A terrible attempt at a headed clearance from Town's Jay Gasson and a couple of lucky bounces lead to a chance for Luke Williams, but Ashley Bayes is able to push his shot over the crossbar.

7:55pm

That's a real chance for Town's Delano Sam-Yorke. He manages to wriggle past a couple of challenges in the area and has just goalkeeper Brendon Hall to beat. The 'keeper spreads himself well and Sam-Yorke's effort hits him on the chest and goes behind for a corner.

The flag-kick is pulled back to Wes Daly, whose curling effort is not too far wide.

7:52pm

Another powerful run from Tom Collins sets up Luke Williams for a shot but it's easy for Town goalkeeper Ashley Bayes. The hosts have made a good start.

7:49pm

Alasanne N'Diaye does well to put Tom Collins in down the channel. He runs at the Town defence and it takes a good challenge from Jay Gasson to stop him, with Hayes' claims for a penalty rightly waved away. He got the ball.

7:46pm

KICK-OFF

Hayes get the game started. It's a tiny crowd in a pretty big ground.

7:45pm

You Could Be Mine by Guns 'n' Roses comes on the tannoy - top pre-match tune.

7:43pm

The pitch does not look in great shape, with a couple of sticky patches. There was a snow shower as I arrived, but that seems to have stopped now.

7:35pm

TEAM NEWS

Town make just one change to the starting line-up that beat Bromley on Saturday, the injured Ross Adams being replaced by Nathan Smart. He is likely to slot in at right-back, with Rob Rice moving to the centre of defence.

Manny Williams keeps his place to play against the side he joined Town from in December, so Tim Sills has to settle for a place on the bench.

David Ray, who re-signed for the club on a non-contract basis today, is also on the bench.

There are not really any well-known names in the Hayes and Yeading team - but Pele is on the bench!

Alasanne N'Diaye was bound to score tonight we have given him too many chances and he finally bags a deserved goal not happy to be 1-0 down

i would happily settle for a point on a cold winter night on what seems like a poor pitch
