9:43pm

A pretty terrible game, especially in the second half, and it gets the result it deserved. Town created some chances in the first half but were denied by some good saves by the home goalkeeper.

Reaction to follow.

9:37pm

Hayes and Yeading 0-0 Basingstoke Town

9:34pm

90 - Hayes and Yeading United - Chimdi Akubuine on for Niall McManus

9:34pm

90 - Half-chance for Musunga, but it's well wide. Four minutes of added time to play.

9:33pm

89 - McAuley gets free down the left and his low ball in causes problems, with Williams' shot blocked before the hosts clear.

9:29pm

86 - Harriott lets fly from distance but it's well wide of the Town goal.

9:27pm

84 - Liam Enver-Marum - Basingstoke Town

Enver-Marum goes down in the area and is booked for diving.

9:26pm

83 - The ball drops to Ladapo on the edge of the area. Another shooting opportunity blasted miles over by the striker.

9:25pm

82 - There are two balls on the pitch. Jaimez-Ruiz gets one and boots it out of the ground. Phil Babb looks on in amazement.

9:23pm

80 - Williams wins a free-kick. He gets permission to take it quickly, while Hayes are setting up their wall, but clips the ball over the crossbar.

9:21pm

78 - Hayes and Yeading United - Andrew Musunga on for Samir Bihmoutine 

Bihmoutine has picked up a knock and has to be replaced.

9:19pm

76 - That's a nice pass from Johnson-Schuster to release Smart down the right but his driven cross goes straight out for a goal-kick.

9:16pm

73 - Basingstoke Town - Manny Williams on for Louie Soares

An attacking change as Town switch to 4-3-3.

9:15pm

73 - Space for Jenkinson to shoot from 25 yards, but his low shot goes wide.

9:14pm

72 - Hayes and Yeading United - Luke Williams on for Jack Mills

9:12pm

70 - Ladapo is almost in but Cox's pass is too heavy for him. A decent opening.

9:12pm

Not a lot happening at the moment. Will we get some drama before the end?

9:07pm

64 - Adam Green - Basingstoke Town

Another silly booking as Green is carded for throwing the ball away after conceding a throw following a heavy touch.

9:03pm

59 - A low ball in from Soares causes chaos in the Hayes area. The ball drops for McAuley, who fires in a powerful shot, bringing an excellent reaction save out of Jaimez-Ruiz. Top drawer.

9:01pm

58 - Hayes are looking to play a bit more at the moment and a nice move sees Cox head over from the edge of the area.

8:59pm

56 - Town work the ball from right to left, creating a shooting chance for Green. The angle is against him and while Jaimez-Ruiz fails to hold his low shot, he gathers at the second attempt.

8:56pm

53 - Ladapo beats Rice for pace and power down the left channel. He probably could have gone down for a penalty but stays on his feet, only to blast wastefully over the crossbar.

8:52pm

Jason Bristow is imploring his players to get hold of the ball and show more quality. He's down in front of me and really getting into them.

8:50pm

47 - That's a good turn from Ladapo on the edge of the Town area. The shot is pretty good too. Plenty of power and it had Wells worried as it whistled just over the crossbar.

8:48pm

Town get the second half started.

8:47pm

The players are back out for the second half. Doesn't look like there will be any changes.

8:45pm

Not sure Mr Keown will be enjoying it. Wouldn't be surprised if he has already left.

8:43pm

It's getting decidely chilly. I'm regretting my lack of a coat.

8:39pm

Doesn't look good for Ray. He can barely put any weight on his left leg at the moment. Could be an ankle problem. Can't see him playing again for a couple of weeks.

8:37pm

Not a great first half but Town will feel they should be ahead. It was very even but they created more opportunities to open the scoring.

8:34pm

Hayes and Yeading United 0-0 Basingstoke Town

8:33pm

45+2 - A foul by Shaun McAuley gives Hayes a dangerous free-kick but Jack Mills can only fire over.

8:31pm

45 - Another dangerous moment as the ball bobbles around on the edge of the Town area, but the visitors manage to smuggle it clear.

8:29pm

43 - Gasson lets a high ball bounce but Rice digs him out of trouble. That looked dangerous for a second.

8:25pm

38 - Ben Brown - Hayes and Yeading United

It was Gerring, rather than Brown, who was booked earlier, but Brown is shown a yellow card now following a late challenge on Green.

8:22pm

36 - Close again for the visitors. Jenkinson cuts in from the right and lets fly with a fine curling shot, that Jaimez-Ruiz just about manages to push over the crossbar.

8:20pm

34 - Town should be ahead. The ball drops to Bignall on the six-yard line after bouncing around in the area, but he is off balance and shoots wide.

8:19pm

32 - Basingstoke Town - Marcus Johnson-Schuster on for David Ray

That's a blow for Town as Ray has to leave the field after suffering an injury.

With no Adams on the bench, Johnson-Schuster goes to right-back, with Robbie Rice moving in alongside Gasson in the centre of defence.

Let's hope that doesn't keep Ray out for too long. He's a massive player for Town these days.

8:16pm

30 - Bignall lets fly from the left corner of the area but it's straight at the Hayes goalkeeper.

8:14pm

28 - Ladapo is a handful. He outmuscles Ray down the right channel but fires wide of the near post. A poor finish.

8:13pm

27 - Ladapo beats Gasson down the Hayes left but his cross is too high for Cox, who can only glance wide.

8:11pm

26 - Bignall wins a dangerous free-kick in a central area no more that 22 yards out. Adam Green goes for placement but sees his shot float wide.

8:10pm

24 - Ben Gerring - Hayes and Yeading United

Gerring needlessly kicks the ball away to stop Town taking a quick throw and picks up a silly booking.

8:05pm

19 - Town struggle to clear the resulting throw as well - and that's a big chance. The ball drops for Bihmoutine about 10 yards out, but he blasts miles over the crossbar.

8:04pm

19 - A couple of half-chances for the hosts as Town fail to clear their lines. Marty Harriott eventually gets a shot in, but Gasson blocks.

8:02pm

16 - Louie Soares smashes an excellent effort into the top corner from the edge of the area. Sadly, the whistle had already gone.

8:01pm

15 - A cross comes in from the right and Hayes' Pat Cox gets up to meet it, but he can only head wide.

It's all tempo and no quality from both sides so far.

7:57pm

11 - Town go close again through Enver-Marum from a corner, but his header is too close to the Hayes goalkeeper.

7:56pm

10 - So close to the opening goal for the visitors.

Bignall does well to hold the ball up 30 yards from goal before feeding Nathan Smart down the right. His low cross finds Enver-Marum, but his effort is well saved by Jaimez-Ruiz.

7:54pm

I forgot to mention it earlier, but Hayes are managed by former Coventry, Liverpool and Ireland defender Phil Babb.

He must be pretty happy with the way things are going at the moment.

7:52pm

It's been a slow start from Town, who have been unable to get the ball down and pass it around so far. Hayes are a very direct side and have penned the visitors back a bit so far.

7:50pm

4 - Freddie Ladapo shoots from the edge of the Town area but Gasson makes the block.

7:47pm

2 - Samir Bihmoutine of Hayes has the first shot of the match but it's straight at Louis Wells.

7:45pm

Hayes get the game under way. Town are shooting towards the large stand, which is closed tonight, in the first half.

7:42pm

The teams make their way out for the start of the match.

7:37pm

The hosts are in proper trouble near the foot of the table, with only goal difference keeping them out of the relegation zone.

Town sit 12th and cannot move up, no matter what the result tonight.

7:33pm

Don't know much about the Hayes team.

Dean Inman is a good defender who has been around a while, possibly playing for Hampton and Richmond when they were up near the top of the division.

The only other player I can tell you anything about is goalkeeper Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz, who used to play for Aldershot.

7:31pm

That's an attacking Town bench. Three strikers and no room for Ross Adams, a centre back who would walk into most first teams in this league. 

Can't argue with the form of Jay Gasson and David Ray though.

7:26pm

7:22pm

I'll let you have the teams in full when I'm supplied with a team-sheet.

It's quite a nice evening in Woking, Hayes' temporary home. However, I'm not expecting a big crowd.

The pitch isn't in great shape, with several bare patches. Possibly one of the reasons why Hayes won't be playing here next season.

7:11pm

TEAM NEWS

Just one change for Town, with Andrew Jenkinson coming in for the suspended Wes Daly in the middle of the park.

Liam Enver-Marum and Nicholas Bignall continue in attack.
