I'm struggling to get the video to appear on the site. Should be able to sort at some point, but right now, I'm going home.

Join me again on Tuesday, when Newport County visit the Soccer AM Stadium!

9:37pm

After a slow first half, Town did well after the break, with Macklin especially impressive. Argent took his goal well too. Plenty to think about.

Reaction to follow.

9:33pm

Hungerford Town 1-3 Basingstoke Town

9:33pm

90 - Nditi is outrageously skillful, beating one player twice. He's then hacked down. Possibly a sign of things to come if he carries on trying tricks.

9:30pm

88 - Good play from Flood, but his shot creeps wide of the post.

9:27pm

85 - That's an excellent challenge from Hollamby. Looked like a clear chance before he made a brave block.

9:26pm

The game is dying a bit of a death now. Been impressed by Town in the second half though.

9:18pm

76 - Hungerford Town 1-3 Basingstoke Town - Sam Argent

That's another nice goal. Macklin is involved twice in a really positive attack, the second time crossing for SAM ARGENT to power a header in at the far post.

These strikers are giving Bristow something to think about.

9:17pm

75 - The ball drops to Aaron Brown in the Town box, but Smart makes a good block.

9:13pm

70 - Mark Draycott finds space for a shot from about 25 yards. Not far wide.

9:11pm

65 - That's a fine save from Moore to deny Harry Goodyer an equaliser.

9:05pm

62 - Hungerford Town 1-2 Basingstoke Town - Lloyd Macklin

That's a sweet finish. LLOYD MACKLIN controls a pass that I'm not sure was meant for him on his thigh before finding the bottom corner with a powerful shot.

9:03pm

61 - Hungerford make a triple change.

9:01pm

58 - Basingstoke Town - Sam Argent, Josh Drew and Junior Strassa on for Julian Owusu, Simon Dunn and Andrew Jenkinson.

8:57pm

55 - That's a fine ball fro Nditi. Owusu could be in but his chest control lets him down.

8:54pm

51 - PENALTY MISSED

Jenkinson steps up to take the kick, but he drags it wide of the right-hand post.

8:53pm

50 - Basingstoke Town - Macklin is brought down by James Rushbury on the left side of the area and the referee points to the spot.

8:51pm

49 - Dunn is back on, and we're back under way.

8:50pm

47 - Dunn releases Nditi in the area, but there's nobody on hand to get on the end of his low cross. Dunn was caught late there too, and he's getting some treatment.

8:48pm

45 - Basingstoke Town - Lloyd Macklin, Adam Nditi and Shane Hollamby on for Liam Enver-Marum, Tom Bird and Kieran Maylen.

8:47pm

Hungerford get the second half under way.

8:45pm

Looks like we will see a few changes at the break, with some of the triallists given a chance to show what they can do.

8:37pm

Not a particularly good first-half display from Town. A bit off the pace, while Hungerford played some sharp stuff and deserved their goal.

8:35pm

Hungerford Town 1-1 Basingstoke Town

8:33pm

44 - A break in play after Smart is caught late, but he's okay to continue.

8:32pm

40 - Basingstoke Town - Chris Flood on for Manny Williams

Williams must have a knock and Flood, who signed on Tuesday, comes on in his place.

8:28pm

39 - Hungerford Town 1-1 Basingstoke Town - James Clark

That's a really nice goal, and no more than the hosts deserve.

Parson plays JAMES CLARK through after a quick attack and the striker gives Moore no chance with a powerful finish.

8:27pm

38 - Bird is released down the left, but his low cross is cut out before Enver-Marum can get on the end of it.

8:25pm

36 - Hungerford attack down the left, but Dean Stowe's shot is sliced out for a throw.

8:23pm

34 - Enver-Marum has a dip from a long-range free-kick. Another ball on the clubhouse roof.

8:22pm

33 - Another good Hungerford move, but it ends with a weak shot from Smith. They are playing some nice stuff. Look a good side.

8:18pm

29 - Jenkinson gives away a free-kick on the edge of the area and Josh Parsons has a shot, forcing Moore into a decent save.

8:17pm

28 - Town switch off for a throw and Ian Herring has time to shoot from range. Wide, but Town aren't playing very well here.

8:15pm

26 - Hungerford have been on top since the goal and James Rusbury fizzes the ball across the face of goal.

8:13pm

24 - Another chance for Smith, but he fires over from the edge of the area. A decent opening.

8:09pm

21 - Hungerford Town 0-1 Basingstoke Town - Manny Williams

That's a nice goal. Smart's ball down the right finds Owusu and he does well to beat his man before pulling the ball back for MANNY WILLIAMS on the penalty spot. 

He has time to take a touch and pick his spot, finding the top corner.

8:08pm

18 - McAuley's cross forces the first corner of the match. It's taken short to Bird but drops kindly for Dunn when he misses his kick.

His effort is well blocked, but the ball breaks for Enver-Marum, and that's a fine save to deny him.

8:06pm

17 - McAuley lets fly from distance, but that's onto the clubhouse roof.

8:05pm

16 - That's a decent cross from the Hungerford right, but Bird does enough at the far post to put the striker off.

8:02pm

14 - Owusu wins the ball high up the pitch, but his shot is blocked.

8:01pm

12 - Smart wins a 50-50 challenge against the home left-back, but his ball across goal is a poor one and cut out.

8:00pm

10 - Lee Smith shoots from distance. That's the first mistake Stuart Moore has made, the ball slipping though his hands, but he responds well to claim the loose ball.

7:58pm

9 - A simple one-two from a throw has Town in trouble, but Rice is on hand to clear the low ball in.

7:57pm

8 - The home goalkeeper flaps at a Bird free-kick into the box, but his defence clear the danger.

7:54pm

5 - Good play from Smart to get Williams in the hole between the home defence and midfield, but he cannot make the most of the opportunity.

7:53pm

4 - Hungerford have started at a frantic pace, pressing Town high up the park. Making it hard for the visitors to get their passing going.

7:52pm

3 - A long throw almost has Hungerford in, but Rice gets his head in to deal with the problem.

7:51pm

2 - The ground is really hard. The ball bobbled horribly in front of Jenkinson there.

7:48pm

Town get the game under way. They are shooting down the pronounced slope in the first half.

7:44pm

Here come the teams. In dribs and drabs.

7:43pm

For all you golf fans out there, Justin Rose ended day one of the Open on level par after an opening round of 72. He's six shots behind leader Rory McIlroy.

7:39pm

Town have gone back into the changing rooms to make their final preparations.

7:30pm

There's a bit of a pattern developing with the team selections. 

It's been a midfield diamond for all four games. Nathan Smart, Tom Bird and Robbie Rice have started every game they have been available, as have Andrew Jenkinson, Simon Dunn and Manny Williams in midfield, but Soares and McAuley have yet to play together.

In attack, Enver-Marum has been partnered by a different player in most games, suggesting Town are looking for a foil. It's Owusu's turn tonight.

7:27pm

LINE-UP

Basingstoke Town: Moore, Smart, Bird, Jenkinson, Rice, Maylen, Dunn, McAuley, Enver-Marum, Owusu, Williams. Subs: Hollamby, Flood, Drew, Argent, Macklin, Nditi, Strassa.

7:23pm

TEAM NEWS

Three changes to the team that started against Reading on Tuesday. Kieran Maylen, Shaun McAuley and Julian Owusu come in for Romeo Agebane, Louie Soares and Sam Argent.

Argent drops to the bench, but Agebane isn't here. Soares joins Jay Gasson on the injury list.

Ryan Scott isn't here again, but I'm informed that is due to work commitments rather than something else.

7:03pm

Hungerford only just missed out on the play-offs in the Southern Premier League last year. Could be a good test for Town.

6:57pm

It's a sunny, warm evening in Hungerford. The signal's not so good though, may be a bit in and out. Keep your fingers crossed.

6:47pm

Good evening and welcome to live text commentary from Basingstoke Town's pre-season trip to Hungerford Town.
