LIVE - Basingstoke Town v Weymouth
This live event has finished
FULL-TIME - Basingstoke Town 3 (Sills 37, Adams 45+1, McNish 90+1) Weymouth 1 (Joyce 17)
A game that should have been more comfortable than it was for the hosts. They were the better side throughout but were under some pressure towards the end.
See The Monday Gazette for a full report and all of the reaction.
SUBSTITUTION - Basingstoke Town - Stefan Brown on for Tim Sills
GOAL - Basingstoke Town 3 (McNish 90+1) Weymouth 1
That should mean the game is safe. Delano Sam-Yorke does brilliantly down the right before getting his head up and pulling the ball back for Callum McNish, who needs two bites at the cherry to score a debut goal.
There will be three minutes of stoppage time at the end of the game.
SUBSTITUTION - Basingstoke Town - Nathan Campbell on for Shaun McAuley
Shaun McAuley's curling effort from the edge of the area is comfortably saved and held by Simon Evans.
YELLOW CARD - Weymouth - Dan Smith
Smith is booked for dissent but Weymouth are throwing the kitchen sink at this.
DISALLOWED GOAL - Weymouth
That's a close escape for the hosts. Craig Duff stabs the ball beyond Ashley Bayes from close range after an attack down the left but is ruled offside.
That's a great chance to sew up the game wasted. A great move down the right involving Tim Sills and Delano Sam-Yorke leads to a shooting chance for Callum McNish. His low effort is saved by Simon Evans and it looks a simple chance for Wes Daly on the rebound - but he blasts over the unguarded net.
Delano Sam-Yorke almost scores with his first involvement. Shaun McAuley breaks and plays a great ball to Sam-Yorke, who beats a defender for pace before smashing a shot across the face of goal.
SUBSTITUTION - Basingstoke Town - Delano Sam-Yorke on for Jordace Holder-Spooner
SUBSTITUTION - Weymouth - Mark Ford on for Lewis Clarke
YELLOW CARD - Weymouth - Danny Clay
Clay is robbed by Shaun McAuley in midfield and cynically brings the Town man down, earning himself a booking.
Tim Sills almost puts Shaun McAuley in the clear - but the 'keeper comes out to save at his feet.
BASINGSTOKE HIT THE CROSSBAR
Jordace Holder-Spooner wins a free-kick in a central area five yards outside the area and takes the kick himself. The goalkeeper is a mere spectator as the ball flies over the wall and clatters into the crossbar.
So close to a brilliant goal, which is no more than Holder-Spooner deserves after a great performance today.
Town have a good spell, spending a couple of minutes camped deep in the Weymouth half - but nothing comes of it.
At the other end, a cross from the left only just clears a Weymouth striker.
That's another incisive move from the hosts, with Jordace Holder-Spooner playing Matt Warner in down the left channel. His low shot is not far wide of the far post, with Shaun McAuley almost getting a vital touch, but I think he may have been offside.
Another good cross from Matt Warner finds Tim Sills, whose header may have been going wide but has Simon Evans scrambling across his goal.
That's a great counter-attack by the hosts. Shaun McAuley turns away from trouble deep inside his own half before releasing Jordace Holder-Spooner. He makes ground before making the return pass, with McAuley's drive from the edge of the area tipped over the crossbar by Simon Evans.
Ross Adams nearly has his second of the game when the resulting corner is headed back across goal by Tim Sills, but the defender's header is blocked.
Out with the old man at the basingstoke game! #facup— @Caseyy171 22 September 2012
More good play by Jordace Holder-Spooner almost creates a chance for Tim Sills, with Nathan Smart then heading over the crossbar.
Town get us under way in the second half. No changes for either side at the break.
HALF-TIME - Basingstoke Town 2 Weymouth 1
A good comeback at the end of the half gives Town a lead they probably deserve at the break. They'll be looking to control things a bit more in the second half.
To be fair, you didn't miss much apart from the first goal while I was having technical difficulties.
Tim Sills had a couple of chances, seeing a near post header from a corner hacked away from under his own crossbar by Alex Jeannin and then producing a good turn and shot that flashed across goal.
The only other thing to note was a booking for Callum McNish following a trip in midfield in the 43rd minute.
GOAL - Basingstoke Town 2 (Adams 45+1) Weymouth 1
And now they are ahead! It's a somewhat scrambled effort from a corner, with Jay Gasson's header being blocked and the rebound falling to centre-back partner Ross Adams, who missed his kick a couple of times before forcing the ball home.
GOAL - Basingstoke Town 1 (Sills 37) Weymouth 1
I've had some gremlins in the system so we're a bit behind. Apologies.
The most importent news is that Town are level. Matt Warner cut back on to his right foot to cross for Tim Sills to send a looping header over goalkeeper Simon Evans and into the net.
GOAL - Basingstoke Town 0 Weymouth 1 (Joyce 17)
Good interplay on the edge of the area between Dan Smith and Matt Groves leads to the latter getting to the by-line - and his pull-back is slotted home by BEN JOYCE.
A bit too easy from a Town point of view and a shame because they had made a decent start.
A couple more half-chances for the hosts. Tim Sills almost gets in behind but his first touch takes the ball too close to Weymouth 'keeper Simon Evans, before Jordace Holder-Spooner collects Shaun McAuley's through-ball but sees his effort blocked.
That's a good break down the left by Town's Jordace Holder-Spooner, who beats a couple of men before pulling the ball back. Weymouth just about smuggle it clear.
The referee breaks up a Weymouth move by getting in Dan Smith's way and Nathan Smart is away down the right - but his cross is just too high for Tim Sills, who had peeled to the far post.
Weymouth get the game started. They are shooting towards the Clubhouse End in the first half.
The teams are out for kick-off on a sunny afternoon in north Hampshire.

Weymouth may play their football in the Southern League Premier, a level below Basingstoke, but this looks a tricky tie on paper.
