Great defensive display by Concord today. Good win for them


Full time: Concord 2-0 WSM


Four minutes added on time. Should be no problem for Concord


HOW'D HE MISS THAT! Stokes scoops ball over from yard out after Banton makes immediate impact on left wing. STokes had goal gaping too


Concord make last sub with Banton coming on for Taaffe

Corner for WSM safely nodded out by Easterford. Concord defence has been solid in this match


Concord replace Gardner with Rees


Free kick near Concord box for WSM. Grubb effort is on target but Butler roduces good save


Kington tries slamming free kick from about 25 yards out goalbound, just like Roberto Carlos, but effort sails wide


Clever free kick from Collins on edge of box to Taffe with a short pass into box, but shot goes over


Jamie Laird booked for pulling down Gardner


WSM get into final third but Grubb on left steers cross over and wide


Concord make first sub. Cawley off for Stokes


Ogilvie tries to hook a shot in, but the linesmans flag is up for offside


Concord still looking fresh. No subs yet


Free kick to COncord close to WSM box. Collins sends into box. But Irish gets ball


Double WSM sub. Ingram and Ash replace Fiddes and Walker


Not sure why WSM are not targeting balls towards their big centre forward Hemmings. Just need couple of guys off him to work chances


Collins puts Taaffe through again but this time he's offside


Collins slices ball out to Taaffe on left wing. He cuts back into box but cannot get his effort on target

WSM right back Fiddes is put through in box but he can only send a shot wide


Few of the Concord subs warming up now. 


Ogilvie tries racing onto a long ball but Irish just beats him to it and clears for WSM


Lampe and Esterford working well in central defence for Concord today. Winning every header so far


As you would expect, WSM are going far more direct now


Great challenge by WSM captain J Laird stops a rampeding Taaffe in his tracks as he legs it into the penalty area. Bobby Moore like that tackle


Free kick to Concord. Collins tries to find Cawley but the pass is too long. Goal kick to WSM


Despite being another goal in front, Concord are not letting their guard down and they are still keeping the pressure on WSM


GOAL! Concord get a second. Nice work by Gardner to get ball in from right. Irish spills and Cawley is on hand to tap in.

After 49 minutes it is Concord 2-0 WSM


No changes made by either side at half time


Second half kicks off


Players coming back onto pitch


Wondering when Concord will make their changes in second half. Players must be very tired after recent spell of matches. Also another game aweay at Basingstoke on Tuesday evening to consider. SUre they would love a second goal early on in second half to give more of a cushion


Other half time scores in south Essex:

Hampton 0-0 Billericay

Harrow 1-0 Canvey Island

East Thurrock 3-0 Hendon

Sporting Bengal 1-2 Great Wakering

Hullbridge 0-0 Takeley

Have not heard from Basildon United or Southend Manor


Scrappy half of football. WSM looking to pass around, but Concord have denied them space. Not many chances but a lovely move right at the end of the half to give lead to Concord


Half time 1-0 to Concord


GOAL! Concord take lead. Beachboys win ball on centre spot, Taaffe shows great control to get pass away to Collins who runs in on goal and slides in.

After 45 minutes it is Concord 1-0 WSM


Not long before half time. DOn't think they'll be much injury time


Chance for Concord. Diallo gives ball away in middle. Gardner ges pass into box but is cleared only to Miles who sends a edge of the area shot just over


Chance for Concord. Diallo gives ball away in middle. Gardner ges pass into box but is cleared only to Miles who sends a edge of the area shot just over


Corner to Concord. Collins takes. Pushing in area though and free kick goes to WSM


Five minutes left in this half. Been scrappy


Great work by Ogilvie to win ball off Trowbridge. He gives ball to Gardner but his cross is overcooked


Corner to Concord. Collins takes. Punched out by a flying Irish. Another corner. Collins takes again. Short to Ogilvie, worked back to Collins but his croiss is cleared


WSM content with playing ball at back. Interesting ploy, but opponents are not pressing them there. 


Concord think they're in with three on one, but offside flag is up on Ogilvie. Beachbioys unhappy as ball came off Walker of WSM, but Ogilvie was offside in first pass


WSM have switched to a 3-5-2 formation. Ball pinged crossfield to Walker but he's judged offside. He is so unhappy with that decision he swears loudly


Big penalty appeal for WSM waved away. Trowbridge upended  by Lampe but Carl Fitch says no foul


About half way through the first half, I'd say WSM look better on ball, but Concord are pressing hard giving little space to work with


For the record, WSM striker Chas Hemmings is HUGE! I'm 6"4 and I wouldn't want to make him unhappy


Collins launches ball into box but it has a little too much mustard on for Easterford and it rolls out for goal kick


Free kick to Concord, just inside WSM half. Chance for ball into box


Game is opening up. WSM putting some nice passing moves together but Concord not overawed here


WSM go down the other end and have a chance as Kington hits a sweet shot but it is deflected just wide for a corner. Gregson then heads ball from corner over


Cawley gets first chance when Taaffe pulls ball into box and his strike partner hits half volley onto top of bar


Free kick to Concord halfway into WSM half. Collins takes but is knocked out by Gregson. Even first ten minutes here


The following corner goes straight into six yard box but Butler is fouled


Corner to WSM, wearing white today. Grubb takes it short, neat footwork and passing ends up with ball being piledrived in but cleared for another corner


Good work by Gardner to get ball in WSM box but it is cleared before Cawley can get a shot away


Free kick to WSM  on right wing. Grubb takes. Flicks off WSM head but Butler collects


For those interested, Taaffe and Cawley are the guys upfront for the hosts


Beachboys lining up 4-4-1-1. WSM appear to be doing with the stand 4-4-2


Here we go


Concord and WSM coming out onto pitch now


Form going into this match for Concord is decent, other than Thursday night's loss. They have won five of their last eight in all competitions.

WSM in their last six have won four and lost two.


Interestingly enough, Concord and WSM have scored the same amount of goals in the league this season with 42 each. THe Beachboys have played three less matches though


Along with this blog, I'm also doing updates on Twitter. TO follow me on there, find me and follow @GeorgeNewsSport


When these two sides met earlier in the year, WSM won 5-0. That was on October 19. Three of the goalscorers, Dale Grubb, Alec Fiddes and Nabi Diallo start for them today. 


WSM manager Craig Laird has included his two sons Jamie and Callum in the visitor's starting XI


So there are six changes made to the Concord starting line-up today. Not surprise after big loss on Thursday and they have played a lot of games recently


WSM line-up: Irish, Fiddes, Walker, Trowbridge, J Laird (c), Gregson, Grubb, Diallo, Hemmings, Kington, C Laird.

Subs: Knowles, Ingram, Camper, Ash, Purnell


Concord starting line-up: Butler, Gordon, GLozier (c), Miles, Easterford, Lampe, Cawley, Gardner, Ogilvie, Collins, Taaffe.

Subs: KIng, Rees, Stokes, Banton, Bowles


Hello. Welcome to the Aspect Arena where Concord welcome WSM today. It is 10th vs 8th and shoULD BE A GOOD GAME.
