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

4:16pm

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

4:16pm

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

4:14pm

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

4:12pm

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

4:10pm

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

4:08pm

No changes made by either side at half time

4:06pm

Second half kicks off

4:04pm

Players coming back onto pitch

4:04pm

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

4:01pm

Hampton 0-0 Billericay

Harrow 1-0 Canvey Island

Have not heard from Basildon United or Southend Manor

3:54pm

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

3:48pm

Half time 1-0 to Concord

3:47pm

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

3:46pm

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

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

3:41pm

Five minutes left in this half. Been scrappy

3:40pm

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

3:39pm

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

3:37pm

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

3:33pm

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

3:31pm

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

3:29pm

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

3:26pm

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

3:22pm

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

3:21pm

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

3:20pm

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

3:19pm

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

3:15pm

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

3:14pm

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

3:12pm

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

3:10pm

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

3:09pm

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

3:08pm

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

3:07pm

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

3:05pm

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

3:04pm

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

3:02pm

Here we go

2:58pm

Concord and WSM coming out onto pitch now

2:56pm

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.

2:55pm

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

2:53pm

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. 

2:48pm

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

2:47pm
