Whistle goes. Canvey 2-0 Margate. Moments before CUrran put ball in net but offside flag was up

4:50pm

Canvey just trying to keep hold of ball now. Happy with this score

4:48pm

Into injury time now. No indication of how much given

4:46pm

Got to be honest, I don't think Sands was touched

4:45pm

Three minutes left and it is Canvey 2-0 Margate

4:43pm

Bull sent off. Feels hard done by. 

4:42pm

PENALTY TO CANVEY! Bull brings down Sands

4:42pm

Canvey's defence has been good all day and cut Margate out. Can they do it for a few more mins?

4:39pm

Free kick to Canvey. Chatting takes on left wing. GOAL! B-Edwards fires it into the net. 

After 81 minutes it is Canvey 1-0 Margate

4:38pm

Jefferson Louis fires a shot goalwards, but it is deflected away from goal. Amazingly the ball spins so much it stays in field and is cleared by Dumas

4:36pm

That chance for Canvey appears to have woken them from their slumber. Look more spritely now

4:34pm

Curran down just outside box. Not looking too good but seems to be getting back up and playing on

4:32pm

SO CLOSE FOR CANVEY! Finally they put few passes together and Sands outside of the boot shot crashes onto the crossbar

4:31pm

Canvey not linking up at all well. Been unable to sting four or five passes together in this half

4:29pm

Canvey make last sub with Strickland replacing Hallett. Curran moves upfront

4:27pm

Free kick to Margate after B-Edwards fouls Ademeno. Louis pings shot well over bar and out of stadium. Nearly reaches the sea wall!

4:25pm

Both sides cancelling each other out at the minute. Lots of ball stuck in the middle third. not all that exciting to be honest

4:24pm

Sheldon Sellears replaced by Harrison Chatting for Canvey

4:21pm

Canvey also forced to bring off Bartley after getting injured in tackle by STuart.  Alaile comes on

First chance of half for Canvey as Sellears finds Sands in box, but his shot is blocked by Stuart

4:16pm

Margate skipper Stuart booked for foul on Bartley

4:15pm

Margate looking the better team so far in the second half. Gulls struggling to keep ball for more than a couple of passes

4:14pm

Dangerous cross fired into Canvey box from left but it evades Louis' head

4:12pm

Good run by Bodkin who then sends a shot just wide of Canvey's goal

Curran wins ball fairly off Bodkin but ref blows for foul

East Thurrock still playing first half sue to 15 minute delay after assistant ref got injured. They are 1-0 up at Maidstone United..

 

 

3:50pm

Would say it is quite even here. Margate look bit better on ball but Gulls defence fending them off. Canvey creating more chances but not the final bit of quality required

3:47pm

Canvey 0-0 Margate

3:46pm

Flashpoint here as Nelson flies into challenge on Sellears. Yellow given by ref but players unhappy with that tackle. Was high. Lucky not to be red in my opinion

3:42pm

Free kick to Canvey. Sellears takes sending ball into box. Bartley gets header on it but it goes over. Had his back to goal, difficult chance

3:40pm

B-Edwards nearly runs Canvey into trouble by making hash of running with ball towards his own goal and Bodkin behind him, but Vickers does well to claim ball in the air

3:39pm

Clever work in corner byu Bartley to kick ball into Medley and win goal kick. Smart football

3:36pm

Free kick to Margate about 40 yards out. After few passes Medley hits shot but humphrey deflects out for corner. The corner itself does not go past front post and is cleared

3:34pm

Free kick to Canvey. Ball passed to Webb who cannot control shot and flies over bar

3:34pm

Nelson races through for Margte into Canvey box, but his pass to Louis misses the intended target. Ball eventually goes to Allen who hits a shot from 30 yards out wide

3:32pm

Bit of miscommunication in GUlls defence sees Bodkin nip in round back but Humphreys and Bartley recover well to see off danger

3:28pm

Halfway through this half and it must be said Margate look better on ball but Canvey defence is standing up to the challenge. GOing forward Gulls look bit unsettled but have create more chances

3:26pm

Sellears getting talking to from ref. THink the Gulls player said a little too much after he thought he had been fouled. Break in the game as Margate's Allen gets treatment

3:24pm

Corner to Margate. Rents takes. Bartley nods out of dangerzone though.

3:22pm

Another Canvey long ball sails aimlessly over Margate defence. Really have to do better than that

3:18pm

Margate break down other end and Sammoutis' long range effort is pushed wide by Vickers. Resulting corner sees goal-line scramble but ref blows for foul on Canvey

3:18pm

Nice work by Sellears dinking over top for Sands to get head onto ball. But Bull blocks shot. Good chance

3:15pm

Mistake by Beckles whose clearance slams straight into Sands. However the Canvey forward cannot find hallett with cross

3:14pm

Gulls skipper Humphrey calling for more pressure on the ball. He's got a tough task today marking Jefferson Louis who looks a wily old pro

3:13pm

Early on it does not seem, like it is clicking for Canvey down right wing. Particularly with B-Edwards and Webb. Not giving in form Curran much to work with

3:11pm

Great ball by Dumas into box but his GUlls team-mate Hallett is judged offside

3:11pm

Not a bad start by Margate who sit seven spots below Canvey in RPL table. Lots of possession and Gulls have given ball away a couplke of times already

3:08pm

Sellears gets chance eight minutes in for Canvey when he swivels round a defender and hits a shot on edge of box. Goes over though. Great ball by Carter to Sellears in that move

3:05pm

Free kick to Margate on right win deep in Gulls half. Rents' ball is so long it goes out for throw on left hand side

3:04pm

Both teams seem to be going for 4-4-2 formations. Standard

3:03pm

Gulls striker Jason Hallett feels he was grabbed by Margate player going for header but ref waves appeals away

3:02pm

Margate up in final third early on, but Wassmer's shot is weak and comfortable for Vickers to grab

3:00pm

2:58pm

When these two teams met earlier in the season the game finished 1-1. WIll it be another draw again or will someone pop up with a winner?

2:57pm

Sides out on pitch. Canvey in their traditional yellow and Margate blue and white hoops

2:55pm

Canvey and Margate players lining up in the tunnel about to go out onto pitch

2:54pm

In other news, Danny Heale is wearing shorts today. THat is how nice the weather is at Park Lane

2:53pm

Gulls boss Danny Heale said on twitter earlier he wants a reaction from his players today after losing their last two games following an unbeaten ten game run. Can he get one today?

2:46pm

Non-league football legend Jefferson Louis starts for Margate today. I remember him playing for Oxford United against Arsenal in the FA Cup years ago. He's about 38-years-old now

2:44pm

Been told Margate skipper Jamie Stuart got sent off here at Park Lane once for hitting his own team-mate!
