That's the final whistle and Halesowen suffer their first defeat in 15 games and see their unbeaten start to the season ended.


Blyth could have sealed it there. Tilt clears the ball off the line after Dales fired it in.


90 +2 - Hull rises to meet a Tonks corner but his powerful header is push away from danger by keeper Jeffries.


90 - Disappointing for Halesowen after they had worked so hard to get back in the match.


Maguire flicked the ball on and Hutchinson made now mistake with a drilled finish past Sargeant just as the Yeltz had got back into the contest.


86 - Hutchinson fires Blyth back into the lead


Thompson-Brown kept the ball alive after Christie had flicked on a long ball into the box. Brown lifted it over the advancing keeper for Tilt to head into an unguarded net.



84 - Tilt gets the equaliser for Halesowen!


83- Blyth could have won it. trickery from Maguire out wide sees him lay it off for Ian Watson but he cuts across his effort and it goes wide of the post.


80 - the visitors aren't offering much in attack now as the look to defend their lead. The Yeltz are searching for a leveller but the Blyth rearguard is holding out well as it stands.


75 - Joe Hull rises to powerfully meet at Tom Tonks long throw but he can't keep it down.


It's scrappy at the moment but Hales continue to push forward. They are having better spell at the moment but need to somehow take a chance.


71 - Hales can't find a touch to Mackenzie's teasing ball from out wide. Three players tried to make contact but it evaded them all.


69 - Thompson-Brown comes on for Bragoli as Hales chace an equaliser.


62- Halesowen trying to get back in the game. Turner wastes a great chance when he fires his effort straight at the Blyth keeper Jeffries.


61 - Wearmouth could have doubled the away side's advantage. He was free at the far post from a corner but couldn't connect.


59 - Blyth continue to look more dangerous as they come forward. This time Maguire stings the hands of Sargeant who tips it over his bar.

The corner is defended by Halesowen.


58 - The Yeltz look a little short of ideas at the moment. they are mainly looking for quick balls over the top for Haseley.



50 - Chance for Halesowen to draw level is wasted by Haseley.

His good running saw him get in behind the Blyth defence, but he hit is effort high and wide with the keeper to beat.


Blyth start the second half


Hales started well but couldn't take advantage of their early pressure.

Blyth then made their pressure count at the end of the half.


That's the end of the first half.


Forde leaves the pitch and is replaced by Mackenzie.


Dale did well down the right and crossed for Maguire to tap in.


44 - Maguire finds the net for Blyth.


43 - Blyth are finishing the stronger here.


Jordan Watson goes in the book for a challenge on Christie as the Yeltz look to break.


40 - Maguire works Sargeant after the ball breaks to him in the box. He then has another effort tipped round the post.

Good spell for the visitors at the end of the alf.


Blyth are having more joy coming forward but both teams are finding it hard to create any real openings at present. Both have been limited to half chances so far.


35 - Chance to Blyth. Hawkins crosses into the middle but Wearmouth scuffs his effort into the hands of keeper Sargeant.


28 - Chance to the Yeltz. How did that stay out? Tilt flicks on Tonks' corner but Hull some how scoops an effort over the bar from close range at the far post.


23 - Both sides are cancelling each other out at the moment after Hales failed to build on their bright start.


20 - A slight spell of Blyth possession As they start to get a foothold in the game.


Blyth's Ian Watson hits a long range effort that doesn't trouble Sargeant.


16 - Halesowen break well and Haseley hits a good effort that is saved by the keeper down low.


14 - Peter Till is replaced Elliott Turner.


10 - A slight moment of danger from the visitors. Hooks plays a ball over the top for Maguire but his ball into the box is defended by Halesowen.


The Yeltz will be pleased with their start today. They have had more of the ball and have already created a few half chances.


7 - Good chance to Hales. Haseley flicks the ball on for the advanced Tom Tonks. He beat his man but blazed over the bar.


5 - A Tom Tonks corner is spilt by the away goalkeeper Jeffries when under pressure from Christie, but he gathers it at the second attempt.


2 - Bragoli with the Yeltz's first effort early in the game. Haseley sets up Bragoli on the edge of the box but his shot goes wide of the post.
