90+14 - The ref brings the contest to an end.

Glassboys win!


90+9 - Coleman collects a cross from the right flank to see off some late Nantwich danger.


Stour are keeping the ball well enough now and should be doing enough to make sure the points are theirs. They should really be out of sight but have a little more defending to do yet.


Stour then break well and Brown's drive is tipped over by the keeper.


90+4 - Nantwich come forward but can't create an opening this time.


Benbow is replaced by Rock as the clock reads 90 minutes. We are now into what could be more than ten minutes of injury time.


86 - Chance Stourbridge! Brown and Benbow link up again. Benbow's cross is met by Brown but his effort goes wide.


The visitors are maybe finishing the stronger.

There could still be more goals in this yet.


The Glassboys just can't kill off Nantwich and somehow they keep finding enough to keep themselves in the contest.


Crazy game at Amblecote now.

Jordan Johnson latches onto a poor clearance from Dean Coleman and lobs the ball into an empty net.


81 - And once more Nantwich hit straight back.


He gets in behind and fires a powerful drive past Smith.

Nantwich want offside but the new linesman adjudged he was on.


77 - Benbow hat-trick!


74 - The game continues after a ten minute delay after a new linesman is found in the crowd.

We will have quite a bit of added time tonight.


We have a delay while another official gets ready to replace the injured linesman.


67 - The linesman finally pulls up and the call goes out for a qualified official in the crowd to come forward.


Haynes is replace by Smikle for the Glassboys.


They attack well and when an Andy White effort comes back off the post, Harry Clayton was on hand to put it in.


63 - But Nantwich it straight back!


Knight makes up for his misjudged effort that gave Nantwich a lifeline at the end one first half and it was fully deserved for the home side.


Will Richards rises highest to head toward goal from a corner. His initial effort was saved but Chris Knight followed up to slot home.


57 - Goal Glassboys.


55 - Nantwich make a double substitution to try and turn the tide.

Pepper and Lewis are replaced by Meaney and Bramall.


Once again it is Stour who are creating the better chances.



53 - Saved! Brown exchanges passes with Benbow and fires an effort toward the top corner which is pushed away by keeper Smith in the Nantwich goal.


52 - The Glassboys continue to come forward in the second half. Nantwich are having more of the ball than they did in the first half though and the game is quite even so far.


49 - There is a break in play as the linesman is injured with what looks like a pulled muscle.

He receives treatment and soldiers on.


Stourbridge start the second half.

The first goal this half will be important. Stour will want more of the same after a brilliant first period that they dominated.


The ref brings the first half to an end.

Stour were great at times and should be more than two goals ahead.

Nantwich pinched one back before the break to give them hope for the second half.


44 - That goal came totally against the run of play but Nantwich have a lifeline before the break.


Knight missed judged a bouncing ball and Steve Lewis latched onto the lose ball, worked his way into the box and slotted past Coleman.


39 - Nantwich hit back.


The Glassboys have been superb so far. They look dangerous every time they come forward.



Glassboys get it forward quickly. Kayelden Brown picks up the ball, drives towards the Nantwich box and hits a fine effort into the bottom corner.


32 - Glassboys make it three!


31 - Jordan Johnson nearly gets in after a long Nantwich ball over the top, but Coleman deals with the danger and smothers the ball.

So far the visitors have been reduced to half chances.


29 - Chance to Stour. Harris finds Benbow in the box and his effort is tipped round the post by keeper Smith.


His effort is way over the bar.

But that's how close it is for Stourbridge's good start to be undone


27 - Nantwich have a chance to pull one back with a free kick on the edge of the box from a central position.


27 - The willing runs from Will Richards and Kayelden Brown are keeping the visitors on their toes.

After such a strong start the Glassboys will want more before the break.


Stour are having joy down the right flank with Ben Billingham and Kyle Haynes.


21 - Nantwich come forward now and win a corner. The effort is well defended by Stour.


18 - Great start to the game by the Glassboys. Nantwich haven't been able to handle them coming forward so far and Benbow looks in the mood for more.


He met Haynes' cross from the right flank with a powerful header past Nantwich keeper Smith


13 - Benbow again!


11 - Even more pressure as Stour continue to come forward. Brown drives towards the edge of the box and fires a shot wide of the post.


9 - He turned well on the edge of the box after the ball broke to him and curled a fine effort in off the post.


Glassboys take the lead through Luke Benbow!


6 - Good from the Glassboys. Benbow feeds Canavan with a neat back heel but he drives an effort just wide of the post from the corner of the penalty area.


5 - Both teams keen to get forward early in the contest. 

A corner for the Glassboys causes problems but Brown side foots an effort over the bar.
