Alfreton to get the game underway, down the slope first half.
Straight out of play from the kick off, Trinity throw in the right back position 0-0
1: M Wilson ball forward finds Jarman, who wins an early corner. L Wilson takes. Panic in the box and shot blocked - clear
3: FK @alfretontownfc right back area. Aimed towards Clayton who wins his header. It's cleared by the #blues
Clayton already putting himself about. Be an interesting tustle again between him and @mattysw87 #Reds have a corner
5: Lacey off the line after the centre back up from defence rises highest to head on goal 0-0
Good claim from Willis sets Trinity away, picks out Worsfold with a quick throw out and Templeton carries the ball
Templeton cross on the run, Lacey is the man arriving at the back post, but the Alfreton defender smuggles it out for a throw 0-0
12: Monkhouse has to be alert after a bright one touch spell of interplay involving Thewlis, Worsfold and Lacey. Good play!
13: Double block by @alfretontownfc 'keeper Spiess bravely biocking twice at the feet of Reece Hands

20: Another good break from #Trinity following a confident take from Willis, out to wing back Lacey who is able to break over halfway 0-0
23: Willis taken out as he attempts to claim another booming cross. Jarmo not a happy bunny. Play to restart in red half with a dropball 0-0
28: Superb recovery tackle by Laurie Wilson after #Trinity were almost caught with a quick throw down the right 0-0
30: Corner to #Trinity in the final third. Josh Lacey trots forward to take the throw. It's dealt with at the front post - just 0-0
32: Heaton is allowed to dance into the box and square across the six yard box. Fortunately for #Trinity there is no one there to profit
Offside against Thewlis after some good play, winning the second ball, Hands attempting a clever throughball. Maybe should have shot?
36: Ball dropping for Laurie Wilson after Lacey had cut back onto his left foot to cross. Wilson's volley not troubling Spiess 0-0
38: GOALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! Jordan Thewlis profits and puts Gainsborough a goal up 0-1
A frightfully short backpass sees Spiess exposed and Thewlis nicks the ball, rounds the keeper and rolls home!

43: Bright and alert goalkeeping from Willis sees the ex Blade punch clear under pressure and relieve some of the pressure 0-1

Poor header from Wilson towards Spiess which leaves Gainsborough bearing down on the Reds goal but a great recovery from Kennedy - Corner.

Good ball to Wilson in space down the left from McGowan as the Reds enjoy a period of possession but its comes to nothing.
Josh Lacey invited forward by Reece Hands, but it's neither a cross or a shot from the wing back. It's a corner that's cleared in the end

GREAT SAVE! Former Red Willis pushes it over for a Corner. The Ref spots a freekick though and the visitors clear.
Laurie Wilson with a one two with the wall. First one wasn't great. Second one swung in with some devil. Too good! 0-1
Clayton & M Wilson continue their battle royale and Willis gets a stroke of luck there as the ball didn't drop for the #Reds on edge of 18yd

90+2 Jarman skews his effort off target after he was picked out by a brilliant cross field pass. Wide of the near post! 1-1
The Reds are pushing for a winner as Westcarr finds a pocket of space. He crosses to Monkhouse tries to place it but gets it all wrong!

And that's 90 minutes. 1-1 There will now be a period of 30 minutes each way extra time.
