Magpies 0 Chippenham 1

9:33pm

88 - Smeeton lets fly with a free kick that clips the angle of bar and post.

9:27pm

82 - Steve Walker has gone for another yellow.

9:24pm

79 - Chippenham are now down to nine with Iain Harvey given a second yellow, seemingly again for dissent.

9:22pm

77 - Seventh booking of the night as Greg Tindle is carded for Chipps.

9:11pm

66 - Two yellows for Magpies now with Cann and Smeeton going in the book for fouls.

In between those Chippenham had a great chance to make it 2-0 when Ballinger went through one-on-one with Walker-Harris but the keeper saved his shot.

9:07pm

Hectic few minutes at the Avenue.

First, Kauppinen tips a Smith shot on to the post and then gets up to block Buckley's shot.

McCready is then booked, Smeeton glances a header wide, and Harvey is also booked for Chippenham.

8:56pm

51 - A cross from Jon Beeden hits the Magpies' bar then at the other end Lanahan doesn't get enough power on a sgot from eight yards.

8:49pm

Second half has started.

8:48pm

Sam Lanahan is on for Will Agbo as the second half is just about to start.

8:36pm

8:35pm

MAGPIES 0 CHIPPENHAM 1

8:30pm

MAGPIES 0 CHIPPENHAM 1

44 - The 10 men have taken the lead just before the interval.

Oakley Hanger didn't clear the ball inside his own area when he should have, Guthrie crossed and Luke Ballinger headed past Walker-Harris.

8:25pm

Chippenham are further incensed when the linesman gives a free-kick to Dorchester when it should have been a throw in.

The walk down the tunnel at half-time should be interesting...

8:21pm

Guthrie's ball into the box takes a touch off a Dorchester player so it's a corner....which goes straight out.

8:21pm

35 - Despite having a man advantage Dorchestre are yet to fully assert themselves on the game.

No real chances since the Crittenden one for either side but Chippenham have a free-kick in a promising position...

8:12pm

25 - Steve Walker is booked for an over the top foul on Alex Ferguson.

8:08pm

8:04pm

18 - Great chance for Crittenden to open the scoring. Smeeton pulls the ball back and from just inside the area Crittenden screws shot wide.

7:57pm

12 - Chippenham have had to reshuffle their side and Ben McCready has replaced striker Omar Simpson to bolster the defence after Osman's red card.

7:55pm

8 - Chippenham are down to 10 men following a red card for right-back Toby Osman.

He and Dan Smith clashed near the Magpies' dug out and the latter went down clutching his face.

Smith was booked for his part in the altercation but from the reaction of the Chippenham players and bench they feel the Dorchester man made a meal of it.

7:51pm

7:51pm

6 - Nice interplay involving Crittenden, Agbo and Smith ends with Smith firing a left-footed shot over the bar.

7:46pm

1 - The match has got under way and Dan Smith has already had the first effort on goal but the Chippenham keeper gathers just 25 seconds in.

7:43pm

Teams are out at the Avenue and Chippenham are wearing a lovely lime green kit tonight.

7:36pm

MAGPIES v CHIPPENHAM TOWN match preview

Two sides with two wins from their first three games meet at the Avenue tonight with both looking to be at the top of the table by the final whistle.

After losing to Arlesey on the opening day, Phil Simkin's men have beaten Burnham and Hereford and can get a third triumph on the bounce if they win here tonight.

With Weymouth's game at Bideford off Dorchester could pull three points clear of their rivals who they meet on bank holiday Monday.

Team news coming shortly...
