The Terras do not deserve to lose this. Can they rescue a point in the closing stages?

Oh that is so cruel!!! Kim Forsythe scores on the counterattack to give Hitchin a 3-2 lead.

9:21pm

The Terras made a cracking start to the second half and deserved to go ahead through Michael Walker's header from a free-kick but since Dan Webb equalised Hitchin have upped the tempo and caused more of the problems. Attendance 250

Hitchin equalise to make it 2-2

8:59pm

Michael Walker puts the Terras 2-1 up.

8:48pm

The Terras will be playing up the slope in the second half. There are also concerns about the lighting at the ground, particularly from Jason Matthews.

8:47pm

The first half was a bit of a war of attrition and so far the Terras have shown great character and spirit, and have given as good as they have got. In fact they almost went ahead before the break when Matt Groves headed narrowly wide under pressure following good work from Stewart Yetton.

8:35pm

Hitchin 1 Weymouth 1

8:32pm

Still pretty even at Hitchin heading towards the break. The Terras have had the benefit of the slope in the first half but have been unable to make it count as much as they would have liked despite producing a much-improved performance. It's still 1-1

8:13pm

8:09pm

Scott Walker curled the ball around a two-man wall and beat the keeper, who could not reach it diving to his right. That equaliser is thoroughly deserved.

Hitchin 1 Weymouth 1. Scott Walker equalises free-kick from 30 yards on 16 minutes

8:03pm
