We’re off.
It’s unusual to see defender James Perch leading Ilkeston’s attack today. Rylands in blue. Ilkeston in red.
A great run by L’Varn Brandy excites the Ilkeston fans here but it ends when his final pass is intercepted.
Brockbank get a shot in for Rylands but it is easily saved by Yates.
Much better save by Yates from Cockerline.
Big pressure from Rylands in the first half of the first half. Yates is having a lot to do and so far he’s kept everything out.
PENALTY for Ilkeston! Delay as the ref consults his linesman and then gives it. Cursons was brought down in the area.
NO GOAL! Jamie Walker’s spot kick hits a post. 27 mins.
Then Walker heads the ball across to Cursons, whose header is saved by Pilling.
Yates saves Ilkeston again after another great run into the box by Brockbank. He and Tom Marshall are working hard to keep Ilkeston in the game. Rylands are on top again.
Another save by Yates who is regularly winning the admiration of the home crowd – along with L’Varn Brandy who is getting gasps from the fans with his dribbling and ball control skills.
Half-time: Warrington Rylands 0 Ilkeston Town 0
[HT: Forest Green Rovers 0 Notts County 0]
We’re off again.
Wafula is on for Brandy.
Yates in action straight away grabbing Duffy’s low cross.
Another Ilkeston escape. It seems only a matter of time before Rylands score.
Cockerline miscues his shot but Yates still saves it.
Alex Marshall replaces James Perch.
Declan Eratt-Thompson replaces Connor Dixon. This means that Declan has played in every league game for the Robins this season.
That was so lucky! The ball hit Tom Marshall and rebounded into Yates’s hands!
GOAL for Rylands. At last they lead. Mo Touray the scorer. 79 mins.
Chance for Alex Marshall from a breakaway. Keeper saves.
Then Cursons has a good go.
Ilkeston are pushing forward when they can.
PENALTY for Rylands, 90 mins.
GOAL.
Full time. Warrington Rylands 2 Ilkeston Town 0.

Salute in the air for Donald

Ilkeston’s oldest resident and the fourth-oldest surviving WW2 veteran Donald Rose is being honoured with a Spitfire flyover on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May.
Two of the famous warplanes will fly above the Canal Vue care home where he lives.
The RAF were only too willing to agree to the flight after staff at Canal Vue on Awsworth Road contacted them.
They are expecting many townspeople to join them for their special event which will include food and drinks and songs by Lily Lovejoy, a ‘vintage vocalist’ specialising in wartime songs.
The party starts at 1pm – with the flypast scheduled to take place at 1.45.
Donald was born in 1914 and saw military action in many parts of the world. He has been decorated many times, including receiving France’s highest award – the Legion D’Honneur.
Erewash’s Mayor Cllr Frank Phillips said: “The borough and the entire nation owe an immense debt of gratitude to Donald and all those like him.”
Deputy Mayor Cllr Kate Fennelly said: “Having served in the RAF, I have the utmost respect for our courageous old soldiers, especially world war veterans like Donald. There are fewer and fewer left who we can talk to face-to-face about their experiences.”
Naomi Allsop of the care home said Donald is a much loved resident and everyone is excited about giving him this treat.
