A bus load of Ilkeston fans are here as well as those having made their own way.
I understand the kick-off may be delayed slightly due to a car breakdown. The car contained some Ilkeston players! They have since been picked up.
Peep! We’re underway.
Montel Gibson crosses, Maguire gets his head to it but it’s wide.
[Midds 1 Derby 0]
Ilkeston are enjoying plenty of possession. But Muyembe forces Durrant to make a good save at the other end.
Charlie Wakefield hits a post.
Ilkeston are on top but Histon are defending well.
[Midds 1 Derby 1, Bird.]
[Midds 2 Derby 1 – Derby have scored all the goals!]
[Midds 3 Derby 1]
RED CARD. Ilkeston’s Maguire is sent off for illegally stopping a Histon breakaway. Big blow just before HT.
Half time: 0-0.
[Other HTs: Midds 3 Derby 1, Forest 0 Stoke 0, Halifax 0 Notts 1]
Ilkeston have been well in command but find themselves handicapped by being reduced to 10 men for the second half.
[Derby also suffered a big blow just before HT, conceding two goals, so 3-1 down after playing well.]
Second half underway at Histon.
Ilkeston go forward again – they need a goal to show for their dominance. Ilkeston fans are getting frustrated.
[Forest 1 Stoke 0]
A Histon player falls in the Ilkeston penalty area but the ref isn’t fooled, Histon look dangerous at times.
Ten men Ilkeston can’t find their usual rhythm.
Irvine is on for Gibson. Bird free kick is heading for the top corner but keeper Sam Roach turns it round the post. It remains 0-0 after 75 mins.
[Forest 1 Stoke 1]
Wilkinson tests Durrant.
Then Roach saves a volley from Brown-Hill.
Ilkeston bring on fresh legs: Goodson and Bird are replaced by Troke and Reid.
Only 5 mins left.
