We’re underway.
Fairly even to start with.
GOAL for Ilkeston. 15 mins. Jamie Walker gives Ilkeston the lead slotting the ball into the corner of the net after a great move.
Then follows a scramble on the Ilkeston goal line but Yates grabs the ball. Then Yates does well again to hold a Brad Carroll header.
RED CARD. Massive blow for Ilkeston as Tyrell Waite is sent off. That really was ridiculous. Even the Lancaster players and officials look bemused. 22 mins.
A shot by Sam Bailey is saved by Matt Yates. The home side are taking advantage of their extra man.
Now Henri Wilder gets a talking to for complaining. This ref is ultra strict.
Zak Goodson appears to be tripped in area but nothing is given.
City miss a sitter. Their player intercepts a back pass, goes past Yates then puts the ball into the near side netting. What a let-off!
GOAL for Ilkeston. Amazingly, we’ve scored again, and again it’s Jamie Walker the scorer with a flyer into the top corner leaving Mendes stranded. 2-0. 35 mins.
City’s Jake Connelly misses a chance, shooting wide. They are pressing as we approach the interval.
Five additional minutes indicated.
Overhead kick by Connelly nearly on target.
Half time: Lancaster 0 Ilkeston 2.
[HTs: Man. City 2 Nottm Forest 0; Carlisle 0 Derby 1; Notts Co 2 Forest Green 0]
General opinion is that Waite was sent off for dangerous play but he didn’t appear to make contact with anyone.
City are straight on the attack.
Jamie Walker is yellow-carded for obstruction.
A break by Ilkeston sees Goodson go close with a shot over the bar following a 30-yard run.
Ilkeston fans are then stunned as Goodson gets flattened and the ref ignores it.
But it’s mainly City who continue to create the best chances.
[Notts County 2 Forest Green Rovers 2]
Taylor Anderson creates a breather for Ilkeston going up the field but the attack ends when his cross hits the side netting.
PENALTY for Ilkeston as Connor Dixon is tripped!
GOAL! Walker hat-trick! 62 mins. 3-0 Ilkeston lead.
City fans can’t believe the scoreline, and neither can I!
L’Varn Brandy replaces Zak Goodson on 70 mins.
More impressive defending by Ilkeston.
Now… a nasty-looking tackle by a City player goes unpunished.
[Notts County 4 Forest Green Rovers 2]
Yellow for a City player as their frustration shows.
GOAL for Ilkeston! Brandy, 74 mins. 4-0. Brandy takes a pass from Walker and calmly beats keeper Mendes.
More great escapes by Ilkeston as City pile on the pressure.
Declan Eratt-Thompson replaced by Ben Starkie, 83 mins.
Starkie is involved straight away. He is stopped illegally by two defenders but nothing is given.
Walker replaced by Hanson on 89 mins.
Ten minutes additional time to be played.
Heroic defending by Ilkeston continues. Great catch by Yates under pressure.
Full time: Lancaster City 0 Ilkeston Town 4
