And that's the full time whistle!
Robinson-Richards found him central on the edge of the box. He chested it down and fired it into the bottom corner!
89- Joe Lawley scores for Causeway.
Can anyone find the winner as we enter the last minute.
That was close to finding the bottom corner but the deadlock remains unbroken.
86- Francis -Mills is causing lots of problems now. he gets in behind and hits a good effort across the keeper but just wide of the post
84- This time it is Francis-Mills and Causeway that hit the post!
Mills is played in by Beasley but strikes his shot against the near post.
Brown hits the post! The resulting corner finds its way to the forward once more but his header this time hits the post from close range. Unlucky for Highgate.
He found room at the far post from the breakaway but his looping header hits the bar and is turned behind
80- Lei Brown hits the bar for Highgate!
Another chance for Causeway when Tibbetts drills a low effort just past the post.
75- It remains a tale of two keepers today. There has been no shortage of goal-mouth action but the score remains 0-0.
End to end action at The Grove at the moment but defences stay on top for now. First goal could be crucial should someone get it here.
Again Causeway come forward and Turner is called into action once more to deny Lei Brown six yards out.
64- Chance to Highgate. Former Causeway player Tom Reynolds finds space from a set piece but his header was saved.
Causeway's Sam Beasley is getting some joy as he looks to drop off the forward line and pull the strings.
Causeway have come back into what is now an open game with action at both ends.
61- Rion Francis-Mills passes up the best chance of the game. He lifted his effort over the bar with just the keeper to beat after being played in.
59- Robinson-Richards is booked after bringing down the Highgate forward right on the edge of the box.
Highgate wanted a penalty there, but the ref adjudged it was just outside.
57- Better again from the home side. Will Tibbetts has an effort palmed away by the keeper.
55- Beasley blazes over after finding room on the edge of the area. Better from Causeway who have started slowly until then.

52- another chance to the visitors when Brown has another effort saved at the near post by Turner.
50- Highgate create the first real opening of the second half when their forwards link up well. Reece Lynch has his low effort saved
Highgate get the second period underway.
The ref blows for the end of the first half. it's been a decent half for the home side but they could have done with breaking the deadlock after creating two or three openings and forcing visitor keeper Hornby into some good saves.
Causeway have been the better of the two sides this half but just haven't been able to put one of their chances away.
44- Joe Lawley finds some space on the edge of the box but blazes over for the hosts.
38- a good spell from Causeway sees Francis Mills have an effort cleared off the line after the keeper spilled it.
