- Follow the action as the Yelts take on Loughborough Dynamo at The Grove (3pm kick off).
That could be a big goal for Halesowen, especially with title rivals Leek drawing today.
It goes straight through and the Yeltz get a goal kick.
Dynamo free kick and they will put the ball in the box from deep
89- Town come forward and Hasley gets a shot away, but his tame shot is saved.
Westcarr is on for the visitors.
Loughborough come forward in search of an equaliser and there have been some nervy moments as Hales look to clear their lines.
A poor game but that could be a crucial goal for the Yeltz!
He made space on the edge of the yards and hits the bottom corner from 25 yards!
80- Gueyes comes on for Mackenzie.
78- Halesowen still can't carve out a real opening.
Danks and Turner come on for Christie and Botfield as Town look for a goal.
The Yeltz are building some pressure now. Most of the game is being played in the Loughborough half recently.
67- Halesowen could be seeing their title chances ebbing away. They need to find something here.
62- The Yeltz are again struggling to get going. The game has gone scrappy here as both sides are finding it hard to keep the ball. It looks like Hales will need a slice of luck or a moment of magic to break the deadlock.
Halesowen's midfield have struggled to get on the ball today so far. The game is a little flat now. Halesowen need to lift it here.
Hales go straight up the pitch and win a corner. A powerful header from Tilt was palmed away by the keeper right on the line.
49- The second half has started where the first left off.
Best chance of the game so far falls to the dangerous Smithson for the visitors, but Sargeant makes the save.
Loughborough start the second half.
An underwhelming first period for the home side. They will be looking for a bright start in the second half.
44- Halesowen have been reduced to hopeful balls in the box.
39- Another decent chance for the visitors. Watson hits an effort but he drags it wide under pressure from the Hales defence.
It has been a disappointing first half for the Yeltz. They haven't really got going and have been reduced to set pieces and half chances.
35- Christie with a snap shot. But his effort again goes the wrong side of the post.
30- Loughborough are playing well at the moment. They are knocking the ball around better of the two teams at the moment. Hales need to raise their game here.
24- Hales keeper Sargeant is called into action when the lively Luke Smithson tests him from outside the box and cutting in well from the right.
Dynamo are getting some joy down the Halesowen left.
The Yeltz are slowly getting into the game and getting more of the ball though.
20- A host of Tonks long throws keep the pressure on for Halesowen. A third long throw is cleared and met by Mackenzie on the volley, but the ball sails over.
15- Better for the home side. Haseley latched onto a loose ball and fires his dangerous shot just wide.
13- More danger for Town. Towers put a dangerous ball across the box and Kristian Green had to put it behind for a corner.
Tilt then does well to block
9- Loughborough have started the brighter and their forward Watson has worked the channels well.
5- Dynamo get the first shot away when Martin Bowles volleys an effort over.
Neither side have really got going as yet. The visitors have maybe had a little more of the ball.
