9:34pm

A point is a fair result after the sides cancelled each other out for large parts of the contests.

There were a few half chances for a winner but they went begging and honours ended even.

9:32pm

That's the end of the game. The ref chose not to add on any time.

9:30pm

88 - Belper's White goes in the book for bringing down Haseley on the break.

9:27pm

85 - Best chance of the game goes begging for Halesowen. 

Ben Haseley heads wide after a great ball into the box by Asa Chalton.

He was unmarked and should have done better.

9:25pm

84 - Kettle replaces Haseley as Belper look to attack again.

 

9:22pm

81 - one Belper go forward. They almost get in with a ball in the box but Asa Charlton recovers to clear the danger.

There still time for a winner here if someone can carve out an opening.

9:21pm

80 - Hales break well but Mackenzie's effort is high and wide.

9:17pm

76 - Thompson-Brown with another snap shot after the ball breaks in the box. He hit it straight at the keeper though. Better from the Yeltz.

9:15pm

Mackenzie on for Hales as he replaces Aaron Forde.

9:14pm

73 - The Yeltz bring on Tonks to replace Turner.

The home side will be looking to try and get on the ball more now to see they can find the winner.

Both sides are continuing to cancel each other out now after Belper earlier pressure has eased.

9:12pm

Belper continue to shuffle the pack as Cole replaces Stevenson.

9:08pm

Belper make the first change as Ward replaces Wells.

9:07pm

65 - Chance to Hales. Thompson-Brown turns well on the edge of the box and fires a powerful shot at goal which the keeper pushes away.

9:06pm

64 - Sargeant saves from a Edridge header.

9:04pm

63 - Belper are piling on the pressure now with a host of corners. The Yeltz are dropping deeper and deeper.

9:01pm

The visitors keep hitting testing balls into the box. Hales need to try and get some possession as the pressure starts to mount.

9:00pm

58 - Chance to Belper! How did that stay out? A deep corner is somehow kept from going over the line.

8:55pm

54 - The second half has continued the same as the first with both sides evenly matched.

8:50pm

49 - Turner bursts forward down the left but his ball into the box is defended.

8:46pm

Halesowen get the second half underway.

8:36pm

A disappointing end to the half for the Yeltz.

The penalty looked harsh after Bragoli was adjudged to have handled even though it was far from deliberate.

Justice was done as Sargeant saved but Hales couldn't clear the danger as Belper kept the attack alive.

8:32pm

That's the end of the first half action.

8:32pm

But Belper score soon after.

Sargeant saved from the spot but the ball is put back in the box and Marrison gets to the ball first after the ball breaks in the box after being headed back into the mix by Froggatt.

8:29pm

Saved!

8:28pm

Penalty to Belper.

8:25pm

Halesowen will be the happier after getting their noses in front early.

Belper have maybe had a little more of the ball but real chances have been few and far between.

8:24pm

37 - Both sides have cancelled each other out for large parts of the contest so far.

8:18pm

32 - Belper have looked dangerous as they throw balls into the box with Well causing a few problems as he works hard to get to the ball first.

8:13pm

27 - it's a scrappy affair at present but Halesowen look dangerous when the get forward. Till and the overlapping Kristian Green are having some joy down the Hales right.

8:11pm

24 - Thompson-Brown works a chance for himself when he attempts a overhead kick after the ball loops into the air as the defence looks to defend a Haseley run into the box.

8:07pm

21 - Unlucky for Belper. Froggatt hits the post from a snap shot from the edge of the box.

That could have easily been the equaliser.

8:01pm

14 - Belper are now having a spell of pressure after the goal. Halesowen have had to defend a series of corners but have so far handled the threat.

7:58pm

Great work down the right flank from Till who crossed to the far post.

Turner met the ball with a controlled right footed finish past keeper Martin in the Belper goal.

7:57pm

11 - Elliot Turner fires Hales ahead!

7:51pm
