2' Sean Cooke's corner is flicked on by Sam Hall and put into his own net by Rob Hopley.

53' Will Jones fires a shot from the edge of the box but it flies wide of the post.
57' Big chance for Joe Mwasile but he strikes his effort against the crossbar from close range.
62' McKenna brings down Cooke and the Dabbers have a free kick in a dangerous position.
63' Matt Bell duly curls the free kick in perfectly to make it 3-1 to the home side.
64' Calvin Hare handles the ball outside the box and is rightly booked. Cooke's resulting free kick is blocked.
68' Hopley tries an overhead kick from close range but his effort goes wide of the far right post. (See Jonathan White's photo in associated album)
69' Jaaskelainen back pedals and somehow gets a fingertip to Paul Williams's ambitious lob from the half-way line to deflect the ball against the top of the crossbar and over for a corner.
82' Penalty to Witton when substitute Nathan Cotterell trips Hopley. Paul Williams steps up and fires into the net to give Albion a late opportunity to rescue the game.
90 + 2' Ref books Cotterell following another foul but free kick is comfortably dealt with.
