Tamworth vs Cambridge

14:53 FULL-TIME: Tamworth 2-2 Cambridge United. On balance a fair result, The U's we're the better side in the first half but had to do a lot of defending in the second as Tamworth came out a different side.

14:52 Richard Tait heads at goal after meeting Christies cross but Naisbitt holds.

14:48 Four added minutes to be played. Tom Shaw booked for Cambridge for a late tackle.

14:47 Harrison Dunk crosses deep from the left and Patrick connects and forces a good save from Hedge, who I have to say has been brilliant today.

14:46 A rare attack from the U's sees Shaw get into the box but his cross is saved by Hedge.

14:42 The stewards are being kept busy by the United fans as a Orange flair has been set off behind the goal!

14:39 Marriott has been replaced by Tom Shaw.

14:37 Gudger shoots from 20 yards and Naisbitt does brilliantly to tip it over for a corner. From the resulting corner ambridge are awarded a free kick.

14:32 Fantastic flowing move from Tamworth results in Naisbitt making a fine save to deny a goal. Tamworth win a corner but again Cambridge defend well. The homeside looking strong here at the moment.

14:31 James Brighton comes on for Cambridge in place of James Jennings.

14:29 Iyseden Christie wins his side a free kick right on the edge of the box, but the shot is hit straight into the wall. James Jennings was booked.

14:27 Tamworth have a corner which the U's defend well.

14:24 Cambridge make a change as Harrison Dunk takes to the field in place of Gash. Good to see Dunk back. Liam Hughes is now playing upfront.

14:17 Gash should have done better as he broke the offside trap but hit a tame shot first time at Hedge.

14:15 Paul Green is booked for a foul on Berry. Tamworth make a double change as Nix and Collins are replaced by Patterson and Gudger.

14:10 Tamworth win a corner off James Jennings but the set piece causes the U's no trouble as it results in a goal kick.

14:04 GOAL: Tamworth 1-2 Cambridge United. Lightening start from the U's as Jordan Patrick breaks into the box and scores from a tight angle, I'm not sure if Marriott got the final touch but the tannoy man said Patrick so I'm going with that, Sorry Adam.

14:04 Tamworth get the second half underway and the attendance is announced as 1137 with 323 travelling from Cambridge.

13:38 Brave defending from Thorpe to deny Christie a shot at goal, it's a corner for Tamworth but Naisbitt punches away well.

13:31 GOAL: Tamworth 1-1 Cambridge United. We're all level and it's no more than the U's deserve. Hudson played the ball wide to Hughes who crossed early and Adam Marriott got across his defender to power his header past Hedge who did well to get a hand to it.

13:30 Cambridge win a free kick in a good position for a foul on Jennings, but it's a poor delivery from Jarvis and Tamworth head clear.

13:28 Great move from Tamworth results in Christie shooting low to Naisbitt's left but the keeper saves well.

13:26 Marriott has time to cross but is wasteful and overhits it into the stand.

13:25 Thorpe beats the full back and gets to the by-line and crosses low but Francis puts it behind for a corner, almost at the expense of an own goal. Jarvis takes the corner but tamworth head clear.

13:20 Great shot from Jarvis from outside the box which was heading for the top corner but credit to Hedge who saves well, corner to United. Jarvis takes and again McAuley meets it but heads straight at the keeper.

13:17 GOAL: Tamworth 1-0 Cambridge United. Completely against the run of play but Tamworth take the lead through Jean-Paul Mariner. A cross came in from the right, and it looked as though Naisbitt was fouled as he attempted to catch, but the ball dropped in the area and Mariner tucked it into an empty net.

13:15 Brilliant from the U's, Hughes sets Gash free down the right who delivers a quality cross to the far post where Patrick meets it with a volley that is well saved and out for a corner. Jarvis delivers and McAuley heads over.
