Long Eaton Utd v Ilkeston Town - Live Updates : Sat 23rd March

It's yet another big match for Ilkeston in their quest for promotion and this time it's against our Erewash neighbours Long Eaton United. It's a vital game for Ilkeston whose position at the top is now under severe threat by Walsall Wood. Ilkeston have failed to win any of their last six away games and Long Eaton are unbeaten in their last six home games. So based on current form,  it looks like a Long Eaton win. We need our super star striker Elliott Reeves to end his mini goal drought. We need the whole team to be at their best.  We need top vocal support from our amazing supporters who will be there in their hundreds. Let's make it a day to remember. 
Follow the match progress here. Team news around 2 15 pm.  Live updates throughout the match starting at 3pm.

It's 30 minutes to kickoff and the ground is filling up. The pitch is dry and in good condition. Matt Baker has been left out of the squad.

The stand is nearly full and it's quite an atmosphere. Loads of Ilkeston supporters here.  Ilkeston are in red today and Long Eaton are in blue/back.  I've never known such an atmosphere -  extra loud thumping music as the players of both teams take the field.   its 3pm  kick off time and we're off.    ........

Reeves breaks through and appears to be brought down on edge of area but ref waves appeals away. Elliott is causing trouble with his running at defenders. Marshall caught offside again but Long eaton are taking risks.  Defences are on top so far.       0-0     11 minutes
