The teams are out.. #letsgo https://t.co/1jEGRcsMoz
Nyoni to get the #Volts off, shooting right to left in front of us here
Early break from Halifax, Jordan Sinnot with the cross, claimed by Willis, who goes long. #Trinity throw in just inside the Halifax half
2: Michael Jacklin into the book, chopping down the Halifax left winger. It's going to be a difficult night for Jaffa now! 0-0
7: Both sides feeling each other out a bit at the moment - both sides trying to work the ball wide before getting crosses into the box 0-0
11: A dangerous ball across the face of Willis' goal, Danny Clarke can't get a telling touch on the ball - goal kick 0-0
12: Kosylo with the first effort on target - testing Willis, after Matt Wilson could only partly deal with the attacking intentions.. 0-0
Twice @FCHTOnline have shaped to go long with a throw in around twenty yards from goal and twice worked a quick throw to get a cross in 0-0
15: OFF THE BAR! Dion Charles strikes the bar, the follow up hit the back of Willis, but Wilson clears the danger - just 0-0 it remains
It's just coming back at the moment, the ball isn't sticking up top for the #Volts - this level of pressure isn't helping the Holy Blues..
18: Kosylo with a jinking run, turning Chris Salt in and out, Wilson gets in the block, but it comes back to him and he fires over the bar!
ONE NIL GAINSBOROUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A rare foray forward for Trinity, Worsfold picked the pocket of the defender and squared for Thewlis to put Gainsborough 0-1 up!
@GainsTrinityFC Jordan Thewlis on 21 minutes
Thewlis with a low effort from the edge of the box, Johnstone is down at his near post to save after the referee waved penalty appeals away
Corner to Gainsborough, Johnstone flaps at Chippendale's floated free kick... pressure being applied by the resurgent #Volts
Denton doesn't get off the floor & heads tamely at Willis after Charles got to the by line and picked out the big man at the back post 0-1
30: Throw in for #Trinity who are looking dangerous from set pieces, which is good against the size and power of @FCHTOnline 0-1
Chippendale doing a good defence job there, tracking back and winning the ball off Kosylo, just the workrate #Trinity need... working hard
33: Flag was up after a Denton flick to the back post was forced goal wards, but five #Trinity players were throwing their bodies in the way
35: Kosylo gets in behind and fires past Willis, but the flag had long been up. #Trinity defending resolutely at present 0-1
Chippendale, dancing feet, wins a corner for #Volts, Callum to take himself, headed clear at near post - cleared - Tempest strike blocked!
37: Bailey-King into the book, the same man Jacklin took down after two minutes 0-1
38: And now Koslyo goes into the book, catching Worsfold with a late tackle
41: Beaten away by Willis from David Lynch's drive from 25 yards after he had punched under pressure, finished by claiming the corner 0-1
43: Kosylo has pulled up chasing a switched ball from left to right, even hurt he was able to make room for a low cross, cut out by Evans
@GainsTrinityFC His course is run, #Town first change, Kosylo makes way for Adam Morgan.
And a corner to the hosts, once Mr Morgan has readjusted himself - time ticking towards half time, #concentration
@GainsTrinityFC Brave header clear at the near post by Evans, who is fouled. Free kick to #Trinity as the referee indicates three added mins
Thewlis & Worsfold doing brilliantly there to make the ball stick and give #Volts some respite as the interval approaches 0-1 #Trinity
HALF TIME And at the break boos echo around The Shay as #Trinity lead the game through Thewlis' strike midway through the half 0-1 C'mon!
The second half is back underway - and it's a Trinity throw away to our left
Free kick to Trinity, right of centre - thirty yards out, Tempest over the wall, over the bar and behind - #Trinity still lead 0-1
49: Willis down smartly at his near post, Wilson then clears for a throw rather than a corner - from the throw - it's all going on!
Jordan Thewlis - Goal #8 vs FC Halifax Town: https://t.co/8lecGMeb6S via @YouTube
51: 1-1 Halifax are level, short free kick caught #Trinity on their heels and Danny Clarke is 'credited' with the goal
Denton & Wilson having a bit of a ding dong - the atmosphere has just changed with the equaliser - #Trinity will need to work hard again
Worsfold doing well there to put in a last gasp tackle after a quick release from Johnstone turned defence to attack
@GainsTrinityFC Willis called into action at his near post, a fine stop with his legs
A... C Salt into the book, a bit ungainly in the challenge on the home winger - they don't profit from the FK though - going short to groans
65: Tempest - excited... volleys wide after Worsfold had pressured the centre halves, the dropping ball wanted to be hit... 1-1
66: Sinnot moves on to the ball and frm 30 yards hits his effort straight at Willis, he's safe with two Town men following in 1-1
Thewlis a box of tricks trying to get into the box, his and Bailey-King's driven crosses repelled. Long throw from Tempest to come...
@GainsTrinityFC Headed to the edge of the box - and Evans fires over the bar
Double change 67' Bailey-King and Chippendale replaced by Wiles & McGovern. Welcome back @JackMcGov
#Trinity with their backs to the wall. Corner to Halifax. Low to the near post, cleared to Thewlis who wins a throw on half way 1-1
George Willis is fouled as he comes to take the corner, the home side aren't happy as Jonno takes to the field- Willis to take the free kick
74: Goal mouth scramble - cleared by Halifax - after Salt had driven the ball across the face of goal, when it's against you, it's... 1-1
There's a foul on Willis, Evans clears off the line, but the 'keeper is in some discomfort here, fifteen to go - 1-1
#Trinity through Salt, Wilson & Evans kicking and heading everything, #inittogether defending, backs against the wall 1-1
Evans with a brave block, Denton denied at point blank range - but forced home, unbelivable save - so unfortunate - Adam Morgan 80' 2-1
83: Jarman replaces Nyoni in the final change for #Trinity
Evans booked for his reaction after a no holds barred wrestling match between him and Denton. 25 yards out, beats wall - Willis wide
Four minutes added time
Attendance tonight - 1,403
Throw in to #Trinity - last throw of the dice?
@GainsTrinityFC We haven't lost any ground on @WorcesterCityFc who have also lost 2-1 against @brackleytownfc this evening...
