1530: The Comrades make the breakthrough as a Danny Power cross is directed into the top corner by the head of Anthony Page. 1-0

1536: The Eagles level after Berko stand off deep in their own half and a low cross from Matt Kimami is side-footed into an empty net by Manny Richardson. 1-1

1634: The head of Anthony Page is again a potent weapon for Berko from a Power free-kick.

1635: Steve Hawes is cautioned for stopping play in midfield.

1641: Inside the last ten minutes, and the Comrades will need to play to the end against a good Bedford side.
