Late sub for Rocks as Higgins is replaced by Anderson. The goalscorer is clapped off

4:49pm

Carter swings corner into Rocks box from right, but Higgins is there to nod clear

4:48pm

Lovely run by Higgins after through ball followed by a cross from him, but defender beats Bryant to ball. Would have been 3-0 if he had got there

4:45pm

Parmenter sweetly hits a shot but it goes straight to Guzman

4:43pm

Free kick to rocks just outside GUlls box. Smiths takes and ball eventually rolls out to Symons who shot is pushed onto bar by Guzman. Well hit strike

4:41pm

About eight minutes to go here and East Thurrock looked to be cruising it here

4:39pm

Smith having to get treatment again on his leg. Might to be subbed in a bit

4:38pm

Free kick to Canvey about 40 yards out. Dumas takes. Sands cannot get head onto it though

4:36pm

Higgins thinks he's beaten offside trap and has chance on goal, only to see linesman's flag go up late

4:34pm

Gulls replace Chatting with Jack Edwards making his debut while on loan from Southend United

4:31pm

Sammons cross finds Higgins who heads over. Offside flag is up though

4:30pm

Bit of a delay to the game as Guzman is changing his gloves

4:27pm

Canvey bring on Calum Webb for Strickland

4:25pm

Corner to Rocks. Parmenter sends i. Guzman punch is weak but ball is cleared

4:24pm

Superb cross by Sammons just evades the head of Higgins, looking for his hat-trick still

4:23pm

Appears Smith will play on though for the timebeing

4:23pm

Lewis Smith down clutching leg. Looks in agony

4:21pm

Sellears sends free kick into box. Humphreys gets head on it but then B-Edwards is judged to foul Hughes and free kick goes East Thurrock's way

4:20pm

Chatting cross finds Sands whose volley goes wide, but ref blows up for earlier infringement so free kick to Canvey on left.

4:19pm

Nice passing move by Canvey sees Dumas get a cross in from left wing, but Sheehan is on hand to clear

4:16pm

First proper chance of half goes to Rocks. Witherspoon's cross into box finds Higgins but his header is saved well by Guzman

4:14pm

Lovely passing move by Rocks. Started by a punt by Nicky Symons which found Smith on right wing. About a dozen passes before Bryant ran into box, but ball got cleared. Looked good though

4:10pm

Parmenter booked for high foot into Hallett's chest. COuld have been red

4:08pm

Gulls already looking better on ball in second half, although only in early stages. Substitution has pushed Sellears back into right back

3:53pm

Win today for East THurrock is a must really. Losses in midweek to Wealdstone and Harrow Borough have dented their relegation battle

3:51pm

Some ex-East Thurrock players being introduced during half time. Some played in the club's first ever game

3:49pm

Poor half from Gulls. No possession and giving away any chances they have whenever they get near Rocks' penalty area. Very little to pick from their highlights. East Thurrock on other hand have looked decent and are causing problems down the wings.

3:47pm

Half time: East Thurrock 2-0 Canvey

3:46pm

Canvey fail to clear free kick but defence stands firm and block every pass and cross

Yellow to David Bryant for dissent

3:41pm

Slip by B-Edwards puts Witherspoon in, but he cannot produce a pass to create chance

3:39pm

Free kick to GUlls. Sellears takes. Hughes grabs onto ball though with salmon-like leap

3:38pm

Canvey still don't look to have settled. Every time they get near final third they give the ball away to easily

3:36pm

Free kick to ROcks thumped into box by Sheehan, formerly of Canvey. Higgins does a neat turn and tries to pass to Bryant, but GUlls defence clears ball

3:34pm

Jay Curran is currently serving a two match ban due to having ten yellow cards to his name. Looks like Canvey are missing him big time. Play down the right breaking down too often

3:33pm

Hallett takes a slip after trying to fire in a long range shot, meaning the ball scuffs up in the air

3:31pm

Sands hits shot on target for Canvey but Rocks keeper Hughes saves easily

3:29pm

Great opportunity spurned by Rocks as Smith cuts into box from left but Bryant cannot connect with the pull back given to him. Was on a plate for hime

3:25pm

Problem for Canvey so far has been link up play between defence and midfield. Not working at all well at moment. Gulls boss Danny Heale was in stands near me earlier and was not a happy bunny

3:21pm

Corner to Canvey. Taken short. But cross is over hit and allows Rocks to counter, but nothing comes of it

3:20pm

Rocks score again. Higgins scores again. Beautifully hit shot on edge of box.

After 19 minutes it is East Thurrock 2-0 Canvey

3:16pm

Smith loops ball over top of defence to Higgins, but his shot goes tamely into side netting

3:16pm

That was only second chance ROcks have had in this game after Smith's blocked shot. Canvey have struggled early on keeping the ball

3:13pm

Higgins makes not mistake from penalty spot. Straight down middle. After 13 minutes it is 1-0 to East Thurrock

3:05pm

Chatting does well with a little flick to put Hallett in again but once again linesman's flag is up

Canvey are wearing their green away kit today. Just in case anyone wants to know
