FULL-TIME: Stratford Town 0-0 St Ives Town

STRATFORD Town play host to St Ives Town at the Arden Garages Stadium today, Saturday, as the Blues seek to keep up their Evo-Stik Southern Premier Central play-off push.

Thomas Baillie's men are currently fourth in the table but have a good chance of finishing second if they can win their three games in hand on second-placed Stourbridge and other results going their way.

That aside, Baillie's aim has always been to be in the play-offs come the end of each month and anything extra will be an added bonus.

For all the action from today's game, follow the live feed below.

4.56pm: Full-time here and it's finished 0-0. Thanks for following and report will be online very shortly.

4.51pm: Very end to end stuff here but it remains goalless.

4.25pm: Carvalho bursts into the area but he over-runs it and Conway can claim the ball.
