Potts clips it in from the left, Maguire is up to flick it on and its just behind Barkhuizen who was following in at the far post. 

Johnson crosses well from the right, Maguire is up ahead of Stockley but can’t direct his header goalwards.

Samba Sow comes off for Tiago Silva.

Still isn’t much separating the two sides as we head into the final planned stoppage of the game.

Ledson’s kick is taken short to Johnson and returned to Ledson, the cross is blocked for another corner. 

Another let off as it doesn’t beat the first man but PNE get a corner.

The third is headed out as far as Johnson who blazes over on his right foot. 

Stockley flicks the ball on, Potts gets onto the second ball takes it forward and his strike is blocked by Jenkinson as he bears down on goal.

The corner comes in and again the referee finds a foul.

Tom Barkhuizen enters the game, Scott Sinclair coming off. 

Yates is fouled by Johnson inside the PNE half, the set piece comes in and Yates is the man to win the header, directing it wide of the mark. 

Nothing of note happening so far in the half, both sides have sent efforts goalwards but nothing that has seriously tested either 'keeper.
