4:57pm

Full-time. Eventful but a disappointing defeat.

4:57pm

Lee Ayres meets Deeney's free kick and heads wide.

4:56pm

Tempers are frayed now. Not long left.

4:56pm

Taylor goes down in the box, City want a penalty, the referee doesn't want to know. Birley barges into the ref in protest but I think that's more accidental.

4:55pm

Thompson is forward, meets the corner but can't do anything with it.

4:55pm

Mills' cross is put behind for a corner.

4:53pm

The 90 minutes are up. No idea how much time to add on.

4:52pm

Taylor nods the ball down in the box, Birley scuffs his effort.

4:51pm

City have had chances to win this, they haven't taken them.

4:49pm

GOAL. Histon (86 mins). Sub Matthew Walters curls a superb effort from out on the left into the top corner. Thompson no chance.

Birley gets in a timely interception with Grant Roberts about to pull the trigger.

4:47pm

Taylor and Glover link up, the latter puts his effort over the bar under pressure from the defence.

Freeman lets fly from distance, Thompson gathers.

4:44pm

Histon cannot handle the pace of Taylor, nor his strength for that matter.

Sub. City (74 mins): Matt Breeze comes on for Jacob Rowe.

4:36pm

Taaffe has the ball in the net but the flag was already up. Some sloppiness creeping in from City.

4:32pm

Yellow card. City (69 mins). Greg Mills for foul on Zak Mills.

4:14pm

GOAL: City (51 mins). Taylor makes an immediate impact by breaking into the box, getting the better of the defender and sliding the ball past Calum Kitscha.

4:12pm

The attendance is 804. Not bad considering the doubt over the game.

4:12pm

Taaffe drags a shot wide as the visitors seek a third.

4:10pm

Histon again out the blocks the quicker.

4:09pm

Second period under way.

3:44pm

Histon playing with the confidence which belies their lowly league position.

3:24pm

City still pressing but Histon have had the better of things in the last few minutes.

3:19pm

Shot from Kane Sheppard is straight at Glyn Thompson.

3:18pm

Symons does really well to escape the clutches of two defenders, plays in Elvins and his effort is deflected wide. The corner finds Jacob Rowe whose header is caught by the keeper.

3:16pm

Free kick from Mills is somehow hacked clear for a corner under the Histon bar. The flag kick is wasted.

3:15pm

3:09pm

Good move sees Kyle Patterson free in the box but he is offside.

3:06pm

Tom Thorley is flattened by James Stevenson but eventually manages to get to his feet. It's a drop ball, Rob Elvins fires it back to the keeper and is on target. That would have been controversial had it gone in.

Bright start from the visitors, no doubt keen to make an early impact.

3:04pm

Game kicks off.

2:48pm

Today's match is the only one in the league to beat the weather. The pitch looks good which is credit to groundsman Tom Allcut and his team of volunteers.

2:44pm

Tyler Weir misses his first game of the season because a facial injury, meaning Jacob Rowe starts at right back.

Otherwise City are unchanged from the goalles draw against Altrincham to weeks ago.

City: Thompson, Rowe, Deeney, Thorley, Whitehead, Ayres, Patterson, Elvins, Symons, Glover, Mills. Subs: Taylor, Breeze, Reece, Birley, Dormand.

Histon: Kitscha, Z Mills, Uttridge, Clerima, Fitzsimmons, Roberts, Freeman, Stevenson, Sheppard, Taaffe, Porter. Subs: Waters, O'Malley, Logan, Sessions, Clark.

Referee: Simon Barrow.
