3 mins - Arnison clipped a lovely cross into the area with the outside of his right boot for the All Stars. Murphy was on his own but he somehow guided his downward header wide from just six yards out.

8 mins - A ball over the top evaded Livesey and Joe Garner scuffed a shot into the bottom corner.

10 mins - Peter Murphy levelled the scores when he skipped through the middle to get to the edge of the box. He picked the perfect finish past Gillespie into the bottom corner.

12 mins - Danny Graham put the All Stars in front when he beat the offside trap to take the ball round the keeper. The angle was tight but the finish was never in doubt.

14 mins - Chris Lumsdon shanked a horrible shot into the Warwick from 20 yards. Least said ...

19 mins - James Berrett crunched a rising shot over the angle of post and bar from distance and Joe Garner put one right at Glennon when he found a bit of space.

20 mins - Robson tried to lob Glennon when the ball was lined up for the shot but it was underhit and easy for the keeper.

22 mins - Matt Jansen rolled back the years as he skipped through two challenges to go into the area. Kavanagh made the tackle which stopped the shot.

23 mins - Great cross McGill. Had to be defended as Graham and Jansen lurked.

27 mins - Joe Garner worked some space with Higginbotham but bent a shot over from a very tight angle.

36 mins - Ian Arnold was clean-through but the ball got stuck under his feet and the chance was gone.

39 mins - One-touch football took the All Stars to the edge of the box but Lumsdon placed his shot wide. Hackney on for Lumsdon.
