Magpies took an early lead through Will Harrison executing a short corner again into the top corner of the goal, which Martin Fields provided a quality injection. Magpies continued to dominate the first half and went close when a Jamie Legg wiggled his way through five defenders around the top of the area and then forced a fine save from the Redbridge keeper. Duncan Steven came close as the half came to a close when a cross from Phil Cobbald, but Duncan couldn't quite convert.

Magpies started the second half in a similar style with lots of flowing moves, but they were unable to find the finishing touch. Eventually Sam Moore lifted the ball over the keeper into the roof of the net. A third goal quickly followed when a short corner routine went wrong, but Martin Fields was alert and persistent and finished coolly.
