90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

And Neil Doyle brings the game to a close. Bohs have defended resolutely here, and come away with a hard-earned point - their first of the season. St Pats for their part remain undefeated. Not the most exciting game ever, but far from the worst. Fionn will have his match report up on the site shortly. Thanks for joining us, until next time.

90' + 3'
We're into the final minute of the three to be added.

90' + 2'

Yellow Card

Karl Moore is booked for Bohemians.

90'
There will be three minutes of additional time.

88'
Right at the death, Karl Moore nearly nicks it for Bohs. A stunning left foot volley smacks off the bar, down on the line and is cleared. Did it cross the line? hard to see from here, but the crowd are on their feet as the game enters the dying few minutes.

86'
Sean O'Connor runs down the right before cutting in on his left foot. Adam Martin gets in his way and clumsily brings him down for a free kick to the saints.

85'
The Gypsies have defended well today, but once they get past the halfway line, they don't seem too sure what to do with it. There have been far too many misplaced passes for Callaghan's liking, yet they still find themselves very much in this.

83'
The ball is sprayed wide and onto the chest of Bermingham. He cuts inside and shapes to shoot, only for the mercurial Owen Heary to close down his shot. Seven minutes left.

80'
Meenan beats his man on the right and fizzes a cross in from the right byline. It evades everyone and danger is again averted.

79'
O'Connor gets a shot away from the edge of the box, but it is tame and rolls straight into the grateful hands of McNulty.

77'

Substitution

Bohemians Sub - John O'Connor replaces Stephen Traynor.

75'

Yellow Card

James Chambers is booked for a foul on Dave Scully on the halfway line.

72'
The game is beginning to open up a bit now. Not much, but a bit. The game has not flowed at all, being punctuated with Neil Doyle's whistle every minute or two. It hasn't been that kind of game though.

69'

Substitution

St Pats Sub - Ian Daly replaces striker Stephen O'Flynn.

67'
There's a clash of heads in the Bohs box, and the physios are on to give O'Flynn treatment. Ian Daly is receiving his final instructions on the Pats bench and should be joining the fray soon.

66'

Substitution

Bohemians Sub - defender Derek Pender will play no further part in the game. He is replaced by Peter McMahon. Owen Heary, it seems, will move to right back.

64'

Yellow Card

Anther free kick in for Pats - this time Conor Kenna uses his hand to try and steer it in and receives a yellow card for his troubles.

63'
O'Connor hits it off the wall...

62'
McMillan brings down Chambers on the edge of the Bohs box. Free kick in...

59'

Substitution

St Pats Sub - former Bohs striker Christy Fagan replaces John Russell.

59'
Derek Pender looks in some discomfort here, and it looks unlikely that he can continue.

57'

Substitution

Bohemians Sub - Dave Scully replaces Dinny Corcoran.

53'
Harney takes the free kick long into the Pats box. Owen Heary is on hand to cushion a header down to Corcoran, but the referee's assistant has his flag up and the Gypsies' number 24 is foiled again.

52'
Kenny Browne wins a good header against Dinny Corcoran just inside the Pats half, only to see the referee to blow his whistle for a Bohs free.

49'
Ger O'Brien finds himself down the right. His cross comes into O'Flynn who lays it off to Russell who is beaten to the ball by McNulty in the Bohs goal. It has to be said that the young Bohs keeper hasn't looked out of place in his league debut.

48'
Darren Meenan is on the left wing and he swings a delightful cross in with his right foot. Stephen O'Flynn is beaten in the air and Bohs come away with the ball.

46'

Yellow Card

First incident of the second half, and that didn't take long. Derek Pender goes in late on John Russell, and the Bohs defender is booked for his troubles.

46'

Second Half

St Pats kick off the second half...

45'
The players are back on the pitch and we await the start of the second half. Pats have perhaps looked the better team, but it's the scoreline that counts and Aaron Callaghan will no doubt have underlined that to his players at the interval

45'

Half Time

No added time, and Neil Doyle brings the first half to a close.

42'
Three minutes left in this half, and still at deadlock. A goal before half time would change things, but it is looking less likely by the minute.

39'
Dwayne Wilson embarks on another run up the Bohs left wing, but as was all too common this half he has found himself with no support.

37'

Yellow Card

Dave Mulcahy loses the ball inside his own half and out of frustration kicks out at Sean O'Connor to give us the game's first yellow. Like most frees so far however, it amounts to nothing.

34'
The Bohs fans are on their feet, and they're not happy as the referee perhaps unfairly awards a free kick against them. Bolger takes it quickly, but the eventual cross goes straight to a Bohs player and clear. Still 0-0 here in Dalymount.

32'
Another effort from Pats, again from distance, but this time a bit closer. Greg Bolger gets a clear sight of goal and shoots. The ball goes to the right, McNulty had that one covered though.

31'
A Bohemians free from deep is overhit and Clarke collects it comfortably.

28'
James Chambers blasts the free kick under the wall, but there are too many players in the box and the ball is cleared.

27'
Evan McMillan gives away a free kick 30 yards out.

24'
More tentative passing from both sides, with the visitors perhaps edging the opening exchanges.

21'
O'Flynn sees an ambitious right footed shot from distance go over.

20'
The corner comes to nothing but a subsequent long throw from Bohemian's full back Neil Harney finds itself to the feet of Corcoran. Before he can strike it, the referee blows his whistle for an infringement. Free out for Pats.

19'
Stephen Traynor tries to play Dinny Corcoran through, but Pats have a defender in the right place to see the ball out for a corner.

16'
We have the first real chance of the game, and it has fallen to Stephen O'Flynn. He receives the ball on his chest deep inside the Bohs box, and unleashes a fierce left foot volley. He gets power behind it, but unfortunately for him not direction, and the ball blazes over.

15'
A St Pats corner on the right is cleared by Owen Heary's head. The ball comes back in the Pats fans call for a penalty as they claim it's struck Heary's hand - ambitious claim.

12'
Bohemians are lining out in a more traditional 442 formation.

11'
St Pats are lining out today with a 433/451 formation with Stephen O'Flynn the lone striker being joined by Meenan and O'Connor when possible.

9'
It's been a scrappy opening, with neither team taking the game by the scruff of the neck. Tentative stuff here.

6'
John Russell shoots a tame shot at the Bohs goal. It lacks conviction, but nonetheless McNulty has to scramble across to see it out.

4'
Ger O'Brien sprays a beautiful cross field ball to Sean O'Connor on the Pats left wing. His cross is blocked and rebounds off the Pats winger for a goal kick.

1'

GAME ON!

Bohemians get the game under way. St Pats in their changed navy strip play into their noisy fans in the Des Kelly stand.

The players are on the pitch about to meet the Lord Mayor...hold onto your seats.

0'
...nothing gets the blood flowing pre match like some Johnny Logan!!! Five minutes now until kickoff.

0'
Among the supporters here today we have the Lord Mayor of Dublin and the lads from Royseven...

Last season, we saw three draws in the four fixtures between these teams, with Pats winning the fourth tie. Those ties only saw three goals...but we are still optimistic here in the press box!

0'
We have a few predictions in so far. Julian Lee reckons Pats will win 3-1, Mark Juett reckons we'll see a 4-4 draw, while Robert O'Reardon is less optimistic and doesn't think we'll see any goals today...I hope you're wrong Robert.

0'
The substitutes are now up. The crowd are beginning to filter in and the sun continue to beat down. Just under a half an hour until kickoff.

0'
50 minutes to go to kick off, and the teams are in (either side of this page). Christy Fagan must wait a bit longer for his league debut for St Pats while Bohemians give McNulty a start in goal.

Ok. So we can't ACTUALLY guarantee in, but we're working on that! We hope to have team news within the next hour, but in the meantime, this is where you play your part. Who is going to win? Who is going to star? Who is going to come back to haunt their old club? Will the flurry of red cards continue - we want to hear from you! I am Brian Fitzgerald, and with me is Fionn O'Dea, and we want to hear from you! You can contact us on twitter (@B_Twitzgerald) where we will be happy to answer any of your questions as well as hear your comments.

Bohemians haven't scored yet this season, while St Pats top scorer Dean Kelly sits this one out through suspension. Nil all bore you say?? No chance... these are always the games that are incident packed and have goals galore!! We at Extratime.ie can virtually guarantee that!

It's a glorious day here in the capital - perfect weather for this afternoon's Dublin derby here in Dalymount Park! As if this derby needed anymore spice, we have countless players lining out against their old clubs!
