90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

Linfield's free comes to nothing, and the resulting counter attack comes to nothing. Raymond Crangle blows his whistle and the game ends in a draw - Derry definitely the happier of the two sides as David McDaid's late goal pegs back Peter Thompson's first half strike

90' + 2'
Three minutes of injury time here, one minute left, Linfield launching one last free forward.....

90' + 1'
Dermot McCaffrey's corner is cleared to Patrick McEleney on the edge of the box, but his strike on goal goes well over

90'
Another corner to Derry, can they win it at the death!?!

89'

Yellow Card

Michael Gault brings down the elusive Patrick McEleney about 30 yards out from goal - his strike is well hit and forces Alan Blayney to tip the shot over the bar, corner to Derry.....

89'
Derry City fans can be heard around Windsor Park. Some have even disgarded there red and white shirts even on what is a cold night in Belfast!

88'

Substitution

Derry Sub - Ryan McBride comes on for Ruaidhri Higgins.

85'

GOAL!

David McDaid has Derry back in it! Barry Molloy picks out Stephen McLaughlin on the left at the back post, and his header across to McDaid is controlled and then well struck past Alan Blayney in the Linfield goal - away goal for the Candystripes

84'
Barry Molloy slips a great pass through for Mark Farren who looks to be in on goal, but he fails to get any contact on the ball and is eased off the ball by Albert Watson

83'
Horrible moment for Stephen McLaughlin. He's put through with space in front of him on the left flank, but when he tries to put an early ball across to Farren, the ball bobbles and he slices the ball straight out of play

82'
Derry trying to lift it here, but they're struggling to really show the quality needed to get an equaliser

76'
Peter Thompson is put through on goal, but a poor first touch gives Ger Doherty an extra second to get off his line and block the strikers chance to shoot - good goalkeeping saves Derry

75'

Yellow Card

Shane McEleney chops down the lively BJ Burns - booking

73'
A Barry Molloy cross misses the head of Mark Farren, but falls for Stephen McLaughlin whose volley is blocked and goes out for a corner - Linfield manage to clear the resulting set-piece

72'

Substitution

Linfield Sub - Daryl Fordyce comes on for Michael Carvill.

70'
Billy Joe Burns is proving to be a huge threat coming forward from his position of right full, his early cross nearly picks out Northern Ireland international Peter Thompson - but Derry just do enough to deny the striker and the ball is headed back to goalkeeper Ger Doherty

69'

Yellow Card

A bad tackle by Stephen Douglas, another tackle from behind sees the Linfield man go into the referee's book

67'
Linfield go close to making it 2-0! Billy Joe Burns receives the ball on the right wing, and his cross come shot strikes the woodwork - Ger Doherty was well beaten

65'

Yellow Card

He's definitely in the thick of things - Patrick McEleney is booked for a tackle from behind on Stephen Garrett, free to Linfield on the left flank

64'
Great break by Derry City, and it's that man McEleney again who is at the centre of it. He tracks back to win the ball and then releases David McDaid, whose centre across to Farren is well dealt with by the home defence

63'
Patrick McEleney looks like he could be the most likely Derry player to create something, he comes deep to pick up the ball several times, before spreading it wide to Simon Madden. The full-back though puts his cross straight out of play - he's capable of better

61'
Barry Molloy fouls Charlie Mulgrew, free out to Linfield. Molloy trying to drive his side on, they need to up the tempo if they are to get back in this game

60'

Substitution

Derry Sub - Mark Farren replaces Matthew Crossan.

59'
Stephen McLaughlin fouls Billy Joe Burns when the defender was under pressure - silly from the attacker

57'
Robert Garrett releases Peter Thompson down the right flank, though the strikers cross is poor, Derry fail to clear it properly, but when the ball falls to Michael Gault, he drags his shot across the box and Derry do eventually clear the danger

56'
Linfield with an attacking free, but after trying to pick out the run of Michael Gault, the home side concede a free, free out to Derry

53'
Peter Thompson tries to release Philip Lowry on the right, but the pass is too far ahead of the midfielder - but at least he prevents the ball going out and the play ends with Michael Gault winning a free

51'
Jamie Mulgrew goes down under a challenge from Barry Molloy - Linfield fans not happy that the Derry man's challenge goes unpunished

50'
Two passionate sets of supporters in Windsor Park tonight - Derry City fans currently are cheering on their side with a flare to add some extra motivation! Interesting to see Sinn Féin's Martin McGuinness watching the action here tonight too

48'
Linfield free came to nothing - Derry eventually come back down the field and Patrick McEleney again nearly instigates something but his through ball is too far ahead of David McDaid

47'

Yellow Card

But it comes to nothing as Linfield break through Jamie Mulgrew, who ends up being fouled by Dermot McCaffrey - the Derry defender receives a booking

46'
Great start to second half by Derry - Patrick McEleney brought down on the edge of the box - free to Derry.......

46'

43'
Derry seem to have failed to settle into any rhythm so far.

42'
Linfield are getting SO much space around the Derry box and wings. Another chance up the left for Linfield is blocked twice and cleared but Derry are being exposed at the back

41'
Michael Carvill in acres of space in the D fires a shot high and over from a cushioned header

40'
Dermot McCaffrey gets so little on the ball but a vital touch to concede a corner but stop a potential Linfield chance from developing.

39'
Derry City win a free kick on the right side of the Linfield half. Ball doesn't make it over the first defender and Linfield end up with a throw.

37'
Free for Derry inside the Linfield box but wastefully fired all the way to the Linfield keeper. Declan Devine is not too pleased

34'
Stewart Greacen is down injured after his header clear. He's up now and a free kick out is taken by Derry

33'
Mulgrew attempts to get a corner off Barry Molloy but he sees the ball out for a goal kick

30'

15'
The Linfield players are finding lots of space around the Derry box which the League of Ireland side will need to sort out.

13'

GOAL!

Linfield win another corner. The ball comes in, headed to Burns on the edge of the box and his shot is deflected into the goal off Peter Thompson!

12'
A ball sent into the Linfield box which was screaming out for a Derry body to connect with it but no one was really in the box bar McLaughlin a few metres away from the ball's final destination.

10'
Some of the floodlights have gone off in Windsor Park but play continues. Now the lights are coming back on.

9'
Linfield's Jamie Mulgrew has time and space outside the box to attempt a shot but it runs wide of the goal. He had plenty of time there to line up the shot.

7'
David McDaid gets the ball on the right, and comes in past Curran and fires a shot just over the Linfield crossbar. A good opportunity. Space available for both sides on the right wing in the opening exchanges

6'
Linfield win the ball in their own half and break at pace, but the Derry City rearguard block out the danger.

4'
The opening period has been a good one for Linfield but a long ball forward by Patrick McEleney bounces over the defence and McLaughlin just can't get onto it.

2'
Linfield play it down the right, cross in and the home side win the first corner of the game. The corner comes in and results in a second which is headed clear but Linfield keep the pressure on.

1'
Linfield straight into attack and Doherty is outside his box and forced to clear it upfield
