46'

Second Half

Second half underway here now, no changes from either side.

45' + 3'

Half Time

Half whistle and it's a sickening blow for the home side with that second goal. The Blues have done well since the first goal but that goal makes it a big hill to climb in the second half.

Greene booked here in the penalty area. It looked like a penalty from here.

36'

The home side are certainly still in this game and havent buckled after the concession and are continuing to press.

32'

Great move from the home side. Michael Coady and Jack Doherty combine down the left to find Kevin O'Connor in the middle and he plays Vinny Sullivan through but the shot is straight at Gary Rogers who saves well.

29'

Almost half an hour gone here and the game has slowed down a little since that goal. The sun continues to shine here but not a lot for the home side to shout about. Plenty of noise from the away fans here too. 

24'

Another penalty shout here for the home side as Paul Quilty's run is blocked by Rovers keeper Rogers but referee Sean Grant waves on play on once again.

21'

The home side with plenty to complain about with the award of the corner that led to the goal to the goal, with the ball looking to have crossed to line before being knocked behind by a blue player.

Iarfhlaith Davoren a very lucky boy here as his late challenge on Paul Quilty inside the penalty box doesn't see a penalty given by referee Sean Grant. 

7'

All Sligo Rovers here in the first few minutes with the home side struggling to get a hold of possession.
