76'

And it's that man again. He can't stop scoring. A lovely cross from the right from Quinn was headed home from close range by O'Sullivan.

70'

Yellow Card

The first yellow of the night goes to Pike's John Tierney.

68'

Substitution

Pike make their first change; John Ryan for Michael Lipper.

64'

Lovely build-up play from Longford but the finish from Quinn left a lot to be desired.

59'

GOAL!

And that man O'Sullivan strikes again. Daniel Purdy did very well to play the ball into the striker, Pike keeper Gary Neville brought off a fine save to deny O'Sullivan before he pounced on the loose ball.

58'

Substitution

Corie Tracey who has been out for a number of weeks through injury comes on for Gavin Doyle. Mark Salmon (who started at right-full) will move back to the middle of the park.

46'

Substitution

Town make a change; Josh O'Hanlon is on for Gary Shaw.

46'

Second Half

The home side get the second half underway.

45'

Half Time

Half-time here and it's Longford Town who lead. They have dominated the first half but have failed to add to David O'Sullivan's 15th minute goal.

42'

Another chance goes abegging for the home side; Brian McCarthy fails to connect properly with a Quinn corner from the right.

31'

Longford need to put away some of the chances they've created because with just the goal in it anything can happen.

30'

Pike have yet to create anything in this game.

29'

Keith Quinn has a chance but it lacks power; he really should've done better.

27'

O'Sullivan with the pass to Purdy but he dragged his effort wide of the far post.

23'

And the home side create another chance'; this time it's Gary Shaw who curls his shot just inches wide.

21'

O'Sullivan has a chance but he puts he strikes his effort just wide of the post.

19'

O'Sullivan nearly turns provider'; he breaks down the wing and whips over an excellent ball across the goal which met the head of Daniel Purdy but it lacked power and Pike keeper Gary Neville got down to save.

17'

Former Wayside Celtic player O'Sullivan has been Cousins' ''signing of the season, actually scrap that we here in the pressbox think he has been Cousins' best signing ever for the Town.

15'

GOAL!

And as I speak the home side break the deadlock. Mark Salmon's pinpoint cross finds the head of ace marksman David O'Sullivan at the far post and he made no mistake.

14'

My lack of updates are based soley on the fact that very little is happening in this game. 

9'

The home side are bossing proceedings but have yet to have any decent effort on goal.

5'

We had technical problems here but they seem to be sorted. Well touch wood. Nothing to report so far.

1'

GAME ON!

The game here in City Calling Stadium is underway.
