90' + 7'

That's it from me I'm off to see what John Caulfield has to say about it all. Stay tuned for that reaction over the weekend and my colleagues match report will follow shortly. I've been Andrew Horgan,youve been great, until next time.

90' + 6'

Dundalk trudge off to applaude their supporters as City rejoice and celebrate another Cup success. 

90' + 6'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Cork City and Dundalk.

90' + 5'

GOAL!

Karl Sheppard scores for Cork City. Fine solo run from the subsititute down the left and into the box before drilling low and hard across the keeper and into the bottom left corner. City deserved winners and that seals it in style.

90' + 4'

The City staff are preparing the stand in front of us for their own presentation to their own club.

90' + 3'

Yellow Card

Brian Gartland is booked for Dundalk.

90' + 3'

Gutted I won't get to meet the President but City will just be glad to get their hands on his cup again.

90' + 2'

Substitution

Conor McCarthy replaces Stephen Dooley for Cork City.

90' + 1'

Substitution

Carlton Ubaezuono replaces Ciaran Kilduff for Dundalk.

90'

5 minutes added on here as Kilduff is carried off on a strecther.

88'

Winning big macthes and winning big trophies becomes a habit. City look like they finally have that habit, good start to the season for them but Dundalk will be back. Game halted as Mark mcNulty receieves treatment following a challenge with Ciaran Kilduff.

87'

Substitution

Connor Ellis replaces GearĂ³id Morrissey for Cork City.

85'

Time running out for Dundalk as they ring the changes. Looks like their race has run.

82'

Substitution

Shane Griffin replaces Steven Beattie for Cork City.

79'

Substitution

Jamie McGrath replaces Michael Duffy for Dundalk.

79'

Substitution

Niclas Vemmelund replaces Sean Gannon for Dundalk.

73'

Substitution

Steven Kinsella replaces John Mountney for Dundalk.

72'

Substitution

Conor Clifford replaces Stephen O'Donnell for Dundalk.

71'

Yellow Card

Garry Buckley is booked for Cork City.

70'

20 minutes to play but it looks a long way back now for Stephen Kenny's troops. City continue to press forward as they look to make it 5 wins in 6 against the Louth club after previously going ten games without a win.

68'

GOAL!

Kevin O'Connor scores for Cork City. Brilliant free kick on the left edge of the Dundalk penalty area perfectly placed by O'Connor into the near, top left corner past the despairing Sava who got a hand to it.

67'

Yellow Card

Paddy Barrett is booked for Dundalk.

65'

Substitution

Karl Sheppard replaces Greg Bolger for Cork City.

63'

I think "Comes to nothing" might be my new favourite phrase as the Rebels waste another set piece. It's certainly becoming my most over used phrase anyway.

61'

Kevin O'Connor's inswinging free kick is cleared as far as Gearoid Morrissey but the midfielders powerful attempt smacks the top of the roof of the Shed.

59'

Attendance watch. A very respectful crowd of 3,140 here at Turners Cross tonight. Most of them were nervous a moment ago when Michael Duffy broke down the left but his cross was evenatually hacked away by the Cork rearguard.

53'

The corner envitably comes to nothing.

52'

All City so far this half and they have another corner.

49'

The rain is absolutley lashing it down here in paradise, I mean Cork, as City force another corner but it again comes to nothing.

47'

City starting the second half brightly, good work by Garry Buckley tees up Sean Maguire but his goalbound effort deflects over the bar, the subsequent corner comes to nothing.

46'

And we are back underway with City attacking their favoured Shed end.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Cork City and Dundalk has started.

45'

After a spell of Dundalk pressure and a swift Cork City counter attack, the referee blows for half time with no additional time player. Good half of football that, its good to be back.

45'

Half Time

It is half-time between Cork City and Dundalk.

42'

Yellow Card

Kevin O'Connor is booked for Cork City.

40'

Another good chance goes begging this time its for City. A neat through ball by Garry Buckley is latched on to by Sean Maguire but his first touch, which takes him around the keeper is too heavy and he can only thump his effort into the side net from a tough angle.

34'

Dundalk almost grab the equaliser. Brilliant run and cross from Patrick McEleney down the left hand side picks out John Mountney at the back post but his excellent header back across the goals is brilliantly saved by Mark McNulty. The resulting corner is headed harmlessly wide by Brian Gartland who may feel he could have done better.

31'

Michael Duffy goes close with a free kick off his own but he can't get enough curl on it as it bends just wide of the bottom right corner.

29'

City have the ball in the net but its ruled out for offside. Conor McCormacks hopeful cross was headed in by Jimmy Keohane but it was rightly ruled out.

28'

All action here, Patrick McEleney slashes wide from 20 yards for Dundalk before City counter leading to Jimmy Keohane's cross deflecting just past the near post off the foot of Paddy Barrett.

26'

Sean Maguire a constant threat here with his pace but this time defender Brian Gartland stops him as he looked to get in behind.

21'

John Caulfield a little more relaxed following City's opener although he continues to pace up and down his technical area. Meanwhile Stephen Kenny is feeling to cold in Cork as he puts on his coat. Major news, you heard it here first.

16'

Goal perfectly sums up Sean Maguire's time as a Cork City striker. Composed, quick, lethal. Perfect start to the new season for him as he looks to better last season's return of 28 goals.

15'

GOAL!

Sean Maguire scores for Cork City. That man again comes back to haunt Dundalk, his former employers. The striker composes himself, bursts past his marker and into the penalty area before drilling the ball through the goalkeepers legs from a tight angle.

12'

Cork City win another free kick in a decent position and again it is Kevin O'Connor who takes it but his curling effort is gathered at the second attempt by Sava.

9'

Dundalk should be in front. Patrick McEleney's through ball somehow made its way to Ciaran Kilduff following a mistake from Conor McCormack but the attacker fires straight at McNulty when bearing down on goal.

6'

Bolger feeds Maguire who is fouled at the edge of the Dundalk box but it comes to nothing as Kevin O'Connors low drive strikes the wall. 

3'

So John Caulfield hasn't started wth a 2-7-1 formation but debutant Conor McCormack starts at centre half in a 4-3-3 with Steven Beattie an attacking right back.

2'

Good work by Sean Maguire wins the games first corner which is punched clear by Gabriel Sava in the Dundalk goal.

1'

False start by Dundalk but we are finally underway, good atmosphere as always at Turners Cross with the hosts playing right to left and Dundalk attacking the Shed End.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Cork City and Dundalk has kicked off.

Kick off fast approaching, teams will be out shortly to the national anthem, I hope they have the right one now unlike Pairc Ui Rinn last weekend.

Interestingly enough, just 10 of the players starting tonight started last season's President Cup which Cork City won 2-0. Well i thought it was interesting anyway!!

Debuts, debuts, debuts, everyone loves a good debut. Three debuts for Cork City tonight with potentially two more coming later off the bench. Dundalk just have the one debutant in the starting 11 but have four waiting in the wings if required.

0'

And the teams are in as you can see on the right of the screen. You may also notice that I have Cork City playing an interesting 2-7-1 formation. I'm sure they wont set up like that unless John Caulfield has been watching too much of Pep Guardiola during the off season.

Good evening and welcome to Extratime.ie, my names Andrew Horgan and I will be talking you lucky people through the best of the action as Cork City take on Dundalk in the Presidents Cup at a wet and blustery Turners Cross. It promises to be a cracker, 55 minutes to kick off.
