90' + 5'

A hard earned victory for Dundalk who took control of the second half. Another controlled performance needed at Oriel Park next week though. Thanks a million for joining us live from Tallinn. Niall Newberry's excellent report will be online soon but from me, Tom O'Connor, it's oíche mhaith from Estonia.

90' + 5'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Levadia Tallinn and Dundalk.

90' + 4'

Substitution

Ronan Murray replaces Michael Duffy for Dundalk.

90' + 3'

Michael Duffy with a curling effort just wide following a great Sean Gannon interception in midfield. Ronan Murray is ready to enter the action in the closing moments here.

90' + 2'

Yellow Card

Markus Jurgenson is booked for Levadia Tallinn.

90' + 1'

Five minutes to be added on here at the enf of the game and Levadia are losing their discipline. The iimpressive Jurgenson scything down Chris Shields in midfield.

90'

Yellow Card

Nikita Andreev is booked for Levadia Tallinn.

87'

Substitution

John Mountney replaces Dylan Connolly for Dundalk.

87'

The Navan man is at it again down the right but Kruglov shows his experience to snuff out the danger. Connolly is in a bit of trouble here and it looks like John Mountney is entering the fray at his expense.

85'

It's all gone a bit quiet here as Dundalk try to control the final few minutes.

Great save from Lepmets!!

Connolly wriggled free of the defender and set up Hoban whose shot on the turn was well stopped.

81'

McGrath has been impressive all night and has received a rousing reception from the Lilywhite fans. His replacement has been in good goalscoring form of late- could he engineer a second for Kenny's men?



80'

Substitution

Krisztian Adorjan replaces Jamie McGrath for Dundalk.

78'

Levadia with a long throw which Dundalk defend and Dane Massey cops a stray boot to the nose as Marin attempts an overhead kick. Free out and the former Bray defender is playing on.

76'

Substitution

Mark Oliver Roosnupp replaces Jevgeni Harin for Levadia Tallinn.

75'

Great covering from Sean Gannon as he came over to the left back channel to cut off Harin. Levadia are ready with a third sub of the night.

72'

SAVE! 

Lempets stands up well to deny Connolly after an incisive Chris Shields pass- unlucky but a great save!

71'

Yellow Card

Dane Massey is booked for Dundalk.

69'

Yellow Card

Pavel Marin is booked for Levadia Tallinn.

67'

Substitution

Muamer Svraka replaces Rasmus Peetson for Levadia Tallinn.

66'

Chris Shields and Sean Gannon snuff out the threat of Harin down the Levadia left as the home side ready another sub.

63'

Jamie McGrath nips onto a loose ball ahead of Levadia's number 5, skips past their number 6 and releases his number 7 team mate Duffy. This man has a Master's degree in actuary- he's just showing us how good he is with numbers!

59'

WHAT A SAVE! A DOUBLE SAVE!!!!!

Gary Rogers claws out a deflected effort after Marin's effort hit Brian Gartland before reacting well to block the sub's second effort. An immediate impact from the replacement- shows what I know! 

58'

Strange substitution for me as Gando was getting into good positions down the Levadia right hand side. 



57'

Substitution

Pavel Marin replaces Marcellin Gando for Levadia Tallinn.

53'

Duffy with a lovely low cross and Dylan Connolly slid in at the back post to open the scoring here!

53'

GOAL!

Dylan Connolly scores for Dundalk.

52'

Neat work from Benson and Duffy down the left but Jamie McGrath's teasing cross curls out of play and Levadia take their time with the kickout.

50'

Jurgenson and Gando involved again and Hoare hacks a clearance out for a corner which Kruglov will take. Gartland heads it away and it's a corner on the other side for Tkachuk which was headed over by a combination of Debelko and Gando.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Levadia Tallinn and Dundalk has started.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Levadia Tallinn and Dundalk has started.

45'

Levadia are certainly no pushovers at this level with real danger down the right from full back Jurgenson and the left with Harin. Though the best chance of the half came in the last minute with Benson and Duffy cutting the home defence to pieces. It's all to play for here!

45'

Half Time

It is half-time between Levadia Tallinn and Dundalk.

44'

CHANCE!

Duffy and Benson link down the left and an incredible block from Podholjuzin deflects his effort over the bar. 

42'

Superb pass from McGrath to release Duffy whose cross is well defended from the danger of Hoban and out for a corner- Dundalk's second of the night. Free out to Levadia as Lempets is fouled.

41'

A second corner won by the rampaging right back Jurgenson but Tkachuk's effort comes to nothing and Rogers has a kickout to calm everything down.



38'

Marcellin Gando is drifting inside on the Levadia right hand side and looking dangerous, however most of Levadia's most potent attacks have involved Harin donw their left who naturally is hugging the touchline a bit more.

35'

Andreev came short and played in Harin but his left footed effort sailed harmlessly wide as the drum beside us starts up again.

33'

Jamie McGrath's header drifts narrowly over the bar following a great pass to the eventual crosser Benson by Chris Shields. Unlucky!

32'

Fourth corner of the night for Levadia and Rogers punches Tkachuk's effort to safety. Levadia look dangerous down the wings.

27'

Rogers denies Andreev the opener once more as the striker's deft flick is well gathered. 

From the back, Dundalk build and Massey's cross is just too high for Hoban who loops a header into the arms of Lempets.

25'

Andreev with a long range effort well saved by Rogers down low to his right- relatively comfortable for the Meathman whose handling has been impeccable so far.

23'

It all opened up for Dundalk for a moment as Benson and Connolly hared down the right and the Athlone man rolled the ball into the feet of Pat Hoban, unfortunately it just needed a readjustment from the striker and the moment was lost- inches in the pass and the former Mervue man was on course to trouble Lempets.

17'

Michael 'The Magician' Duffy skips into space and his daisycutter is deflected wide. His corner comes to nothing and Jamie McGrath backtracks to clear the danger.

13'

Andreev is fouled on the edge of the Dundalk box and Tkachuk finds the midriff of Gary Rogers from 25 yards with the first effort on target in the game.

11'

"Levadia, Levadia" coming from the stands as the home side win their third corner of the evening- this time it's Pat Hoban who chases away the danger. 

8'

Tkachuk with a corner which Dundalk scramble clear and Peetson's low effort had Gary Rogers scrabmling but the ball skimmed narrowly wide. Gando in late on Gannon and Dundalk fans aren't happy with the Levadia winger.

5'

It's 4-4-2 for the home side with the prolific Debelko alongside Andreev up front while Dundalk are in their familiar 4-2-3-1. Frenetic opening few minutes so far with the home side to the fore on the field and the Lilywhite support noisier off it!
