Live Updates for Shelbourne -v- Limerick

94'

Brady with two more saves. Kilduff gets a shot away in the box but it's straight at the keeper. It falls to Oscar Brennan 20 yards out who hits a powerful volley which Brady has to parry over the bar.

92'

Brady is unreal.

I didn't think he could top his last great save from Brennan's effort but he quite possibly has.

Substitute Darragh Noone hits a peach of a curling shot and it's heading straight for the top corner. That is until Brady leaps and touches the ball over the bar.

90' + 5'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Shelbourne and Limerick.

That's the performance they've been looking for. A dominant 2-0 win which could have been 5 or 6 had it not been for the magnificent Jack Brady.

90' + 1'

Minimum of 4 added minutes.

89'

Kilduff nearly gets on the scoresheet. His brilliant curling effort looked goal bound but went just wide.

88'

Substitution

Dayle Rooney replaces Alex O'Hanlon for Shelbourne.

88'

85'

Substitution

Darragh Noone replaces Karl Moore for Shelbourne.

85'

Substitution

Ciarán Kilduff replaces Ryan Brennan for Shelbourne.

83'

Yellow Card

Shaun Kelly is booked for Limerick.

79'

Ryan Brennan hits the post. He will be raging if he doesn't score today. He latched onto Moore's cross and headed back across goal only for the bottom of the post to deny him.

77'

Substitution

Lee Devitt Molloy replaces Jason Hughes for Limerick.

73'

WHAT A SAVE!!

Now that was his best of the day. 

Brady pulls off a wonder save as Ryan Brennan hits a brilliant acrobatic scissors kick. Brady's reactions are incredible as dives to punch the ball wide.

72'

Not quite as dominant this half but Shels still look very comfortable.

58'

Substitution

Kieran Hanlon replaces Karl O'Sullivan for Limerick.

57'

Great save again by Brady, possibly his best of the day.

English gets a cross in and finds Karl Moore who picks his spot and heads it towards goal. Brady dives and is at full stretch the put the ball out for a corner.

52'

Chance for English as his quick feet and control continues to hound Limerick down the right. He skips into the box and gets a shot away but Brady dives low to save.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Shelbourne and Limerick has started.

45' + 5'

Half Time

It is half-time between Shelbourne and Limerick.

45'

GOAL!

Lorcan Fitzgerald scores for Shelbourne.

James English comes into the box from the right and clashes with Aaron Fitzgerald and goes down. The ref points to the spot and Lorcan Fitzgerald hits it down the middle with Brady diving the wrong way.

It's a very generous penalty and I think he has it wrong. It looked like shoulder to shoulder.

42'

Aaron Fitzgerald had come on for O'Loughlen at left back in what was a tactical substitution with almost all of Shelbourne's chances coming from the right.

Unfortunately it didn't improve the away side's chances at all as they continue to play everything through that right flank.

38'

GOAL!

Karl Moore scores for Shelbourne. 

Finally!!

It's down that right flank again as Aidan Friel plays a ball across the face of the goal and Moore only has to tap in from two yards.

36'

Wow incredible defending by Limerick. Brady comes out of his box and heads the ball away. It finds Ryan Brennan who shoots from 40 yards but Aaron Fitzgerald miraculously gets back to head the ball over and injures himself in the process.

32'

A volley from Daniel McKenna but it's too high and over the bar.

28'

Substitution

Aaron Fitzgerald replaces Colm Walsh O'Loghlen for Limerick.

28'

Another big chance as English gets down the right again and pulls the ball back to Aidan Friel on the edge of the box. He hits a good shot heading to the top corner but Jack Brady makes his best save of the dayas he continues to be the only positive part of Limerick's performance so far.

25'

Yellow Card

James English is booked for Shelbourne.

25'

Big penatly appeal. English skips past his man and goes down in the box. It looked like a penalty from up here in the press box but the new referee gives him a yellow for diving.The ball would probably have gone dead anyway.

23'

Huge Chance!!

English puts in the cross and again the Limerick defence completely miss the ball and it falls to the unmarked Ryan Brennan. He should score but hits it straight at Brady.

22'

O'Hanlon gets into the box and turns a defender then nearly lobs the keeper. Only a matter of time before a goal is scored.

20'

Ryan Brennan gets another long range strike away but hits it over. He was too greedy there as he had plenty of support with Limerick looking very stretched. O'Hanlon lets him know his frustrations.

14'

A stoppage here as there's a ref substitution. It is unclear what exactly happened but he has some sort of injury.

9'

It's all Shels as Ryan Brennan puts a shot from 20 yards left and wide.

5'

Another big chance and another good save from Brady.

Shels are running riot down the right flank in the opening minutes.

Karl Moore is played through and his cross back to the edge of the box finds Alex O'Hanlon unmarked with lots of time to pick his spot. Unfotunately for him his shot was too close to Brady who parried it away.

3'

James English has just missed a gilt edged chance. The ball was swung in and was missed by all the Limerick players and fell to English. He controlled it well and only had Jack Brady to beat from two yards out. In fairness to Brady he made himself big and pulled off a great save to save his defender's blushes.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Shelbourne and Limerick has kicked off.

0'

The teams have just arrived out on the pitch on this warm night. Perfect footballing conditions.

0'

It's a tough one to call today. Limerick are ahead in the table and on a good run of form but Shels have home advantage and you get the feeling that their strong team are going to click very soon.
