Live Updates for Dundalk -v- UCD

90' + 3'

Three one is probably a harsh result for the game Students who played well in patches against a strong table topping Dundalk outfit. A good runout for a number of fringe players including the impressive Dummigan and Aaron McCarey who made a couple of great stops. 

For UCD, it's a long road ahead to the end of the season but tonight will have been a useful exercise in seeing which players are capable of putting in a good shift for the rest of the year. 

NIall Newberry's excellent report will be online soon but from me, Tom O'Connor, it's oíche mhaith from Oriel Park and thanks for joining us once again.

90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Dundalk and UCD.

90' + 1'

Great through ball to find Lotefa who accelerated into space and saw his low effort pushed out by Sheridan but only into the path of the onrushing Georgie Kelly who scored low into the unguarded net. Hasn't been the Donegal man's greatest night but he's netted.

90' + 1'

GOAL!

Georgie Kelly scores for Dundalk.

90'

Three additional minutes to be played. 

87'

Substitution

Jack Ryan replaces Paul Doyle for UCD.

85'

Gannon has moved into his customary right back position while Hand is now alongside Shields at the base of the midfield. UCD looked for a leveller which looked unlikely prior to that Mahdy strike.

84'

Yellow Card

Gary O'Neill is booked for UCD.

82'

OFFSIDE!

Mountey's effort is parried by Sheridan and Kelly's blushes are spared as the flag denies him a glaring miss.

81'

Substitution

Sean Gannon replaces Jordan Flores for Dundalk.

79'

Cleary outwitted by Mahdy, when nothing seemed on, close to goal and the number 9 poked to the net to give The Students a lifeline. Poor goal to concede.

79'

GOAL!

Yousef Mahdy scores for UCD.

79'

GOAL!

Conor Davis scores for UCD.

78'

Lotefa, Massey and Moutney linking up well down the DUndalk left to fashion a chance for Georgie Kelly but he rolls an effort into the palms of Sheridan who has been underworked this half.

75'

Tepid would be the best way to describe the second half so far. Both teams misfiring with crosses having worked themselves into good positions.

72'

Substitution

Chris Shields replaces Dean Jarvis for Dundalk.

69'

OFFISDE!
 

Not for the first time tonight Georgie Kelly has fallen foul of the assistant's flag- this time following an incisive pass from Gartland left him in the clear.

66'

There's a touch of class about RIchie O'Farrell- he danced inside two challenges before finding Mahdy, whose effort was well held by McCarey.

 

 

62'

Yellow Card

Dan Tobin is booked for UCD.

60'

Booming quick kickout from McCarey which finds Georgie Kelly but the ex UCD man was outmuscled by Josh Collins and the Students escape conceding a third. 

 

 

55'

Kelly this time does get a shot off- straight at Sheridan though and the gap stays at two so far. Very little from UCD so far this half as Dundalk start bringing little patterns to their play.

53'

Josh Collins stretches to head Dylan Hand's cross out for a corner which UCD only clear to the feet of John Mountney and, he fired over.

Hand again with a pass intercepted on the edge of glory- this time nicked off the feet of Georgie Kelly

48'

Hand, nominally a centre back, slots in at right back for the impressive Dummigan while Lotefa continues in a wide left role with Mountey occupying the 10 position.

46'

Substitution

Dylan Hand replaces Cameron Dummigan for Dundalk.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Dundalk and UCD has started.

45' + 1'

Dundalk in control for most of this half but they're still indebted to their keeper for two great saves, both off the boot of his own players! 

Collie O'Neill will not feel his side are totally out of the game yet but they need an early goal to really make a fist of this second half.

45' + 1'

Half Time

It is half-time between Dundalk and UCD.

41'

UCD have appeared to change to a 3-4-3 with Tobin, Scales and Collins then O'Farrell, Doyle, O'Neill and Dignam with McClelland, Mahdy and Davis completing the lines. 

40'

Substitution

Mark Dignam replaces Sean McDonald for UCD.

39'

Pedestrian few minutes here as UCD play a few nice patterns but ultimately fail to threaten.

32'

CROSSBAR!

John Mountney rattles the bar after Dane Massey stood up a wonderful cross to the back post. Unlucky!

27'

LIQUID FOOTBALL!!

Georgie Kelly with a beautiful pass to Lido Lotefa who cut inside to hammer a first time effort off the post with Sheridan rooted to the spot.

22'

Yellow Card

Daniel Cleary is booked for Dundalk.

21'

Dan Kelly with a shot on goal saved by McCarey. Yes you read that correctly- the winger was tracking back and thumped the ball off the UCD attacker- towards his own net.

18'

GOAL!

John Mountney scores for Dundalk.

18'

A through ball carved open the UCD backline. Dummigan, a moment after threading a beauty to Mountney, repeated the trick and this time the Mayoman was in an acre of space to advance and thump the ball beyond the exposed Sheridan.

17'

GOAL!

John Mountney scores for Dundalk.

16'

Yellow Card

Paul Doyle is booked for UCD.

14'

SAVE!!!!

Aaron McCarey stretched to tip over a deflected looping effort from Paul Doyle following a great break by Jason McClelland. Great stop from the former Monaghan Utd stopper.

11'

The rain has eased here as Dundalk search for a second. UCD are still dangerous on the break but Dundalk are equal so far. 

7'

GOAL!

Brian Gartland scores for Dundalk.

7'

Gartland thumps in Mountney's right wing corner for his first goal of the season. 

7'

GOAL!

Brian Gartland scores for Dundalk.

5'

Change to the UCD starting lineup as Dara Keane appears not to be playing but Sean McDonald is! 

UCD with almost a 4-3-3 when pushing up high.

2'

Early effort from Seán McDonald, who is listed on the bench! Jarvis had his pocket picked and McCarey did well to save.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Dundalk and UCD has kicked off.

0'

Five minutes before kick off here and we've a decent crowd for a Monday Cup game. It's starting to rain as Bob Marley blares out 'Every little thing's gonna be alright'. Maybe it is, but it'll also be soaked.

0'

For Dundalk it's another Cup appearance for Aaron McCarey while Dane Massey, Brian Gartland, Dan Cleary and Cameron Dummigan make up a strong back four.

 

Midfield is a combination of Flores, Mountney, Jarvis and Dan Kelly while Georgie Kelly and Lido Lotefa will link up front.

 

For UCD it's Gavin Sheridan who replaces U21 call up Conor Kearns between the sticks. They too have a strong defence with Dan Tobin, Liam Scales, Josh Collins, Paul Doyle and Richie O'Farrell starting. Gary O'Neill, who opened the scoring here in the last Oriel Park Cup meeting between the sides, captains from midifeld alongside Dara Keane and Jason McClelland while Mahdy and Conor Davis will link up front.
