94'

FULL TIME!

A late mark Doninger flick on nearly wins it at the death for Sligo but the final whistle is blown just as the ball goes wide. Anthony Buttimer is booed off the pitch while the efforts of both sets of players is appreciated by the home fans. 2,858 is the official attendance here and so it's goodnight from the Showgrounds.

93'
Dennehy has a shot blocked by Alan Keane's head. Corner.

90'
There will be four minutes of added time.

89'

Yellow Card

Shams Billy Dennehy is booked late on.

89'

Substitution

Sligo make a final, late change - Dean Marshall is on for Gary McCabe.

88'
Mathew Blinkhorn nearly snatches it at the death for Sligo after a Gavin Peers long ball forward. His low hard shot was parried by Mannus who is playing very well.

84'

Substitution

Shams make another change - Ollie Cahill comes on for Graham Barrett.

84'
Billy Dennehy fires wide for Shamrock Rovers. This game could go either way.

80'

Yellow Card

Sligo's Eoin Doyle picks up a card for diving.

78'
Sligo are putting on the pressure, their midfield five are very dominant at the minute.

71'

Substitution

Sligo make a double substitution - Padraig Amond and Richie Ryan are both withdrawn while Mark Doninger and Conor O'Grady come on.

67'

Yellow Card

Sligo's Alan Keane is booked.

67'
James Chambers blasts a free over Sligo's crossbar.

66'

Substitution

Dessie Baker is off and Paddy Kavanagh comes on for Shamrock Rovers.

65'

PENALTY SCORED!

James Chambers converts the penalty, given for reasons that are unclear at the minute. The fifth flare of the evening is lit up by the Shamrock Rovers fans and it's game on here.

64'
Penalty to Shamrock Rovers... !!

61'

Yellow Card

Sligo's Gavin Peers sees yellow for hauling down Dessie Baker on the edge of the box.

57'

Substitution

Stephen Bradley is off and Dessie Baker is on for Shamrock Rovers. Bradley has been one of the Hoop's better players so it's a tad confusing as there are others playing way worse for the Tallaght side.

56'

Yellow Card

Sligo defender Paul Whelan is booked.

55'
Richie Ryan hits the crossbar after Gary McCabe stuck a cheeky square ball to him. Alan Mannus definitely got a touch and full credit must be given to the keeper, he was more than equal to Ryan's shot.

53'

Yellow Card

Sligo midfielder Richie Ryan sees yellow for a challenge on James Chambers. Ref Anthony Buttimer certainly is not a crowd pleaser in the slightest.

50'
A Mathew Blinkhorn cross nearly puts Podge Amond in at the back post. Shamrock Rovers have just wasted another ball as they put it out over the end-line.

46'

Second Half

And we're back up and running for the second half. Sligo seem much more composed and have gone close with a Danny Ventre header.

45'

Half Time

This game is settling down...finally. Half time, and Sligo will be glad to see the dressing room so they can regroup and get a grip on the game.

35'
Sligo's midfield have gone missing. They're sitting back on top of their centre backs inviting Shamrock Rovers onto them, and one feels that if it weren't for Gavin Peers and Richie Ryan, Sligo would be up a certain creek without a paddle.

33'
Mr Buttimer isn't being best received by the home crowd at the minute. Two appeals for handball have gone unanswered and sarcastic applause greets the award of a free kick. Yes, things never change.

26'
The lack of Gary Twigg from the Hoops line-up is obvious, as their attacks seems aimless. Shams have been living off long shots thus far. They have all the possession but they aren't making use of it.

22'

GOAL!

Eoin Doyle haunts his former club as he gets on the end of a Richie Ryan cross to put Sligo one up. The Showgrounds is in a state of ecstasy!

19'
End to end stuff here as both defenses have come to the rescue for both Rovers, Brush made a fantastic save one-on-one with Barrett while Murray stopped Blinkhorn from opening the scoring.

17'
Eoin Doyle picks out Blinkhorn with a fantastic through ball after Blinkhorn nodged it down to Doyle. The one two led to Blinkhorn being through one-on-one but at a tight angle. Blinkhorn lobbed it just over. Unfortunate.

15'
Danny Ventre scuffs a pass and gives it straight to Sean O'Connor, O'Connor shot low and hard, but was saved comfortably by Brush.

8'
Free to Sligo now form the edge of the box...

8'
And Doyle sticks it just under the crossbar, saved by Mannus.

5'
And the server is back up! You haven't missed much here, game was delayed and although Shamrock Rovers have been dominating, only one chance had fallen to Eoin Doyle for the Rovers of Sligo.
