FULL TIME!

All over at Tallaght and it finishes 4-1 to Rovers.

78'

Substitution

Rovers Sub - Robert Bayly comes on for Stephen Bradley.

77'

GOAL!

4-1 to Rovers as Dan Murray smacks a header in off the underside of the bar following a Dennehy cross.

65'

Substitution

Rovers Sub - Pat Flynn replaces Thomas Stewart.

63'

GOAL!

A magnificent goal from Rovers. Neale Fenn feeds Billy Dennehy who chased the ball to the corner then flung a cross deep into the box where Gary Twigg met it with an emphatic header. 3-1

52'

Substitution

UCD Sub - Robbie Creevy comes on for Karl Moore. Creevy goes straight to right back to fill in for the now showering Shortall.

49'

Red Card

Billy Dennehy has just been cleaned out by a very late Brian Shortall tackle. And... yup, he's off. The students are down to ten men. Dennehy is up, but groggy.

46'

Substitution

Both sides make a change at half time. Rovers Sub - Neale Fenn comes on for Paddy Kavanagh....

46'

Substitution

... UCD Sub - Michael Leahy replaces Evan McMillan.

46'

Second Half

The second half is underway at Tallaght.

45'
Two minutes of added time at Tallaght.

45'

Half Time

Rovers lead going into the break.

43'

GOAL!

What a goal from Billy Dennehy! Fed by Bradley inside his own half, he ran at the UCD defence for all of thirty yards before ripping a shot over Ger Barron's head and into the far top corner of the goal. Did he mean it? Carlsberg don't do crosses, but if they did...

35'

Yellow Card

A booking for Billy Dennehy for a late challenge. He courts a red by engaging in a lengthy debate about it with ref, Neil Doyle.

34'
UCD under savage pressure since the goal. Tommy Stewart has just seen his shot from 12 yards curl away from the top right corner of the UCD net at the last moment.

26'

GOAL!

Yeah, scratch that, UCD have just equalised. Dan Murray lost the ball and Ciaran Kilduff worked hard to get a shot in that was deflected wickedly over Alan Mannus and in.

23'
A James Chambers free kick comes curling into the UCD box and Aiden Price flicks his head at it, only just failing to make contact. There's another goal coming for Rovers.

18'
Great save from Ger Barron as Kavanagh sets up Twigg for a shot to the near post.

17'

Yellow Card

UCD debutant David O'Connor is booked.

15'
15 minutes gone and Gary Twigg looks dangerously quiet, even dropping deep to try and get more of the ball.

11'
A period of pressure for Rovers as Bradley puts Thomas Stewart in with a lovely diagonal ball but Evan McMillan blocks. As the ball comes back into the box Andy Boyle blocks another Bradley cross. Moments later Boyle has to make a timely interception to deny Paddy Kavanagh.

8'
Paul O'Conor shoots from 30 yards and Alan Manus has to tip it over the bar for a corner that came to nothing. Great shot from the UCD midfielder.

5'

GOAL!

Greg Bolger caught in possession 30 yards out by Stephen Bradley who stepped forwards and passed the ball past Barron and into the net. 1-0 Rovers.

2'
The first attack comes from Rovers courtesy of a mazy Billy Dennehy run. His cross was headed weakly by Kavanagh and Barron collects.

0'
One hour til kick-off at Tallaght. No team news yet though Greg Bolger is expected to start for the students as he returns from suspension. Rumour has it that David O'Connor will make his league debut for UCD at left back in place of Ciaran Nangle.

0'
UCD could do with three points tonight to haul themselves out of the relegation play-off places while Rovers can go eight points clear at the top if they get the points and results go their way elsewhere.

0'
The teams are in. Twigg, Bradley and Murray all overcome knocks to start for Rovers. Newcomer Karl Moore starts for UCD having served a 5 year apprenticeship at Manchester City, including a loan spell at Millwall before signing for Martin Russell's side.

0'
Half an hour to go at Tallaght. It's a little bit breezy here but there's bright sunshine.

0'
The teams are out here and we're nearly ready to go.
