94'

FULL TIME!

All over here in Flancare. An invaluable win for Shelbourne. But the Town will be cursing the goalkeeping error that proved oh so costly.

90'

Yellow Card

Philip Byrne is booked for the home side.

89'

GOAL!

Disaster for Longford!!! Town keeper, Stephen Conlon, has made a huge faux pas and Shels have taken the lead. Conlon came racing out for a ball he was never going to get and Mark Leech took the ball around him and scored.

87'
Marc Hughes has a chance to put his side in front but Stephen Conlon makes a great save, touching the striker's header onto the crossbar.

85'

Substitution

Town make their final change: Lee Roche on for his younger brother Aiden

84'

GOAL!

Shels equalise. Sean Byrne breaks down the wing, crosses to Marc Hughes, and he makes no mistake from close range. It's no more than they deserved.

77'
Shiels powerful effort from the edge of the box has been blocked by a Town defender (thanks to the pole in Flancare we couldn't see who it was)

76'

Yellow Card

Another Shels player gets booked. This time it's Ray Scully

74'

Substitution

Longford Sub - Don Cowan is on for Dave Freeman.

68'

GOAL!

The deadlock has been broken here. Victor Ekanem fires past Steve Williams to give the Town the lead.

67'

Substitution

Shels make their last change - Colin O'Brien is in for David McGill.

65'
A roar goes up in Flancare from the Shels fans as the full-time result in Salthill is announced. With Waterford dropping points, is it time for Shels to seize the iniative now?

62'

Substitution

Town make their first substitution. Victor Ekanem is on for Craig Walsh.

57'
Absolutely nothing happening here in Flancare. The last 10 minutes or so of the first half produced some good chances but the second half has failed to liven up at all

46'

Substitution

Shels make their second change at half time - Mark Leech has come on for Dinny Corcoran.

46'

Second Half

Here we go again... any chance of a goal?

45'

Half Time

Half time at Flancare Park and it's still scoreless.

41'
Dave Freeman should've given Town the lead here but his effort came off the upright. Phew!!

39'

Substitution

Steve Williams on for the injured Delaney

39'
Game held up here. Stretcher being called on for Shels keeper Dean Delaney after a clash with a Town player. Must've hurt himself when he landed. We all took our eye off the ball here..

35'
Town fail to do anything with the free that was awarded. Craig Walsh's effort sails into Dean Delaney's hands.

34'

Yellow Card

Another yellow card this time for Shels' Paul Shiels.

32'
Another glorious chance for Shels who have really began to get on top of this game. McGill's cross from the right met the head of Corcoran who blasted his effort wide.

29'

Yellow Card

Town defender Chris Deans earns himself a yellow card for a blatant foul on Marc Hughes. Then he has to go and protest!

23'
Another chance for the visitors. Paul Shiels played a perfect crossfield ball over to David McGill, he turned Town full-back Chris Deans but his curling shot just went over.

21'
This game is very poor. Waiting on something to bring it to life.

17'

Yellow Card

Michael Coburn gets his name in the referee's book.

14'
Town keeper Conlon makes a mess when coming for a ball ahead of Shels striker Mark Hughes. Lucky the ball bounced out for a corner.

7'
Shels have their first chance on goal. Foley plays in Shiels and Town keeper Conlon makes a good save with his feet.

3'

Yellow Card

Former Town defender Stephen Paisley gets a yellow card for a foul on Cathal Brady

0'
Still waiting for teams here.
