FULL TIME!

Full time at the Tallaght stadium, with a fairly comfortable win for Rovers over a willing but limited Waterford side. Onto the big kick off next week for the two teams.

85'
Waterford look a beaten team here, Rovers look more likely to add to the goals tonight.

83'

Substitution

5th and 6th substitution for Waterford, Brian Nolan and keeper Josh Byrne on.

75'

Yellow Card

Shane Dempsey goes into the book for Waterford for a late tackle on Ronan Finn.

72'

Substitution

3 substitutions for Rovers with Paddy Kavanagh, Stephen O'Donnell and Akeem Priestley coming on.

68'
Another Waterford penalty appeal is turned down, what looks like a handball by Dan Murray to most in the ground but the referee turns it away again. Waterford could be right in this game if one of these decisions had gone their way.

65'
A chance for Rovers to get their 3rd, with Omans header on to Dennehy presenting the striker with a great chance that he manages to sky over. A let off for Waterford.

62'

Substitution

Substitution for Waterford with Dwayne Wilson coming on for Paul Murphy.

56'
Controversial decision by referee Neil Doyle when he turns down what looked like a stonewall penalty for Waterford when Murphy is fouled in the Rovers box.

53'
Waterford have a half chance, with substitute Willy John Kiely having a shot inside the box that's comfortably dealt with by Mannus.

49'

GOAL!

A second for Rovers, with Twigg played through one on one with the keeper and he makes no mistake in placing his shot. A terrible start to the second half for Waterford.

47'
Dempsey has an effort for Waterford which is well met by Mannus in the Rovers goal.

46'

Second Half

And we're off again. Waterford will be looking to get a result here, while Rovers will want to put the game to bed in what is both teams final friendly before the kick off next week.

45'

Half Time

Half time here in Tallaght, with Rovers one up.

40'
5 minutes till halftime here, and Waterford are struggling to get back into the game after that McCabe strike.

35'

GOAL!

Goal for Rovers! Gary McCabe has a go from 25 yards out, and the ball sails over Burns in the Waterford goal who was caught off his line. Good strike from McCabe.

31'
Rovers come close again, with Gary Twigg's turn and volley from outside the box tipped over by Burns for a corner. Again the corner is cleared by Waterford.

29'
Nearly the breakthrough for Rovers, McCabe cross met by Dennehy's shot expertly pushed away for a corner by Kevin Burn's. The resulting corner yields no reward for Rovers.

Break for Rovers, with Sheppard played through by McCabe. However Waterfords defence recovers well and its cleared for a corner thats wasted.

Waterford break, with Paul Murphy beating one defender before playing in Gary Dunphy who's shot is parried away for a corner by Alan Mannus.
