FULL TIME!

Match report to come shortly by Extratime reporter Ray Denning

95'

FULL TIME!

Pats players surround referee Derek Tomney after the whistle, resulting in Pete Mahon running onto the pitch and drag his players away - good management, but the Saints have still dropped two points here and are four points off the top of the league now. For UCD, they've earned a great point here, and hard to argue they didn't deserve it for the good football they played - but no doubt about it, Pats have dropped two points here

95'

FULL TIME!

We're into the fifth minute of added time now, and the referee only adds on another 30 seconds for the two red cards in injury time. Game finishes 2-2

94'

Red Card

Free to Pats, 30 yards out, everyone into the box for Pete Mahon's side. Shane McFaul takes the free quickly, but is pulled back for taking it without the permission of referee Tomney, and is given a second booking and sent off! Strange end to this one

92'

Red Card

... and then applauds referee Derek Tomney for the yellow. Stupid move, as Tomney produces a second yellow and sends off Meenan!

92'

Yellow Card

Darren Meenan is booked for an off the ball incident

90'
Neil Doyle signals FIVE minutes injury time - enough time left for a winner

89'
Darren Meenan bursts forward, and he wins a corner after his cross comes off Derek Pender. The corner is over hit, but when it is delivered back into the box, Graham Rusk heads just over the bar - great chance goes abegging

88'
Mick Leahy bursts forward from the back, and his cross looks destined to find Seán Russell, but Dave Mulcahy gets back in time to clear the ball

87'
This would be the second time the Saints have blown a two goal lead at home if they don't find a winner in the final few minutes. March 11th, the Saints led Bray Wanderers by two only to eventually lose 3-2

86'
From the resulting corner, Danny Ledwith finds the head of Mick Leahy and his header drifts just wide

85'
UCD play the ball around nicely, Danny Ledwith knocking it around nicely in a central position, before Paul O'Conor's shot is tipped wide by Bennion

85'
5 minutes left here, and it could still go either way

84'

Substitution

Paul Corry off, Danny Ledwith on.

83'
Paul Crowley is played through by Dave McMillan, and as he competes for the ball with Ger Barron, he lifts the ball over the keeper and the ball goes just wide of the post - however referee Derek Tomney signalled that Crowley fouled Barron by lifting his foot up to challenge for the 50-50 ball - Saints fans not happy

80'
"Keep the ball moving." That's the instruction by Martin Russell to his UCD side, and they are trying to do that - no doubt about it but some of the Saints players are feeling that bit of tiredness in their legs following their midweek defeat to Karpaty Lviv in Europe

79'
Dave McMillan wins a free in the UCD half, takes it quickly and finds the run of Derek Doyle. However despite getting to the ball first, he's robbed by Seán Harding and UCD come forward

78'
Pats get the ball into the box, and UCD panic for a second, before clearing the ball.

77'
Derek Pender makes a great run forward from his right full-back position, Ger Barron comes out to clear the ball. Home support claim a penalty, would've been a very early Christmas present if given

76'
UCD trying to force the issue here, Paul O'Conor looking to play it wide to Ciarán Nangle but the ball goes out of play

73'
Pats fans not happy here, UCD were playing well before and were two down, but that poor back pass from Conor Kenna and red card for Gary Rogers has really turned things around here. Pats have made all their substitutions as well so the players out there will have to turn this around if the home side is to win it. But it's UCD on top right now

71'

GOAL!

AND WE'RE LEVEL! Seán Harding's great run forward, ends in a cross to the far post and the onrushing Graham Rusk heads past Bennion. UCD to win it now?

70'

PENALTY SCORED!

Dean Marshall steps up to take the penalty, and he scores sending Bennion the wrong way

68'

Substitution

Chris Bennion to come on here, and he will face a penalty immediately. Will he be a hero, or will his first duty be to pick the ball out of the net? Seán O'Connor comes off, good debut for him

67'

Red Card

Conor Kenna plays a poor backpass, and Darren Meenan is onto it in a flash, he is upended by Gary Rogers, and Derek Tomney has no option but to produce a red card. Penalty to UCD...

66'
Jake Carroll and Gary Rogers could have dealt with that better as a bit of miscommunication leads to Carroll conceding a corner. The ball in from Corry finds the head of Mick Leahy, but the UCD skipper concedes a free

65'

Substitution

Robbie Creevy comes off, and he's replaced by Seán Russell

64'
Ciarán Nangle's cross finds Paul O'Conor on the edge of the box, but Jake Carroll just steps in in time to block his shot, and then close Paul Corry on the rebound to force the midfielder into shooting wide

63'
Mick Leahy fails to deal with a cross into the UCD box, and the ball falls to former UCD winger Derek Doyle, but the Pats man gets his volley all wrong and it goes well wide

62'
Dean Marshall steps inside Derek Pender, but his ball into the box goes over Rusk and falls for Gary Rogers to gather unopposed

61'
Conor Kenna really is having a fine game for the Saints. Staying tight to Graham Rusk, but not giving away any frees, good play as he robs Rusk of possession, and then earns a free

59'
David O'Connor strides out of the back four unchallenged, but his 30+ yard effort goes aimlessly over the goal

58'
Pat's fans not happy with a few calls by referee Derek Tomney here, but they can be happy with the scoreline

55'
Seán Harding's well hit free strikes the Pats wall

55'

Yellow Card

Not long in the game, Shane McFaul picks up a card for a rash challenge on Paul Corry

54'
From the resulting corner, Paul Corry's ball in goes over everyone and Evan McMillan sees the ball roll out for a goal-kick

53'
Dean Marshall is fouled by Derek Pender, free to UCD - which Gary Rogers is forced to come off his line and fist away for a corner

52'
Derek Doyle's crossfield ball tries to find Mulcahy, but he can only head the ball on to Barron in the UCD goal

50'
Robbie Creevy's overhead kick in the box goes wide, Gary Rogers goal under no threat

48'
Dave McMillan sees two chances saved by Ger Barron, the first after being set-up by Jake Carroll, the second after a Paul O'Conor clearance fell at the strikers feet. Barron down low twice to deny the forward his second goal of the game

47'
Derek Doyle flashes a shot wide of Ger Barron's left post

46'

Substitution

And indeed, a change for Pats. Shane McFaul is on for Daryl Kavanagh

46'

Second Half

Derek Tomney blows his whistle and UCD resume the game

46'

Half Time

Bit of movement from both UCD and Pats here at half-time, there could be some changes for both sides at the start of the second half

46'

Half Time

Derek Tomney blows his whistle to signal half-time, and the Saints somehow lead here 2-0. Harsh on UCD, but they failed to take their chances, and Dave McMillan's wonder strike has really made UCD to look poor now

45'
1 minute added time here

44'

GOAL!

Goal of the season?! Dave McMillan gets into his feet after Derek Doyle robs Seán Harding of possession, and he strikes the ball from around 30 yards out over Ger Barron into the top corner - magic

40'

Substitution

Stephen Bradley has been a passenger for the past 20 minutes, he's replaced by Paul Crowley. Bradley's gone straight down the tunnel, presumably not full recovered from the hamstring injury sustained in the midweek defeat to Karpaty

40'
Free to Pats, Seán O'Connor swings it in but Derek Doyle's header is wide of the target

39'
Conor Kenna heads the ball in the direction of Jake Carroll, and he is forced into a 50-50 challenge for the ball with Darren Meenan in the air, the full-back wins a free after Meenan backs into him - he won't thank his captain for the ball to him though!

38'
Relief for Pete Mahon's side, they win a free out. How are UCD not level by now!?!

38'
Rogers has to come off his line to tip away another dangerous ball into the box, corner to the Students

37'
Ball into the box finds Paul O'Conor, but Rogers tips his well struck volley over the bar, corner to UCD

36'
And again... Seán Harding breaks forward from his right back position, gets by Kenna, but sees his shot blocked by Evan McMillan, and then Rusk's follow up is somehow saved by Rogers

35'
Dean Marshall's cross is knocked down by Robbie Creevy to Graham Rusk, but his shot on goal is headed off the line by Evan McMilan, UCD all over the Saints like was previously stated

34'
UCD enjoying the majority of the possession now, Pats are pinned back into their own half

31'
UCD all over the Saints. Seán Harding plays the ball down the line for Darren Meenan, and despite being in space and having time, the winger fails to pull the ball back to a teammate. UCD lacking that bit of quality in the final third

30'
Darren Meenan's free is headed away by Evan McMillan, corner to UCD

29'
The resulting corner is again headed away by Kenna - the captain is really playing well here, especially when the Saints need him as they've dropped off here in the last 10 minutes

28'
Free to UCD, Corry inswinger and it causes havoc in the box, Kenna heads away

26'
Another chance for Rusk, Seán Harding's cross finds the forwards head but his effort goes just wide of the far post. Before that, Dean Marshall's cross from the left was well headed away by Conor Kenna - who is having a solid game for the Saints after his long spell on the sidelines

25'
Midfield three of Paul Corry, Robbie Creevy and Paul O'Conor really do knock the ball around well, UCD putting the Saints under pressure

22'
Miss of the season? UCD play through the middle of the Saints midfield, Creevy playing the ball wide to the onrushing Darren Meenan, he squares it centrally for Graham Rusk and with just a simple tap in required, he mis-hits the ball into Gary Rogers and Pats clear. What a let off

21'
Dave McMillan tries to knock the ball around Dave O'Connor on the sideline, but the defender is wise to it and plays the ball off the forward to earn a goalkick - good play from both players

19'
Pats are enjoying the majority of the possession, and are pushing for a second - but UCD are nevertheless looking dangerous when they come forward

17'
Ball harmlessly rolls along the ground into Ger Barron's hands - more of a pass back than a shot

17'
Free to Pats, central position, around 30 yards out. Seán O'Connor to take...

15'
Dave McMillan hits the post with his 25 yard strike, and from the resulting rebound, gets to the ball before Mick Leahy and appears to be upended, referee Derek Tomney signals neither a penalty or a dive - strange

14'
The early goal has really settled the home side, and they've shown real committment in the tackle and in their effort to close down UCD - no reason for the home support to be unhappy so far

13'
Paul Corry threads the ball through for Paul O'Conor, but his shot this time is weak, and is easy for Saints' keeper Rogers to deal with

12'
Long ball from Evan McMillan nearly finds Kavanagh, but Barron gathers the through ball

11'
Daryl Kavanagh caught offside for a second time, he's looking to play off the shoulder of Mick Leahy and the rest of the UCD defence today - could be trouble for UCD at some point today

10'
Paul O'Conor is sitting deep in midfield and looking to control things for UCD, however on one forray forward into the box, he gets a head to Seán Harding's cross, but he can only head weakly wide of the Saints' goal

9'
Creevy turns Stephen Bradley after receiving the ball from Seán Harding's throw-in, but his shot curls wide of Gary Rogers near post

8'
Jake Carroll, getting a rare start today, is really keen to impress and has been very sharp at left back for Pats, both going forward and in defensive positions

5'

GOAL!

What a way to start your second spell at Pats, Seán O'Connor opens the scoring. Stephen Bradley plays Jake Carroll down the left flank, he gets by Seán Harding, crosses for O'Connor at the back post, and he volleys past Ger Barron - great goal

3'
Darren Meenan plays Robbie Creevy through but just as he gets his shot off on goal, Evan McMillan comes across to block the effort, bright start for UCD

2'
Graham Rusk tries to find Dean Marshall on the far post but his cross runs out of play for a goalkick

1'

GAME ON!

And we're off!!

1'
Daryl Kavanagh caught offside early on, perfect playing conditions here at present with the pitch looking good too

0'
Teams coming out now, not long till kick-off

0'
For the Students, Martin Russell makes two changes; Darren Meenan and Graham Rusk return to the line-up having served their respective suspensions, Danny Ledwith drops to the bench while Samir Belhout sits the game out as he serves a one match ban.

0'
Pat's make three changes from the Lviv game; Jake Carroll, club captain Conor Kenna and new signing Seán O'Connor all come in for Ian Bermingham, Brian Shortall and Shane McFaul.

0'
