93'

FULL TIME!

Pats ease to victory. 22nd consecutive league defeat for Galway, while Pats remain six points off the summit. Next game for them though, league leaders Shamrock Rovers on Monday September 12th!

90'
Three minutes injury time here

81'

GOAL!

I know what will be on the good, bad and the ugly on MNS this week (if it's on this week says Stuey Byrne beside me!), Paul Sinnott's long range goal! Sinnott's harmless long range effort seems destined to be easily saved by Gary Rogers' but he fluffs it and it goes through his gloves and into the corner of the net. Goal for Galway

80'

GOAL!

That's a way to make an entrance! Seán O'Connor tries to beat a few Galway players in search of his hat-trick, but as the ball falls away from him, Paul Crowley gets a sharp shot in to make it six for the Saints

78'

Substitution

Pats Sub - Stephen Bradley is being given an early rest here by Pete Mahon, Paul Crowley is on to replace the former Arsenal youth player

76'

GOAL!

Seán O'Connor releases Danny North, who somehow finds himself in acres of space on the right, and he shoots from the angle of the box in off the post to make it a fantastic five for the Saints

75'
Bobby Ryan gets an effort on goal, but it goes comfortably wide of Gary Rogers' left hand post

73'
Good effort by Dave McMillan, he latched onto the ball, controls, turns and shoots well but sees his effort go straight at Conor Winn in the Galway goal

72'
Game has sadly gone a bit dead here, the changes that Pats made at the break have led to them take their foot off the pedal here. In reality, they should be looking to add to their goal tally, but you just feel now that they're happy to let the clock run out here.

67'

Yellow Card

Crunching tackle by Seán Stewart on Yob Son, looked like he got some of the ball, but Graham Kelly still gives a free and Stewart is also the first to get a card tonight

65'

Substitution

Galway Sub - Eduardo Dusi comes on to replace Ronan Cauldwell, who has run his legs off up front but got no service.

60'
Galway, having already conceded four, are naturally very clumsy at the back, and Eric Browne is perhaps a little lucky not to have given away a penalty for a challenge on Dave McMillan in the box. Referee Graham Kelly waves away any claims for the spot-kick

59'
Dave McMillan flicks the ball through for Danny North, but the striker snatches at his shot and it goes wide of Conor Winn's goal

58'
Stephen Bradley's ball in finds Dave McMillan at the back post, but after controlling the ball, his shot is blocked

58'
Ian Bermingham gets down the left flank well once more tonight, but his cross is well headed away by Eric Brown. Corner to Pats...

56'

Substitution

Galway Sub - Oscar Sibanda replaces Jin Gu Kim.

55'
Stephen Walsh zips in a great corner from the right but Eric Brown's flick on fails to find the target and Conor Kenna scrambles the ball away

53'
Galway win a free on the right, and Jin Gu Kim puts in an excellent delivery, but Evan McMillan heads away under pressure

51'
Good effort again from Galway United, this time from Stephen Walsh. He takes on Derek Pender, before firing his effort just over Gary Rogers' crossbar. Slow start to the second half from Pats

48'
Good effort by Alan Murphy, his long range shot from around 25 yards out goes a few yards wide of Gary Rogers' right hand post - good technique to keep it down, but just off target

47'
Seán O'Connor looks to find the run of Seán Stewart, but the ball is behind the new man in and the ball rolls through to Conor Winn

46'

Substitution

Pats double Sub - Dave McMillan replaces Derek Doyle, and Seán Stewart comes on for Daryl Kavanagh.

46'

Second Half

'Celebrities' at the game tonight include Presidential hopeful Gay Mitchel of Fine Gael, and former Pats legend, Stuey Byrne. Less of that though, Graham Kelly gets us back underway for the second half!

45'

Half Time

Graham Kelly blows his whistle, Pats lead by four at the break

45'
1 minute added time here in Richmond Park

44'
Evan McMillan hangs his head in shame as he's just put Derek Pender's inch perfect cross wide from about 3 yards.

41'

GOAL!

Stephen Bradley's ball over the top picks out Daryl Kavanagh who gets in behind and sets up Seán O'Connor for a tap in, which goes in off the underside of the crossbar. 4-0 to Pats - this is getting embarrassing.

39'
Danny North should have another, ball falls to him in the box and he fires it across goal and wide

37'

GOAL!

How do you make up for missing a chance just seconds earlier? Score a screamer from inside the box! Danny North gets onto the loose ball after Galway fail to clear the properly, and North fires the ball into the top right hand corner of Conor Winn's net. How many will Pats score tonight?

36'
Good one-two by Danny North and Daryl Kavanagh, and when put through one on one on goal, North sees his shot well saved by Conor Winn who does well to get down low

33'
Alan Murphy gets into a good position on the edge of the Pats box, but his shot is always rising above Gary Rogers' crossbar

32'
Ball into the Pats box ends with Derek Pender clearing, though Galway thought he may have handled the ball as it was cleared - Seán Connor on the sideline definitely thinks his side should've had a penalty!

31'
Late tackle by Shane McFaul on Alan Murphy of Galway, perhaps a little lucky not to get a yellow for a tackle that was showing studs

28'
Chance for Galway, Gary Kelly works a bit of space for himself and forces Gary Rogers into making a save - comfortable for the keeper but a positive bit of play from Galway. Can they build on that?

27'
Stephen Bradley picks out the forward run of Danny North, he holds the ball up before laying it off to Seán O'Connor who gets a show on goal, but Conor Winn is behind it all the way

22'
Galway get the ball in a wide position, and Bobby Ryan's attempted cross by hooking the ball over his head ends up on the roof of Gary Rogers' net. No worries for the Meath born keeper

19'
Stephen Walsh prevents a certain goal for Pats, after superb build up play from Ian Bermingham, Danny North and Seán O'Connor down the left, Bermingham's pull-back destined for Derek Doyle to tap in is cleared by the backtracking Walsh for a corner

17'
The passing and movement of Danny North, Daryl Kavanagh and Seán O'Connor is very impressive tonight, they're all small players so they have to keep the ball on the ground and they are doing so in nice fashion

15'
Tough to see Galway getting back into this now, they had conceded 10 goals against Pats before tonight, so you'd think Pats have more in them

14'

PENALTY SCORED!

GOAL! Stephen Bradley puts the penalty away - Yob Son with the handball from the corner, Pats looking good now

14'
Stephen Bradley to take...

13'
AND IT'S A PENALTY TO PATS!

13'
Corner to Pats, Stephen Bradley winning the set-piece off Bobby Ryan...

11'
Kavanagh and North combine again - this time the ex-Waterford man puts North in on goal, but his shot is well saved by Conor Winn well who comes off his line quickly and spreads himself well to block it

9'
Seán O'Connor picks out the run of Ian Bermingham, his cross though is cut out by Eric Brown - crucial clearance as Danny North was waiting to pounce and score

8'
Rhona Daly's flag isn't working properly! It needs to be changed! Ask Danny North though, he probably thinks it wasn't working a few minutes ago when he was deemed to have been offside by Ms. Daly!

6'
Pats looking to play some good stuff here, good build up play involving Stephen Bradley, Danny North and O'Connor ends with North being put through, but he just mistimes his run and is caught offside

3'
Galway go close to equalising almost immediately, Ronan Cauldwell's shot on the edge of the area making Gary Rogers scramble across his goal

2'

GOAL!

What a start for Pats! Danny North links up with Daryl Kavanagh, who plays it right to Seán O'Connor who finishes past Conor Winn. This could be a long night for Galway!

1'

GAME ON!

Graham Kelly gets us underway in Richmond Park!
