93'

FULL TIME!

It's all over, and you'd be hard pressed to find a match as one-sided as this.

92'
Paul Skinner at last makes his first save.

90'
Scully's low shot is saved, and 3 minutes added time announced here.

88'
Still Shels are not letting up. Ray Scully's cross almost found Bermingham in close there, but Duncan got to it well in time.

84'

Substitution

Shane Murphy on for Nicky Cosgrove.

83'
Phily Hughes close again- just over though after a fine run.

81'
Completely one sided here, in case you hadn't guessed. Carlow haven't even had a half chance.

79'
Attendance of 239 announced.

78'

GOAL!

WHAT A STRIKE! Phily Hughes from another free-kick- this time from all of 30 yards!

74'

GOAL!

And from the resulting free it's a goal! Lorcan Fitzgerald whacks it in!

74'

Red Card

James Cogley sent off after fouling Shels' Chris Mulhall at the end of his own box.

71'

Substitution

Brendan McGill off for Philip Hughes, and Carlow take off Liam Phelan and Gary Smith for John Brennan and JJ Connelly.

67'

Substitution

Shels take off Stephen Paisley, who has had a fine match, for David McGill.

64'
Brendan McGill forces the latest in a string of fine saves from Carlow 'keeper Kevin Duncan. McGill ran after intercepting a loose pass and shot low at goal.

63'
Carlow really not getting a look in here. Even when they have the ball, they play long balls and their forwards are too slow to chase after it.

61'

Substitution

Shels bring on Sean Byrne for Gareth Matthews.

60'
Scully and Bermingham again linking up well- Bermingham crossing for Sullivan in the end- his header deflected wide.

58'
Ray Scully and Karl Bermingham playing a nice 1-2, but Bermingham's shot was inches wide in the end.

56'

Yellow Card

Brendan McGill booked for taking a free before the ref blew for it, we think.

53'
Gareth Matthews and Colm James linking up well down the right here, playing a ball in for Bermingham then, whose shot deflected and went high for Carlow keeper Duncan to claim.

49'
Lorcan Fitzgerald crossed, it took a deflection off a defender and fell for Scully to head in at the near post.

49'

GOAL!

Ray Scully for Shels!

46'

Second Half

We are back on here!

45'

Half Time

We've hit the interval, and Shels lead by a goal.

45'
Shels free yards outside the Carlow box... Fitzgerald forces a corner with a low shot. Brendan McGill takes the corner, it comes to Ryan and he blasts it in for 1-0.

44'

GOAL!

GOAL FOR SHELS! Ian Ryan!

42'
Carlow gave the ball away easily in their own half to Colm James there, who played a searching ball for Brendan McGill. His shot was over the crossbar though.

39'
Great chance for John Sullivan there- the former Limerick man shooting just over with a deadly-looking shot from the edge of the Carlow box.

35'
Shels able to withstand the little bit of Carlovian pressure there. they gave the ball away too easy to Grzegorz Sykula though. He passed for Smith, but Shels cleared it away.

33'
Stephen Paisley surges up from defence and forces a corner, it's taken short and eventually cleared after a Shels foul.

27'
SUPER SAVE FROM DUNCAN! Chris Mulhall won it for Shels, ran and passed for Lorcan Fitzgeralf who was through on goal, and Duncan made a great one-on-one save with his legs to deny a goal.

24'
Lorcan Fitzgerald passes for Brendan McGill, who crosses for Bermingham... wide!

22'
Karl Bermingham there with the best chance oif the game so far- the ball went to him from a Shels free and his shot was cleared off the line by Shane Clarke. He followed up with another fine chance- just cleared by the feet of Duncan.

17'
Carlow at last have some decent possession- Emmet Phelan working well down the wing- but his final cross was lacking. Shels then went right back up the pitch, where Ray Scully was deemed to have jumped unfairly with Kevin Duncan.

14'
Another nice move from Shels, this time down the right- but again Bermingham was unable to make anything of it. Duncan dived at his feet just as he tried to round the Carlow keeper.

12'
Nice passing move from Shels. Ray Scully and Brendan McGill combining well down the left but the final ball from McGill was hit too hard for Karl Bermingham.

9'
Chris Mulhall grazes the Carlow crossbar with a looping shot after another Shels corner.

7'
John Sullivan shoots on the rebound and forces a corner, which is subsequently cleared. Shels in control so far.

5'
Shels corner in, met by the head of Stephen Paisley but well over.

2'
Carlow put some early pressure on, but Shels regain the ball and Fitzgerald plays a long ball for Mulhall to run after. Too far for him though.

1'

GAME ON!

And we are go! Carlow in black with red trim, Shels in traditional red and white.

0'
Ray Scully back in the team for Shels after suspension, and Sean Byrne could make his first appearance this season- he's on the bench after his injury layoff kept him out of the first 5 matches this season.

0'
FC Carlow: Kevin Duncan; Shane Clarke, James Cogley, Eanna O'Gorman, Christopher Browne, Neale Phelan, Nicky Cosgrave, Emmet Phelan, Grzegorz Sykula, Craig Hore, Gary Smith SUBS: Stephen Duncan, JJ Connelly, Shane Murphy, John Brennan.

0'
It's Niall Farrell here in Tolka Park for FC Carlow's 'home' match against Shelbourne. Carlow forced Monaghan to a replay last year in the FAI Cup, can they do a similar job tonight against a highly fancied Shels side- still unbeaten in all competitions. The teams are in, and just be with you soon.
