93'

FULL TIME!

All over at the RSC. St. Pat's coast through to the quarter-finals of the FAI Cup at the expense of a poor Waterford team. Could have been more, but 3-0 it finishes. Thanks for following along, stay tuned to Extratime.ie for the match report and post-game reaction.

86'
"See you next season" says one downtrodden Blues fan as he heads for the exit. Ouch. This hasn't been good from the home side, they never really made life difficult for St. Pat's and the scoreline is a fair reflection of the Dublin side's dominance.

83'

Substitution

Waterford United substitution: Adam Heaslip comes on for Dwayne Wilson.

82'

Substitution

St. Pat's substitution: Goalscorer Stephen Bradley comes off, with Brian Shortall his replacement.

78'
It's been very quiet on the action front for much of this second half. St. Pat's are looking extremely comfortable and Waterford look more likely to concede again than score a goal of their own.

77'

Substitution

St. Pat's substitution: Sean Stewart comes on for Derek Doyle.

68'

Substitution

Waterford United substitution: Gary Keane leaves the field, to be replaced by Willie John Kiely.

66'

Substitution

St. Pat's substitution: Dave Mulcahy makes way for Paul Crowley.

65'
Paul Murphy has really been the only Waterford player who looks like he fits in at this level. The striker showing plenty of neat touches and clever passes in the final third.

58'
And now McFaul gets in on the act, clearing the crossbar by a distance with his unchallenged effort from just inside the area.

57'

Substitution

Waterford United substitution: Paul Walsh has picked up a knock and will be replaced by Sean Maguire.

56'
Derek Pender whips a low cross to Waterford's back post and Derek Doyle somehow fires over, despite being in space and only seven yards out.

55'
What a golazo that would have been! Paul Murphy takes an exquisite touch past two Pat's players in the centre of midfield  before unleashing a venomous strike from all of 35 yards which Rogers saves excellently.

52'
Official attendance tonight is 721; though it hasn't been pleasant viewing for the majority inside the ground.

48'

Yellow Card

Anthony Buttimer has had something of a nightmare with that decision. Browne was the last man and deliberately palmed the ball away from Kavanagh 10 yards from goal, yet he only receives a yellow. Waterford extremely fortunate to still have a full compliment of players.

47'

PENALTY SCORED!

Ridiculously soft goal to concede, and Waterford are heading out of this competition. Kenny Browne is the last man and attempts to beat Kavanagh rather than play the ball back to Burns. The forward steals the ball and knocks it past Browne who falls to the ground and slaps it away. Stephen Bradley steps up to slot home the penalty.

46'

Second Half

We're back underway at the RSC where the home side will need a tremendous performance in the second 45 if they are to prevent St. Pat's from progressing into the next round of the FAI Cup.

45'

Half Time

And there's the break. Frustration is certainly the overriding emotion amongst the home support here as they see their side head in at the half with everything to do if they are to progress in this competition. Pete Mahon will be delighted with his charges, all going to plan from a Pat's perspective.

44'
Almost at half-time here in Waterford. The home side have responded quite well to the devstating blow of conceding twice in three minutes, but still look incapable of regularly creating threatening opportunities. Pat's look comfortable and, with Kavanagh, look liable to score at any moment.

34'
Browne now underhits a lazy square pass straight into the path of Kavanagh. On a hat-trick, the striker advances on the retreating Waterford back-line before whipping an excellent strike narrowly wide of Burns' goal.

31'
A last-ditch Kenny Browne intervention is all that prevents Pat's from adding to their lead via a low cross from the right. The sun has completely disappeared here in Waterford; Mother Nature proving hereself adept at moments of poetic clarity.

26'
And breathe... This game exploded into life during the last ten minutes. An absolutely frantic pace has just about returned to normal (for now) as the home side attempt to gather their bearings and plot a course for recovery as they find themselves two goals behind.

23'
Waterford are inches from pulling a goal back as Dwayne Wilson gets free down the left flank before cutting inside and firing a low effort just past Gary Rogers' far post.

20'

GOAL!

A rapid-fire double! Kavanagh grabs his and his side's second, beating Kenny Browne and poking the ball beyond Burns at his near post.

17'

GOAL!

Breakthrough for the visitors. McFaul sends in a corner from the right which Evan McMillan meets with a header that draws a good low save from Kevin Burns. Waterford attempt to scramble the ball away but it drops kindly to ex-Blue Daryl Kavanagh who stoops to head home.

8'
Great opening for the visitors as Derek Doyle swings over a cross from the left which Anto Murphy heads into the path of the onrushing Shane McFaul, but the midfielder can only head over from seven yards. He should have hit the target, at the very least.

6'
I used the phrase 'early on' twice in the space of about ten words in that last update. Amateur hour at the RSC. I apologise. Nothing much to report in terms of match action just yet, although the Dublin outfit are looking good on the ball.

3'
There are a good number of away fans present in the RSC tonight, and it seems to have brought the best of the Blues' faithful - at least early on. Both sets of supporters in good voice early on.

1'

GAME ON!

We are underway, the away side striking the opening blow by, erm, taking centre. Okay, I'll stop with the war thing now.

0'
Both teams are gradually retreating to the dressing rooms currently in order to receive their final orders from their respective generals ahead of battle. I've decided on a 'compare sport to war' cliche theme for the evening. Battle-cries aplenty!

Hello, hello! The sun is shining intrusively through the RSC press box rendering my laptop screen nigh on unusable; but no matter, the teams are in and the players warming up on the pitch for Waterford United -v- St. Patrick's Athletic. I'm Dean Hayes and I'll be your badly scorched retinas for this intriguing FAI Ford Cup game.
