90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

It's all over here. Shels might feel hard done by after their first half display, but Derry City won't mind that. They may have had less chances than their hosts, but they were just far more clinical tonight. They march on to face St Pat's in the final.

90' + 1'
Paddy Kavanagh with a shot outside the Candystripes box, but well wide.

90'
Three minutes added on here.

89'
The official Man of the Match award tonight goes to Stephen McLaughlin of Derry.

87'
Ruadhri Higgins shoots powerfully- just over.

86'

Substitution

Mark Brolly on for Kevin Deery.

86'

Yellow Card

Kavanagh booked for a late challenge on Simon Madden.

84'
Shels had a free in a great position there, but it was poorly taken. They've squandered a lot of chances in this match.

83'

Substitution

Shels bring on Conan Byrne for David Cassidy.

78'
The home side are still plugging away here, but Derry don't look like conceding.

73'
That goal has really killed any hope of a comeback. Shels now look lifeless, the atmosphere in the home section has died off completely.

68'

Substitution

Ruadhri Higgins on for Barry McNamee.

68'
Controversial, that one. The Shels defence thought a ball over the top was offside- linesman Ken Hennessy didn't agree though. McDaid was clean through, rounded Bennion and walked the ball in.

68'

GOAL!

David McDaid scores for Derry City.

67'

Substitution

Philly Gorman comes on for Paul Byrne.

67'
Stephen McLaughlin again tests Bennion with a long range shot, but Sean Byrne is able to clear it away.

65'

Yellow Card

Kevin Deery booked for a clumsy challenge on Ian Ryan.

62'
An absolute humdinger of a goal there. McLaughlin picked it up outside the Shels box, took a few steps up and just thraked that one in. It had a fierce spin on it- Bennion had no chance.

62'

GOAL!

Stephen McLaughlin scores for Derry City.

59'
Derry win a free wide of the Shels box, McNamee hits it well, but it's wide.

58'
...Philly Hughes hits it hard against the wall, and has another go then but still can't get a shot on target.

58'
Glen Cronin has won a free for Shels in a great position...

56'
Shane McEleney gets on the end of a cross at the far post of Shels' goal, but Bennion gets up to claim it.

54'

Yellow Card

Stephen Paisley slides in on McLaughlin around the halfway line and gets the ball, but also a lot of the man.

53'
Another Shels corner, but again it's booted clear before anyone gets on it.

52'
Derry look a lot more menacing on the ball here, haven't properly attacked in thsi half though.

50'
An attendance of 1,477 announced.

49'

Yellow Card

Glenn Cronin is booked for Shelbourne.

48'
Philly Hughes is at the heart of most of Shels' attacks. His through ball didn't find Cassidy that time though, gathered up by Doherty.

46'
Shels on the attack straight away- Paul Byrne wins a corner, but it's headed clear.

46'

Second Half

We've just kicked off in the second half. A lot of nervous faces in the home stand at the moment.

45' + 1'

Half Time

Half time, will that goal take the wind out of Shelbourne's sails? They were on top for most of that half.

45'
McLaughlin finishes superbly inside the Shels box from a cross off the right.

44'

GOAL!

Stephen McLaughlin scores for Derry City

41'
A lovely mazy run from the halfway line by Paddy Kavanagh there, but he shot just over in the end.

40'
OOOH! Patrick McEleney hits the crossbar with a curling shot. Very, very close.

39'
Another Shels chance. This time David Cassidy should have worked the 'keeper- an Ian Ryan cross came in and he was unmarked, but swung his foot too soon and missed the ball.

37'
Hughes again! This time he shoots agonisingly across the face of goal after being put through by an immaculate Kevin Dawson ball.

36'
A shot from Patrick McEleney along the ground is pushed wide for a corner by Chris Bennion, but it comes to nothing.

34'
HOW DID THAT STAY OUT??? Philly Hughes breaks away and shoots past Doherty. It hits the post, then the Derry 'keeper, but stays out of the goal somehow.

31'
WHAT A SAVE! The second corner was swung in accurately for the head of Stephen Paisley and only a superb save from the outstreched Doherty spared a goal.

29'
Derry concede a corner through a poor headed clearance from Stewart Greacen, it's whipped in and Ger Doherty has to push it out for a another one.

25'
Stephen McLaughlin headed the ball inside the Shels box, it ended up on top of Chris Bennion's goal though.

23'
A bit of Reds pressure leads to a Sean Byrne shot outside the City box, but it's well wide.

22'
INCHES wide for Kevin Dawson. He connected with a Paddy Kavanagh cross right in front of goal, but shot wide.

19'
...it's easily hoofed clear though.

18'
Shels win a corner now after a Paddy Kavangh cross was cleared...

16'
The Candystripes win the game's first corner. It's hit too hard though and is cleared away by Sean Byrne eventually.

15'
The ball almost fell nicely for a Barry McNamee pot shot there, but he was closed down in time by Andy Boyle.

13'
Shels have had a good start to the match, but they still really need to watch themselves defensively.

11'
Philly Hughes was through on goal there and tried to cut inside his marker, but the ref called a foul.

8'
Philly Hughes played a lovely ball through the City defence there, but it was hit too hard for Cassidy to latch on to.

7'
Both sides look nervous, with the ball being aimlessly lobbed about at the moment.

3'
Shels break away after another Derry free was cleared. Cassidy attempts to play it to Philly Hughes quickly but he's offside.

1'
The Derry drum is a-banging and early on they see a free kick headed away by Ian Ryan.

1'

GAME ON!

We've just kicked off, who's going to meet St. Pat's in the final? Let's see.

0'
The two teams are coming out of the tunnel- we're almost ready here. A nice atmosphere is building up. Derry in their away strip in yellow, Shels in classic red.

0'
Brian Laws, Damien Richardson and Stuart Byrne are here in Tolka Park tonight - we are five minutes away from kick-off.

0'
Both teams are now on the pitch doing their warm-ups and the team news is being uploaded now.

0'
It's all-or-nothing for these two teams tonight- the winner will meet Pat's in the FAI Cup final. They couldn't be separated last Sunday, will this semi-final replay part Shelbourne and Derry City? On updates in Tolka Park, I'm Niall Farrell and I'll have starting XIs with you as soon as I get them.
