Unevenetful second half so far since the goal here - both teams having the ball but yet to really test their respective opposition keepers.

Half Time

Half time whistle blows here. Good spells of possession and chances from both sides so far but game remains 0-0.

45'

Two minutes to be added here at the end of the first half.

40'

Good City play - Buckley sets up Morrissey and he's forces Birdsall to tip the ball over the bar. Good strike matched by a good save. Five minutes to half time. Still 0-0.

37'

Birdsall makes a great save - Holohan strike from inside the box on the left but the keeper makes a great low save.

32'

Danny Morrissey capitalises on Burns loose ball and races through on goal but Robert Birsdall is out of his goal to make a good save with his legs.

Wow. Somehow Cork City haven't taken the lead here. A bobbling ball around the Blues penalty area sees numerous chances at goal being blocked - the most important coming from Boyle off the line. Still 0-0.

19'

Big hole in the Blues defence and Holohan looks to exploit but he fires over the bar. City having more of the possession here now after an early Blues spell.

Danny Morrissey almost in for City here - he races through but Patrick Fitzgerald covers to clear.

Gavin Holohan with a great City strike - the ball rising just over Birdsall's crossbar.

9'

Chance for City. Ross Gaynor crosses from the left for Mark O'Sullivan but he can't get his header on target.

6'

McAlavey does well down the right - cuts back and gets his cross in but Alan Smith in the Cork goal collects.

5'

Holohan fouls Boyle in the City half - McAlavey floats in the free kick but it's just beyond the reach of centre back Patrick Fitzgerald.

5'

Gavan Holohan is booked for Cork City.

2'

Good Blues play here to start the game. Breslin, McAlavey, Kiely and Hurley all involved but the cross into the box is cleared.

1'

Match kicks off here. The home teams in all Blues. Cork City is red and white.

0'

Glorious sunshine here at the RSC - both teams on the pitch in their warm up. Just over 15 minutes to kick off.
