90' + 3'

Bigger tests lie in wait for City, I'm off for a cup of tea. I've been Andrew Horgan, thanks again for following, until next time.

90' + 3'

Good night for Cork City who stroll into the third round of the Irish Daily Mail FAI Senior Cup after a routine victory at Turners Cross. Credit to St Peter's, could easily have suffered a heavy defeat here, warmly applauded off the pitch again by the Cork City faithful.

90' + 2'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Cork City and St Peter's.

90'

Too late as the P.A System officially announces O'Connor man of the match and confirms that there is two minutes to be added on.

89'

Man of the match Kevin O'Connor heads a looping header just off target, maybe I should take back my vote.

87'

St Peter's ought to have reduced the deficit but after a fine cross from the right finds Ian Dempsey unmarked a few yards out from goal, the midfielder stoops but sends his header just over the cross bar, great chance for the Athlone side.

86'

Unanimous decision in the press box sees Cork City's Kevin O'Connor selected Irish Daily Mail Man of the Match. A proud moment for him I'm sure, he can thank me later.

84'

O'Sullivan lay off to Holohan in a decent position but he can't keep his effort down and fails to threaten the visiting goal keeper.

79'

Holohan run to the edge of the box, Holohan pass into Sheppard's path, Sheppard first time strike floats harmlessly over the St Peter's cross bar.

77'

Substitution

Karl Sheppard replaces Danny Morrissey for Cork City.

75'

Substitution

Declan Fallon replaces Mark McConnell for St Peter's.

73'

St Peter's, with one substitution to make, must be tempted to put Phillip Coffey senior in goal to replace Phillip Coffey junior.

72'

A clever short free kick fromSt Peter's picks out David Brooks and his thunderous shot from distance sails narrowly past the top right corner, great strike from the midfielder, inches away.

71'

Yellow Card

Craig Donnellan is booked for Cork City.

70'

Tempo of the game really starting to wane here, both sides going through the motions, game petering out to the inevitable conclusion of a convincing Cork City victory.

66'

66 minute update on the attendance, total figure 666. Hope you aren't superstitous.

64'

Substitution

David Donohue replaces Pascal Dillon for St Peter's.

60'

Ian Turner lashes one just wide of the top right corner, decent strike.

56'

Substitution

Gary Kelly replaces Nathan Ekololo for St Peter's.

54'

Yellow Card

David Brooks is booked for St Peter's.

53'

Cork City somehow fail to add a fifth after an absolutely ridiculous goal mouth scramble. Dooley, Morrissey, O'Sullivan all have mulitiple chances to scuff the ball over the line but St Peter's survive, outrageous really.

51'

GOAL!

Mark O'Sullivan scores for Cork City. An excellent Kevin O'Connor free from the right, powerfully headed into the net by O'Sullivan.

50'

Yellow Card

Neil Harney is booked for St Peter's.

48'

Drama in the stands as 8 Cork youngsters chase the loose ball in attempt to be the one who hands it back to Steven Beattie. Pleased the young fella in the half and half scarf lost the race to be honest.

46'

Substitution

Steven Beattie replaces Kenny Browne for Cork City.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Cork City and St Peter's has started.

45' + 3'

Good half that for Cork City, winning three nil with the handbreak on. More goals in this for the leesiders when their possession football finally takes effect on the legs of the St Peters players.

45' + 2'

Half Time

It is half-time between Cork City and St Peter's.

45'

Two minutes added on. Two minutes until Phillip Coffey senior has the chance to lay into his side.

39'

To be fair, the St Peters goalkeeper does look like a manager who decided he fancied playing against Cork City at Turners Cross under the Friday night lights and picked himself to play in goal. The dream.

37'

So it turns out it may not be manager Phillip Coffey in goal for St Peters but rather its his son Phillip Coffey junior. That's what I get for listening to my colleagues in the press box! I'll clarify as soon as possible, im off now in search of their birth certs and identification.

34'

Substitution

John Dunleavy replaces Craig Donnellan for Cork City.

32'

GOAL!

Stephen Dooley scores for Cork City. Gavan Holohan's through ball plays in Mark O'Sullivan who instantly picks out Dooley in the middle and he makes no mistake, drilling the ball into the bottom left corner of the net. Game well and truly over you would imagine.

28'

Just as I post that, Caulfield emerges from his dry dug out to berate his captain John Dunleavy, ordering the defender to keep the ball.

26'

Two St Peter's coaches at the edge of their techincal box barking out the instructions as well as Phillip Coffey in goal. The City coaching staff have hardly been seen yet this half, been a rather straight forward evening for them so far.

21'

City switch off at the back an gift St Peter's a glorious opportunity to equalise but Ethan Nkololo tries to be to clever when through one on one with the goalkeeper and allows Alan Smith to gather the ball at his feet.

20'

GOAL!

Gavan Holohan scores for Cork City. A superb touch from the midfielder allows him to fire a dipping volley past the keeper from the edge of the penalty area.

16'

Danny Morrissey returns to the pitch and at long last we are back to 11 vs 11. Can't help but think, against tougher opposition City would definitely have made a substitution.

13'

O'Sullivan almost heads in Cork's second but his powerful effort is excellently saved by Phillip Coffey. Promises to be a long night for the stand in goal keeper.

12'

City lead after a dominant start to proceedings and they're even down to 10 men as Danny Morrissey runs down to tunnel to recieve more treatment and maybe even stitches to repair his head injury.

10'

GOAL!

Kevin O'Connor scores for Cork City. O'Connor rises highest to head Ian Turner's corner home from a couple of yards.

8'

Danny Morrissey suffers a knock to the head as he bravely tries to head Mark O'Sullivan's knock down into the net from close range. Game currently stopped as he recieves treatment.

5'

Mark O'Sullivan goes close for the hosts but his cross shot flies harmlessly wide of the far left post.

1'

And we are underway, City playing right to left with St Peter's attacking the half empty Shed End in the first half. 

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Cork City and St Peter's has kicked off.

0'

Both teams emerge from the tunnel, kick off fast approaching. City have made just the 7 changes from their dramatic victory against Derry City last Friday with John Dunleavy, Gavan Holohan, Kevin O'Connor and Kenny Browne retaining their places. 

0'

John Caulfield praised St Peters highly in his programmes notes and the visitors have just recieved a warm reception from the home crowd as they return to the dressing room. You'd imagine the pleasantries will end as soon as the first whistle is blown! 

0'

Big night ahead at Turners Cross for St Peters of Athlone, first time they have played a Premier Division side in the FAI Cup, visits don't get much more daunting that Cork City away under the Friday night lights.

Good evening and welcome to extratime.ie My names is Andrew Horgan and I, as always, will be talking you through the best of the action as Cork City take on St. Peter's in the Irish Daily Mail FAI Senior Cup Second Round.
