Second Half

45'

So it's the home side who go in 1 up at the break. It's been a pretty even game and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top here.

With Sligo and Galway both winning at the break 3 points here are all the more vital.

The floodlights are on, the sun has set, the night time chill has set in and the teams are back out on the pitch for the second half.

Corner Kick

Harps enjoying more of the ball now but Pat's are keeping a good line and look pretty comfortable at the moment.

As I type a low effort from Keita whizzes just wide of the post.

30'

Pat's looking dangerous again as Dennehy, Kelly and Byrne link up again but cannot muster an effort between them. That goal has really settled the home side.
