The teams have finished their respective warmups and return to the dressing rooms. The crowd is building here, the main (sheltered) stand is almost full and we have a few braves souls on the opposite side facing the wet conditions.

The rain is pouring down here in Inchicore, how will this affect tonight's game?! 

0'

We're 30 minutes away from kick off, what a night this is for the home side. They simply have to pick up 3 points here tonight if they want to guarantee their survival as they face a daunting away trip to Derry City on the final day of the season.
