FULL TIME!

The game has ended between UCD and Cabinteely FC.

90'

Three minutes of added time here and it's all Cabo at the moment.

90'

Waters finds Jason Byrne and the striker's first time shot seemed to hang in space before deciding to go outside the post rather than inside. Still no winner as normal time comes to an end.

90'

Substitution

Rob Manley replaces Cian Kavanagh for UCD.

88'

Cabinteely have a free now after Karl Byrne was taken out on the right by Georgie Kelly. Waters' free was weakly punched away by Corbet and fell to McGovern, but his snapshot flew through the bodies only to miss the target by a very narrow margin.

87'

Max Kouogun burts forwards and slips a sideways pass to Gary O'Neill. The UCD captain let fly but a defensive foot took the bite out of the shot and it was collected by Kelly.

84'

Cabinteely force a corner on the far side which both Kevin Knight and Andy McGovern miss at the back post. Then Corbet drops the ball when it is pumped back in and is rescued by an alert Dan Tobin who scoops the ball away.

82'

The pace of this game remains hectic as we enter the final ten minutes. Play hurtles from one end to the other. True, the number of genuine chances has decreased, but the detemination to break at speed is still there and I'm still backing a winner... for who though?

79'

Substitution

Cian Lynch replaces Evan Galvin for Cabinteely FC.

79'

Substitution

Jason Byrne replaces Joe Doyle for Cabinteely FC.

78'

Only 12 minutes left here but there'll be a winner... just you wait.



75'

GOAL!

George Kelly scores for UCD. A long clearance from Corbet wasn't dealt with by the Cabo centre backs and Kelly wrestled the ball clear to blast a half-volley past the Cabo keeper. The game is level!

74'

Evan Osam has looked a class act at Left back for UCD tonight. His Dad is here too, sitting just in front of us. A fine football pedigree.

72'

Substitution

Ben Hanrahan replaces Jason McClelland for UCD.

68'

The game's getting a bit tetchy now as the game becomes more centred in the middle of the park. There have been some unnecessary fouls and you can feel tempers rising.

65'

Substitution

Sean Byrne replaces Sean Byrne for UCD.

65'

There was a yellow card for a Cabinteely player there but we're divided as to who got it. It looked to me like it was Daire Doyle but others maintain it was Evan Galvin... Let's not insult an innocent party and wait for confirmation.

62'

Yellow Card

Greg Sloggett is booked for UCD.

62'

A Greg Sloggett challenge brings down Marty Waters 25 yards from goal but Evan Galvin's free kick is hit way over the bar.

60'

Yellow Card

Karl Byrne is booked for Cabinteely FC.

58'

Cabinteely perhaps looking slightly more threatening now but both teams are carving out half chances. 

54'

Play is beginning to settle a bit now but it's hard to pick out a dominant team. UCD have just won a free 35 yards from goal and Gary O'Neill is set to take it. But it sails harmlessly into the arms of the Cabinteely keeper.

50'

The second half has started at a ferocious pace with both sides charging forwards at every oppotunity. Some meaty tackles flying in too. There's no lack of commitment at The Bowl tonight.



47'

Liam Scales strides forward from defence then plays a square ball to Cian Kavanagh and his shot from the edge of the box is comfortably gathered by Michael Kelly. Moments later, at the other end, a forward push by Christian Lotefa ends witha  shot from Waters from a similar distance, also gathered by the keeper.

46'

Second Half

The second half between UCD and Cabinteely FC has started.

45'

Half Time

It is half-time between UCD and Cabinteely FC.

40'

GOAL!

Cian Kavanagh scores for UCD and the Students are back in it. Jason McClelland through and Kavanagh skipped elegantly past Kelly before rolling the ball into the empty net.

38'

Yellow Card

Dan Tobin is booked for UCD.

36'

This has turned into a super game of football. Great defending from Cabo's Karl Byrne as he cut out a ball intended for Georgie Kelly. Then, a terrific ball forwards to pick out Joe Doyle. He skipped between two defenders and got a shot away that was perhaps a bit too far off target to merit the Ooooohs. Still, though, great build up play.

33'

Lovely back-heel by Lotefa to fin Watson's overlapping run. Watson's return as Lotefa made his overlap almost snuck through was was deflected out of play by Dan Tobin. Man! Suddenly, Cabinteely are playing like demons.

31'

Fierce pressure from Cabinteely know as they force a couple of corners in succession. But UCD defend them and lift the siege. For the opening twenty minutes UCD looked the better team here but find themselves two down with half an hour gone. Funny old game.

29'

PENALTY SCORED!

Kieran 'Marty' Waters scores for Cabinteely FC from the penalty spot. A very confident finish from the Cabo man, slamming it low and to the left, sending Corbet the wrong way.

28'

Penalty to Cabinteely! Jack Watson went down under a fairly gentle challenge from Liam Scales and referee David Keeler points to the spot.

26'

Straight away UCD launch an attack of their own with captain, Gary O'Neill, rolling the ball beyond keeper Michael Kelly but just the wrong side of the left hand post.



25'

Excellent play from Cabinteely. Liam Scales ball out of defence found Jack Watson some forty yards out, but he gained ten yards in a couple of seconds and then let fly with an arcing shot that Niall Corbet only kept out with a spectacular full-length leap.

20'

Good play tight at the corner flag from Waters, who cut a pass inside to Evan Galvin. He had some decent space to work in, did the Cabinteely winger, but screwed his shot well wide at the near post.

17'

Ucd head right back up the other end and after Conor Keeley conceded a free right on the edge of the 'D', Gary O'Neill hit the ball straight into the wall before Kian Kavanagh side-footed the rebound inches over the Cabo bar. Close but no cigar.

15'

GOAL!

Kieran 'Marty' Waters scores for Cabinteely FC. He did it all himself too, bursting in from the right before threading a low shot past Niall Corbet. Against the run of play, you would have to say.

14'

Young Andrew McGovern has his hands full with Georgie Kelly tonight. He's come into Cabinteely's back four to allow Lotefa back into his more favoured role in central midfield for a challenge which I didn't see, but hears.

12'

Yellow Card

Christian Lotefa is booked for Cabinteely FC.

11'

Daire O'Connor with another attempt on goal, but his spinning chip was only ever going sneak past Kelly if he fell over his shoelaces which, so far as I can tell, are securely tied.

10'

Ten minutes played and UCD are looking the better team. They are pinging tha ball about nicely with Daire O'Connor and Georgie Kelly both looking dangerous. Cabinteely haven't threatened yet and need to get more involved.

8'

UCD hit the crossbar! Cabo conceded a free after a foul on McClelland and the ball was headed on by Georgie Kelly for Daire O'Connor who nutted the ball over Michael Kelly but back off the underside of the bar. An Excellent set-piece from UCD and a bit of an escape for the visitors.

4'

Good, strong play from Evan Galvin wins Cabinteely a free 35 yards out on the left, but the delivery is headed straight back out again and Daire O'Connor tidies up the second ball. No chances yet but both teams are looking to play.

2'

UCD's first foray forwards yields a corner as Daire O'Connor's run is brought to an end. The first is headed behind at the near post for another corner, and the next is to the back post where UCD are pulled up for an infringement. 

1'

GAME ON!

The game between UCD and Cabinteely FC has kicked off.



0'

Here come the teams. We'll be kicking-off here in a matter of moments.

0'

I'm expecting goals here tonight. My pre-game prediction is 2-1 to UCD but a win for Cabinteely would haul them up into the promotion pack and is entirely possible. Pat Devlin's presence at the South County Dublin club has made a huge difference to them and this should be a tight affair.

0'

UCD come into this game in second place in the First Division table, just one point behind leaders Waterford, while Cabinteely lie in fifth, just four points behind UCD. Cabo have never beaten UCD in the league, losing eight of the nine previous meetings between the two sides, and drawing the other one.

0'

The teams are in and Cabinteely give a start to Andrew McGovern in midfield, which I think may be a league debut for him. That represents the only change for Cabinteely from their 1-0 defeat to Shelbourne last weekend.

0'

After a day of leaden grey skies and constant sprinkling rain, the sun has come out at the Belfield Bowl and we're here to bring you all the action from the First Division clash between UCD v Cabinteely. We're just over half an hour away from kick off so we should be getting team sheets any minute now. As soon as we have them we'll throw them up on the game page.
