FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Cabinteely and Cobh Ramblers.

90' + 4'

More Cabinteely corners - it's like the Alamo here.

90' + 2'

Conor Keelyt gets a sight of goal but his shot is blocked. Then the big defender flicks on a throw-in only for Hunt to claim it and temporarily clear Cobh's lines. The ball is not long in coming back, however, and the seconds tick away Cabo get another two corners in a row.

90'

Yellow Card

Conor Keeley is booked for Cabinteely.

90'

Three successive corners for Cabinteely... only for the third to be (correctly) overruled by the assistant - it had gone out off a Cabinteely player. There will be four added minutes.

88'

And another chance for Cabo - Jack Watson picks up a loose ball from a melee on the edge of the box and whips his shot off a defender and wide.

87'

More Cabinteely pressure but they can't get a telling shot on target. paul Hunt collapses onto the ball and Cobh head into the final minutes with their lead intact.

86'

It just won't go in for Cabinteely! Paul Fox powers a header goalwards but Hunt pulls off an excellent save. Just four minutes left for Cabinteely to turn their dominance into a point.

85'

Substitution

Stephen Christopher replaces Anthony McAlavey for Cobh Ramblers.

83'

Again Cabo come close as Paul Hunt lets Jack Watson's corner slip out of his hands right on the goal line. all it needed was a touch and the home side were level but there was no one there and Cobh saw the ball out for a corner.

82'

Yellow Card

Paul Hunt is booked for Cobh Ramblers.

79'

Substitute Jaze Kabia almost uts Cobh out of site. Cian Leonard picked out his run with a deft touch but the young striker pulled his shot across goal and wide of the far post.

78'

Substitution

Jaze Kabia replaces Andrew Wall for Cobh Ramblers.

78'

Substitution

Sean Bregazzi replaces Christian Lotefa for Cabinteely.

72'

Substitution

Paul Fox replaces Steven Ball for Cabinteely.

68'

Some signs that Cobh are reawakening here with some decent play in midfield. Nothing so decadent as an attempt on goal but some periods of possession and some neat passing. Time is starting to become a wee bit of an issue for Cabinteely now.

65'

Substitution

Kaleem Simon replaces Keith Dalton for Cabinteely.

65'

Substitution

David Hurley replaces Denzil Fernandes for Cobh Ramblers.

62'

Cabo have the ball in the net but the whistle was well gone by the time Joe Doyle hammered in Conor Keeley's cushioned header. Offside we presume, from Jack Watson's free kick.

58'

Nearly fifteen minutes gone at Sradbrook and Cabinteely are still the team on the front foot. Cobh haven't got going in ths ahlf at all and if there's going to be another goal in this game you would expect it to go to the home side.

52'

Kar Byrne almost catches Paul Hunt out with a looping ball into the Cobh box. The keeper got up to it easily enough but the ball then seemed to squirt out from his clothes and dropped just over the bar. Cabinteely very much on top in the early stages of the second half.

50'

Cabinteely almost level as Stephen Ball's free kick deflects off the Cobh wall, claatters off the underside of the crossbar, and is cleared.

47'

Jack Watson's free is headed behind for a corner by a Cobh defender but Stephen Ball's attempt from the flag is kyboshed by a slip and Cobh escape further pressure.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Cabinteely and Cobh Ramblers has started.

45' + 2'

Half Time

It is half-time between Cabinteely and Cobh Ramblers.

45' + 1'

Marty Waters is checked right on the edge of the Cobh area but nothing given by the referee. Cabo have been pressing hard for a leveller but they armen't going to get on ein this half. The referee blows for half-time.

45'

There will be two added minutes at the end of the half.

42'

Joe Doyle got in a great floated cross from the right for Cabinteely but it didn't find a taker in the middle. Cobh defender Charlie Fleming had to be very cool, chesting it over the end-line fr a corner.

40'

Cabinteely are right back in this now and have been pressing Cobh for the last few minutes. The visitors need to weather this patch and get make it to half-time.

39'

Kieran Marty Waters comes within a hair's breadth of pulling Cabinteely level. He turned on the edge of the box and smacked a low shot inches wide of the cobh goal with Paul Hunt beaten.

37'

Ben O'Riordain, the Cobh centre back, gets in a well timed blck on Wayers as he tries one from the edge of the Cobh box.

35'

Cabinteely have responded reasonably well to going behind. They have been far more committed to getting forward and are working their way into things much more. Kieran Marty Waters has been very quiet since the penalty miss and has switched flanks now, from left to right.

30'

GOAL!

Adam O'Sullivan scores for Cobh Ramblers. A long free kick from Darren Murphy found O'Sullivan at the back post. He got above his marker and nudged his header in off the inside of the post.

25'

Cobh definitely having the better of things at the moment and their back three are settling nicely. Srtill, with the game scoreless anything could happen as Cabinteely have created a few chances themselves. 

20'

It looks like Cobh are starting toget a hold of this game now. They are testing the pace of the Cabinteely back four with both Anthony McAlavey and Andrew Wall causing problems running on to through balls.

15'

Yellow Card

Karl Byrne is booked for Cabinteely.

15'

MISSED PENO!

Darren Murphy misses for Cobh Ramblers from the penalty spot. Karl Byrne was the man who gave it away by taking out McAlavey inside the box. Once again we see a keeper make the save with Stephen McGuinness going the right way and tipping the ball onto the post and away.

14'

A great opportunity for Cobh as Charlie Fleming splits the home defence with apass that Cian Leonard pounced on. He sped on but McGuinness did well to block the striker's shot.

11'

Yellow Card

Darren Murphy is booked for Cobh Ramblers.

11'

Keith Dalton sent in a corner from the left for Cabinteely and as Ben O'Riordain tried to shepherd the ball back to Paul Hunt it bounced up and hit his arm. Adriano Reale didn't hesitate and pointed to the spot but Hunt guessed right and got down to his right to keep out Waters' penalty.

10'

MISSED PENO!

Kieran 'Marty' Waters misses for Cabinteely from the penalty spot.

10'

PENALTY for Cabinteely !

6'

Christian Lotefa tried to hit a pile-driver from 35 yards but fresh-aired the all. Cobh snatched possession and broke forwards but Ian Mylod's delivery in from the left was cleared, allowing the home side to recover.

2'

Keith Dalton manages to poke a shot goalwards for Cabinteely but it clips off a Cobh boot and rolls out for a corner... which comes to nothing. Cobh have started with a back three and two wing-backs, which I'm told they also did for the first half against Longford a fortnight ago.

GAME ON!

The game between Cabinteely and Cobh Ramblers has kicked off.

0'

The teams have just come out and we should be underway in a few moments. A very small crowd here at Stradbrook this evening with both teams looking for their first win of 2018.

The pitch looks a bit bobbly as it's still being used for the rugby season, but I've seen it worse so hopefully it won't be too big an issue this evening. Lots of clubs struggle with pitch quality in these early months of the season, including Cobh, so it's pointless harping on about it. Clubs on small budgets do what they can with the resources they have and, let's face it, veterans like myself remember the days when grass was considered a foppish extravagance.

0'

The box in Stradbrook has just been powered up so we're all ready to roll in south Dublin. Cobh Ramblers had a terrific season in 2017, finishing second to Waterford in the First Division table, but they lost three times to Cabinteely including a 1-4 hiding here on the 25th March.

Cabinteely had their best season to date in 2017, finishing 5th of eight, while 11 points separated them from tonight's visitors in the final table.
