Shelbourne's unbeaten home record is over and Drogheda grab that all important three points. Massive result here for Tim Clancy's side. Match report to come your way later! 

89'

Oh well oh well! Great goal by Sean Brennan from the free kick and he taunts the Shelbourne fans with a 'can you hear me celebration'. HUGE, ABSOLUTELY HUGE GOAL in this promotion race!

88'

Hyland is cleaned out by Byrne. Big, big chance for Brennan from this set piece

87'

Looked like a peno! Shels survive!

86'

OH NO!!!! Jake Hyland and Chris Lyons get their wires crossed completely and they end up missing a glorious chance! Let off for Shels

84'

That might have been it! Rooney blazes over after good work by Evans down the left hand side. Should've done much, much better

45' + 2'

Half Time

It is half-time between Shelbourne and Drogheda United.

Just before the half-time whistle is blown, Mark Doyle sees his shot blocked by another Shels defender. Half-time and yeah.... not much can be said about that 45 minutes at Tolka. Here's to an entertaining second half.

45' + 1'

There will be two minutes of additional time

44'

This game really needs a goal...

McCaffrey gets on the end of it but a Shels defender is there to block it.

23'

English's looping header is well claimed by Skinner who has reacted well since his early error. Ball was floated in by Aidan Collins.

20'

Scrappy enough this. Neither have a creative spark in the middle who can seize control of the game yet.

19'

English is movely freely once more. Watch this space although

17'

James English is in trouble right in front of me. Both teams having a well deserved water break in a frantic opening 15 at  a sun-kissed Tolka.

14'

Yellow Card

Sean Brennan is booked for Drogheda United.

12'

Sean Brennan swings in a free kick wihich is claimed by Delany. If a Drogs player got on the end of it that may have been interesting

11'

Chris Lyons appeals for a penalty which is waved away by the referee

10'

It's got to be said there's a very good crowd at Tolka this evening! Will be interesting to see how many will be announced. Delany scuffs a clearance out for a throw in under pressure as I type which comes to nothing.

5'

Drogheda operating with a 4 3 3. Shels with the same as usual.

3'

Promising start fro Shels. Corner kick for the reds as we speak which is pretty poor!

1'

OH MY!!!!! Skinner has been let off with an absolute howler. O'Sullivan almost takes full advantage. MASSIVE, MASSIVE let of for the Drogs!
