Best Rovers chance of the half - really their only chance of the half - comes to Brandon Kavanagh off a Dave McAllister cross. The 17-year-old fires a left foot shot a whisker by the Town far post. The Rovers fans think it is in but Kavanagh has his head in his hands as it just goes wide.

Longford Town well up for this game and taking the play to Shamrock Rovers whenever they can. They fancy taking a Premier Division scalp this evening. Neale Fenn will be happy with how his team have performed after the lost to UCD last Friday - their first home defeat of the season.
