At least 1 minute added on here at the end of the first half.

40'

Wixted clips a ball through the Cobh defence to Thomas Byrne. Byrne lays it back into the path of Lyons who has his first effort saved well by Hunt. His second effort, somehow, he fires well over the bar when it looked certain to be a third Drogheda goal. 

36'

Cian Leonard receives a second yellow card and is sent off for Cobh Ramblers. Leonard, already on a yellow, dives in late on Drogheda defender Luke McNally and is shown a second yellow.

Yellow Card

Cian Leonard is booked for Cobh Ramblers.

28'

GOAL!

Chris Lyons scores for Drogheda United. Sean Brennan goes for goal with a long range free kick. It's hit straight at Hunt who looks to have gathered it but drops it, it hits off the post and Lyons is first to react, getting there to fire home close range to double Drogheda's lead.

25'

Yellow Card

Mark Hughes is booked for Drogheda United.

23'

Drogheda now with a great chance to score. Neat play sees Brennan flick the ball into Lyons, who ends up one-on-one with Hunt, who easily saves the shot.

16'

Cobh are growing more into this game, just had a great chance to draw level. Stephen Christopher's cross towards Denzil Fernandes at the back post looked set to end up in a goal only for James Brown to get across and put the ball out for a corner. 

8'

GOAL!

Mark Doyle scores for Drogheda United. Early lead for Drogheda and it's a deserved one. Thomas Byrne finds space in midfield, holds onto the ball before releasing the unmarked Doyle who makes no mistake, finishing into the far corner. 

2'

Drogheda go close with the first chance of the game. Lofted ball up the field is controlled brilliantly by Doyle. He gets the ball out of his feet and shoots but Hunt is equal and saves well.
