Doyle goes close for Drogheda as the ball drops kindly for him, he connects on the volley but hits it narrowly over the bar.

Then, Brennan switches a ball to Kane. He takes it down the line and flashes a ball across the box. Doyle looks to meet it at the near post with the goal at his mercy but is just too late.
