FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Waterford and Shamrock Rovers.

90'

There will be two minutes of added time...

88'

GOAL!

Thomas Oluwa scores for Shamrock Rovers.

That's five! Oluwa taps home at the back post after a great ball across the box from Graham Burke to put it on a plate for the youngster. This has been a bad night for the Blues while Rovers are not giving up this title chase just yet!

84'

Dean Walsh has been brilliant since he has come on for the Blues at the break but his introduction appears to have come too late to salvage the game. He soon goes close but Mannus saves well under pressure

78'

Yellow Card

Roberto Lopes is booked for Shamrock Rovers.

78'

GOAL!

Cory Galvin scores for Waterford.

OH WOW! That's a great goal from Galvin but it comes probably a little too late. Dean Walsh passes to Galvin who cuts inside and shoots into the top corner of Alan Mannus' net! Game on?  

76'

Substitution

Thomas Oluwa replaces Aaron Greene for Shamrock Rovers.

75'

Graham Burke and Brandon Kavanagh combine well to force a corner kick as the Hoops search for a fifth. This ain't pretty for the hosts now

73'

Corner Kick

Shamrock Rovers have won a corner kick. Jack Byrne will take it.

70'

Substitution

George Poynton replaces JJ Lunney for Waterford.

69'

GOAL!

Aaron Greene scores for Shamrock Rovers.

Bad to worse for the hosts now as Greene lobs Connor who was off his line as the visitors go FOUR up.. Not the night Alan Reynolds wanted at all as Jack Byrne once again shows his class with a world-class assist. This is incredible to watch! 

68'

Substitution

Brandon Kavanagh replaces Ronan Finn for Shamrock Rovers.

65'

The attendance at the RSC this evening is 1,283 for this Monday night clash. Not bad, but certainly not great...

61'

GOAL!

Aaron Greene scores for Shamrock Rovers.

Disaster for Waterford as Aaron Greene scores against the run of play to end the game as a contest with Greene racing clear to fire past Connor in the Hoops goal. Rob Slevi's back pass was intercepted by Greene who turned the ball home, profiting from an absolute gift! That is that, I would assume...

57'

Walter Figueira goes on a brilliant run and looks to find Dean Walsh but Lee Grace is on hand to clear the danger. The Hoops are looking a tad disjointed at the moment 

54'

Not an awful lot to report on over the last few minutes as Dean Walsh fires over the bar from a Rory Feely cross. Waterford have improved drastically this half

50'

Shamrock Rovers have started the second period the way they finished the first, a tad restrained. The next goal will prove crucial...

46'

Second Half

The second half between Waterford and Shamrock Rovers has started.

46'

Substitution

Sam Bone replaces Kevin Lynch for Waterford.

46'

Substitution

Dean Walsh replaces Tom Holland for Waterford.

45' + 2'

Half Time

It is half-time between Waterford and Shamrock Rovers.

45'

There will be two minutes of added time. Can Waterford get back into this or will the Hoops grab a third? 

43'

Waterford with a rare foray forward but teh attack comes to nothing. On nights like these, it is always going to be difficult when players like Jack Byrne are in the form they are in. Exceptional stuff it must be said!

41'

Substitution

Graham Burke replaces Graham Cummins for Shamrock Rovers.

39'

This game has quickly turned into the Jack Byrne show. What a performance from the midfielder so far as the Blues can't seem to deal with the dynamic attacking star

37'

Corner Kick

Waterford have won a corner kick. Shane Duggan will take it.

34'

It's a long, long way back for Waterford now who have been second best completely this evening. Alan Reynolds will probably be viewing this as a damage limitation exercise now

30'

GOAL!

Jack Byrne scores for Shamrock Rovers.

Lightning strikes twice! Jack Byrne with another glorious strike that beats Connor all ends up from range. This man is on fire! Ronan Finn goes on a searching run across the park to find Byrne cutting in on the left. He then scores an incredible goal with a curling finish. He is doing himself no harm in terms of making Mick McCarthy's senior squad! 

29'

Jack Byrne to the forefront of some good Hoops play as he lays the ball off to Graham Cummins. Cummins then shoots over the bar. That was a good opening from the Hoops there 

25'

GOAL!

Jack Byrne scores for Shamrock Rovers.

Jack Byrne, take a bow. Gary O'Neill tees the ball off to Byrne who has been excellent thus far who then fires a superb effort into the top corner of Matthew Connor's net. Connor got a touch on it but he had no chance, Rovers deservedly lead after a great start

22'

Corner Kick

Shamrock Rovers have won a corner kick. Jack Byrne will take it.

ROBERTO LOPES.... So close for the Hoops captain but he just heads wide after getting above Rory Feely with relative ease. The Hoops go close from a set-piece again

19'

Shamrock Rovers have played themselves out of trouble well so far this evening with Lee Grace and Roberto Lopes looking very comfortable on the ball. Rovers are edging this so far 

16'

Waterford's Waler Figueira has looked quite lively so far but has yet to get a real chance as of yet. Quiet enough opening spell to the game it must be said...

13'

Brief stoppage of play as there is a clash of heads between Dylan Watts and Shane Duggan. Watts appears to have come off worse but he should be OK to continue 

11'

Corner Kick

Shamrock Rovers have won a corner kick. Jack Byrne will take it.

10'

Free Kick

Shamrock Rovers have won a free kick. Sean Kavanagh will take it.

10'

Yellow Card

Maxim Kouogun is booked for Waterford.

7'

Waterford once again struggle at a set-piece scenarion as Ethan Boyle attacks Byrne's corner. The ball then breaks to Roberto Lopes but he can't sort his feet out as the Blues survive. Nervy times already for the hosts... 

6'

Corner Kick

Shamrock Rovers have won a corner kick. Jack Byrne will take it.

5'

Seems I have not introduced myself yet. Andrew Dempsey here on duty as the Blues look to get over their defeat at the same venue versus Cork City on Friday evening.. Can they? Let's find out! 

1'

So close for the Hoops as they almost took a one-nil lead. Lee Grace heads a brilliant Jack Byrne corner kick wide of goal... Let off for the hosts on that occasion 

1'

GAME ON!
