90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Shamrock Rovers and UCD.

85'

1,523 here in Tallaght

78'

So close to a first UCD goal for Danu Kinsella Bishop as it opens up for him on the edge of the six-yard box but Roberto Lopes throws himself in the way to clear.

76'

GOAL!

Aaron Greene scores for Shamrock Rovers. Greene robs the ball off Evan Farrell and strides through to slot the ball past Sheridan.

75'

Substitution

Isaac Akinsete replaces Richie O'Farrell for UCD.

73'

Sheridan is forming a one-man resistance against the Rovers frontline here, saving again as Carr is slipped through on goal and shoots from a tight angle.

68'

McEneff hunting for a hat-trick as he attempts a volley from the edge of the box but it's well-blocked by Keaney.

67'

Somehow the UCD goal survives intact once more as McEneff's flick finds Carr and, from point blank range, he steers the ball onto the crossbar!

66'

Very nearly a seventh for Rovers as Oluwa's cross is blocked by Evan Farrell and the loose ball sits up perfectly for Watts, but his shot is straight at Sheridan, who stood up well.

65'

Substitution

Jack Ryan replaces Dara Keane for UCD.

63'

Oh dear, a nasty clash of heads between Gary O'Neill and Dara Keane has them both in a deal of pain .You could hear it from the press box.

62'

Rovers continue to threaten and Greene shows a nice turn of pace before zipping a low ball towards Carr that Sheridan is able to intercept.

59'

Substitution

Thomas Oluwa replaces Jack Byrne for Shamrock Rovers.

58'

GOAL!

Aaron Greene scores for Shamrock Rovers.

57'

A surging run forward from the sub Eric Abulu, and he takes the return pass from Carr before going down under what looked a good tackle from Harry McEvoy, but free kick given. Jack Byrne's shoots from a tight angle and it takes a good save from Sheridan, before Watts again sees his low shot turned away by the keeper.

53'

Chance for the Students as O'Farrell rushes infield and passes up the opportunity to shoot, instead teeing up Dignam, whose low shot is straight at Mannus.

50'

Great chance for Greene to make it six as he cuts in from the left, but he scuffs his shot. A sixth here would put UCD bottom on goals scored.

47'

GOAL!

Aaron McEneff scores for Shamrock Rovers. Aaron Greene on as a sub at half time and sets up a goal within two minutes as he squares for McEneff to get his second of the game.

47'

An early effort from Richie O'Farrell following some good build-up play from UCD but his ambitious effort from distance is miscued.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Shamrock Rovers and UCD has started.

46'

Substitution

Eric Abulu replaces Ethan Boyle for Shamrock Rovers.

46'

Substitution

Aaron Greene replaces Graham Cummins for Shamrock Rovers.

46'

Substitution

Danu Kinsella Bishop replaces Yousef Mahdy for UCD.

45' + 1'

Half Time

It is half-time between Shamrock Rovers and UCD.

45' + 1'

Chance for Rovers to finish the half on a high as Byrne slips in Cummins but, running away from goal, his chip is comfortably saved by Sheridan.

45'

One minute added on here.

45'

Good defending from Mark Dignam to cut out Kavanagh's cross with Boyle lurking at the back post.

41'

Brilliant bit of build-up from UCD sees Jason McClelland nick the ball clear and unleash a powerful shot that Alan Mannus does well to parry behind. Much better from the visitors.

39'

Another stoppage as Cummins goes down heavily following a clash of heads with Harry McEvoy.

37'

Better from UCD as they build up the field to the impressive Keane and he slips in Mahdy, but the striker can't find the angle to shoot and wins a corner, which sails out of play on the far side.

36'

UCD really struggling to get anything going now, but they're still plugging away and looking for gaps. Rovers' have slowed the tempo down a bit now.

29'

A short break here as the physios come on to tend to Dan Carr, who appears to have been hit in a place he wouldn't want to be hit.

26'

The waves of Rovers attacks continue to come and McEneff this time finds room for a shot on the right-hand side of the box, but Sheridan does well to save with his feet.

23'

GOAL!

Jack Byrne scores for Shamrock Rovers. This is turning ugly but nothing ugly about Jack Byrne's slaloming run into the box before smashing a low shot past Sheridan, who again might have got more on it.

21'

GOAL!

Daniel Carr scores for Shamrock Rovers. Rovers having a field day now as Dan Carr touches home Sean Kavanagh's cross. Cummins was behind him had he missed it.

19'

GOAL!

Aaron McEneff scores for Shamrock Rovers. McEneff heads home Jack Byrne's corner. Harsh on UCD as Carr looked to foul Dan Tobin in winning the corner.

18'

More fluid play from Rovers sees Cummins play Watts in on the right and his low cross is aimed towards Carr, but Dan Tobin does brilliantly to get in front and clear for the corner, although he might have had a free out for a foul.

16'

Could easily be two for Rovers as UCD are cut open too easily and Cummins only has to knock the ball square for Carr to run clear on goal, but it's a poor ball from the Corkman and easily cut out by Evan Farrell.

13'

GOAL!

Graham Cummins scores for Shamrock Rovers. A first Rovers goal for Graham Cummins as the ball falls his way in the box and he scores at the near post, despite Gavin Sheridan getting a decent hand on it.

12'

Big chance for Rovers as McEneff crosses to the back post for Daniel Carr to head and he makes good contact, but Gavin Sheridan is equal to it, and he's fouled as he goes to grasp the loose ball.

11'

The rain has eased off but the wind is still ferocious. Alan Mannus tries to kick long but his kick catches the wind and ends up at the feet of Yoyo Mahdy, but Rovers crowd around to dispossess him.

10'

UCD have settled in a bit now and are enjoying some spells of possession but finding it tough to play through an aggressive Rovers forward defence.

5'

Another chance for Rovers as Aaron McEneff's shot skews to Cummins, who can't control it, and a UCD defender clears off his own player's back. Cummins looked offside anyway. It's now absolutely lashing down here.

3'

What a chance for Graham Cummins to open his Rovers account as Dylan Watts swings in a cross past the face of goal and the striker just can't connect with his head. From the loose ball, Jack Byrne's shot on the turn is blocked by Dara Keane..

1'
