Live Updates for Derry City -v- Finn Harps

Updates by

90' + 5'

ASSIST!

Walter Figueira provided the assist.

90' + 5'

Commentators curse. Adam Liddle swivles and puts the ball in the net. A great finish from the on loan Reading man. Great work by Figuiera. He has been lively. That has got the draw surely?

90' + 5'

GOAL!

Adam Liddle scores for Derry City.

90' + 5'

Free kick for Derry City....Again nothing comes of it but they get it back in. Figuiera hits a shot but its saved nd scrambled away by Finn Harps

90' + 4'

Last chance saloon for Derry here......

90' + 1'

Corner Derry.....Comes to nothing. 4 minutes left of added time. Harps look like they are heading two wins in a row and two 1-0 wins. Who would have guessed that at the start of the season?

90'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Derry City and Finn Harps.

1-1....Great ending to a great game. arsh on Finn Harps but a draw was probably a fair result.

89'

Chance. Cherrie saves from a good attempt from O' Sullivan. Harps still hanging on. 5 minutes added on

85'

Substitution

Ryan Connolly replaces Stephen Doherty for Finn Harps.

85'

Again the ball is launched into the Harps box and again they head it away. Bread and butter stuff for the Finn Harps defence.

83'

Lupano has looked lively but he lacks the quality there to punish Harps. Still 1 nil to the away side.

81'

Plenty of yellows in this game shown as you would expect. I wouldnt be suprised to see a red. What are the odds?

81'

Yellow Card

Mark Coyle is booked for Finn Harps.

80'

Derry dont look like a bad team. It's just that they cant put the ball in the net. Although Finn Harps are defending very well. 10 minutes to go.

77'

Yellow Card

Ally Gilchrist is booked for Derry City.

75'

Chance! Nilsen has another opportunity but he misses it. Another penatly appeal waved away by the ref. This one was more clear cut. But no penalty says the ref

74'

Substitution

Mark Coyle replaces Shane McEleney for Finn Harps.

72'

Substitution

Jack Malone replaces Ciaron Harkin for Derry City.

70'

Yellow cards dished out to coaching staff on both sides. Not sure why? But the ref obviosuly eard something

69'

Nilsen has a chance to make a name for himself. But great defending by Harps. Shane mcEleney it was, but he looks like he has injured himself. Sub incoming.

68'

You just feel there is nervousness in the Derry City team the way they are playing. The play nice football but with no cutting edge. Missing Junior and Parkhouse| maybe?

66'

Substitution

Stephen Mallon replaces Conor Clifford for Derry City.

65'

Yellow Card

Barry McNamee is booked for Finn Harps.

Bad challange. Not malicious though.

63'

Substitution

Gareth Harkin replaces Leo Donnellan for Finn Harps.

57'

Yellow Card

Jamie McDonagh is booked for Derry City.

Frustrated by not getting the penalty McDonagh is rightly booked for a rash challenege. 

57'

Penalty shout. But its waved away by the referee. It would have been soft had it been given. Although if we had VAR........? I won't go there.

56'

Yellow Card

Leo Donnellan is booked for Finn Harps.

For dissent ....I think?

55'

Nearly another gift there from Derry City as Cherrie sips when passing the ball out from the back. Harps fail to capitalise.

53'

Chance! A quick break set up by McNamee plays O' Sullivan in. He curls a shiot just outside the box but Cherrie saves it. A bit of a camera save in my opinion but he kept it out.

49'

Chance! This time for Derry. McDonagh whips in a cross but nobody is on the end of it. Great start to the second half here. Hopefully more goals.

48'

Chance. Barry Mcnamee has a chance to play in Connolly but the pass is over hit. Decent start for Harps

46'

Second Half

The second half between Derry City and Finn Harps has started.

And we are back in action here

45'

Despite barely having a shot on goal Harps are the team in front from a mistake at the back which allowed Ryan Connolly to whip in a strike (Im still not sure what Derry City goalkeeper Cherrie was doing though?) Derry have been poor going forward. The need to up there game in the second half

45'

Half Time

It is half-time between Derry City and Finn Harps.

44'
Just a word on Derry City's new striker Tim Nillson. He looks like he could be a good player but he is very much isolated up top. Finn Harps are so well organised though.

43'
Derry City will have to be much more creative if they are to avoid their second deafet of the season

38'

Corner Kick

Derry City have won a corner kick. Moussa Bakayoko will take it. The count is building up for Derry City but the have yet to make them count. Still 1 nil to the Harps

32'
A horror show at the back for Derry City and Ryan Connolly takes advantage. He basically had an open goal there. What was the keeper doing?

32'

GOAL!

Ryan Connolly scores for Finn Harps.

30'

Free Kick

Finn Harps have won a free kick. Moussa Bakayoko will take it. Free kick for Finn Harps about 40 yards out. First real chance to put Derry under pressure

29'
If someone is going to do something it's Derry City's Figuiera. He looks lively

27'
Still very even here. You get the feeling already it is going to be a piece of magic or a mistake that will win this game

21'
Figueira has a great chance on the volley but blazes it over. Best chance of the game do far!

20'
Ciaran Harkin has an attempt but never going in Derry are upping the tempo up here a bit

17'
As expected here Barry McNamee is getting a bit of stick from the home crowd. Not too bad mind you

15'
Fairly scrappy game so far on the field. Not much in chances created. Neither team will want to lose this one

12'
Still goalless here but a great atmosphere is being created by both sets of fans

1'
