Live Updates for Sporting Fingal -v- St. Patrick's Athletic

Updates by



It's all over now! 2-2 and advantage to Sligo Rovers maybe from that result

Damian Lynch is taking no chances and launches the ball forward. Into the last minute now

Another ball in from Conan Byrne but Pats deal with it.

Four added minutes

Conan Byrne shoots across goal and with the net beckoning Gary O'Neill is INCHES away from taking the lead

Connor Kenna has been awarded the Man of the Match as Sporting press on



Pats make a double change - Vinny Faherty replaces Danny North while James O'Brien comes on for Gareth O'Connor.

Sporting are now pressing for a winner! Can they undo the season long inability to beat Pats?



Fingal worked the ball to the edge of the box where Ronan Finn struck a shot that deflected off Damian Lynch and INTO THE NET!! Fingal are level.



Pats Sub - Brian Cash replaces Ryan Guy.

Conan Byrne crosses but Keith Quinn fails to control in the box and it runs away from the Fingal sub.

Colin Hawkins gets on the end of a corner and his header is unchallenged but over the bar. He should have gotten that on target.

From the television I'm being told Pete Mahon is not very pleased with his side's inability to kill this game. To be fair, Sporting have had plenty of attacks all game, the difference is they haven't been able to convert

Sporting are pressing Pats now. They are always, however, under threat from Pats ability to counter attack with Ryan Guy and Danny North.



Fingal Sub - Keith Quinn comes on for Ollie Cahill.

I was just writing that Sporting just can't convert their chances today and Crowe fires home! Typical



Glen Crowe picked the ball up on the left of the box and side foots past the keeper. Game on!!



Fingal Sub - Shane McFaul comes on for Lorcan Fitzgerald as Fingal switch to 3-5-2.



Pats are two up!! Ryan Guy won the ball from Shaun Williams on the edge of the Fingal box and slipped a pass to Danny North. He nipped in between two defenders and drilled a shot past Darren Quigley from six yards.


Second Half

The second half has started at Morton Stadium.


Half Time

St Pats lead at the break. The Inchicore side certainly seem to have their Dublin rivals hexed this year.

A cross field ball from Lorcan Fitzgerald finds Conan byrne in space but his tempting cross snakes through the box without finding a taker.

A great chance again for Fingal. Ollie Cahill rises above Gareth O'Connor and heads narrowly over from a Conan Byrne cross.

A lot of Fingal pressure now. A succession of corners, all aimed at Shaun Maher. Nothing comes of them though.

Lovely play from Fingal sees Gary O'Neill meet a ball at the back stick but he blows it over the bar. The flag was up anyway but some good football up to the finish.

Ryan Guy benefits from a Shaun Williams clearance that deflects into his path off Dave Mulcahy. His crisp shot from 18 yards fizzes just wide of Quigley's far post.

A great chance for Fingal. Glen Crowe won the ball off Conor Kenna wide on the right and slipped a ball in to Gary O'Neill. It wouldn't come down for him and his shot was bundled away for a corner.

With fifteen minutes played here Pats look the stronger Their midfield are more effective and the runs of Ryan Guy are causing problems for the home defence. Dave Mulcahy is bossing this game so far.



Ryan Guy created this, turning Colin Hawkins on the left and sending in a ball that Dave Mulcahy hit sweetly into the far corner.

First chance to Fingal as Gary O'Neill plays in Ronan Finn. He lays it off to Glen Crowe whose low shot skims just wide of Gary Rogers' left hand post.

Pat's have set themselves up for 5-4-1 with North on point up front. Dave Mulcahy will fill in at the back in the absence of Shane Guthrie with Noel Haverty also starting in defence. Guy and Doyle will play wide in midfield with O'Connor, Stewart Byrne and McAllister in the middle.

It's grey and windy here in Santry and the photographers have started putting rain cover on their lenses. They're more reliable than met eireann.. it's going to rain.

There's a very poor crowd here at Santry. The 1pm kick-off isn't doing anyone any favours. Unless of course you're tucked up in front of your TV.

Freddie the Fox is giving it socks and the teams are taking to the field. Here we go.

One hour to kick-off here at Morton Stadium and we're all set up and waiting for the teams to come in. The RTE boys are all milling around and the girls from Clonliffe Harriers are jogging about looking a little bit confused. There's a match on girls!

The teams are in and Sporting line out in a 4-4-2 just as they did against Drogheda last weekend. Eamon Zayed isn't fit and isn't involved. Finn and Williams will anchor the midfield with Byrne and Cahill in the wide positions. O'Neill and Crowe start up front.
