Updates by

93'

FULL TIME!

It's FULL TIME!! 1-1 replay time

91'
Rory Gaffney wins a corner for Mervue. Sporting are forced to hoof the ball clear

89'
SO CLOSE from Mervue United! Mike Tierney couldn't put the ball in after a goalline scramble. Now Fingal have their 2nd successive corner...

87'

Substitution

SUB MERVUE - Mike Collins replaces Pat Hoban.

85'
An Alan Kirby cross looked like finding Zayed, but again the Mervue defence trumped the Fingal attack.

82'
A looping Eamon Zayed caused Mervue some trouble, as Ger Hanley fumbled it. No one was on hand to pick the ball home though. And Zayed AGAIN with a diving header, just glances wide

80'
The Mervue defence is on fine form tonight, particularly Kevin Crehan who is marking Alan Kirby out of the game.

76'
The pressure is again on Mervue, as Fingal throw everything at them in search of a goal

70'
A real shout for a penalty here as Shane McFaul was elbowed in the face in the Mervue box. Nothing given though.

67'
Fingal's passes aren't coming together tonight as they usually do. Even the usually excellent Ronan Finn and Conan Byrne aren't spreading the ball well.

66'

Substitution

SUB FINGAL - Shane McFaul comes on for Kevin Dawson.

64'

Substitution

SUB MERVUE - Evan Connolly replaces Enda Curran.

61'
Noel Varley with a snapshot for Mervue- produced after a fine passing move. The ball climbed too high eventually.

55'

Substitution

SUB MERVUE - Kenny Farrell replaces Darren Young.

54'
Another almost certain goal prevented by Kevin Crehan. Ger O'Brien's cross almost found Alan Kirby- who had Eamon Zayed on his inside. Crehan made an excellent saving tackle to deny Kirby

49'

Yellow Card

YELLOW CARD for Mervue's Darren Young- a tackle from begind on Kevin Dawson

46'

Second Half

The second half is underway. Niall Farrell is your updater from Fingal!!

45'
Fingal are huffing and puffing here but Mervue are looking surprisingly strong, given their league position.

45'

Half Time

The sides are level as the half time whistle is blown.

40'

Red Card

RED CARD for Shaun Maher- a two-footed tackle on Mervue goalscorer Mike Tierney

38'
Mervue are on the attack again... could we have a cup upset on the cards here?

35'

GOAL!

Mervue are level! A corner was played out wide to Enda Curran who dragged it back for Mike Tierney to head in.

32'
Rory Gaffney is still causing the Fingal defence trouble, but he appears to be fighting a one-man-battle here

29'
Rory Gaffney's long-range shot had Brendan Clarke beaten, but it ripped into the side netting

27'
Sporting Fingal live dangerously- a clear handball in the penalty area is missed by the referee and the ball is booted to safety by Kenny Browne

22'
Conan Byrne again with a dangerous cross- his third in 10 minutes- that was nearly turned in.

18'
Again Fingal applying pressure, and again Conan Byrne is the driving force. His shot was saved well and just about cleared away though.

14'
Shaun Williams played it wide to Conan Byrne, who then crossed for Zayed to slide in for the opener

13'

GOAL!

Eamon Zayed has put Fingal ahead! Kevin Crehan looked to have prevented an almost certain Fingal goal, turning the ball away before it fell for Zayed to finish.

9'
Eamon Zayed looked to be clear on goal- his shot dragged across the face of goal from a tight angle after he beat two defenders with one turn.

7'
Rory Gaffney wins Mervue's 2nd corner...

4'
Mervue seem to be set up to defend early-on. Kevin Dawson had a shot for Fingal but Ger Hanley was equal to it.

2'
Mervue with the first corner, swung in but comes to nothing
