Live Updates for Longford Town -v- Salthill Devon

Updates by

90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

Full-time here and Longford Town record their 10th league win of the season but they made hard work of it.

89'

Substitution

SD Galway Sub - Gerry Dolan replaces Willie Enubele.

88'

Substitution

SD Galway Sub - Charlie Burke replaces Ronan Conlon.

84'

Substitution

Longford Sub - Michael Lee replaces Karl Bermingham.

77'

Substitution

SD Galway Sub - James Whelan replaces Mike Tierney.

77'
And we have just witnessed miss of the season here. Mark Salmon did all the hard work to get to the endline just before the ball went out and play it back to Alan Kirby who missed it completely when right in front of the goals.

73'
Enda Curran is very lucky not to get his side's equaliser. He did very well to get past two Town defenders but keeper Craig Hyland gets his fingertips to the shot to put it out for a conrer. Real let-off for the home side.

70'
A free from Keith Gillespie from the left was headed just inches wide by Austin Skelly. After his contribution last weekend a lot of supporters were surprised to see him not starting tonight.

69'

Substitution

Longford Sub - Colly James is on for Jamie Duffy. Two big players now on for the home side.

68'

Yellow Card

Luke McConnell is booked for SD Galway.

65'

Substitution

Longford make their first change - Austin Skelly is on for Gary Shaw.

64'
Gary Shaw forces a save from SD keeper Liam Grant with a snapshot from just outside the box.

57'
Karl Bermingham gets to the endline and does well to find the space but takes too long in deciding what to do with the ball and ends up letting the ball go out for a goal-kick.

56'
Noel Haverty tries his luck but his effort sails over the bar. He is a noted Gaelic Footballer so it was a good point.

55'
While it's just 1-0 the visitors have a chance in this game and are working hard to try draw level. The way they are playing you wouldn't think they were bottom of the table.

49'
Keith Gillespie is very unlucky that his effort just goes wide. The midfielder has been in fantastic form this season and deserves a goal for his performances. He actually hasn't scored for the club yet.

47'
It's amazing the amount of people keeping an eye on these comments. It's nice to get feedback.

46'

Second Half

Second half is underway now.

45' + 3'

Half Time

The half time whistle sounds and Longford lead thanks to Jamie Duffy's goal.

45' + 2'

Yellow Card

Eric Browne is booked for SD Galway.

45' + 2'

Yellow Card

Noel Haverty goes in the book for that tackle.

45'
Game has stopped here for an injury to Cian Fadden. Town defender Noel Haverty the culprit.

42'

Yellow Card

Willie Enubele is booked for SD Galway.

39'
The visitors are getting back into this game and have come close to equalising a number of times in the last few minutes.

38'
A free from the left from Ronan Conlon is punched away by Craig Hyland, it falls to Luke McConnell who decides to try his luck from about 30 yards out and Hyland has to push the ball out for a corner.

37'
The last two meetings between these two sides; this season and last have both ended 1-1. Town should know how dangerous SD Galway can be.

35'
Up the other end defender Eric Browne is after forcing Town keeper Craig Hyland into a fine save. The netminder had to be alert there.

34'
And as I speak Gary Shaw nearly gets in for Town's second goal; long ball over the top the tall striker got a foot to it but unfortunately for him his effort went wide.

33'
It has been all Longford here but they just haven't really created anything to trouble SD Galway.

26'
Good defending from Town defender Jeff Flood who outmuscles Luke McConnell for the ball.

22'
Alan Kirby does well to head down the ball but Karl Bermingham fails to make an attempt to move for it. A chance squandered for the home side.

18'

GOAL!

And the home side take the lead here courtesy of Jamie Duffy. His first goal since his return to the club.

16'
Alan Kirby loses possession and it's picked up by Mike Tierney he plays the ball into Enda Curran but lucky for the Town defender Des Hope clears the danger.

14'
Gary Shaw flicks the ball on for Jamie Duffy and his shot is deflected out by Eric Browne for a corner. Good defending.

11'
Des Hope gets his head to Keith Gillespie's corner but his effort is headed off the line by Cian Fadden for another corner. This one comes to nothing.

10'
The SD Galway corner comes to nothing.

9'
Enda Curran - who scored the equalising goal against the Town in Galway earlier this season - has been lively. He forced a save from Craig Hyland in the 2nd minute and just now he makes the Town keeper put the ball out for a corner.

7'
Teams are now in the system. Apologies for the delay but it's a regular occurrence here in Flancare (no sheets on time) and it's rather frustrating.

1'

GAME ON!

And the home side get the game underway.

0'
Town have the same team that played against Waterford last weekend while SD Galway make three changes; in are Liam Grant, Ronan Conlon and Timmy Molloy.

0'
Apologies for no teams in but we just got the team sheets up here; well the one copy between four of us so it's a scramble to write down names. I will put in teams when I get the chance.

It's top v bottom tonight in Flancare Park. Kick-off 7.45. As always extratime.ie will be there to keep you updated. We'll also have a match report & post match reaction too..
