90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between St. Patrick's Athletic and Derry City.

90'

GOAL!

Darragh Markey scores for St. Patrick's Athletic.

89'

Keegan accelerates into the box and past and crosses low but it's cleared.

88'

Lovely build-up from Pats as Markey finds Madden out on the right before returning for the inside pas, drifting past a defender and drilling a shot across goal.

87'

Derry haven't given up. A Pats counter breaks down as Conan Byrne fails to find Madden, and Derry break themselves, McEneff skipping past Lee Desmond before poking across a ball that Bermingham does well to read and intercept.

80'

Curtis the latest to have a go for City but his furious low strike is straight at Murphy.

76'

Chance for Derry as Jack Doyle gets forward from left back and finds some room inside the box, but his low shot is well batted away by Barry Murphy.

74'

Substitution

Christy Fagan replaces Thomas Byrne for St. Patrick's Athletic.

73'

Half-chance for Derry as McDonagh gets free down the right and rolls in a cross to the back post,  but Ben Doherty can't get on the end of it.

70'

Substitution

Ben Doherty replaces Rory Patterson for Derry City.

66'

Cross from the right from Darren Cole is just about caught on the line by Murphy. There's a stoppage then as Brennan looks to have picked up a knock.

62'

Substitution

Jamie McDonagh replaces Gavin Peers for Derry City.

60'

Substitution

Ronan Curtis replaces Ronan Hale for Derry City.

59'

Saints continue to pour forward in search of number five, and Markey's ball across the six-yard box is just too far ahead of Keegan.

56'

Champagne football here from Pats as Conan Byrne plays in Thomas Byrne, who shimmies inside the defender before pulling his shot wide. Derry look shellshocked.

56'

Yellow Card

Rory Hale is booked for Derry City.

54'

GOAL!

Thomas Byrne scores for St. Patrick's Athletic. What a turnaround here, as Thomas Byrne shows great control to find space in the box and tucks the ball high into the net.

53'

Ryan Brennan steps in on his left foot and curls a shot well over the bar.

52'

Mistake from Patterson in midfield sees Pats break quickly, Thomas Byrne finding Conan Byrne on the right, but the ball gets stuck under his feet and Toal is able to block his shot.

49'

A handball by Nicky Low on the edge of the box gives Pats a free kick in a good position. Toner's left-footed effort takes a deflection off the wall and isn't far from creeping in the corner.

46'

Second Half

The second half between St. Patrick's Athletic and Derry City has started.

45' + 2'

Half Time

It is half-time between St. Patrick's Athletic and Derry City.

45'

GOAL!

Kevin Toner scores for St. Patrick's Athletic. They're not done yet! Less than 90 seconds after they level, Pats are in front as Kevin Toner plants home a header from Conan Byrne's corner.

44'

Yellow Card

Rory Patterson is booked for Derry City.

43'

PENALTY SCORED!

Conan Byrne scores for St. Patrick's Athletic from the penalty spot. After a frenetic period that sees Rory Hale head off his own bar, Ger Doherty collides with Ryan Brennan and referee Ben Connolly, possibly harshly, awards a penaly, which Conan Byrne converts.

42'

Yellow Card

Gerard Doherty is booked for Derry City.

40'

Another half chance for Ronan Hale, who curls a left-footed shot straight at Murphy.

38'

Derry continue to create their fair share, and Conor McDermott crosses deep for Ronan Hale, whose low header is no trouble for Murphy.

36'

Pats still looking to create an exploit Darren Cole playing out of position wide on their left, but Conan Byrne's early cross is too high for Thomas Byrne.

34'

McEneff played plays a one-two with Rory Hale that sees him played through. He skips around Lee Desmond into the box but is slide-tackled by Murphy. The ball breaks to Ronan Hale, but his low shot hits McEneff, who's still on the the ground, and Pats get it clear.

31'

Beautiful floated ball over the top from Kevin Toner finds Thomas Byrne in behind the defence. He can't control it cleanly on his chest, but he pulls it back for the arriving Markey, who puts the ball over under pressure from Eoin Toal.

29'

Saints starting to turn up the pressure now. Conan Byrne finds Thomas Byrne at the back post, but his header into the ground sits up nicely for Ger Doherty.

24'

More great link play between McEneff and Patterson sees the latter bend a lovely shot towards the corner and Murphy does brilliantly to tip it behind. It's all for nothing, alas, as the former Northern Ireland striker was offside.

23'

Free kick in a good position for Pats, about 25 yards out. Former Saint Gavin Peers is booked for shenanigans in the wall, and when it finally is taken Conan Byrne can't get his effort down.

22'

Yellow Card

Gavin Peers is booked for Derry City.

20'

19'

Once again, Pats go straight down the other end in search of an immediate response and they win a corner. It's cleared as far as Lennon, who sends in a cross that's nowhere near a Pats player and bounces wide.

17'

GOAL!

Darren Cole scores for Derry City. Just when it looked like things had calmed down, Darren Cole's shot takes a wicked deflection off Jamie Lennon and flies in the corner.

8'

It's end to end stuff here so far, as Rory Hale is the latest to try his luck but can't keep his shot down.

7'

GOAL!

Jake Keegan scores for St. Patrick's Athletic. What a response from Pats! Conan Byrne crosses in from the right and Keegan flicks a lovely first-time finish past Doherty into the far corner.

6'

GOAL!

Rory Patterson scores for Derry City. Pats have dominated the game so far but it's Derry who take the lead through a shocking mistake from Barry Murphy, who passes it straight to McEneff and he tees up Patterson for a tap-in.

5'

Chance for Derry as Aaron McEneff and Rory Patterson size up a free kick. McEneff rolls it back for Patterson, who strikes the ball well wide.

1'

The home side get us underway here and they earn an early free kick, which Conan Byrne floats out to Simon Madden. After some passing, he plays it inside for Markey, who wins a corner. From the delivery, Lee Desmond flashes a header wide.

1'
