Live Updates for St. Patrick's Athletic -v- Sligo Rovers

90' + 7'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between St. Patrick's Athletic and Sligo Rovers.

90' + 1'

A Pats corner finds Bermingham on the penalty spot but his hooked over flies past the post.

90'

Six minutes added on here. 

88'

The home fans have been filing out since the third goal went in. Those who have stayed are stunned to see their side 3-0 down in a game they've dominated.

84'

Substitution

Adam Morgan replaces Caolan McAleer for Sligo Rovers.

82'

GOAL!

Jack Keaney scores for Sligo Rovers. That's the clincher for Sligo, as Michael Barker and Lee Desmond get themselves in a muddle, miss the ball and Keaney strides through before slotting under Murphy.

79'

Substitution

Killian Brennan replaces Jamie Lennon for St. Patrick's Athletic.

76'

Yellow Card

Rhys McCabe is booked for Sligo Rovers.

75'

HOW HAVE PATS NOT SCORED? Ball breaks in the box, first to Keegan, then to Markey, and then to Brennan, whose shot seems destined for the net only for Jack Keaney to pull off a fine block.

71'

A quick exchange of passes sees Madden reach the endline inside the box and scoop a cross towards the back stick, but it's put behind. From the resulting corner, Barker heads back across goal and Ryan Brennan's bicycle kick flies over.

68'

Rhys McCabe rattles a free kick from distance but it's marginally over.

67'

Lee Desmond breaks forward from defence, beats a man and tries to slip a ball through for Keegan but it's marginally overhit.

66'

Substitution

Raffaele Cretaro replaces Seamus Sharkey for Sligo Rovers.

65'

After a long delay as Seamus Sharkey gets treatment, another chance for Pats as Ryan Brennan's corner finds Conan Byrne at the back, but he effort to control the ball is blocked by Regan Donelon.

63'

Substitution

Jack Keaney replaces Lewis Morrison for Sligo Rovers.

61'

Yellow Card

Regan Donelon is booked for Sligo Rovers.

55'

How have Pats not equalised? A corner into the box is completely missed by Mitchell Beeney and the ball breaks for Keegan, who has to score but John Mahon somehow manages to block it on the ground and Sligo clear.

53'

After Sligo opt not to return possession to Pats after a stoppage for one of their own players going down, the Saints do break upfield and Markey's ball across goal is just too far ahead of Keegan.

51'

Great chance for Simon Madden as he's teed up inside the box but David Cawley is one of several to throw his body in the way of the goalbound shot.

49'

Chance for Pats as they go quick from a free kick and Jake Keegan is slipped in to the right of goal, but he low shot is well-saved by Beeney.

49'

Yellow Card

Patrick McClean is booked for Sligo Rovers.

46'

Second Half

The second half between St. Patrick's Athletic and Sligo Rovers has started.

45' + 1'

Half Time

It is half-time between St. Patrick's Athletic and Sligo Rovers.

45' + 1'

Clarke nearly picks out Madden on the burst into the box but the pass is just overhit.

42'

Chance for Seamus Sharkey to head goalwards from a corner. He wins the duel but can't keep his header down - that could easily have been 3-0.

39'

Sligo continue to threaten every time they get forward, Morrison this time forcing the ball goalwards, and Barry Muprhy saves low.

36'

Yellow Card

John Mahon is booked for Sligo Rovers.

35'

Morrison touches the ball down for McAleer and the winger volleys first time from the edge of the box, but he can't keep his shot down.

34'

Big chance for Pats as the ball holds up on the edge of the box and Beeney and McClean are unsure of who's going to claim it. Conan Byrne nips in and takes the ball wide of Beeney, but he can't steer his shot into the empty net from a tight angle.

29'

Yellow Card

Ian Bermingham is booked for St. Patrick's Athletic.

29'

GOAL!

Alistair Roy scores for Sligo Rovers. Huge contention here as Ryan Brennan is pushed over in the box and referee Derek Tomney, who has a good view, doesn't give a penalty. Sligo win the ball back and break quickly, Roy playing a one-two with Adam Wixted before bending his shot past Barry Murphy.

28'

Conan Byrne's delivery into the box causes all sorts of confusion and it nearly sits up for Barker to shoot, but he can't get turned. 

26'

A fully-committed 50/50 between Markey and McClean sees the smaller player win out, but McClean gets back to make the tackle on Conan Byrne.

24'

Saints starting to apply the pressure more and Conan Byrne gets to the byline before hooking back a ball that Keegan can't control.

23'

Lovely exchange of passes between Dean Clarke, Bermingham and Markey sees space open up for Clarke to shoot right-footed from 30 yards. He makes great contact, but the shot is straight at Mitchell Beeney.

22'

A lovely reverse pass from Conan Byrne sees Simon Madden in behind on the right, and he stands up a cross towards Keegan that is well headed away by McClean.

21'

Both sides are similarly set up and are both comfortable playing the ball in tight spaces. So far it's made for quite a narrow game, but it could definitely open up as defences get more tired.

17'

Sligo give an indication of the threat they'll offer on the counter now they have a lead to hold onto. Caolan McAleer dispossesses Dean Clarke down in the corner at his own end of the field and bursts forward, playing a quick ball through for Ally Roy. He shapes to shoot towards the top corner, but he gets under the ball.

15'

Sligo playing much more freely since taking the lead, forcing Pats to work hard to win the ball and then pressing them strongly when they do get it. 

11'

GOAL!

Patrick McClean scores for Sligo Rovers. The visitors win a corner with their first real attack, and Pats fail to clear. Lewis Morrison turns the ball back towards goal and it's a lovely finish from McClean, sticking out a long leg to direct the ball back across goal at the back post.

10'

A first promising foray forward for Sligo sees former Saint David Cawley run into the final third with options around him, but a poor pass towards Lewis Morrison sees the move break down.

6'

Chance for Pats as they get their full backs forward and Simon Madden hangs up a deep cross that's met by Ian Bermingham. He makes good contact, but the ball flies over the bar.

2'

Pats attack from the off and Darragh Markey finds himself in space on the right. He tries to pull the ball back for Jake Keegan, but it's not a great ball and Seamus Sharkey slices clear.

1'

Sligo Rovers get us underway here, Rhys McCabe tipping off as the visitors shoot into the Shed End first half.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between St. Patrick's Athletic and Sligo Rovers has kicked off.

0'

Just the one change tonight for Saints from last week's 2-0 defeat to Waterford, with Michael Barker replacing the suspended Kevin Toner after his sending-off that day. Just the one change too for Sligo, as Regan Donelon returns in place of the suspended Kyle Callan-McFadden.
