89'

88'

GOAL!

Aaron Drinan scores for Waterford. A great save by Connor from Dave Webster at one end and Waterford break quickly, and Drinan finally gets his goal with a smart finish across Brendan Clarke.

85'

Waterford defending with their lives as, first, Doona's shot is bravely blocked before another defender throws himself in the way as Shaw is played in by Drennan. 

83'

Another chance for Drinan as he rises highest to meet Poynton's corner, but he can't steer it on target under pressure.

81'

Pats going all-out now and sub Jake Walker does well and, with advantage being played for a handball by Shane Duggan, the ball is sprayed wide to Doona but his cut-back is hoofed clear.

80'

Half-chance for Doona as he ekes out a yard in the box and drills a shot, but he pulls it wide of the target.

80'

Substitution

Jake Walker replaces Ian Bermingham for St. Patrick's Athletic.

74'

Big chance for Pats to pull one back as Damien Delaney inexplicably leaves a ball over the top for his keeper and Drennan nips in and tries to turn the ball in, before Rory Feely appears to get the last touch and hits the ball off his own post. Madness!

73'

Clifford is robbed in midfield and Waterford break quickly, Akinade laying the ball off first-time for Drinan, who drives to the egde of the box and shoots, but again he pulls it well past the post.

A super chance for Waterford to make it two as the Pats defence backs off and Cory Galvin is allowed take a strike from 20 yards that curls just past the post.

46'

Second Half

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

45'

Half Time

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

41'

Good hold up play from Derek Daly allows Shane Duggan space for a shot, but Lennon throws himself in the way of the shot and takes the sting out of it. Waterford coming more into it as the half comes to a close.

34'

Penalty shout for Pats as Webster claims to have been bundled over by Damien Delaney, but referee Ray Matthews is unmoved.

32'

Spectacular effort from Forrester as he miscontrols Madden's cross before attempting an overhead kick, but he can't find the target to trouble Connor.

30'

Out of nothing, Waterford should take the lead as Drinan goes one-on-one with Brendan Clarke and somehow pulls his shot wide. He knows he should have scored, and a sigh of relief goes around Richmond Park.

28'

Drennan has the chance to create something from a corner but it's way too close to Connor, who claims the ball easily.

25'

Yellow Card

George Poynton is booked for Waterford.

25'

Saints continuing to knock on the door and, after Forrester nicks the ball from Duggan in midfield, he plays a lovely through ball for Drennan and Connor is again live to it and slides in to clear on the edge of his box.

24'

Great chance for Pats agan as Lennon's ball looks set to be nodded in by Lee Desmond, but he can't get a full connection on it.

21'

Conor Clifford has had a great opening quarter here, spraying around passes to the right and left to exploit the gaps.

19'

Super save from Matthew Connor as Jamie Lennon picks out Bermingham with a diagonal ball into the box. The left-back volleys it low and first-time towards the bottom corner and the keeper does brilliantly to save with his foot.

18'

Rory Feely takes a big risk against his former club, tapping back to Connor, who is put under pressure by Clifford, and he just about gets it clear.

17'

First proper opening for Waterford as Drinan wins a duel in the air with Lennon and drives towards goal, but he can't get a proper hold of his left-footed effort and it trickles wide.

15'

More pressure from Pats is repelled by Waterford and, when the ball breaks to Chris Forrester on the edge of the box, he scuffs a shot on the turn wide of the target.

14'

Jamie Lennon's corner from the left is begging to be headed in by a Saints head but Damien Delaney gets a flick on it to avert the danger.

13'

A lovely floated pass from Clifford finds Ian Bermingham free on the left, and he forces a corner at the second attempt off Simpson.

12'

Yellow Card

Ciaran Kelly is booked for St. Patrick's Athletic.

10'

Interesting tactical set-up from Pats here, with three at the back and what looks like a diamond in midfield, with Jamie Lennon at the base and Chris Forrester at the tip. Waterford playing a more traditional 4-4-1-1.

8'

Bit of a scrappy start from both sides but each gaining a few openings down the flanks, where Aaron Simpson and Zack Elbouzedi have started well for Wateford, while Madden is having some joy for Pats.

3'

First opening of the gasme for Pats sees Simon Madden pump in a cross from the right towards Mikey Drennan, but goalkeeper Matthew Connor plucks it out of the air.

1'
