90' + 4'

FULL TIME!

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

90' + 3'

That looks like the last chance for UCD as a free kick is cleared to the edge of the box and is fired back where it came from and over the bar.

90' + 3'

Yellow Card

Gary Shaw is booked for St. Patrick's Athletic.

90' + 1'

Better from UCD as McClelland's free in causes problems and a shot from Farrell is blocked by a sea of bodies, before another effort from Danu Bishop is well-blocked.

86'

Darragh Markey has a chance to seal it as he dashes through on goal but the ball gets caught under his feet and Kearns is out quickly to avert the danger.

84'

Substitution

Danu Kinsella Bishop replaces Yousef Mahdy for UCD.

81'

Substitution

Darragh Markey replaces Chris Forrester for St. Patrick's Athletic.

81'

Substitution

Luke Boore replaces Sean McDonald for UCD.

80'

Aaron McGrath, who's been impressive on his debut, aims a cross towards Mahdy at the back post but it's just a fraction too high for the striker. 

77'

A succession of well-hit corners here from both sides that UCD just about manage to deal with, the final one seeing Toner's header just evade the waiting Ciaran Kelly.

74'

Substitution

Conor Clifford replaces Cian Coleman for St. Patrick's Athletic.

72'

Substitution

Gary Shaw replaces Jake Walker for St. Patrick's Athletic.

71'

Forrester tries his luck from inside his own half but his effort it miles off target. Not one of his better ones.

63'

A first shot on target for UCD and it comes on the end of a good move as Mark Dignam strides up the field and plays it inside to Mahdy, who flicks the ball over the top for Davis, but his volley on the turn is well-saved by Clarke.

61'

Great work from Walker to break through the UCD line of defence and he unselfishly passes rather than take on the shot. Pats have an advantage but it plays out as Forrester is presented a shooting opportunity, which he puts straight at Kearns.

60'

Saints awarded a free kick 35 yards out but Drennan drives his effort well wide.

59'

It's become a bit more direct from both sides in the past couple of minutes, and not for the betterment of the game.

56'

UCD's first real entry to the Pats half yields a free kick but McClelland overhits his delivery into the arms of Brendan Clarke. Pats go down the other end and Lennon tries his luck from distance, but it flies well over.

54'

Half-chance for Drennan as he controls inside the box and shoots on the spin but his shot is straight at a grateful Kearns.

50'

All Saints so far in the second half as they pin UCD into their own half, but despite a succession of corners they've yet to create a clear chance.

46'

Second Half

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

45' + 3'

Half Time

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

45' + 2'

Toner's angled ball finds Walker peeling away from the defender in the box but his shot is blocked out for a corner. Drennan's delivery doesn't beat the first man.

44'

Pats' turn to break now and a beautiful ball from Lennon finds Drennan wide on the right. He cuts back for the late-arriving Walker, but he lashes his shot over the bar. Good chance.

43'

Nervy moments for Pats as Brendan Clarke drops a corner at the feet of Aaron McGrath. His first shot is blocked and he's lining up a second referee Ray Matthews very generously blows for a foul on the keeper.

42'

Out of nothing, UCD break and Sean McDonald keeps his feet to get around a couple of tackles but he runs out of options before Desmond concedes the corner.

39'

It's all Pats now as Jamie Lennon intercepts in midfield and drives forward before hitting a daisycutter that ripples the wrong side of the net.

37'

Super save from Kearns to deny Bermingham after Lennon picked him out with a raking crossfield pass and the wing back ran in on goal. He got his shot away despite the attention of O'Farrell, and Kearns did excellently to bat it away.

34'

The tempo of the game has shot up and is now frenetic, Pats pressing all over the pitch. Farrell tries an ill-advised bit of skill on the right touchline and Bermingham looks to play through Drennan, but Scales does brilliantly to nick the ball clear on the cover.

32'

Pats playing with confidence now and Bermingham darts forward into the box and sets up Walker for a header, but he's leaning back and glances it wide.

31'

GOAL!

Kevin Toner scores for St. Patrick's Athletic. What did we say about those deep deliveries? It's been coming from a series of well-worked set-pieces. Drennan swings in a deep corner and Toner powers home a header at the back stick.

30'

Pats have worked that deep delivery from a corner to good effect and this time Forrester finds Walker at the back post, but Scales is first to it.

27'

O'Farrell has been waiting to come back on for two minutes now and Pats almost make the empty space on his flank count as Toner gallops forward, but his cross is cut out by Farrell. O'Farrell is now back on the pitch and looking none the worse.

25'

Pats fans are incensed as Cian Coleman is penalised for a heavy tackle on Richie O'Farrell. The former Pats man stays down and looks in some pain - the last thing UCD can afford is another player out.

24'

UCD continue to threaten on the break when Pats commit and they have a three-on-three that looks promising before Mahdy overhits his pass to Davis and he has to take it out wide.

22'

Drennan has the opportunity to swing in a free kick from the right-hand touchline but he overhits his cross and it clears every head in the box and runs out for a goal kick.

21'

Another good break from UCD sees Davis turns inside to find McDonald in a bit of space at the age of the box, but he never looks confident and curls his shot from the edge of the box well over.

20'

Nice passage of play on the break from UCD sees Mahdy and McDonald exchange passes before releasing Davis, but his through-ball for Mahdy runs just too far. 

17'

We have... a water break?

15'

Pats finding more gaps now and Madden gets in down the right before blasting a shot from a tight angle straight at Kearns.

13'

A rather soft free kick is awarded against Evan Farrell and Drennan floats in another deep cross, this time finding the head of Walker, requiring a strong punch to clear from Conor Kearns. The ball is sent back in and Kearns beats Drennan to it.

9'

A moment of hesitance from captain Scales as he lets the ball run past him in the box to Drennan, but the defender does well to recover and turn the shot behind. Drennan's deep cross finds Bermingham in space past the far post and he lobs the ball back in for Walker, whose header just clears the crossbar.

5'

A strong run forward from Madden looks set to yield a change but Mark Dignam gets back well to block his cross, and the resulting corner comes to nothing.

3'

Pats looking a little nervy at the back as they try to [pass their way aorund the UCD press but, eventually, persistence pays and Clarke smuggles the ball out to Toner.

1'
