Another McCabe free is swung in and it's met by Quinn but again it's off-target.
Four added minutes.
Another chance for Ukraine as Kozlova meets a cross from the right but she can't get a firm contact on the ball and it bounces to Brosnan.
Another hairy moment at the back as Brosnan and McCabe both go for the same ball, but the captain does manage to come away with the ball.
Big chance for Ireland as McCabe crosses from the left deep to the back post and it's met by the head of Louise Quinn, but she can't keep it down.
Break in play following a heavy collision in the air between Scott and Boychenko.
Snapshot from Kozlova from 25 yards flies harmlessly over.
Great work from Jarrett out on the left to make it to the endline, sit down the centre half Kravets and pull the ball back towards Payne, and Ukraine clear, winning the free kick in the process.
Another free wide on the right swung in by McCabe but it's too close to Sanina.
O'Sullivan has a blem from distance but she can't find the target.
Ukraine onto their third left back as Voronina, who was only in the squad due to a covid case, is replaced by Petryk.
20 minutes to play and it's all Ireland but you get the feeling this one is slipping away.
Payne is hacked down by Voronina and Ireland have a free kick in a good position 25 yards out. McCabe blasts this one over.
Ireland are playing some lovely football now and Payne is played in by Littlejohn before clipping a cross to the back post, where McCabe's volley is blocked by Filenko.
McCabe swings in another corner on top of the keeper and Sinana does not look confident under those high balls, flapping at the ball and just about getting it away.
Ireland half-clear a cross and the ball drops for captain Apanaschenko, who catches the ball flush on the volley and it flies over the ball.
Break in play as Andruschak receives treatment in the centre of the pitch.
Ireland in behind again through Payne but, instead of shooting from a wide angle, she looks to pull it back for Jarrett but doesn't pull it off.
Lovely ball over the top from Littlejohn finds O'Sullivan on the right and she drives infield before cutting back for Jarrett, and her firmly-struck shot is well-saved by Sanina.
McCabe swings a free kick in from deep and it's met by the head of Quinn, but nobody is able to get a touch to it and the keeper sweeps up.
O'Gorman's cross is flicked on by Jarrett and Ruesha Littlejohn nips in to try and divert it goalwards, but Kravets does enough to play it out off the midfielder.
Two subs made by Ukraine but it's done nothing to change the flow of the game as Ireland continue to press, with a good McCabe cross well-cleared by Schmatko.
Ireland on top in every area of the game and yet trail thanks to an own goal from Aine O'Gorman. A missed penalty from Katie McCabe and Rianna Jarrett's shot cleared off the line the missed opportunities for Ireland, who will be confident of getting the point they need in the second half.
So close! Jarrett is played through by a wonderful ball from Heather Payne. She has the awareness to check back and stab the ball past Sanina but there's not enough pace to take it over the line and Schmatko is able to nick the ball off the line.
Ireland caught in possession and Apanaschenko breaks on the right before flashing a shot across the face of goal.
A rare venture forward yields a corner for Ukraine. Andruschak cross low towards the near post and Caldwell is first in to clear.
Ireland really turning the screw now and Jarrett looks to feed the ball back to O'Sullivan in the area but her pass is just too short. Ireland moving the ball very well.
McCabe swings in a free kick from the right but again it's well defended and Ukraine get the goal kick.
Uncertain moment for Ukraine keeper Sanina as she flaps at a deep McCabe cross and just about gets away with it.
It wasn't the worst penalty in the world but she fair blasted that one. Ukraine very, very lucky, as Schmatko should really have been shown a second yellow.
What a pass that was from McCabe to find Jarrett in the build-up.
Penalty Ireland as Denise O'Sullivan is taken down by Schmatko, who has already been booked.
Ireland have managed to get back on top but hard to understate just how big a blow that goal is. Ireland were completely dominant but struggled to create against a defensive Ukraine side, and now find themselves behind.
Ukraine playing with a bit more vim now and trying those searching balls in behind but Scott is live to it on this occasion and the move breaks down.
Aine O'Gorman (Republic of Ireland Women) scores an own-goal! Disaster for Ireland, from nothing, as a speculative pass to the left wing is cut out by Ireland's right back and the pace of the ball catches Courtney Brosnan in the Ireland goal out. A disaster for the keeper.
Tempo has dropped a little now and Ireland are happy to play it around the back and build up the field slowly.
And out of nothing, Ukraine have a chance to take the lead as Boychenko cross towards Kozlova, and O'Gorman does brilliantly to get her head in first to clear.
The Irish pressure is relentless and Aine O'Gorman gets forward to pump in a cross, but Ukraine are able to hack it clear.
Good effort from Katie McCabe from the free kick, curling her shot onto the top of the bar. Sanina probably just about had it covered if it had dipped under.
Lyubov Shmatko had an eventful game in Dublin 12 months ago: scored her side's first goal as they fought back from 2-0 and then scored an own goal to give Ireland the win.
Good work from O'Sullivan to turn defence into attack and she curls a nice ball down the left flank for Jarrett to chase, and Sanina comes a long way off her line to avert a one-on-one.
Ireland continue to pressurise and a nice pass from Denise O'Sullivan finds Payne wide on the right, but her cross is cleared. Harriet Scott dispossesses the full back on the turn and takes an early shot but she can't keep it down.
Another corner for Ireland but it's less accurate this time and Ukraine are able to clear, but aleady a patterm is emerging where they kick the ball straight back to the visitors.

McCabe switches it up this time and drills the ball in low to where Jarrett has peeled away, but the ball hits her standing foot and spins clear.
Another Irish corner, from the right this time, and Ukraine manage to scramble it behind for a third successive corner.
Katie McCabe's corner finds Louise Quinn deep in the box but she can't quite get enough on her header to trouble Sanina in the Ukraine goal.
Superb play down the left from Heather Payne as she outpaces the fullback and drives in towards goal, but she can't pick out Rianna Jarrett in the box.
The big news in the Irish side is that Courtney Brosnan has won the three-way battle for the goalkeeper's shirt, after Marie Hourihan was left out of the squad. Rianna Jarrettt edges out Leanne Kiernan for the lone striker role.
The stakes are simple: Ukraine need nothing less than a win to keep their qualification hopes alive. A draw guarantees Ireland second place, and a win would place Ireland well for grabbing one of the three best runners-up spots.
