Live Updates for Shelbourne -v- Waterford

Updates by

90' + 8'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Shelbourne and Waterford.

And that is that as Waterford hold out for John Sheridan's first win as manager of the Blues. Shels will have been left dissapointed with their lack of chance creation but in truth they weren't goo denough to deserve more than a point. Waterford full value for their win. 

Andrew Dempsey signing off, Dave Donnelly will have his report online shortly! 

90' + 7'

Substitution

Darragh Power replaces Olawutunmise Sobowale for Waterford.

90' + 6'

Yellow Card

Brian Murphy is booked for Waterford.

90' + 5'

One minute remains, and unfortunately for Shels fans - that may very well be that....

90' + 4'

Gary Deegan looks to be going down with cramp, but in typical Gary Deegan fashion he continues...

90' + 2'

Ciaran KIlduff knocks the ball onto Jaze Kabia, but Kabia's cross is well held by Brian Murphy - Niall O'Keefe was ready to come on for Waterford but has since taken a step back into stands..

90'

There will be SIX minutes of added time...

89'

Ryan Brennan gets time and space on the ball, but his diagonal ball into the box is cut out by Sobowale. Shels are running out of time here....

88'

Free Kick

Shelbourne have won a free kick. Sean Quinn will take it.

87'

Alex Phelan goes down after Colin McCabe catches the ball after a high bounce. There wasn't much in that at all

85'

Substitution

Alex Phelan replaces Kurtis Byrne for Waterford.

80'

Shelbourne continuing to press but the chances of an equaliser look to be getting slimmer by the minute. They need to up the ante here if they are to get anything from the game...

76'

Substitution

Alex O'Hanlon replaces Lorcan Fitzgerald for Shelbourne.

76'

Substitution

Ciarán Kilduff replaces Aaron Dobbs for Shelbourne.

73'

Longbottom and Coote combine well to put a cross into the box but Kurtis Byrne can't convert as the ball went slightly behind him. Two more Shels subs getting ready to come on...

72'

Corner Kick

Waterford have won a corner kick. Shane Griffin will take it.

70'

Substitution

Dayle Rooney replaces Karl Sheppard for Shelbourne.

70'

Substitution

Sean Quinn replaces Brian McManus for Shelbourne.

70'

Corner Kick

Waterford have won a corner kick. Shane Griffin will take it.

69'

Sean Quinn and Dayle Rooney look set to come on for Morris' rudderless Shels... First Waterford will have a corner

67'

Still little to shout about here at Tolka as Waterford continue to look comfortable - they need a goal, and quick...

64'

Free Kick

Shelbourne have won a free kick. Colin McCabe will take it.

61'

Shane Griffin has an effort on goal but it goes wide. Seconds later, Matty Smith engineers a good chance for Waterford but can't muster up a decent effort on target

59'

Substitution

William Longbottom replaces John Martin for Waterford.

58'

John Martin requires attention and will be coming off as Will Longbottom gets ready to come on..

56'

Corner Kick

Shelbourne have won a corner kick. Karl Sheppard will take it.

Sheppard's corner falls to Luke Byrne at the back post but the ex-Hoop can only fire over the bar. Shels are growing into this game..

54'

SHELS NEARLY LEVEL! 

Aaron Dobbs goes on a great run, focing the Waterford defence to scramble the ball away - the ball falls to Karl Sheppard but Sam Bone stands up well to the effort as Waterford hold firm as Shels earn a corner...

53'

Free Kick

Waterford have won a free kick. Shane Griffin will take it.

52'

Brian McManus has a good effort from distance but it is straight at Brian Murphy who collects well...

49'

Once again, a quiet enough start to a second half game in the LOI restart. Can Waterford maintain this fitness or will Shels push on? This will be an intriguing battle...

46'

Substitution

Ryan Brennan replaces Alex Cetiner for Shelbourne.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Shelbourne and Waterford has started.

45' + 4'

Half Time

It is half-time between Shelbourne and Waterford.

Waterford lead at the break in Tolka through John Martin's 15th minute strike. Shelbourne haven't created much and will need to improve ahead of the second half.. I will be back very shortly after my half-time break. 

45' + 3'

Corner Kick

Shelbourne have won a corner kick. Brian McManus will take it.

45' + 2'

Free Kick

Shelbourne have won a free kick. Karl Sheppard will take it.

45'

There will be only two minutes of additional time...

45'

Free Kick

Shelbourne have won a free kick. Daniel Byrne will take it.

43'

Matthew Smith goes on a searching run but his shot barely threatens Colin McCabe in the Shels goal. Waterford look comfortable here...

40'

Yellow Card

Brian McManus is booked for Shelbourne.

39'

Brian McManus again goes on a daisy cutting run but he falls over himself as Sobowale clears well. McManus and Sonowale have had a good match up so far...

36'

Yellow Card

Shane Griffin is booked for Waterford.

Griffin may be a lucky boy to stay on the pitch there - to be fair there was two of them at it but that did look dangerous... Both teams still have eleven anyway.

34'

Drama here at Tolka as both Fitzgerald and Griffin both go down. One player may be off here.... This will be interesting

32'

Very little to report on over the past as Karl Sheppard goes down looking for treatment - a very sudden water break is taking place also 

27'

Brian McManus does well to get past Sobowale initially but the right-back recovers well as Shels earn a thrown in. Nothing comes of it...

24'

Shelbourne are struggling to deal with Waterford at times this afternoon - John Sheridan's side have looked quite good, despite not many knowing an awful lot about them heading into today...

21'

'It's our f****** ball' says Shels full back Lorcan Fitzgerald. I wonder did the TV cameras pick that one up :D 

18'

There's been a very strange humming noise coming from the PA system here at Tolka Park - I've never noticed it before so maybe that just shows what Tolka is like with no crowd at all..

15'

ASSIST!

Kurtis Byrne provided the assist.

15'

GOAL!

John Martin scores for Waterford.

WATERFORD LEAD! Tyreke Wilson's cross finds Sobowale at the back post who heads the ball into danger. Colin McCabe deals with the ball but the ball came back to Matty SMith. He couldn't score but Martin was on hand to convert as the Blues take the lead! 

14'

Free Kick

Shelbourne have won a free kick. Lorcan Fitzgerald will take it.

11'

The game is starting to slow down a tad, with both teams shape starting to show. Shels look to be using a 4-4-2 with Dobbs and Sheppard leading the line.. 

Waterford look to be playing with a 4-2-3-1 shape..

8'

Shelbourne now enjoying a bit of the play, forcing a corner from Sobowale after some desperate looking play from the Waterford back-line. Ali Coote however has impressed so far

7'

Corner Kick

Shelbourne have won a corner kick. Karl Sheppard will take it.

4'

GREAT CHANCE! 

Waterford almost take the lead through John Martin. The former Seagull loan star was fed in by Ali Coote but he could not convert as Dan Byrne looked to be caught unaware. Early scare for the Reds.

4'

A decent start for Waterford who begin the game on the front foot. SHane Griffin's corner is however well cleared by Dan Byrne I think....

2'

Corner Kick

Waterford have won a corner kick. Shane Griffin will take it.

GAME ON!

The game between Shelbourne and Waterford has kicked off.

0'

And now the teams are on their way out onto the pitch! A slightly eery atmosphere in Tolka this afternoon but we'll take it! 

0'

Of course, both teams come into the game with identical records - with both teams winning two and losing two. Both have lost and won away from home.. 

0'

Both teams have now gone back inside to their respective changing rooms - with Shels down at the Drumcondra End of the ground while Waterford look to be getting set in the Tolka Bar. 

KO in just under ten minutes time!

Shelbourne have not lost against Waterford since May 2017, when they lost 1-0 at the RSC as the Blues marched their way to the First Division league title.

Since then, Waterford have failed to defeat the Reds on three occasions, with Shelbourne winning once.

Shels have yet to score more than one goal per game since their return to the top-flight, although they have won on two occasions thus far.  

0'

Teams in here at Tolka Park and there are four changes from Waterford's most recent league outing in March, with debuts for Sobowale, Robbie Weir and Kurtis Byrne. 

Ian Morris' Reds have made six from their defeat away to Bohs in March - with Brian McManus and ALex Cetiner both starting. KO not long away now!

Andrew Dempseyt on duty here and I will be taking you all through the action. Kick-off is at 2pm.
