28'

Matty Smith bundles over Aaron McEneff in a dangerous position. Jack Byrne lines up the free kick - up and over the wall and up and over the bar by a little bit.

25'

The usual pattern of lots of possession for Rovers trying to pass around a team that are happy to sit off. Blues breaking when they can though but their delivery into the box hasn't been great. Pico Lopes getting his head to anything that comes his way.

21'

Graham Burke rounds Brian Murphy running onto a Dylan Watts through ball but he puts the ball in the side net. What a let off for the Blues. 

19'

Jake Davidson cuts out a long Ronan Finn cross from the right that the Hoops captain was trying to find Aaron Greene with.

12'

Usual 4-3-3 formation for Rovers. 4-4-1-1 for the Blues with Kurtis Byrne in behind Michael O'Connor who is leading the line.

11'

The Hoops getting a bit more time on the ball as Waterford aren't pressing as much as AC Milan.

6'

Aaron Greene goes so close to scoring. His shot is just about saved by Murphy and the ball almost bounces in but Sobowale does so well to clear from right under the crossbar - great bit of defending.

3'

Aaron McEneff gets on the end of Aaron Greene's cross from the left but his header is straight at Brian Murphy.

1'
