90' + 3'

FULL TIME!

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

A huge win for St Patrick's Athletic who see off Shelbourne by two goals to nil. The Reds failed to build on a good start as O'Donnell's Saints ran out comfortable winners. Andrew Dempsey over and out! 

90'

There will be three minutes to be played in injury time...Not that it matters an awful lot to be honest...

84'

Free Kick

Jordan Gibson(St. Patrick's Athletic) takes a free-kick.

81'

There has been plenty of great pressing from the hosts subs Ben McCormack and Darragh Burns since they have come on. Shels have struggled to get much of a repsonse going this evening in the second-half...

79'

Free Kick

George Poynton(Shelbourne) takes a free-kick.

77'

You wonder what Ian Morris' next call is to save this game - they have looked devoid of ideas in the second half and are in real trouble this evening...

75'

Substitution

Ben McCormack (in) - Darragh Markey (out) (St. Patrick's Athletic).

75'

Substitution

Martin Rennie (in) - Georgie Kelly (out) (St. Patrick's Athletic).

73'

Right-back Rory Feely has put in a superb shift for the hosts tonight, and he is the next to head clear with Jaze Kabia lurking in the background.. Two changes coming for Pats...

70'

Claims for a St Patrick's Athletic penalty as Georgie Kelly falls down in the penalty area - but referee Hennessy turns away the protests.. Still 2-0 to the Saints! 

67'

Shelbourne are running out of time here and have called upon the services of Ciaran Kilduff in an attempt to save the game. If they salvage something from this, it may may go down as one of their great recent results! 

65'

Substitution

Ciarán Kilduff (in) - Aaron Dobbs (out) (Shelbourne).

65'

Substitution

Shane Farrell (in) - Dayle Rooney (out) (Shelbourne).

64'

Substitution

Darragh Burns (in) - Jason McClelland (out) (St. Patrick's Athletic).

63'

Gary Deegan has put in an excellent shift for the visitors this evening - clearing up any loose ball that fall into his path. As I type, Darragh Burns gets ready to come on for the Saints...

60'

Free Kick

Chris Forrester(St. Patrick's Athletic) takes a free-kick.

58'

CLOSE FOR THE SAINTS! 

Georgie Kelly races throiugh on goal but there is Colin McCabe who makes a great save to deny the ex-UCD forward from clsoe range... Shels need a reaction very soon. 

56'

ASSIST!

Robbie Benson(St. Patrick's Athletic) provides the assist.

55'

GOAL!

Rory Feely (St. Patrick's Athletic) scores.

GOALLLL! St Patrick's Athletic take a two-nil lead through the head of Rory Feely. Feely wriggles away from Daniel Byrne to see his glancing header fly into the back of Colin McCabe's net... 2-0 to St Patrick's Athletic! 

55'

Corner Kick

Robbie Benson(St. Patrick's Athletic) takes a corner-kick.

54'

Jordan Gibson is growing in influence in the game - and so are his Pats temmates. This second goal will be crucial! 

52'

Shelbourne have started the second-half with a real vigour and intensity to their play - but it is Georgie Kelly with the first effort on goal but he shoots harmlessly over the bar for the hosts....

49'

Jason McClelland remains a threat on the right-hand side of the pitch - but as I type both Lee Desmond and Jaze Kabia are treated for a mid-air collison. They are both OK to continue...

46'

Substitution

Jaze Kabia (in) - Denzil Fernandes (out) (Shelbourne).

46'

SECOND HALF

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

45'

HALF TIME

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

One-nil to the hosts as Chris Forrester's wonderstrike has them ahead. Not an awful lot to talk abou following the opener but I'm sure the Saints won't mind one bit... I'll be back shortly! 

44'

Corner Kick

Jason McClelland(St. Patrick's Athletic) takes a corner-kick.

43'

While the action in terms of attacking intent has subsided - Luke McNally has really impressed for the hosts. You can see why he was so in demand during the off-season...

40'

Yellow Card

Jordan Gibson (St. Patrick's Athletic) is booked.

39'

Mark Byrne - who is making his first Shelbourne start - fires over the bar after some good play from Ian Morris' side

38'

The game has settled down in a sense - with St Patrick's Athletic starting to enjoy plenty of possession but SHelbiurne remain a threat on the break... 

34'

Shelbourne are lining up as expected in a 4-3-3 with Aaron Dobbs leading the line, while Georgie Kelly is the focal point of the hosts 4-2-3-1 shape... It remains one-nil to the Saints! 

31'

Yellow Card

Georgie Kelly (St. Patrick's Athletic) is booked.

30'

Oscar Brennan does superbly well to disposses Robbie Benson and he clears the ball away for a throw-in. This game has not let up in terms of intensity just yet! 

27'

Dayle Rooney once again has the beating of Rory Feely but Luke McNally once again clears the danger - if he hadn;t the hosts were in trouble there! 

24'

Dayle Rooney cuts in from the left-flank for Shelbourne - but his cross is headed clear by Luke McNally in the Saints defence... Shels have pushed on since going behind!  

23'

Free Kick

Gary Deegan(Shelbourne) takes a free-kick.

21'

There is a real intensity to this game - and both benches are getting really involved in proceedings. Ian Morris said he wanted his side to bring their own atmosphere to the game, and it looks like Pats have too! 

19'

Corner Kick

Chris Forrester(St. Patrick's Athletic) takes a corner-kick.

18'

ASSIST!

Jason McClelland(St. Patrick's Athletic) provides the assist.

17'

WHAT A GOAL FROM CHRIS FORRESTER! Forrester picks up on a pass from the right-wing, before he arrows the ball into the top corner of Colin McCabe's goal! 1-0 to the Saints! 

14'

Jason McClelland goes close again but he can only drive his effort over Colin McCabe's bar - much to the dismay of the St Patrick's Athletic bench who are siitting in front of me! 

13'

PENALTY CLAIM FOR ST PATS! 

Jason McClelladn looked to have been hauled down by Daniel Byrne but referee Rob Hennessy waved away the protests... I think that was the right call however..

12'

Chris Forrester(St. Patrick's Athletic) takes a corner-kick.

Georgie Kelly's glancing header is well saved by Colin McCabe in the Shelbourne goal...

GREAT CHANCE FOR SHELS! 

Sean Quinn's header is saved by a superb Brendan Clarke fingertip as it looked like Ian Morris' Reds were about to take the lead! Denzil Fernandes' cross found Quinn but Clarke saved well! 

6'

4'

And the players on their way out onto the pitch - predictions anyone? This has the makings of a real cracker - or else it's going to be a scoreless draw.. Don't blame me if I jinx it!

In the day's earlier game - Waterford defeated Sligo Rovers by a goal to nil courtesy of a Matty Smith screamer - a huge night awaits in Inchicore! KO at 7.30pm...

0'

Of course - St Patrick's Athletic have not scored in their last six games - but Shelbourne have not won in their previous five... Something may have to give this evening...

Three changes for Shels. Oscar Brennan in for the suspended Luke Byrne, Mark Byrne and Aaron Dobbs start, with Ryan Brennan and Ciaran Kilduff on the bench. 

For the hosts, there are two changes from their draw against SLigo Rovers - with Jason McClelland and Darragh Markey coming in for Billy King and Jamie Lennon...

St Patrick’s Athletic have failed to score in their previous five league games – with their last set of league goals coming in their two-nil home league win over Finn Harps in August.

Shelbourne have won twice since the League of Ireland restart, but they have only lost once in their previous six games in all competitions.

Stephen O’Donnell’s Saints have scored just six league goals all season this year, but they have only conceded ten goals in their twelve league outings
