Oh Jack Brady completely miskicks and the ball goes past the keeper and out for a corner. The keeper is lucky he wasn't directly in front of the goal! 

31'

A ball to Fernandes and he is away. Oh he has a heavy first touch and it allows McGinty to come out and he gets to the ball before the former Cobh player can. A really good opportunity for the home side there.  

30'

We have reached the half hour and Shels are up thanks to that gary Deegan powerful strike. Sligo have had a few half chances plus that Junior header that went just wide. 

27'

Oooh the free into the box and Junior's header runs just wide of the post.

Yellow Card

23'

Yellow Card

Oscar Brennan (Shelbourne) is booked.

22'

Well I was just mentioning how I rarely see a goal when I cover games and that showed me. Now what can Sligo Rovers do in response to that goal.

20'

GOAL!

Gary Deegan (Shelbourne) scores. Kilduff let it roll to Deegan and he BLASTED it in off the bar. Superb strike from the Shels captain.

18'

16'

15'

Free-kick to Sligo well inside the Shels half. Play stopped though as Georgie Poynton is down injured. 

13'

Jack Brady called into action from a Ronan Coughlan attempt but the Shels keeper takes it easily enough. 

12'

Sligo Rovers probing the Shels back line but the home side are equal to anything the try

10'

As I was saying a lively start to this game. Sligo had the best of the opening but Shels are coming more and more to the fore in the last five minutes. 

9'

Shels on the attack but haven't cut out any clear chances from it. 

8'

Both sides having a go of it here. It is pretty open in these early stages. 

6'

A lot of the play is on the camera side of the pitch. Back in the day when I used to film games, I'd almost have the camera at a 90 degree angle pointing downwards to get the action recorded. It was always a little more daunting when the stand below was full and bouncing from the crowd below. 

6'

Kilduff may be in here but Mahon recovers and tackles just as Shels attacker was about to shoot. 

5'

Devers cross for Sligo Rovers but it lands in the stand behind the goal. 

4'

Sligo Rovers with a high press and putting Shels under pressure the moment the get the ball in their half. 

2'

Sligo Rovers win the first free-kick of the game on the half-way line but the free forward by Banks is straight to a Shels player.
